Many of you know that a few weeks ago, I got back on the diet bandwagon and also started to do my walking again. I was feeling so energized and could start to see small differences in my legs. I would go for my long power walk and then swing by the house to pick up Dewey and take him once around the block at a slower pace. Well, last wed and thurs I decided to start taking Dewey with me on the whole walk, (he's on a diet too). On thursday I also tried to keep his leash shorter and to try and get him to heal with me, instead of always pulling. He is already a 65pound dog, and little did I realize at the time of our walk, that I was doing damage to my low back. On friday, I got the kids off to school and ran some errands, and it was then, that my low back really began to ache. By the evening it was killing me, and I had to teach 6 couples how to give birth the next am, so I HAD to get some relief. So, I called the best chiropractor in the world, Dr.K, and she dropped everything and came to my rescue. By the next morning I was still sore, but able to go teach class.....unfortunately, my back didn't think that was so great, and by Sunday am at 5:00 I was in such misery. It was pain worse than giving birth in my book!!! So here I am today, tuesday, still battling the on and off muscle wrenching pain in my back. Dr. K is coming everyday this week to see if we can get it under control for good. I tell ya, I have some great moments where I think, Hey, this is really improving, then litterally the next hour I am bent over in pain. I just want to get back to normal again!!
I do feel very blessed right now, even with the pain. My friends and family have been GREAT!! I have gotten 2 FABULOUS meals from Julie and Kathaleen, which is spoiling us all!! YUM YUM YUM is all i can say. Thank you guys again. You are so sweet. Also a HUGE TY to Julie, for always calling to see if i am in need of my McDonald's diet coke, and bringing it to my door. WOW, what a friend and neigbor:) Thank you to mom and dad, for taking Brooke to play and lunch, and then to her dance class. What would I do without you two AGAIN!!! They also brought me a huge diet coke yesterday too. Sad, huh that everyone knows that's what gets me through the days! Well, my back has had enough time in this position I am in right now, so I will end this long post! Please pray that my back will be "back" to normal SOON. Thank you.
