I am DOWN!

Yes, I am DOWN!!! I have thrown my back out!!!! I really wasn't doing anything, I was at mom's and I went to get up off of the couch, the pain hit and my knees buckled! I thought I would die! I had hurt my back several years ago in a car accident and every once in a while it will go out on me! I finally made it back home and have just been miserable. At least right now I am getting lots of attention from hubby! He has been taking care of me. I sneezed earlier and I thought I would die from pain! I really don't want to do that again. When I do this it usually only lasts a day or two. I actually tried to sew when I got back home, I couldn't really sit down so I tried to sew standing up. Luckily I am short so my machine was the perfect height! Hubby even moved my ironing board for me so I wouldn't have to move around too much. I only managed to get one block sewn while standing. It was a little slow trying to do it that way so I just quit. But here is what I got done today!






I really wanted to hit the halfway mark tonight on this Love Letter quilt but it just didn't happen. I now have 58 blocks and I need 121! Maybe tomorrow I can do it!!!!!

Andrew's friend is still here and I guess will be staying the whole weekend. Not a big deal, they are both good kids. Actually right now he and Andrew are out Coon hunting with another friend of theirs. His Grandfather is with them and they didn't take guns this time. Actually, they are at a Coon Lot, which is where they train the dogs. They probably won't be back home until 2am or 3am. I know all of the people that they are with and this place in only about 2 miles away.

Richard and the boys worked a little more on the house today, I didn't get any photos of it yet. Hopefully, I can get out there tomorrow and take a few. They are working on the rafters over my sewing room, so that is very exciting to me. I have arranged my sewing room in my mind a million times! Childish maybe, but anything would beat sewing at my kitchen table were I do now.

Hot shower, muscle relaxer, a heating pad and off the bed with you! I hope it doesn't last long!

I know exactly how you feel. I was laid up week before last and am still being very careful. Couldn't pick my 3yr old niece up today and when I said my back was too sore, she kept giving me a mini back rub.

How wonderful to be planning your new sewing room!

Michelle said...

Feel better soon,Kristie! Your blocks look great!

Amelia said...

Perhaps a trip to the chiropractor is in order...I know mine sure helps me when I have a problem.

As always the blocks are outstanding.

Dear Kristie, I hope you will get better soon. Don´t try to sew you will probably only get worse. Take a rest if you can lie down without much pain.

I found your blog through KY Quilt Lady's, and have enjoyed it ever since. You both are right down the Country Music Highway from me.
I hope your back is feeling better really soon.
Your blocks are wonderful!
Happy Birthday to your Mom....it was my oldest's Birthday yesterday too. :)

Hoping you are soon feeling a lot better and can sew again!!

Gina said...

Never mind the sewing just concentrate on that back.
Daft as it sounds try and keep moving a little. Our doctors don't advise bed rest as they seem to think it makes the problem worse.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
