Write In Haste, Repent at Leisure Hope for More Leisure

I haven't posted at all for a few days, and only once during the Labor Day weekend, which was probably a terrible use of my labor-less time, but I plead stress on all counts, your honors.

I've been fighting back spasms and general pain for the last five days, and for some reason it has refused to go away. I've gone back to my exercises (did I mention this in my last post?) and have taken many, many trips to our tiny bathtub jacuzzi, but the usual cycle of the pain going away doesn't seem to be repeating properly. We'll see if the weekend helps.

We'll be flying out to Seattle with Tommy and Lily, Andy's and Em's cats, on Friday night, and will stay there until Tuesday. I'll have five days to completely rest, so I'm hoping that will help lay the back pain to rest, if I haven't gotten it properly under control by then.

This isn't much of a post, I know, but I wanted to keep an oar in. I'll try to respond to other people's posts (I hope) tonight.

Thanks - things are slowly getting better. I was able to sleep with only one painkilling drug last night, and I'm sitting at the computer with a little less pain. It seems that sitting is the thing that hurts the most, so I'm really hoping that I can clear this up. My work requires me to sit for long stretches of time, and I'm going to be in an airplane seat for more than four hours at the end of the week.

Thanks - things are even better today than they were yesterday, so I'm more hopeful about the plane flight.

I'm really sorry. And sorry that I can't really offer much beyond that "I'm sorry." Except maybe to say that, while I hope it goes away on its own, if this persists... I know that, as a journalist, you don't have much in the way of time off, and I get a sense that your health insurance isn't that great, but doctors exist for a reason.

I'm just saying.

Anyway, best of luck with, well, everything.

Don't feel sorry at your lack of super-heroic healing capabilities. Heh. The back is slowly getting better. You're right about the health insurance. It used to be fantastic, but has gradually eroded, precipitously so since we were picked up by the Trib. Meanwhile, I'm back to doing my back exercises every morning. And thanks for the good wishes!

Alas, you'll be in Seattle when I'm nowhere near there!

(which is to say, hi! I know it's been a while! Sorry to hear about your back issues, and hope you enjoy your time with family in the beautiful PNW.)

Hi there! I'm looking forward to spending time in your former neck of the woods, although actually getting there with the kitties is a little more nerve-wracking.
