Mommy gets a time out

Sunday morning we were getting ready to go to a big Flea Market our city has each weekend. I knew when I was bending over to get Bree that I was doing it wrong, but I didn't listen. I lifted and SNAP huge pain in my lower back. I dropped her back into the bouncer (she was only about an inch up and didn't seem to notice anyway) and hobbled to the lazy boy. I could hardly walk the rest of the day.

Yesterday I went to the chiropractor. He said he won't rule out a slipped disk. It has happened to me before. So, I have to take it easy for a few days.

Mostly, I sit in the lazy boy. I have some pain meds left over from the c-section. So, those make things much much better (I take them sparingly, but am assured they are OK while breast feeding). Brett brings me babies, diapers, bottles, food, clothes to fold... whatever. Everything is done from sitting (originally from laying). Each day it gets a little better. Thank God he was able to stay at home a couple of days... as we would have been totally lost without him. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful husband!

Oh NO. Backpain is awful. I hope you have a speedy recovery (and hey, try to enjoy your little time out)!

Ouch! I'm so sorry that happened. Unless it's all just a ploy to be waited on (JK). Hope you feel better quickly.

Oh, man. I'm late to the back news, but I hope by now you're feeling better.

Good enough to scrub avocado off the ceiling, hopefully.
