Taking it easy for a weekend

By Doctors orders.
Not Doctor A~, although she is doing her best to keep me still, but by my actual Doctor. I've mentioned recently that my back has been giving me a lot of trouble, well, the trouble has been getting worse and the simple fixes haven't been helping. I've been taking it easy, not been working around the house like I'd like to, and was prescribed a course of oral medication to reduce inflammation which I diligently took. Still, last week I found myself almost unable to get up and walk around. For over a week now I've been subsisting on pain medicine and little sleep.
This morning I had an appointment to get an epidural injection of cortisone to - hopefully - improve my situation. With any luck, the inflammation will reduce and I can start doing some mild exercise and stretching and allow myself to heal. In the mean time, I've been ordered to take it easy, not to work too hard at anything for the weekend and let my back rest.
I'm going to take that as an opportunity try and catch up with some of the blog stuff that I've been wanting to post and just haven't had a chance to put up.
I may post up through the weekend, but mainly I'm going to write and format. Look forward to a nice sized posting blitz in the next week.
Have a great weekend all.

Oooh, back pain is not nice. I've been having some problems with my shoulder recently and the 20 minute sessions of massage therapy I've been sent for twice a week makes me end up feeling like I've done a massive workout but so far hasn't made the pain go away. Hope you get better soon.

Aw crap man, that would drive me insane!
I am one of natures fidgeters and can't abide being sat still for too long when my garden needs attention!

Hope you are feeling better soon.
