ARTIE WAYNE R.I.P. ROCK IN PERPETUITY!
June 20, 2011
this headline for my own obituary was the last thing I remember typing as I slumped over my keyboard a few days ago, my mouse too heavy for me to lift, my body in so much pain I was praying I would just simply die!
fortunately, I had an appointment with the pain management center in palm springs the next day. I could barely make it from my friend allan’s car to the hospital wheelchair.
I could no longer use my hands or even stand. Then Dr. Lai, who I was seeing for the first time, gave me a non-narcotic shot in the hip (since I refuse to take mind numbing pain killers) and arranged another appointment for me next week, while i agreed to a battery of tests to determine what’s wrong with me.
For three days I felt great, with zero pain, and threw myself into my latest projects, FACEBOOK FRIENDS APPRECIATION DAY and the promotion of my new book, “I DID IT FOR A SONG”. Then this morning I had a relapse and realized I was pushing too hard!
I apologize to everyone I pushed for comments, you can cut and paste them in the area below my article, and the rest of you can check out what’s got me so excited. http://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2011/06/17/facebook-friends-appreciation-day/
In addition to what Dr. Lai did for me I credit a breathing technique I learned a long time ago for helping to save my life. http://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2007/07/02/most-important-thing-ive-learned-on-earth-positive-thinking-brings-results-i-desire/
I plan to lay low for a while and not answer emails or take calls, but if you want to leave a message for me you can do so at http://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2011/05/22/comments-that-people-have-made-about-i-did-it-for-a-song/
Thank you for your prayers, I’ll see you all soon
