Oh, Alice! I'm so sorry you hurt your back. Listen, try ice instead of heat. That will bring down the swelling and maybe the nerves that are being pinched will be released. When my back goes out, that's what I do. Heat feels good but it won't help the swelling.
I am so sorry for your accident.
Ladies, you were right!! That's what I love about this place. Someone(s) has a good idea how to help me fix my stupid. I put the ice on last night and it did help a bit. I'm going to take a shower and put on my comfy sweats and apply the ice again. I will take some Tylenol or some Tylenol - options, options. I am almost upright, at least my knuckles don't scrape the floor.
Queen Erma said, Housework, done right, can kill you. Wise woman. I need to remember her wisdom BEFORE I decide to be a Domestic Goddess. I had to do some non-Christmas shopping after dinner, walking around the store was tough just after getting out of the car. By the time I got to checkout, I was doing a bit better. The cashier had been on all day and just had the sweetest way about her. I thought if she can be so pleasant after working a long holiday, I shouldn't complain.
At the crack of dawn tomorrow I will be at the grocery store, I couldn't do that Christmas shopping craziness. My grocery store is so quiet on Black Friday. After that we will go out and about. Not going away, can't afford it, just need the time away from work (DH) and stress(me). We have had more dr appt these past few wks, and my DH has 3 cardiac tests scheduled on Monday. Hopefully, the tests will turn out well.
Thank you for your good ideas and your good wishes. We will be together, so that alone makes it a good vacation. I will be checking in while on vacation. Thank you for looking out for me. Hope you all had a great holiday w/ your special ppl.
God bless. Alice.
