I made it through about 3 hours then asked my boss if I could burn some vacation time. Here is where I get to say I have the most wonderful boss in the world. Not only did he ok me going home, but he let me go without using up vacation. I'm salaried so I won't lose any money. He is so understanding and wonderful, and he knows that when I am not hurting so much I will stay late if I have to in order to get my job done. So I came home, took a dilaudid, and slept for a little while. Feeling a bit better now, but still pretty sore. Gonna just take it easy the rest of the day.
Thanks to everyone for being here, it really helps to know I am not alone.
