This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

A Lightning Bolt Struck My Lower Back...

That is what it felt like....

I was in the process of writing about our great time in Laughlin, meeting Jeanie and her husband Doc.  I took a break from composing on my blog, and decided to play "fetch" with my dog Izzy.  I leaned over to toss her toy for her again, and WHAM-O!!!

It felt like a lightning bolt struck my lower back!

Was in a ton of pain for the first 24 hours. Had to take pain pills. My husband has been a PRINCE and has been doing e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g for me.  Am taking anti-inflammatories and my using my trusty ICY HOT packs.  Not much to do but stay on the couch and sleep.  Feeling less pain.  Should be back to normal in 3-4 days....

My husband brought me my laptop so I could let you all know why I am not answering emails or posting.  I  have a great post I was working on, so stay tuned.... I will finish it and post pictures when I can sit up longer.

I'm so sorry. I was wondering where you were. Will pray for quick relief of pain!

Jeanie said...

Yeah for Jerry being the hero for you. I hope you get better quickly. Just take it easy and let Jerry and Izzy do all the work.
I can't tell you how much we enjoyed meeting both of you. I just wish we could meet Izzy.

All I can say is I hope you feel better really, really soon. PLEASE be careful, when you ARE feeling better, okay?

Hope that pain goes away soon! I know -- a bad back can strike right out of nowhere. Doesn't seem fair.
