Down and Out

Well it finally happened.  If you have spoken with or seen me lately, you probably know I haven't been my same old self.  I've been in a lot of pain at times.  I've taken much medicine to stop the pain in the left side of my back.  It usually helped just so much but not enough to stop the pain in its entirety.  As each day passed, the pain worsened.

It finally peaked last night.  I was hurting so bad that I couldn't sleep.  At 5:00 this morning, Stan loaded me up and took me to the emergency room.  Seems the tree cutting from a couple of weeks ago, my lifting and moving of furniture finally caught up to me.

The doctor gave me a shot and gave me a prescription for a combination muscle spasm and pain pill.  After that, I was ordered to total bedrest for the next 3 days.  For someone like me, not being able to be up and around is going to be VERY tough.  Next week, I'll see the doctor again and then be scheduled for physical therapy.

I am looking forward to life with no pain again.
