Today in St Louis - April 30, 2007

It's been a long weekend.  Friday evening, my lower back began to hurt. By late in the evening, I could hardly move.  Saturday, I was bed-ridden for most of the day.  When I was able to pull myself out of bed, walking was horrible, and I had to crawl up and down the steps.  I alternated from submerging myelf in the bathtub to ice packs on my back.  Yesterday was somewhat better; I could at least walk slowly.  Any jolt was unbearable, though.  I did ride along down to Bayer's Greenhouses with Kim, Gary and Dennis.  I just couldn't stay inside any longer.  The weather was too nice, and you can lie in bed for only so long.  It was the annual plant shopping trip, and I wasn't going to miss it.  I didn't enjoy it, though.  I went to the doctor this morning.  He thinks it's just a pulled muscle and gave me a shot and also has me on muscle relaxers.  I'm trying to get some work done, but it's pretty difficult.  Sitting is painful, and I can't get the pain to stop in any position. 

Both my sisters complain of frequent back problems.  I've always been pretty lucky.  I'd pull something every once in a while, but nothing major.  I was used to lifting heavy things - furniture, appliances, etc, but it hurts to lift something so light as a book.  I remember about twenty years ago, I really strained my back, but it only lasted a few days and I was back to normal.  That was 20 years ago.  I don't think I'll bounce back as quickly this time.  As soon as I am able, I will start stretching again....and keep it up this time.

I guess I'll just watch the grass and weeds grow until I can get back to yard work....
