I painted my half bath three times and realized I hated the color…remember? My goal was to paint it with one more coat…one. more. coat. Famous last words.
It was my VERY first brush of paint and WHAM! My back went out, I couldn’t breath, and I was down for the count. After three hours of shear agony, my husband took me to the hospital. The HOSPITAL!! I don’t go to the hospital, people. It’s just not my thing. Well, apparently my back had other plans.
So here’s me in the hospital. Sure, I might look happy, but I aged by like 30 years. You see why I don’t like hospitals?
The best I can do for you is a sneak peak. It’s not done, but it IS wanting to be done.
That’s all I have for now. That’s all I might have for a couple of days. Hopefully, I’ll be back sooner rather than later. For now, I’m off to lay on my heating pad while taking medicines that make me see little Smurfs running around the room!
Please note! I want to thank all of you who came by from SITS and had such wonderful and supportive things to say. At one point, I had over 1,000 e-mails, and I was as giddy as a school girl! I’ve already met some wonderful new friends, and I’m so thankful that SITS gives us the opportunity to do this! If you don’t know what SITS is…stop by and say hello!

Ouch!! I hope you are feeling better. And remember to relax!
Oh no! I hope you feel better soon…how discouraging!
Oh that sucks! I hope that you feel better soon!
Feel better soon! Back pain is no fun!
Bummer! But thankfully it sounds like you have good pharmaceutical support. Say hello to Smurfette for us!

Lipstick and Laundry ~Jen says
WoW… I too was down with my back this past weekend… Mine had to do with lifting a 25 pound baby and his carseat out of the car wrong… When I read this, I could totally relate… The whole couldn’t breath thing, I serious thought, if I just lay down here in the driveway… how long will it take my older boys to find me, but out of fear my neighbors would find me first and call 911… I drug myself into the house… UGH… I feel for ya girl!

~Shaye (Momma Miller)
Back pain is the worst! I dealt with mine for a year before they found out what was wrong.
Glad they gave you something for pain.
Half of the Style Sisters says
Oh I am so sorry to hear this. I totally know what it is like to throw your back out. It can happen at the weirdest moments too. Like loading the dishwasher…I hope your back heals quick!!
Sitting on a ice pak as I type this. Sorry I know first hand that pain. Time does hlp as well as drugs.
Love the spoon and fork. Thinking about going to the parents house pulling theirs downa and spray painting them blak and hanging them in my kitchen, Lookin good!
Our Lives says
I am sorry to hear your back went out! When it happened to me acouple of years ago, I felt the same way – aged! Glad to see the clarification of SITS, I thought it was something like “stay in touch sisters”.
