Weekly Gratitude...

Blue Ice. Sounds weird I know, but I am. On Friday, when I got out of bed I twisted my back wrong... but I kept going. After taking Rainee to school, I came home and put the heating pad then Blue Ice on my back... I wanted to take care of this right away... I didn't want it to get any worse or ruin the fun plans I had for the weekend. But neither of those helped... it only continued to get worse... and the only comfortable position for me by then was standing... not moving.... just standing. I thought I could push through it... because I have a high pain tolerance.... but when I started crying, Steve knew it was bad. I didn't know what to do... I couldn't sit... I couldn't move... it was awful!!! I called a friend who just got over doing pretty much the same thing to her back, as Steve went to pick Rainee up from school. My friend told me a few things to do... but to make sure I DID NOT to put heat on it... only use ice... well, I blew that one. She told me to just keep ice on it... basically until it goes away. Which is exactly what I did... all weekend!

All the fun things I had planned for Rainee and I... went by the wayside, because I was stuck in a chair. We didn't do any of the fun things I had planned... no pecan picking... no crafts... no scrapping... no baking... it was very disappointing! Rainee helped me whenever I needed to get up... she prayed for me get better... and what was suppose to be our fun weekend was spent watching lots and lots of movies. When Steve wasn't working, he helped out cooking and he took Rainee to the park several times, so she wasn't complete home bound. It was not the weekend I had planned... it was awful.

By Monday I was able to work at Rainee's school. On Tuesday and Wednesday I was much better, just a little stiffness... and today... as I got out of bed, I finally started feeling like myself again. So today, I am grateful for Blue Ice... and my friend's advice. I'm grateful for the rest... for all the love, care and prayers my family gave me... and I'm grateful to be feeling like myself again. I am grateful.
