Oy Vey!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had a little accident over here... I thought I'd share my tail of woe... Apparently when you turn 35 you slowly start to fall apart.

On Tuesday I had some minor back pain in the morning... and by 7PM I was literally unable to move without assistance. I was able to get into the doctor the following day... walking in like a 90 year old woman. To add to my worries I was hosting Thanksgiving... and had 10 people coming a huge meal to prep and a house to clean!

It turns out that the problem is likely muscular which I suppose is better than the alternatives... I swear I have not had so much pain outside of childbirth! So I am taking some muscle relaxers and prednisone now... I feel a lot better... the pain comes and goes, but at least I can walk now without help and my back isn't spasming.

Luckily for me I have an amazing husband and a wonderful family. Everyone rallied and helped cook... I basically sat and directed all my wonderful soux chefs! Dinner was delicious and a great time was had by all...

I certainly have a lot to be Thankful for!

So sorry to hear about your back. Did it come on all by itself or had you done anything strenuous? I hope it continues to improve and won't return!

Yikes! It's a great excuse to sit back with your feet up. Try to enjoy the break. It's a good thing we aren't doing that craft show tomorrow!
