Summer is Here!

Well not weather wise but graduation was today & I am now on Summer Vacation! And I would just love to do a Happy Dance but my back decided to go out a few days ago. So far it is not too bad...well just on the line. I'm not in excruciating pain all the time. I called the place I had my Vax-D treatments 2 years ago last Thurs and they are getting me in on Monday to see what is going on. Today I went to Acupuncture, helped my hip but then when I went to get off the table my back just spasmed and was pulling me down. I am able to walk slowly & I took my niece to our local semi professional baseball team's home opener tonight. They had fireworks! They lost though! I sat and enjoyed myself and got home ok etc. I just can't twist & turn and it is just really on the edge. I've been sitting too much this last week grading and probably sleeping a few nights on my couch and my folks didn't help. My bro just told me his went out sleeping on their couch! Ugh! So if it wasn't for my back I'd be dancing like crazy...that is after I get some sleep. 3 hours last night, 45 min nap before the game & I'm still up and soooo ready to crash right now. I really hope I don't have to do a month of Vax-D again.

Oh & I found out last month I do have a tear in my rotator cuff, though the radiologist & the doctor disagree on how bad. Doc says doesn't seem to bad & gave me a cortisone shot. Next day UGH!!! but then better but weak. Now it is better overall but tiny spot pain with certain activities. I can move it more freely, which I never realized before the shot I really wasn't. It was getting hard to even type before.

I am teaching a few classes over the summer but with the economy and medical bills I really need to. I'll still have Fri off and there is some overlap in sessions but a few weeks just MW evening & then later it will just be T&TH so then 4 day weekends. It won't be too bad I don't think.

Summer just goes by too fast though!!! This year it probably will especially since my older of my nieces will be heading to College...OMG!!!! I am so not ready for that!

Our weather has been horid! You'd think we were Seatle or something with all the rain we have gotten lately.

Well I can't keep my eyes open anymore, but expect some postings now that I am off! :-)

Sorry to hear about your back. Spasms can be extremely painful. I went through that about ten years ago. Needed physio, painkillers and a new mattress. Almost as good as new, now. Hope to see you posting more this summer. (((HUGS)))
