Today's weight: 169.4
My back has gone out - something that hasn't happened in 25 years. Somehow in my teens, I did something to cause sacroiliac strain. I spent my twenties learn what I could and couldn't do - the hard way. And for the past twenty some years, I haven't had but the slightest twinge. Until Wednesday evening.
Blame it on the cats. I was trying to get Tag(our siamese kitty) to learn to be gentle with Harry, my 14-year old cat whose health is failing. So, I picked up Tag, carried him to where Harry was sitting and crouched down, still holding Tag, but twisting a little so I could get him into nose touching range with Harry. Success - noses touched with no growling or hissing. And then pain ripped through my right hip. Nauseating pain.
Now, it's a dull ache, thanks to the muscle relaxers and painkillers.
Talk about a pause.
