it's been quite a week!

On sunday my hubby, myself, the girls and their families and Krystals in-laws all went to the Vaughan Mills Mall.  The guys were wanting to go to the Pro Bass Store and the girls we wanted to go and just walk around and check everything out.  Well, just as we were about to leave I was bent down in the front entrance and something happened to my back.  Just like that, wasn't doing anything that would have brought it on it just happened!  I figured it would go away as fast as it came on but WRONG!  So off we went.  I drove there and back, walked around for hours looking through stores and having fun with the family.  The guys doing the Pro Bass thing and shopping for their fishing needs.  We all met up for lunch and then walked around again for a bit.  The little girls got pics taken with the Easter Bunny which were so cute and then we decided it was time to leave. 

We all came back here for dinner which we ordered in (chinese) and then off to bed I went.  It was an awful night trying to get comfy and free of pain.  Nothing worked.  By morning I was worse than I had been.  My parents came over for a bit trying to convince me to let them take me to the hospital but I had called the orthopedic surgeon I am seeing for my back and was waiting to hear back from them to see what I should do.  Little did I know that the doc wouldn't see me again until I had another MRI done.  WHAT??? Are you serious?  So needless to say I haven't seen a doctor yet except for the doctor that does my back injections and thank goodness for him.  I had an app't to see him yesterday (thurs) and he was able to give me an epidural to hopefully relieve the pain.  The epidural was the worst but today I am feeling the slightest bit better.  The injecion site is tender and the back is still sore around the lower back/hip area but today I was able to get up and have a shower, wash and do my hair and do a little around the house.  Hubby is doing the laundry which is a huge help being the laundry room is way downstairs so looks like everything is under control for now.  I even managed to wash the hall and kitchen floors.  Also, through the week the girls came over and they helped me out with changing the sheets on the bed, and doing some laundry.  Poor Hannah and Ev didn't get much time with Nana but I just wasn't able to hold Ev for long and I couldn't get down on the floor with Hannah and play with her like I do other times.  She kept asking me to but in the end she helped Nana make lunch which she was quite happy to do. 

So now I'm up in bed resting and taking it easy.  Going to do a bit of knitting now and put some heat on my back and see how that makes it feel.

I hope that this situation is almost over with my back and that I'll be back to normal in no time.

Thank you for stopping by from SITS. I am getting better and having less pain. Knitting has certainly been a help this past week. Hope to see you visit my blog again!
