We're moving on up

I apologize for not posting for a couple of days, and for causing so many of you to wonder how the "big" day went. It went very well. I however, did not. I made it for nine hours on Wednesday, then I "wimped", and had to leave. I was back to not being able to walk ten feet, just like last fall, before my surgery. I am not much better now, actually. I went in to work yesterday, told my DM that I would quit if she preferred, or that I needed a couple of days off to try and get my strength back. She agreed to the latter, so I am off until Monday. I pray that my strength returns, because as of now, I can't make it up the stairs again. This is scaring me, I have already been "fixed", there are no more procedures or surgeries left to help me. I will NOT go back into that damned chair. And I have to try and move tomorrow. Some days, I wonder why I bother to try. Seriously.

I wish each of you a great day today, it IS Friday. I will be around as much as possible, when I am able to walk, I need to be trying to pack. Don't give up on me, I'll get back to my regular posting and reading schedule once we are settled. :)

Hey there. Us? Give up? Are you nuts?

Gypsy said...

Oh no Jamie...that's the worst possible news and what a time for it to happen too. I hope your move goes smoothly and maybe once that's over you can relax a little.

Like abbagirl says "Are you nuts"?

Happy weekend and I do hope this new place will mark the beginning of better things to come.

I think you might just be the hardest working person I've ever (almost) known! I'm SO glad to hear you are taking a few days off. I hope it will be enough time to get you back where you need to be. I know you have to move this weekend.... but please try take it easy where you can. Things should settle down after the move. Gawd! I feel like I'm right there with you, but helpless, because I can't actually help. ACK! I wish I could help. ac

Oh sweetpea - back pain is the worst. I'm so sorry to hear that. I'll be thinking about you and hoping it eases up.

I wish I could come help you move.

Jamie, I'm so sorry that this is happening. I don't know how you manage to carry the load you carry. Rest as much as you can and take care of you.

Don't worry that we'll forget you - we loves you and wants you to be well. You're in my prayers.

Brad said...

Aww, sweets - I'm so sorry - I hope the kids are helping you guys move. I'm sure you know you should be doing NONE OF IT!

I hope things go smoothly.

Maria said...

Oh, dear. Oh, Jamie. I have been there. I know that sick to your stomach feeling when it all comes back and you thought it had gone forever. Hang in got better before. It can improve again.

Portia said...

Oh boy. Some weekend "off" huh? I really hope it helped and that the move went well without you having to do it yourself..? Take care Jamie, prayers from me for all of you:)
