Hi Penny and All,
    The steroid injections have been postponed until March 30th. The HMO
drug their feet and did not get the authorization # to the doctor in time to
get the procedure done Thursday.
    I had to update any changes in symptoms or impairment with the nurse
during our conversations Thursday morning. I described the "stingers" in my
neck, shoulders and arms, problems with little finger and ring finger on the
right hand. She consulted someone off line, and gave me the next available
appointment to get re-accessed. The new impairments seemed to get them
    New appointment is for the 17th.
