So this is day FOUR down.  I did something to my back and it has hurt like no other pain I’ve ever known! Seriously.  I went running Thursday morning, came home to get the kids off to meet mom for pizza… showered and fixed hair and reached to pick something up when the shooting pain began.  I went ahead and got iz to the car with Bailey’s help and took them to mom.  I got home and realized I could not walk from intense pain, like pass out pain.  It took me almost 20 minutes to get izzy into her chair and then into the house.  I got her in and then just pulled her onto my bed with me where we just layed until I could move.  I got up to find some tyl 3 I had put away and knew it was time to feed her lunch.  Seriously shed some tears during this hour or two! 

Friday was a stay in and try not to move day.  Saturday I got a call from Bear (I had left a message at his office Friday) and he said he could see me, so mom drove me to Edmond.  He worked on me for an hour or so… said my left hip was a bit out of socket (he popped it back and it felt weird), and that there were large knots on my lower back each side (sciatica).  So I left there feeling a little relief. 

I hoped to wake up this morning (Sunday) and be fine.  Didn’t happen which really discouraged me.  I had to put on my big girl panties and just deal with it.  Matt has been a great helper.  He did laundry and has been sweet to bring me things and carry Iz when needed.  Amanda came home for a bit and went to get us lunch today.  Pat (from church) brought spaghetti and lemon bundt cake over yesterday… good thing I won’t go hungry. 🙂

Amanda is going to see U2 in concert tonight.  The concert is at the stadium near her dorm.  She hadn’t planned to go but a friend called this afternoon to ask if she wanted a ticket! She told her no, she needed to study.  (she is very dedicated!)  Matt and I both encouraged her to go and maybe not stay that long just to experience it.  She studied at home until very late last night.  Mike came by and gave her a flu and b12 shot before she left. 

So, that’s about it around here… Melanie is back at school and me and Iz couldn’t be happier.  We missed her!  Izzy made the cutest pumpkin at school Wednesday that I would show a pic of if I could walk to take the pic etc. but just believe me when I say it is precious! 

Oh, one more thing!  Emelia gave Izzy a makeover while I was gone to bear.  She straightened her hair and put makeup (including mascara) on her.  Here’s the pic…

I really hope my back is better tomorrow because all my helpers and lifters will be gone!

I’m so sorry. I have had some trouble with my left hip especially since I started to run. I really don’t want to give it up, but it looks like I might have to. I’ve gone a month this time without running to really let it heal. I pray that you will be able to get this fixed.

Oh, annie, I am so sorry. I deal with back pain and can totally sympathize. I sure hope you are feeling better today.

How fun for Amanda to go to the U2 concert. My oldest is a HUGE fan. He saw them in Boston in September.

Annie, I’m praying for you right now. I can truly say that I can totally empathize with you about your back pain as I was in the same boat last week. I don’t know how you were able to lift Izzy out of the car, that must of been excruciating. I hope and pray by now you are feeling better and that you will not continue to have back problems.

Love ya my friend,

It’s the 22nd already today and I’m just reading this. My heart goes out to you. I did the same thing last Wednesday. By Thursday night I was in emergency because I couldn’t stand the pass out type of pain anymore. I hope you are doing better now today and the pain is all gone.

Oh goodness Annie, that sounds awful 🙁 You posted this a few days ago, so I’m really hoping that you are MUCH better now. I can’t imagine trying to do half of what you do every day with that kind of pain. Feel better soon 🙂

If you have sciatica, the best way to relieve it is to schedule yourself 2 or 3 massages in the next week. It will be pricey and a little painful. But, massage is the best way to relieve it! My husband tried everything–physical therapy, etc! It didn’t work. Finally I called a massage therapist. After 2 sessions he was better!
