I got the MRI results for my back. I have a moderate tear in a disk at midback (I can't remember the numbers) and arthritic calcification at the top of the tailbone area that is moderate to severe and beginning to impinge on the spinal cord. So the doctor is sending me to a specialist for further evaluation. Because I didn't have nearly enough going on already in my life.
What I am really hoping for is that they will say, yes this is something we need to monitor, but it's okay for you to go back to swimming and biking. I am still having trouble sitting up in any kind of straight-backed chair for much more than 15 minutes before I start getting uncomfortable.
But I did get to spend time with my godkids yesterday, reading bedtime stories to the younger two and playing games with the oldest. We adapted by lying across the bed in the guest room. You make of life what you can.
