My crazy weekend...
So I'm a bit in la-la land at the moment. Lots of pain and lots of drugs for that pain. Friday night I was reading to Emma on the couch, somehow she managed to flop/jump onto my left side. It took my breath away and I was sore after that. Well the pain got worse. Intense pain in my side and back - I couldn't move well or do much besides lay on the couch. By Sunday I was dizzy and nauseous as well, so my doctor told me to go to the ER. So we braved the snow and I got to spend the afternoon at the hospital getting tests run, getting a CAT Scan, and getting dosed with morphine. Apparently to find out that I have some sort of internal trauma (duh). As far as they could tell (the metal rod in my back obscured the CAT scan a bit), there is no internal bleeding. So at this point it's a waiting game. I'll either start feeling better soon or will develop serious symptoms. Fun times. So I'm back on the couch full of painkillers. Never really thought having a toddler would be like a contact sport, but crazy things do happen. Just thought I'd take the opportunity to complain to the world.

    Poor you! That's awful! Hope you get well soon. Take care of yourself and repeat to your daughter this mantra,"Mummy is not a bouncy castle, Mummy is not a bouncy castle..."

    Hope you feel better soon.

    If Emma grows up to play a contact sport like football, you should tell her coach and team mates this story. :D

    The innocence of children - can be the painful reminder of one's pain.

    I do hope you are much improved.
