Back Up

It's been an interesting week. On Saturday I was putting my tool box away and I hurt my back. I twisted, bent, then yelped. I was able to slowly stand again without help, but ended up going to bed for the rest of the day. I was still hurting Monday and took the day off work. Today I went to Physiotherapy, and it is feeling a lot better. The PT did a back assessment, figured out that it was not a slipped disk or an SI joint, and that it was a problem with the facet joint. She showed me what had happened on a model of the spine, massaged the joint (helpful afterwards but not all that nice while it's happening), zapped me with some electricity, and gave me some exercises. I'm feeling a lot better, but I'm still moving very slow and being really, really careful.

Hi Shawn,

Sorry to hear you were injured! I hope your back continues to recover.

It was nice to see you quickly this morning. Cory and I will look forward to getting together with you when he gets back!

I'll be glad when Cory gets back. You have no idea how hard his absence has been on me! 8-)

Well you did stick your tongue out at me. Poor little old me, who never provoked you in any way...
