Why I Walk So Funny

Bassman, bless his soul, told me to stand up straight the other day. Oh, I am trying but it ain't working so good.

And now I know why. 5 bulging discs, a pinched nerve on the right, and some bone spurs thrown in just for grins. I discovered this after my very first MRI (those things are fascinating! Loud too).

The good news is there is no need for surgery at this time (HOORAY!) and that if I am careful, and do the chiropractor thing conscientiously, I should be good for many years to come. Even horseback riding won't be off limits (not this week though).

So Wednesday I will go and discuss why this crippling crap that kept me off work for two weeks happened and how I can make sure it won't happen again.

Because, while it may sound like fun, lying on the couch for two weeks staring at the television (no cable, remember?) really isn't.

No cable! More book reading time then. At least you know what is up now.. Hope you get back soon!

Back to work Monday (thank heavens since I am bored). Lots of books, computer stuff, and video games but even they lose their thrill after awhile!
