I had a great four back pain free days. I woke up in the middle of the night last night in terrible pain again. I'm really getting tired of this. I had grand plans for my body today. Instead, I prayed for the ibuprofin to kick in quickly.
I had a great weekend. Our county's training weekend was happening. Wonderful training, wonderful people. I took a great class on advanced airway management. I got to use a fiber optic glidescope to intubate a neonate (mannequin of course). I learned some new techniques and reviewed skills that I am going to need to recertify next month. I also took courses in EKG interpretation (another great review) and current trends in EMS that covered new stroke guidelines, current drug trends (meth, bath salts, etc) and chemical suicides.
Jane had a terrible night last night. Probably the worst night since she was a newborn. I think this weekend over stimulated her. She was so good all weekend. She was handled by a lot of people and didn't bat an eyelash.
My mom and I are going to the bank today. With the passing of my grandmother, my mom wants to open a bank account with both of our names on it so that if something happens to her or Dad, I will have money to cover expenses. Its a hard thing to think about, but I know it is inevitable. I can't imagine losing my mom. I can't imagine what she's going through right now after losing hers. I know how sad I am that I can't go across the street anymore and play cards with my granny. I couldn't imagine not being able to go across the street and tell my mom that I love her or hug her everyday.
I'm hoping my back pain will ease up enough to get a little exercise in this evening. I'm hoping for a light jog, but will be happy with a walk.
I hope everyone is having a great Monday!
