Follow up Ouch


So after posting this afternoon, I went to work. I had to take both of my kids since Eric was at school. When I take Marcus to work, it means a lot of chasing him, picking him up, carrying him and then relocating him to a safer spot. All of this contributed to my headaches getting worse, my back hurting more and the shooting pain in my neck to increase. Before work was even over, the other coaches told me to take because they saw me cringing in pain. So, a half hour before work was over I headed up to the BYU Health Center (with my children mind you) to get checked by a doctor.

Once I arrived and the doctor saw me he said he wanted to take some X-rays. The first thing that went through my mind was not 'oh, maybe that means it could be something serious', it was 'what am I going to do with my children'. Luckily, it is BYU. The nurses came and watched the kids while they took Xrays of my chest, neck and head for 45 minutes.

I guess I am kind of dragging this on and on. To make a long story short, after 3 hours of being at the Urgent Care, I came away knowing I had to wear a neck brace for a week, do physical therapy until neck/back are better, let my bruised ribs heal, take muscle relaxants to prevent my neck muscles from moving the bones and most of all REST.

Luckily, everything should heal in a couple of weeks. Eric thinks I look like a turtle. Hopefully I don't look too retarded.

Ooh...muscle relaxers are nice...as long as you don't have to take care of two babies! Happy Healing!

I feel so bad you aren't feeling well! I wish I was there to clean your house or watch your kids! Feel better!

Good luck with the rest part. . .not so easy with children! Hopefully you get better soon!

Tamber, I ran into Sheri and Stan at the airport, (so random), and Sher was telling me about this, I am so sorry. I hope it gets better soon.

I hope that you have a quick and full recovery soon, but I know that is easier said than done with two little kids.
