I went up to my sister's cottage Wednesday and got back about 1:00 today. I had such a relaxing time! It's definitely something I needed. I did have a couple glitches, however.
I got up Thursday morning, did my exercises and went for my walk. I came back and sat down for a few minutes. I got up with a pain in my upper leg/lower back. I was limping. I layed down to thinking that it would go away. It didn't and by then it was inflamed. So, I got to visit another ER. The docs took xrays (I was afraid I had done something to my rods in my back). They came back, gave me a shot and two prescriptions, and told me it was muscle spasms. It was so small an area of my back that I think it pinced my sciatic nerve. Needless to say, I couldn't walk or do my exercises until today.
There was no internet connections there. I missed being able to monitor eating and exercising. I'm not sure I ate as well as I could have, but I did the best I could. No internet made me realize that I am very dependent on the internet.
So here I am starting to get back on track slowly but surely. My back still is tender at times, but I'm working through it.
