I've been sleeping a little better each day. I'm now even able to sleep a good part of the night on my left side. I'm still getting up with a very stiff sore back and still using the moist heat for that. But I feel I'm slowly getting better. I'm doing my exercises and stretches religiously, and think part of my soreness is from that. And I don't know if I'm sleeping better because my back is slowly getting better, or if I'm just getting use to the pain. But I'll keep it up, hoping I continue to improve enough before next Monday so I can cancel the physical therapy. If I'm not, I'll go like a good little patient. :-)
And to show you how bad I want my back to get better, I didn't do one thing in the yard this past weekend, even though there was a lot I needed to do, and the weather wasn't bad. We did get some good walking in, as we continue to try and get more physical activity in our daily routine.
And since I couldn't work in the yard, I did get a good amount of cleaning done inside the house.
And now, time for another work week. It's looking so-so as of right now, but that could change. :-)
