Thank you for all the well-wishes and good thoughts. I wish I had something more exciting to post so unless you want juicy details on the first three seasons of Mad Men, it's just a health update.
Wednesday was the worst pain day and I hadn't had much sleep in the previous four nights. I was a wreck! I got an emergency appointment with our primary physician because I needed pain medicine. He prescribed a small amount of pain killers and muscle relaxers which were a godsend, really. I have been sleeping like a baby. I've seen the Chiropractor daily and by Thursday evening I felt like a little progress was made. This morning was the best morning of all, still in pain, but I can actually move around a bit better. I was able to get in and out of the tub! You have no idea how wonderful that long hot soak felt. Just heavenly.
I'm back at the Chiro tomorrow and Tuesday I'm going to try acupuncture for the first time. I'm excited because I have read so many great reports about pain relief stemming from acupuncture treatments.
If you've ever tried acupuncture, I would love to hear your experiences.
I'm getting fatter by the second. No movement and stress eating is a bad combination. I'm trying not to stress about it because stress just exacerbates the back pain. Hopefully by this time next week I'll be well enough to start my walking again. Rob is out at the mountain with Tally right now and I wish I could be with them. The Diabetes walk is just two months away and I will devastated if I can't participate.
Tally has been doing so well, her tummy troubles seem to be well behind us and she's been so sweet to me, it's almost like she senses that I'm not quite myself.
Until next time...send healing vibes my way, be happy, be healthy and always protect your back no matter what you do!
