I finally made it back to the yard last night. As my back is injured it was a long and miserable ride. This morning I could barely walk at all. Getting dressed was an unbelievable experience of pain and comedy as I struggled to put on my socks without being able to actually bend over. If it hadn’t hurt so much it would have been hilarious.
I went to the ER this morning where I received an injection of pain killer and prescriptions for percocet, motrin, and valium as a muscle relaxer. I never knew valium was a muscle relaxer. She said since the flexeril hadn’t helped, valium was stronger and should help more.
I have an appointment for a follow up with the doctor my company uses tomorrow morning. They’re talking about possible physical therapy, an MRI to check for any disc damage, and it’s starting to sound like I may not be getting back to work nearly as soon as I want to. I really, really hate not being able to work, and so do my bill collectors. I am NOT the couch potato type and dearly hate this sort of thing.
I’m checked into a hotel at least until Monday. Maybe longer depending on what the doc says tomorrow. I’ll have plenty of knitting time the next few days. Maybe I can finally get this sock finished. I have the top about finished and am getting ready to start on the heel.
The percocet and valium have started to kick in. I have a feeling I’m going to be a very happy and mellow knitter over the next few days.
