Back at it.
Well, I spent about 6 hours in the emergency room yesterday. It was loads of fun. I bent over to pick up a sock and my back went out on me. I managed to get to the floor without falling and onto my back. Then I was just there. Somehow I managed after twenty minutes to get myself from the laundry room to the kitchen, a distance of less than 15 feet. I had to use a broom to knock the phone off the hook to call Jeff. Yep, no one was home. Jody, my brother-in-law was out in the shop so Jeff called him to come help me. Of course I only had on a shirt and my underwear. Oh and one sock. He helped my get some shorts on and got my other sock. Anyway, we finally got to the emergency room, because I could not get up on my own, Jeff cut a piece of plywood to get me to the truck. There they took x-rays and 6 shots of steroids and pain killers. I still really hurt when we left and right now my leg is numb, but Lortab and muscle relaxers are helping today. I guess no more basketball this season :-(
