Thanks Ric and others who have been concerned. Two weeks ago Friday the 1st I got up to bad back spasms in the middle of the back. I see Dr. Rob, the chiropractor periodically he makes things fine. i went on about my meeting Joyce at the bookstore but as the afternoon wore on they became much worse. I stopped by his office the on the way for a treatment. Buy by six pm I am in excruciating pain. I call my doctor but a muscle relaxer but by 11 pm i was in horrible pain.

I called EMS to take me to the emergency room. they gave me iv pain killers and did a CT of back and stomach. Needless to say it has a been all down here from that point. The spams finally stopped first of this week so Dr. Ambler changed my pain meds twice until one started working. I am unable to each much so I don’t have a lot of strength. This afternoon we had a phone conference. He call in another refill to the pain meds to get me through until I go for MRI on Monday.

Since I was out I decided to do a little bit of shopping. What a chore but I got what I needed.

So that’s where things stand. I can just barely function to feed and take Coin out, Hopefully we will get the bottom of all this next week.

    Sorry to hear of your back issues. Not fun. Glad to hear from you, though.

    Hope you are better soon.

    Good to hear you are almost OK. Perhaps one of the friends you occasionally talk about can come over and help you. It must be difficult facing this alone. All of us over on Bob’s old site wish you the best. Get very well soon.

    That all sounds scary, I’m glad you have a plan and are working it. I hope you get some good results soon. I’m in my 26th year of living with my broken back. The vertebrae healed but the pain is still there, every day. On bad days it can be terrifying… so hang in there, and lean on us if you think of any way we can help.
