Happy Friday and a quick update...

Wow!!! I am starting off 2009 great, right?
I hope you all had a great holiday season. Mine was wonderful but I think I mentioned a lot of that before.
I have some new stamps that I bought a while back that I haven't even been able to ink up yet and another I should be getting in the mail today. I am so excited to get back in the craft room and start creating again. I miss it terribly.
As for me. I was still in pretty bad shape on Sunday. I was very upset because I really wanted to go to church. Both my boys were starting a new class. My youngest actually graduated from Nursery and starting Primary this year. I was so excited for him. He was just getting used to nursery (when we first started back at church he would scream and cry for most of the time). I know he will do well in Primary because he has an awesome teacher AND his brother is already in Primary (he has wanted to follow his brother in Primary for a long time).
After feeling horrible still on Sunday I knew I better get in to see the doctor. I was able to make an appointment for the next day (which is pretty unheard of here). The doc asked me a bunch of questions gave me to drug prescriptions and sent me off to x-ray. He also put in a referral to have an MRI done (we are on a small base and only have a clinic here).
He figures the x-ray won't tell us anything since we are only seeing the bones. The medication makes me feel worse than I do dealing with the pain so I have stopped taking those since Tuesday.
As of right now the referral request to have an MRI done has been denied. I am hoping that it either gets fixed by the doctor or I don't have to go in at all.
Everyday I feel just a little bit better and can move around just a little bit more. Now, I still have to be very careful because if I try to do too much my back will make me pay for it.
I did that yesterday (Thursday) my oldest has speech and my husband has had a horrible schedule this week that we have hardly seen him ourselves.
I don't ask people for help and since I was feeling a bit better I packed my son in the car and headed to school so he can get his speech therapy. I was upset with everything so I decided to get food for me and my son at Burger King (every base has a Burger King) then I went to the store to get a couple of meaningless things. By the time I got home I was in pain.
For the record, if you are working and a kid does something and his parent is right next to him DON'T correct him. Stupid lady at BK corrected my son TWICE for doing nothing with me STANDING RIGHT NEXT TO HIM ERRRRR!!!
Anyway, I won't go on with the other tedious things I did yesterday but I do have to say. The people in my ward are AWESOME!!!
Like I said before, I don't ask for help. But there are some people in my ward that even without asking seemed to know what I needed and helped me and my son tremendously. So, thank you to you ALL!!!
Like I said, I am feeling better so hopefully by Monday I will actually be able to put something crafty on here.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

I know it is hard but you really need to stay down and ask for help. If you don''ll be hurting longer. Hugs and wishes for feeling better soon!
