Grandma and her boys

I can not believe ... what I have done


Grandma to the rescue was last week ... this week it has been my turn ... although Grandma is managing her own problem or should I say still is !!

Ben with his broken foot stayed with me and on the final day he was here I lifted him into the car and PING goes a muscle in my back / shoulder and by Monday I am in acute pain, after blood tests ( previous Breast Cancer so they always check when I have anything wrong) X-rays and copious amounts of pulling about by Dr's and nurses and physios they have decided I have a trapped nerve in my shoulder area  ... I can honestly say this is  the first time ever that pain has reduced me to tears more than once in the week. ... so I am absent from blogging because I can not use my right hand with the mouse ( ouch !!) and using the internal mouse takes hours to write just a few words.

So I will be only reading every one's blogs for a bit longer.
Having Physio each day  and doing the exercises as ordered to do ....so hopefully the release of the nerve  will happen soon ... as my pain tolerance is getting low ... and am popping pills like they are going out of fashion.

Oh Laurie, that's not good and sorry to hear it is so very painful... it's frustrating as it is not being able to do things - without the pain!! I do hope you feel better soon... and can find lots of nice things to read about!!
Take care...

Oh Laurie... you poor thing... you take care now! Sometimes the simple things cause us the most pain. But catching up on reading is always a nice thing to fill in your day.
I wish you are speedy recovery!
Cheers....
