Chloe's Words

As she's cleaning the table - "Mom, I didn't make a big mess today - aren't you impressive of me??" And I smile and answer - "I sure am!!!"

Now, a video to make you smile - we think she's destined for greatness on air hockey!

So here's my excitement for the day: I wake up during the night last night and can't feel one leg. Then I realize it's incredible back pain - I liken it to Back Labor - NOT KIDDING HERE!! I can barely get out of bed - going for the Ibuprofen - and then, when I am up - I can barely walk. So I did get the meds and basically crawled back to bed. Morning was the same story all over again - can hardly walk, but yet there is no comfort in standing or sitting either. I told Joe that I haven't been in this much pain for a LONG time. I gave in and went to the doctor - they did x-rays - no major problems they can see - just severe muscle strain. So they ask what I did yesterday - I have to admit nothing out of the ordinary - then they give me the line "Well, at OUR age, these sorts of things start to happen." Oh lovely - now I'm in "that age" bracket! So I go home with my muscle relaxers and my Ibuprofen limits and I am praying for my back to feel great tomorrow - not what the dr. promised but I can always hope! He said to hope for 6 MONTHS for the back to heal. I don't have that kind of time, now do I!?!?! :) Ok, that's all - just had to share my woes - guess I'll go put my feet up, or down, or sideways, or backwards since I know NONE of those will help at all!!!!! UGH!

Hey Becky!
I don't think that my body owes a joint that doesn't hurt! Thumbs, wrists, elbows, shoulder, hip, knees, ankle and a couple toes! Not joking!

Age is mind over matter, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter!!

Hope you're feeling better soon!:)

Welcome to the age of aches and pains! It's just the pits when our head believes that we're much younger than our bodies allow. I'm praying for your comfort and quick recovery.

Oh no! So sorry to hear this! I know at 40 things just aren't looking the same, KWIM? My skin, for one, needs some major work. Having young kids at our age keeps us young, though!

girl get to a chiropractor! They work wonders with no meds and not 6months from now.

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
