Default rollerdonna's back problem

Hi everyone. Donna's Hubby here letting you know that she is down with a dreadfully painful back condition. It happened yesterday evening in the kitchen whilst she was putting away some dishes.As she was moving a chair she was about to stand on. her back suddenly froze. I was in work at the time but her son helped her to bed. She was in tears with the pain and could not move when I arrived home at midnight. She took two Tylonol with Codeine and that seemed to knock her out so to speak. This morning she was still in pain and has remained the same all today.
Not much anyone can do with this situation-poor girl. Just rest and move s-l-o-w-l-y.So that's to tell you all why Donna hasn't been on the boards the last couple of days and may be off them another day or two.
She sends her regards to you all.
James.

Oh dear.
Has she been to the DOC?
I hope its just a pinched nerve or something minor?

Move the pc into her room?

Sending good thoughts for a swift recovery!

James, you'll just have to be here "cruisemates secretary" until she's better - she can talk and you type!

Seriously, I hope she's better and back on the boards soon - we miss her already!

OUCH!!!!! I don't think there is much that is more painful than having your back go out. I hope the doctor can give her a muscle relaxer as well as her pain meds to help this go away fast. Tell her that I'm praying for a quick recovery.

Thanks James for letting us know what has happened.

((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

UGH ! God Bless you Donna.
This happened to me only once thirty years ago and I remember the pain as if it were yesterday... Take care and it does pass.

Goodness, RD, a good thing you weren't already on that chair

I hope you feel better soon. I used to have a doctor that said, "I hate backs!"

Sorry to hear of your back problem - I too have had this happen and know first hand how miserable it is. Will pray that you soon find relief and are soon up and around. Keep your thoughts on balmy beaches, sunsets and exotic ports - it will help pass the time.
