So yeah, it's kind of like this



Went to urgent care because I couldn't stand up right and the pain was way past intense on the meter. So I says to myself, "This seems kind of urgent, if only there was a place I could go to".

Then I had a ta-da moment. Why not go to that place down the road that just opened up called "urgent care"?

I am pretty sharp that way...

So the diagnosis is a bulging disk, right above the one that is pretty much missing in my back. They told me long ago that when the missing disk gets to the point where it starts to fuse itself, then it transfers problems to the disk above and below.

I hate it when they are right like that.

So pain killers, steroids, and muscle relaxers, oh my! Then we see if it retracts back to where it belongs.

  1. OUCH! Hon, I feel for you! My husband has been dealing with that for years. Now it has gotten to the point where he is going to need surgery. I hope it works itself out.

    Hows Skyler? Is he going to prom?

  4. I thought urgent care was where they gave you a quick hug, a nice cup of tea and brushed your teeth for you, only urgently.

    Get well soon old bean.

  5. Crossing my fingers, toes and eyes that it gets better with the pain killers, steroids, and muscle relaxers - which, btw, I've heard can be quite fun. Buzzed blogging could get interesting.

  8. You getting one of those fancy boards that onld man Teeter sells on late night infomercials, where you hang upside down. Helpless.

    I'm certain no one in your household would take advantage of you in that situation. Right?

    And look, a medical reason to ditch the running for a while.

    Here's hoping the meds are splendiferous, SkyDad! I fell in mad, passionate love with my meds after my tonsillectomy. *le sigh* Roxicet, I miss you to this day. *sniffle*
