Oh, oh

All that singing in the shower last week? Not so much, now. I was so looking forward to getting tons of stuff done but instead I'm laid up with some of the worst pain ever. (Not as bad as childbirth or a stingray piercing, but BAAAADDD). It appears to be my sciatic nerve, and the only thing to do for it, apparently, is pain pills, heat packs, and finding a way to get comfortable. For me that means lying flat on my back mostly, though I'm also trying the sofa.
I didn't go to the dr. on Friday, though I wanted to. But sometimes one just doesn't feel good enough to go to the dr.
So I've been trying to get through the weekend, but it's been tough. H is waiting on me hand and foot, including massages to try to ease things. Leila is being super helpful, too, and trying to take my mind off of things with games of Cariboo and Candyland. This morning she told me, "I know what it's like to have pain." I hope she never knows this kind of pain.
This is one of those times when I actually hope for a shot if it can relieve the pain.

Thanks. Not yet, but hopefully soon. Dr. today, and I'm trying to get to the chiropracter!

Blah! Much love and healing prayers! I've never had pain like that but sometimes have truly nasty cramps, and I feel so debilitated. But I guess in a way it reminds me of how blessed I am to not normally be in pain. But it sounds like you often have to deal with rotten back pains! :(

p.s. were you going to be in LA this weekend?

I hope you are feeling better now.
