I just sent a note to my boss telling her I’m not coming to work tomorrow or Friday. That’s tough for me. I enjoy going to work.
I cancelled a speaking engagement for Saturday. I was the keynote. Ouch! I can’t ever remember cancelling a speech.
If there’s sleep to catch up on, I’ve caught up! I did at least ten hours last night and another two naps during the day today. Maybe the drugs… maybe the boredom. Does it matter?
Sometime mid-afternoon Helaine said “enough” with political talk and news. Sorry Congressman Akin, you’re on our own.
I’m back on steroids. That started late this morning.
If yesterday’s pain was a 10, tonight I’m down to an 8.
I am smarter than I was last week. Anything that might irritate my disks (as it turns out my problem is) is being avoided. I haven’t sat all day. Driving is out of the question.
We have a whirlpool bath which hasn’t seen water in 15 years. I’d use it, but I’d have to sit.
Doppler has been especially nice. When I got into bed Monday and last night she came and cuddled up against me. Usually she’s on Helaine’s side. Dogs know.
This is all very frustrating. I’m used to being in-charge of my life and tonight I surely am not.
