Ouch!

Well, I hope everyone's weekend was better than mine. I spent six gruelling hours in the emergency on Saturday. The Dr tells me that I have torn a muscle in my back-right side. I really cannot associate this kind of pain as muscular. I would swear it is either in or on my kidney, but what can you do? The Dr was once a sports injury doctor for a pro ball team, so I guess I have to assume he knows what he is talking about.

You'll have to excuse this posting for misspelling and general rambling as I have been altered by vicodin and valium since I left the hospital. Without the meds, I cannot walk or move without assistance. Don, my BBF, has been staying here taking good care of me. He is such a jewel!

Since I am now fortified by the drugs, and can sit up a while, I'm off to catch up on your blogs. Looks like that will be my only entertainment until this thing heals. I am a tough old broad, so I'm hoping for speedy recovery.

Don't have a clue how it happened. I did some yard work on Friday but it didnt hurt at the time. But I have Osteo and one time five ribs broke for no reason. So who knows. I just hope it heals soon. Thanks, you guys for stopping by, I appreciate your comments. Just hoping it heals soon...but I am a tough old broad so I'm sure I'll be fine soon.

That does not sound one ounce of fun. Be well and stop moving around so much!
