Ice On, Ice Off

March 1, 2016

Yesterday was an ice on, ice off, and ibuprofen day. I set the timer, and every 20 minutes, I was putting ice on or taking ice off of my back. I was reminded how I fell down the stairs a few months back, and all I got was a big bruise on my butt and a cracked cell phone. I pull down my pants to pee, and I throw out my back. What the heck.

Yesterday at about 5:00 pm, I got brave (and antsy) and went to Walmart for Banana’s and Eggs. I walked very slowly and used the cart as a walker. About every 10 steps, I winced. This morning, it feels better. I mean I did roll over to my stomach, then put my feet on the floor, then push up, in order to get out of bed, but it was easier than it was yesterday morning. Back pain is very sexy you guys.

I’m leaving in about an hour to do prep for the Food Truck today. The weather is nice and we are back at work this week! Whoo! Whoo! (( hope it all goes okay.)

    Awww, Nancy. You give me more credit than I deserve. I didn’t do ANY lifting, just took orders and had fun seeing all of our regular customers. It felt so good to be back!

  2. Hope you survived your work today.
    I think it is brave of you because your work is hard work.

    Much much better! Thank you! The ice and ibuprofen seemed to have do the trick!

  4. oh no! Feel better. I did that about a month ago. Put a Thermacare heat patch on and it did the trick.
