my mom

For those of you, who have not met my mom, or whom have met her, and didn't notice anything peculiar about her, she is a petite little lady. She also suffers from chronic pain - and can be seen shuffling around the house with her beautiful blue eyes partially open. She uses many things to curb her pain - devices and pills, that Jason has become familiar with in his seven years with our family.

Last night, mom brought out her TENS machine (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator), a method of pain relief. It consists of a tiny control box (transformer) and four wires with electrodes attached to sticky pads. I hooked her all up - attaching the four sticky pads on specific places on her back (careful not to cross any wires, or attach to any large freckles) - and we took her out shopping!

Luckily, we had her jumper cables hooked up just in case there was a stall in our trip!
