I got an injection that helped ease my back pain some....and the doc wanted me to do PT to help get my back stronger and we will fuse the L4 to the L5 or whatever....my back was feeling good till I started with the stretching....

Anyway I try to do what they say......after 3 times and doing it 2 times a day at home.....I felt like I was in labor......still do........

Then remember the friend from the campground with the pontoon boat that Del went out fishing with and then they had fish fries for the camp? Well he passed away from cancer....and his funeral was yesterday.....We couldn't go, not because of PT or anything....once again my counter drawer caught me and when I tried to back out of it I fell and caught my arm by the sink, knocking Del's coffee pot off and shattering it......I have a bruise from my armpit to my elbo then a big scrabe around my wrist......I am on 81mg of asprin and Placix....so I went up to the doctor and never did see anyone because I think they just don't like to interupt the flow....so they were going to work me in but after I sat there over an hour with on one else in this doctor's waiting room and all of her doors open I told them that I would see them later.....a nurse came out and wanted to see and she said there wasn't much but ice they could do but if it got really sore or the bruise really spread to get to the hospital, guess they can handle walk-ins easier......the guy from PT heard me and had me come in and we did a back relax electric thing I always liked them from years ago.....that did help calm my tension....a bit.......but this morning.....OH MY,,,,,,,I can't hardly breathe and today is one of those days that I am going to be sneezing .......that is fun normally (NOT) but today it is like coughing after surgery you just don't want to do it......cause it hurts.....

Just heard that our friends brother whose camper was between ours and our friends is going up to get both campers today.... It just makes me cry.....for a couple reasons.....he was such a nice guy......and when we met him in 2005 he was a little stout guy looked like he was in good shape...for a guy near 70....but he wouldn't take an asprin if it was a sure thing to get rid of a headache.......he didn't believe in all that medical crap........and you know a lot of that screening Medicare will pay for when you are that old.....and had he been getting just a yearly checkup they would have found his cancer way back then and he would still be here with us.........such a shame..he was going through all the stuff that you have to go through and at the end he couldn't keep anything down......sad.......

I can't sit here to long or I will fuse here.......lol......got to get up and move every few minutes.......

Going to be over 70 today I might go bask in the sun......is that what a seal dows is bask?...........lol
