A Pain in the Back and More...

For those of you who don't already know, this past Thursday I threw my back out! This had never happened to me before, and so I called Forrest to come home from work (I was sure that I was crippled for life) and he then took me to the ER. After some X-rays the doc told me I likely had a back spasm, which is nothing serious, but I was likely to be pretty sore for a few days. Little did I know that my mother, upon receiving my initial call (made in tears as Forrest was on his way home to help me) had already packed up and gotten on the road from Corpus (with my dad) to come help me.

Cut to now-- my parents have stayed for the weekend and we have had a lovely time. Aside from some soreness, my back hasn't troubled me too much. If this happens again I will just know to take several Ibuprofen and suck it up. One neat thing that came of this is that Augie now has a new toy/present/tool! My dad made him his very own "kitchen helper".


On Saturday we had a little fun letting Augie try some avocado. He was confused at first, but the end consensus was "nummy!"


Today he got to spend a little cousin time when Tammy and Kaleb came over to visit. Isn't it funny that I am equally close in age to Tammy and Kaleb, and that Kaleb is equally spaced in age between Augie and myself?? Think about that one!

Awe! Yay for Mommies! So glad you had some help, back problems are no joke!

Could it possibly have been caused by that chunk of a child you have? ;) (Chris has been seeing a chiropractor because tossing Otto around really works you over.)

That is a real possibility!
