Last night I got off my couch, holding my 6 month old daughter, and screamed in pain. After handing our baby to my wife, I fell to the floor, half laughing at the absurdity of it all, half crying at the terrible pain that was shooting through my back. I stayed on the floor for 14 hours, unable to make any motion that placed even the slightest tug of strain on my lower back – did you know that laughing uses the back muscle and is extremely painful in a state such as mine? Consuming a steady diet of ibuprofen, I can now walk, stand and sit, albeit with moderate pain and significant awkwardness.
Stuck at home rather than going along with the hectic plans of this weekend, I couldn’t help but blog.
(Yes, once again, I break a self-imposed blogging silence.)

Oh, my, bad news. I hope it is something that will “go back in” by itself. I’m not personally convinced of the value of chiropractic, but I have friends who swear by it. And there is the possibility of a DO, doctor of Osteopathy, which is a cross between MD and DC. Best wishes!
Having experienced the wonder of Chiropractics, I am a huge supporter. It ended years of back and neck spasms and it ended what was mis-diagnosed as TMJ (jaw popping).
I haven’t been in over a year, after having gone for years, and things are still good.
If you need someone good in your area, let me know.
Ouch!! Knowing what it’s like hauling two wriggling ones around I can only imagine the complications… You’ll be in our prayers.
Oh no! I also have to vote for chiropractic (but only if you’ve got a good practitioner – there are a lot of quacks out there!). Hope you’re feeling much, much better.
