My Aching Back

So, I guess my head wasn't the only part of me that was injured in the Hammock accident of 2011. My back is out of whack. I haven't been in this much pain since I had my tonsils yanked. So, that's that. I am not leaving the couch until Saturday morning, when I have to go back to work.
(I love being the boss and saying boldly, I'm taking tomorrow off because I can't walk properly, thanks!)

Be back tomorrow. Maybe.

Broken Back Beca


  1. Oh no, poor you!! That sucks. Hope it feels better soon! We're on the couch(es) too, but because we're sick :( BOOO.

  2. Beca alternate hot and cold, and take anti-inflammatories every 6-8 hours for a few days, even if you don't think you need them. It reduces swelling in the muscles. My father in law is an orthopedic and he gives me the best advice.
    I hope you feel better.
    The upshot is that you get to lay down all day.
    Last week, I got a stomach bug that knocked my ass OUT (and I am pretty much Frank the Tank when it comes to getting sick).
    Alex made me stay in I had tons of chicken noodle soup, Gatorade and watched Jane Austen movies. This is as close to paradise as I've seen in a while:)
