Thursday I saw my pain doctor. He is so positive about my overall outcome that it makes me feel better (even though I was in a lot of pain then). He arranged the Medtronic rep for Arizona for the next day. Friday we met at the doctor's office and the pain was reduced. I was keeping my pulse rate low because it was helping me to reduce the pain. I was told that I should try running with the pulse rate higher (and the amp a bit lower). I came back to the lab after seeing the rep, and was throwing up the rest of the day (though the pain wasn't that bad).
Saturday thankfully the pain was very manageable. Sunday I was throwing up all morning due to pain, but by the afternoon it was better. I was exhausted, however. I managed to get home with the pain not being too bad, and feel asleep by the time I got my stuff back in my house.
Anyway, I'm going to get the paperwork started this week for my raise! *woo-hoo* Hopefully by the end of the week, I'll find out how much exactly. More money = more responsibility, so I'm going to get some work done.
