It was strange, i drink my morning coffee always in the same rotan chair, and that morning not completely awake, i had the feeling there was some wrong, something missing ?
Then i realized there was something added in the scenery !
Lesson learned, first the coffee and then opening my eyes !
oh yes, if i died on the floor they would probably sit and look at me and
then go find all the kitty treaters.....LOL
I bought myself a cane to walk through the house, they think it is a toy
and usually get between me and the cane most of the time. I forgot that
to a kitty, everything, including my pillows, are all toys....
Hope it went well at the doctor.
Got several canes, 1 always in the car together with 2 crutches, 1 cane and 2 crutches in the shed, 1 cane in the living room, 1 in the bedroom and 1 in the bathroom.
My back is worn around lumbar 4, so one wrong movement from my upper torso and i am stuck in that position, which can happen ones a year, from mild to very painfull. So keep a small supply of oxycodon and hand in my bag which i always have with me.
we never know in advance when it will happen and where, so better be prepared.
I am finding out how we all suffer something or another during our lives. And it seems that the most creative people like you and our friends on DA have many physical ailments that can pop up and out almost at will most days.
I just went to the doctor last nite after 4 pm, and she told me that carrying 3 cages of kittens
is not healthy back exercises....She said no where in her training as a doctor ever suggests a
person do this. She said it with a smile on her face and we get along very well.
I have lateral and horizontal rods in my back from tumbling down a mountain so I think
I am pretty shored up unless I would fall out of an airplane or something so dramatic. Doctor did xrays and nothing is broken or wrapped around the rods so its 6 or 8 weeks of Physical Therapy for me. Hopefully I will learn how to stave off any further incidences of the sciatic nerve again. I really have never had this kind of pain before and really feel bad for those who have it happen again and again in their lives.
All the best with the tehrapy, and get wll soon.
Therapy will help you, but chanches are it will remain a weak spotm so take care , and care on advance by having a cane handy when required, like one in the car just in case!
