It’s ok…I have a doctors note

November sweater won’t be done.
.
Not in November at least.
.
When last we spoke, Saturday night, blocks were drying.  Hopes were high.

When hopes were high

.
It all changed on Sunday morning.  I couldn’t sit up or stand without sharp stabbing pain in my back.
.
Fate gave me a big kick in the pants and told me I had better slow down.  If I’m being honest, i would say that fate had been talking to me for a few weeks with soft little twinges that I of course ignored.  Well, there is no ignoring this.
.
2 middle of the night trips to the ER
pain meds
physical therapy appointments
numb fingers on my left hand
the only way I can stand or sit comfortably is with my left hand resting on my head.  Yep. That doesn’t help the numb fingers too much.
.
A pinched nerve is not how I was planning to end November.  At least that is all I hope it is.  MRI tonight at 8.  We’ll see what fate has in store for December.  You can bet I’ll be paying very close attention to any minor twinges this time around.

Thanks to my DKA girls for holding down the fort this week. As soon as i can stand upright, I’ll make it up to you!
