Oh My Aching Back!

Well today didn't turn out the way I had planned. My plans were to take the car to get it washed then head over to Wal-Mart and then come home and do some housework. Well most of my plans didn't happen because my back went out on me this morning. It was really odd. I got up just before 6 am to let Hiker outside. When she was done, we went back to bed. I played with her awhile while in bed and then around 7 am, decided to get up and get going. When I sat up on the edge of the bed, the muscles in the lower left of my back felt extremely tight. I tried to stand up and stretch the muscles but they just got worse. I was able to get dressed, but when I tried to put my shoes on, which I did after about 10 minutes, but had a heck of time trying to bend down and tie them. Got some breakfast and decided the car could wait to be washed and the housework I was planning on doing could also wait, but I needed to go over to Wal-Mart to get some Fresh Pet Dog Food for Hiker. I had to buy the small size of Hiker's food as Wal-Mart did not have the big size I usually buy. Don't know what is going on lately with Wal-Mart and Sam's not having the dog food I normally buy. Maybe when Jean and I are out and about on Friday, we can go by Pet Smart and I can get some Fresh Pet for Hiker there. I was in pain walking around the store, but got in and out pretty fast. Bought a couple of those Solanpas Patches for my back. When I got home, I called Kaiser. I had received a voice mail from them last night when I was in the shower. It was from the Radiology department in Panorama City. They were calling to make a mammogram appointment for me but my doctor has me doing mammograms every 2 years, not every year, and I just had one last year, so they said they will call me back next year. I spent the entire day trying to get comfortable on the sofa. Tried sitting up, tried laying down. The hard part was when and if I needed to get up like to go to the bathroom.


  1. A sore back is no fun. I have had my share of those. At the risk of sounding like my Mom.may I suggest,putting ice on it. Works for me,usually.

  2. My upper back is in bad shape because of my neck and spine. So I understand the pain you were in with your lower back hurt. I have the same problem finding cat food that you have with dog food.


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
