Getting better

Maria’s back problem flared again last week, most likely triggered by her decision to lug a heavy antique sewing machine from her car to a repair shop counter.

That was around Wednesday. By Friday noon, she was in such pain that she had to come home from work and get horizontal.

She soldiered through the weekend on muscle relaxers and bed rest and I took her to the clinic Monday morning where she was seen by a nurse practitioner who prescribed steroids.

The prescription worked quickly and she got a good night’s sleep and feels significantly better. I dusted off our garage treadmill and she’s on it as I write.

Chronic back pain is a horrible thing and I thank God it’s not among my ailments.
