Pain in the ....back

Last Friday I hurt my back while doing....laundry.  Yes, laundry.  A slight twist of the body to drop a shirt in a laundry basket and WHAM!!!!...I nearly went down.  Thankfully, my daughter Calista and my son Aaron were here and got me to a chair.  Then Aaron drove me to the chiropractor.  The next day, Tim drove me to the chiropractor.  Monday, Aaron drove me to the chiropractor and Wednesday, Aaron drove me to the chiropractor.  Tomorrow....well, you get the picture.  It's been a rough week.  I did manange to finish one of my applique borders.

Here's another block I finished but haven't shown yet.
Dr. Marshall says I should be feeling better soon and he's right.  I'm getting better every day.  To add to my dismay, we're having a going away party for Aaron tomorrow night (the Marines--remember?).  But I have good kids and all three of them pitched in today and cleaned the house. Andrea, the middle child was especially helpful (she made me say that).  The doctor says I should be totally back to normal in 2-4 weeks.  I'm hoping for sooner than that.

Oh no! I am so sorry that you hurt your back. I've done something similar bending down to pick up a I hope you heal fast.

My prayers are with you all.

Love the applique, so pretty!

Oh, I feel your pain. I have done that before too.
Your applique quilt is looking great.
Get better soon and hope the party goes well.
