A Lovely Weekend

My sister and little Amelia came for a few days and we had the most beautiful weather. Temperature in the 70's and 80's and sunny! Even getting a little sunburn, but now back to some dreary clouds and cold rain. It was a nice visit with the sis, did some shopping, running, hanging out, went to the park, watched some bball. She took some pictures and I am sure will post on her blog sometime.

On a not so great note, I am in some serious back pain. Probably about 2 weeks now, and we are talking excruciating pain. It hurts to do just about anything but be still. My sister was kind enough to work on me a little and suggested to go see a chiropractor and I did. My two lowest vertebrae are coming together and pinching (more like squashing) the nerve they share, even causing some nerves not to fire in my right leg. So yeah, expensive month this one will be...he thinks roughly 16 visits will do the trick to get me back to feeling good as long as I do some exercises for the back and strength stuff once I can get some movement of my lower spine back. The xrays were rather interesting to look at and actually see that my lowest vertebrae has already grown a bone spur because of the degeneration of the disk above it. Oh well, what can you do...

Here is hoping for some pain relief soon!
