Work, Backs, Collisions, and stuff

My oh my oh my!
It is that season of ultra busy ness.
I have been working full time since August, so I rarely get on the computer at night. Work is going well, and I love it.
My back was doing pretty good, without a whole lot of extra bad stuff going on. I was feeling pretty good about it until....
Forget the drumroll. It was more like a thunderbolt.
We had a front end collision this past Saturday night in the rain. Hubby is bruised where he had his broken ribs, collapsed lung, and cardiac arrest. I got whiplashed nauseous, dizzy, banged up knee, etc.
The car could have been worse. I saw it tonight for the first time.
Drivers side front bumper area towards the front.
Praise God. We are alive. We survived. The other girl got banged up too. We live.
So I got back to work yesterday and struggled to work 3 hours due to my back and neck.
Last night I slept 10 hours after two nights of barely sleeping.
Today I worked 7 hours. Perhaps tomorrow I will finally make it back to my fulltime day. Meanwhile, I have to find a way to make up my time. I am being given a project involving research, and libraries, and sharing my ideas. Way cool.
I am stoked.
So, into each day a little rain must fall, and it certainly is a cold rain. It was so tough to put myself back in the car and drive to work on the highway in the rain. But I did it.
Time for me to relax.
Needless to say, I am dealing with a few back issues again. Mainly, getting it back off the pain wagon. It could be worse. No structural damage to me, a black and blue knee (where I had the arthroscopy), and pinched nerves, and neck/lumbar pain. I know how to deal with that. I will get over it.
I am practicing extreme thankfulness.
