down.

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

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!
