Y is for YEEEOWCH!

I was struggling a little with what to write for Y today, so I decided to work on the basement. Organizing and cleaning helps clear my mind. I bent down to pick up a box of Legos and YEEEOWCH!

I have seriously messed up the lower left side of my back. I pulled a ligament or strained a muscle or something else just as silly.

The Aleve has not kicked in yet, which is disappointing. I have a prescription inflammatory for my arm (I have biceps tendonitis) and may need to take that. My whole Saturday is now shot, as it hurts to sit, walk, bend, or lift anything. So I guess “Y” could also be for “Y, Oh Y, did I hurt my back today!”

Poor husband–he’s trying to put in a front walkway and now he’ll have to tend to all four kids and an injured wife! Today is also my oldest son’s first flag football game of the season. Hopefully, the pain will have dulled by that time so I can cheer him on properly.

Sorry for the less-than-interesting entry today! Now I’ll have to make sure “Z” on Monday is twice as good!

  2. Back pain is the worst, isn’t it? Take the NSAIDs and rest it at least the rest of the day.

  4. sorry that you had to come by “Y” painfully. But, have to admit, I hurt my back yesterday and can relate to what you are feeling. Good news, today is much better. Take care and have fun with “z”!

  5. Thank you for all the well-wishes! The Aleve was helping, but then I think I re-strained it cheering at my son’s football game. He was just doing so well! Oh, what we do for our children 🙂

    I think rest is on the agenda for the rest of the weekend!

  6. Bummer. At first I thought you were going to say you stepped on those dratted Legos.

  7. Love this! Not that you got hurt, but the creative way you worked your Y into your injury. You poor thing! Take the meds, get some rest, and let the hubs take care of you for a few days. I LOVE finding other Catholics in the blogging worlda and will follow you to stay in touch. God bless you!

  8. Oh no that’s not good, I do hope you feel better soon and the pain is gone. Make sure you take you meds 🙂 Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, and sorry for the late reply, I have just been away with no internet access to reply.
