Because It Always Comes In Threes...  

Ms. Lois spent two hours of last night in the ER at Memorial Hospital. *rolls eyes disgustedly* I twisted a muscle in my lower back at work. And it was doing something stupid. I was just swapping out product baskets when I got a back spasm. And it kept happening every time I moved. So... *sigh* I'm on painkillers and muscle relaxants with a MD's note. I can go back to work tomorrow if I feel better, but I'm to be light duty until Friday. It just figures.

However, I'm still getting my write on, which makes me happy. It's just standing up for too long or trying to sit down that hurts. I lean too far forward or backward and it's for the suck. *makes face* And you guys know how much I hate being dependant. *pouts* I can haz okay back nao? *headdesk*

Dude! That totally happened to one of my co-workers a couple of weeks ago!

Feel better!!

Tell me that it gets better quickly. *bites lip* Because the pain sucks muchly.

It does get better! She came back a few days later; she just couldn't bend over far or lift heavy things.

At least your back didn't go out on your birthday like hers did...

Thank God, I managed not to do that. *LOL*

BTW, do you think you're going to have a chance to get to the beta before Friday? The last thing I want is to sound pushy at all, but I'm worried about getting it in before deadline. *snuggles*

Aw, crap! O_O *gentle hugs*

I've had issues with my shoulder and neck for years now, so I know where you're coming from. Nothing worse that leaning down to blow your nose and not being able to straighten out again. O_o

Hope you feel better soon, hon. *more hugs*

I hope so, too. This lying down and doing nothing thing got old last month when I was laid up for a week. *grumbles*

eeek! I hope you feel better soon! <3

Me, too. This being laid up again is for the birds. *makes face* I've been doing too much of this lately.

Young lady, please take care of that spine. Just one year ago this week I spent six and a half hours in surgery getting a titanium cage built around my lower spine from S1 up to L2.

Finally, last week, the doctor told me all is healed and I can go back to working out.

Please take care.

Oh, sweetheart! I'm so glad that that's over with for you. What a rotten thing to have to deal with!

And I am, although the inactivity is making me crazy. Really crazy. I'm having to dictate the writing from the bed. I hate it. I had to sneak on while Anissa's at work to reply to these. Expect for me to hear about it when she finds out.

*hugs and a kiss* Thanks, James T. Someone always has to talk some sense into Little Miss Stubborn.

You take care of your self, Work can wait, well I would say something else but I promise not to use profanity on my comment about work in general. I haven't had my back go out in a very long time and I'm grateful, I know how much of a pain it is had it happen when I worked on a horse farm. Mine still has it's moments where something will hurt but not anything to bad.

Anyway *Hugs*

Get better soon.

It isn't so bad if I stay lying down, but if I just sit up a little too long, it really starts to hurt. Leaning over at the moment is impossible. I just hope that it clears up before the end of the week. I can't afford to be out much longer than that and they're playing as stupid as they can on the Worker's Comp info.

I'll just be glad when it's over. *sigh*
