Yesterday was a wonderful, quiet and enjoyable day. Just spent it at home with the kids and DH. Watched movies, hung outside with the dogs and didn't do any work. Didn't do any exercise either as my back has been really hurting since the epidural. Then I rode JC Saturday and it got even worse.
Today, my back is pretty bad. The doc who did the epidural said that there was disc degeneration lower in my back and, if I came back for a second one, he would want to go lower. Not only is my back bad, I ate something that set off my Ulcerative Colitis. Not sure what it was.
I am going to take it pretty easy today and just do simple exercises like walking the dog. I don't want to push it too much with my back the way it is. I am waiting for a call back from the nurse. I am hoping to get the second epidural next week and maybe they can get this part of my back.
Why is it whenever you get in a rhythm with exercise, some part of your body fails you? UGH!
