Snap Crackle Pop!

Another doctor visit today and outcome is that Snowbird has to go next Friday for another epidural in her tail feathers. Trying to get this pain to go away with physical therapy (strengthen muscles) and injections. If this doesn't work, then the more invasive treatment will be next--SURGERY. Got to line up those disks so that the shifting will stop. If I lay down, the disks line up and pain subsides. If I stand up or sit for any length of time, the disk shifts out of place. So when I walk or sit down, it is snap, crackle and pop and shooting pain. The broken part is rubbing constantly.
So what about my knitting? I have devised a way to prop myself up in bed and knit on some projects without sitting totally upright. Works for a while and then the needles are down.
Hubby and I have tentatively planned a vacation in November, but I don't know if I can take the airplane flight without having to stand up every 15 minutes or so. Do not have tickets yet until I know for sure what is next on the agenda for the lower back.
So for now, I'm going to sign off and go prop myself up in bed and try to get a little knitting time in for the day!

Sorry to hear you're feeling less than chipper little Snowbird. Take care of yourself.
