Hanging in there…


Just a quick update. I was going on my 3rd day with the  pain in my right hip and back and decided to go to urgent care to see if I could get medication. I had tried both the orthopedist and primary doctor and only heard back from the ortho doctor I didn’t even know. He didn’t have my chart, so he wasn’t going to give me anything. I waited 7 hours for his call for nothing. It seems that first you see the orthopedist and then they want you to get physical therapy. No medication for pain, just OTC stuff.  So I did try the PT, and boy have I been suffering. I pulled a muscle or muscles big time!  It’s stabbing pain and when I mostly go to sit down or even walk. Sean had seen the same doctor. She was kind of straight forward. At the time I went, I had taken the last Aleve in the house and they normally don’t agree with me. I wasn’t hurting as much there like I do at home. I did get pain pills and a muscle relaxant and have taken both. They help a little, but I’m still hurting when they wear off a bit. I also had to proof read a paper for Sean that took a few hours to do, but I kept standing up and walking around.

The sofa and chair are coming tomorrow! That meant Brian vacuuming, moving stuff and pretty much getting the house in jumble. I can’t wait as I will be sitting on the club chair and ditching the computer chair.

Here’s hoping I will be more myself in a few days. I wouldn’t wish this discomfort on my worst enemy! Take care of your backs!

Here’s the only thing that is fully decorated. I’m not too worried about this, but I am more worried about wrapping things. May have to wait until the last minute.


I will take a better photo soon!

  1. Awwww you poor thing, I’m so sorry that you’ve been suffering so much with your back. No fun at all!! Especially at this time of year when there’s so much to do. If I lived near I’d go help you out!! Hopefully you’ll soon find something to take that will relieve all the pain…usually muscle relaxants do the trick.

    No doubt you’re super excited that your new sofa and chair will be arriving any moment now:-) Tell Brian he now has to clean up all the mess he did making room for them! lol

    Love your feather tree with the special little ornaments on them:-) xoxo
