This is the day and life of a pin.

Many of you are asking about the pin, so I thought I'd go ahead and update you. The pin. Yeah. No idea. I haven't had an xray since last week Wednesday. But here are some awesome WAY TMI updates about it. (seriously, click away now. it's way too much.)

~ Last week I knew it was still in because I tried to have, um, "relations" and I had to stop because it felt like I was being stabbed. Literally. Last night, it didn't hurt anymore.

~ Two days ago I went to the bathroom and it was all bright red blood. So much I thought I started my cycle. But, yeah, I didn't. But the next time I went there was no blood.

So. I don't know. Those things could of happened due to where the pin was and what position it was in ~or~ it was on it's way out and it scratched me? I don't know. BUT, I did have an MRI on monday for my lower back and they didn't find any crazy bleed (yes, they knew about the pin, said it wasn't a big deal. Let me keep all my metal piercings in too - said the MRI isn't actually that bad with metal, I'd feel a pull/vibration, but it wouldn't pull out of my body or anything), but then again, it was on my spine so I don't know if they'd look at anything else. If I have any other symptoms, I'll do back to doctor. If not, I'm assuming all is good and the pin is in my past. I have three more blankets to make and the large ones take me 6 or so hours each, so I promise not to eat popcorn at the same time as pin removal. :) (Thanks to everyone who asked about my condition!)


A few updates ...

~ I double dated on Monday night and we went to see the Pixies in denver. Great fucking show. They played the ENTIRE doolittle album, as it was the "doolittle tour" because it's the anniversary of the album or something like that. They played the entire album in order. Wow. And then for their ~third~ encore, they played "where is my mind" which isn't on the album. It was fucking amazing.

~ I have a fashion show this sunday of my burlesque friends' clothes making company. I went to a fitting session last night and got to try on super fun clothes. If I had to explain the type of clothes they are, I'd say they are rockabilly. Awesome. I get to wear a halter top and then a little halter jumper. Super cute.

~ Monday comes my 2nd spine injection with the new doctor. They put me under a bit of anesthesia and then do the injections so I'm not worried at all. I hope it brings me some relief.

~ Pumpkin ice cream fucking rocks.

~ I'm starting to wear liquid eye liner and holy cow, it's hard to put on. I look stupid half the time but I figure I need to keep practicing if I want it to eventually look good. Kudos to you out there who can do this and look good. I want to have fake eyelashes too, but I'd need Laurel to put them on me everyday (she put some on my for halloween and it looked amazing!)

~ Kristin sent me some super cool halloween knee socks. Thanks Kristin!!!

Alrighty. I think that's it. Happy Wednesday!

Hi, Nancy! I think it'd be safe to say that the pin is gone because wouldn't an MRI be pretty bad if you had metal in your body? That's really scary they didn't do an x-ray to confirm the pin was gone before giving you the MRI.

Sarah R said...

Ah! That would freak me out (the pin).

That burlesque stuff just sounds so cool. Shall I send you an awesome Christmas sweater to wear instead? *snort*

Kristin said...

Definitely no more pins and popcorn!

I can't do liquid eyeliner either.

Glad you like the socks.

nancy said...

No, they knew about the pin before the MRI. He said it wasn't that big of deal. They let me keep all my piercings in too.

I hope the pin has passed.. ;)

And I agree, pumpkin ice cream ROCKS!

Ack! I thought liquid eyeliner was endemic to the town my husband grew up in...maybe it's just black liquid eyeliner. My SIL wears it all the time, and I recently met my husband's first love (at the airport! WTF?) and she was wearing the same shit. Keep practicing, because on these two, it looks awful and highlights their sun wrinkles. It may have something to do with the fact that it's the only makeup they're wearing, so it stands out.

Hope the pin has passed!

Lisa said...

I hope that the pin has actually passed.

Make sure you have some pics taken at the fashion show for us to see...

I had a pumpkin pie blizzard from DQ (Do you have DQ there?) and oh my god, it was awesome.

Geochick said...

Hope the pin is long gone! And hopefully your back starts feeling better too. ack.

Birdee said...

Have you thought about getting eyelash extensions? I've seen them and want them, they look so amazing!

Pumpkin ice cream doesn't sound good so maybe I'll have to try it.

Robin said...

I love the pixies. That would have been my dream show. I saw them do a concert on one of our HD channels and it was totally amazing, even now that they are old (heh).

Glad the pin is history! Hope it stays that way!

You should make friends with some Sweet Adelines singers. They know something about false eyelashes.

Bay said...

Didn't know you were going to see the Pixies. I'm a little jealous!

And yes, the eyelashes looked insane on you! I need to teach you to put on eyelashes....you can do it. I love them. You feel so glam...In a not so glam life. Heh.

theclam said...

Glad to hear that the pin is more or less out of the body ;) Hope you get relief for your back sooner rather than later and the burlesque fashion show sounds AWESOME! Post pics ;)

I hope the pin has passed! I can't do liquid eye liner either, I look terrible if I try so I just don't try :)

Sara said...

Liquid eyeliner is impossible to put on - I always look like a clown. Good luck!

The pin - it just sounds so painful. I sure hope it has passed!

jenn said...

I totally thought you had the liquid liner down! Much better job than I have ever been able to do & I am a makeup nut (despite the fact that I rarely wear it anymore!)

Pumpkin ice cream kicks ass & I can't find it here! Suck.

JamieD said...

I loooove pumpkin ice cream. I'm sure it has something to do with only being able to get it two months out of the year!

docgrumbles said...

A local dairy around here make pumpkin pie ice cream that is WONDERFUL - now I feel like going out to get some!

Hope that pin is on its way out!

I have been using liquid liner for over 3 years now... I still have messy days. Maybe that's just 'cause I am a clutz, though.
