Flat on my back…

This is gonna be short.  I am flat on my back, somehow I managed to pop my lower back out.  Yesterday Hubby wanted to me to go the Chiropractor, and I should have.   Last night, I was sicker than a 21 year old in a packed bar for the first time, with everyone buying a birthday shot for her…in addition to being in serious pain, yuck!  This morning I asked Hubby to take me to the Doc.   The bad news was, they didn’t open until 3pm.   Longest 6 hours of my life waiting to get to the doc….

He took x-rays and some other funky thing, here’s a picture:  Click on the picture to see it bigger, and really see the damage.

The top left box is what a normal scan should look like, the one below is mine (not pretty) the red bar is where I am out the worst and the green is what is hurting because it’s trying to balance out my back and is additionally being pulled out.   So…then he finally cracked me…I didn’t feel instantly better, matter of fact I cried several times.  I was hurting THAT bad.

He wants to see me tomorrow morning, and Saturday morning for sure, he said possibly Sunday, but definately Monday.  I have to stay flat and can only really get up to use the bathroom.   I’m not happy about that.  Freckles is here!  I feel like such a terrible Steph-mom…sucks!   BabyAm is helping with the laundry and being my personal slave nurse.

Might be quiet for a few days, it’s tough to type laying down. 


  1. Ouch, Hope you get back to feeling better.
    I’m getting better at REAL guitar, and I want to play for you guys when I can paly a song well. But having that doesn’t help!

    Get better, and be nice to you slav-I MEAN Nurse!

    Dream On too, even if they’re just daydreams.
