Well apparently my husband and I are getting old. (Aside from the whole obvious everybody-gets-old thing, that is.) We’re breaking down! So Paul hurt his back shortly after John was born, and it’s still giving him problems. He reinjured it again one morning by coughing, and then again a few days ago by walking through some grass. And me? I strained mine while we were moving, but then it was doing a lot better until about a week ago. I had thw baby in my arms, and I tripped and fell. The baby was just fine- I, on the other hand, didn’t have any hands to brace myself with. So I landed flat on my tailbone. Oh man, does my back hurt. The fall jarred it all the way up my spine, and now I walk like I’m an old lady! I can’t move my left leg without pain.
The good news is that we’re still young enough to where we can both heal. Hopefully sooner rather than later, because we are quite the sight to see. We’ve both been doing stretches and exercises to hopefully rebuild the muscles. I know there are tons of people out there living with back pain, and I really feel for them because it’s rough!
