...and then that happened

So John took me to the doctor this morning. Why, you ask? Well, it went like this...

Yesterday we decided that the three of us would go out to dinner. We were all puttering around, getting ready to go. I had pulled on some jeans and a shirt and went looking for some shoes to wear. Oh, there they are, on the rack on the floor in the closet. So I did what any normal person would do...I leaned over to pick them up.

There was no pop, no grinding, nothing...it was just as if someone had flipped on a massive pain switch. I sort of walked my hands up the doorway so that I was doing my best impersonation of someone standing upright. I hobbled slowly out to the living room and let John know that I didn't think I would be joining him and the child for dinner. I took some Aleve and John got me tucked into bed with some pillows under my knees. No, I didn't sleep very well.

This morning, since we had to go on base anyway, we stopped at the medical clinic so that I could see a doctor. I am quite pleased to announce that I have some robaxin, naproxin, and lortab. John took me to lunch so that I could take my pills, then it was nap time!

Let us just be happy that this happened NOW and not the first week of work. I have no idea why it happened and really, whatever flipped that switch needs to just stop it.

I'm going to go take another dose of meds now, so sleep well everyone!
