We made the 8 1/2 trek out to East Hampton by way of New York City, and now I'm in my Mom's lovely studio in the woods, struggling with Windows, a cable connection, and a thrown out back. The back is real trouble -- can't straighten up and I have to walk bent-over like an old man. What I learned from my shoulder when I tore my rotator cuff is that pain is not edifying. You learn nothing from pain except that it hurts. Well, this hurts.
Um, what's the technical term for a thrown out back? Google is suprisingly mute. Do situps, or don't do situps? Drink heavily, or not?
Now I'm trying to hook up my own computer to the cable connection, and naturally, rather than providing a page with the necessary information, they have provided a program that does it all for you... except, that it does not do it properly, and being opaque, cannot be fixed. Ah, well.
Jesse, though, is having a blast with all the people to pick her up, and the Bouzou Dog is in the country -- what could be better for a dog?
Now for some codeine, perhaps a swim, and eventually another bash at Internet...
I'd recommend a good sit in the hot tub, and from my time spent previously in the Hamptons, I can say unequivocally you should have little trouble finding one of those out there! ;-) Bon vacance (sp?), and feel better.
I'm very sorry to hear about your back, sweetie. I've been plagued by back troubles most of my adult life and no amount of pain killers and muscle relaxants have helped much -- except to make me too weak and dizzy to work or drive my car. Do what fun joel said, have nice hot soak in a tub, followed by a thourough massage by your loving and devoted wife.
Get better! Back pain sucks! But it is a great chance to get a ton of killer massages. Take advantage.
