Sunday night, while walking the dogs (I think I had Chloe) in the blizzard, I took a decent fall in the snow. I was wearing my slippers that I’ve been using for years with Cassie to take her outside and let’s just say they don’t have the traction that they used to. I’ve fallen in the snow plenty of times and didn’t think anything of it.
The next day I didn’t really feel anything, but after cleaning up the drive way I can admit to feeling a tiny bit sore on my back. But again, didn’t think anything of it. Besides, I did fall.
Tuesday was more of the same, a little sore, but again, I did fall, didn’t think anything of it. Went about my business and enjoyed my day. Melissa and I went out to dinner and I was fine. I drove back home, but by the time I parked in the driveway and got out of the car, I was in pain. I didn’t realize how bad I was until I tried to stand up and their was an excruciating amount of pain coming from my lower back.
I valiantly tried to continue on with some things around the house, but found it difficult to even walk up the stairs. Every time I placed my foot down I questioned whether or not this one would hurt. Needless to say, I was freaking out.
Melissa handled everything that night to the best of her ability and tried to not only keep me calm, but resting while I endured a good deal of pain.
My mind was racing, did I do something extremely bad to my back? How did this happen?I was beside myself. I went to bed and woke up in the exact same position. I did turn but even that was painful.
The next morning was just as bad, if not worse then the night before. I almost decided to stay in bed all day.
At some point in the morning I decided that I wasn’t going to allow my back to ruin my day or my week and I forced myself to get up. I went to the doctor and got some medicine. I’m doing a lot better now…I wasn’t in as big of a rush to take my medicine today, actually just took it a few minutes ago. I’m doing pretty good if I can say so myself.
Also, why not take this post as an excuse to post some recent pictures of Peanut, Cassie and Chloe huh? Enjoy!
