To update you on my back issues.....
I slept okay without a muscle relaxer pill. I was able to sleep on my right side with no discomfort. But did get up with a very tight stiff back. 20 minutes with moist heat helped that.
Even though my back has been doing a bit better, my doctor has decided it wasn't good enough. So he ordered x-rays. I went in to a radiology clinic this morning, and they took about 10 from various positions. I was surprised to hear from my doctors office early this afternoon with the results. Good news, no major issues like a bulging disk or ruptured disk. Instead, it found an area causing muscle spasms. ( I could have told them that!)
So, my doctor has recommended physical therapy. 2 -3 times a week for a month. The office referred me to a place called Peak Performance. Sounds more like a place I'd take my car to but anyway, they called this afternoon to set up my schedule. My first appointment is next Monday, Oct. 1st.
I'm hoping my back gets better with self care before then, as I can't imagine what it's going to cost me. But at least I have options should my back remain the same.
And in other news.......
Last week, a customer came in for a haircut, and brought me some pics she ran across and thought I'd like to have them.
These pics were taken at a salon staff picnic way back in 1983. And the customer that brought them in use to be a receptionist at our other salon.
Yep! That's me in the red top, and Craig with his back to the camera.
Oh to be young again!
Anyway, the rest of the day was mowing the yard, cleaning windows, and more laundry.
For dinner, Craig is making a home made Chicken sausage helper. He cooking some noodles, veggies and some Chicken sausage. Sounds good!
