Last Saturday I hurt my back by sitting on the floor against the couch. I was showing John new photos I’d had printed from the computer. I hadn’t done it in three years or so, I had over 200. Sitting there for only five minutes I felt my lower back begin to strain.
When I finally did get up I started to complain. Long story short I spent the next day in bed with ice/heat every 20 minutes and a therapeutic dosage of ibuprofen.
I had to get to work on Monday! The hammer was coming down on that nagging co-worker I’m always going on about. I did end up at work only to find out the hammer wasn’t coming until Wednesday!
Alison was great nursing me all day. John gives it a good try too, but he has such a military bedside manner. Barking out questions:
“Need anything?” “Here, take this.” “Hungry?” “What do you need?”
Happy ending; rest in bed and a Breaking Bad binge!
