Thank you all so much for your comments, emails, words of encouragement and healing juju, suggestions, etc., etc. This blogging community is such a god send!
I am gradually healing. The key word is gradually. By nature I am not a very patient person, so this is a bit difficult for me. I've been frustrated and angry by the constant pain and my inability to do some things or even get in a comfortable position. But...I will get through this (with the help of your encouragement and well wishes). Each day is a little better.
Finally, over the weekend, I was able to sit for a long enough period of time that I could knit a little or stitch a little. Progress! And, I'm back to reading. I'm still resting a lot, but not taking as many naps as the other week - LOL.
The weekend was quiet. We did have snow squalls one day - looked like a blizzard for 20 minutes or so and then it was over. We are supposed to gradually warm up a bit this week and Fletch is planning to grill again on Wednesday. That's about the excitement here. Today I will go for an X-ray of my lower back (just to be sure). I had planned to go last week, but fell asleep instead!
I'm still limiting my computer time, so will close out now. I hope everyone is doing well and again, so much thanks for reaching out to me.
