I was doing laundry on Sunday the 7th and I think I pulled a muscle in my right side of my lower back while pulling clothes out of the washer. I had so much pain that I couldn't hang clothes and asked David to finish things for me while I took a couple of Tylenol and l went to lay down with the heating pad.
Well things got worse as time went on and I made an emergency appointment with my back doctor just to be safe. The appointment was on the 12th. He took x-rays but it was inconclusive so he had me go in for an MRI last Friday afternoon. But between that time I was to be on muscle relaxers and pain meds which whacked me out. I was so tired all the time and if I sat for too long at the computer I either fell asleep or the pain got to me. When I was lying in bed I either had a heating pad on or an ice pack on my lower back. I have an appointment to see the doctor about the MRI on the 5th of August.
Today I feel a little better. I'm able to sit at the computer a little bit longer but then right after posting I go straight back to the heat and ice treatments in bed. Right now I have an ice pack and a pillow behind me. It helps me to stay at this longer. I've quit taking the muscle relaxers because they make me goofy but that's beside the point. The point is, I can't stop being on the web. I feel the need to keep my two computers going with several windows open to keep me posted on stuff an' thangs.
So that is the gist of what has happened to my silly blogging ass. I'm sorry if y'all missed me. Goddess knows I missed y'all more. We will see what the MRI shows and why I have pain like lightening bolts shooting up and down my right leg on the 5th
