Default Feeling better...

Thanks for all your lower back pain suggestions everybody. I have to say, I liked PapaBill's sugestion about alternating Pina Coladas and Daquiris the best!!
I have tried Robaxacet, with not much improvement, but heat and ice, and a few physio exercises should help. I'm trying not to bend at work, but that's next to impossible when all the people I work with are under 3 feet tall!! (daycare)
Meanwhile, I really should do some preliminary packing tonight. My goodness! Will you look at that countdown clock!

Donna I hope you recover quickly. Maybe rest is the best thing for you.

Donna, hope you feel better before you leave. Don't overdo it with lifting suitcases. I threw a rib out of alignment that way once.

Hopefully those happy thoughts about cruising will send those endorphins (or whatever) right to the spot and you'll be pain free for your sail away.

Glad you're feeling a bit better.

Try not to bend over while packing. Put the suitcase on the bed, sit next to it and pack that way. You won't exacerbate your lower back pain that way. I know. I've got the same problem. Happy sailing on the Legend.
