Thanks everyone..:hugs
I know I have to get rid of my cheap flip flops. I can't believe how painful it is falling down stairs. :oops::hit
I scraped my back and bruised my ribs. Yikes it's awful. :old:th
Hopefully it gets better soon..I definitely can't sleep very good. Not that I sleep good anyways. When your young you can fall and get back up running in seconds. At 48 I'm pretty much hooped for awhile :tongue
Chores still have to be done twice a day. Having a bath last night was a challenge. I'll be showering for awhile. :gig

Levi and Pearl are beginning to look fat. :hide
I'm cutting back on the amount of bagged feed I give them. Definitely think I was giving too much by the size of their bellys. I'm going to put out a measuring cup in the feed bag and then I'll always know what I gave them. 🤔👍😂
That's what I did this spring...they are almost back to perfect looking weight now, ...and I put a feeding chart on the wall over the feed so anybody can feed the animals if I am unable to.....
Hope your back is back to normal shortly , and your flip flops become wall art, lol :highfive:

Good morning everyone...:frow
Yesterday I went to the pharmacy and got some back pain meds and some cream for my sore back. :confused::\:rolleyes:
Maybe I bought suppositories instead? :ep:lol: Darn pills don't really work and the cream lasts 20 minutes. Whoopdy do!:duc
My little goats are definitely wanting to come out of the goat yards but I can't handle them with this srewed up back. Good thing I have the goat yards for them.
Raining here again. I'd give anything for a few weeks without rain...:fl

Saw a terrible accident yesterday afternoon. Constantly accidents happen there. Two trucks were smashed and one was on its side. It's a range road turn off onto the hiway. Definitely something has to be changed there before more people are killed and injured. Must of just happened because one guy was laying in the ditch and the other was still trapped in the flipped truck. Ambulance took one guy and stars air ambulance came for the other one. I sure hope the people are going to be okay. :fl

Sorry your back is still out of whack Shannon. Boo to back pain! :tongue
I messed my back up about 40 years ago lifting something heavy wrong.
It became a recurring issue, and I didn't get relief until I saw an excellent chiropractor about 20 years later. I saw a few not excellent chiros, so they are definitely not all good at what they do. I've been pretty good ever since.
Other body parts are crap, but the back- not too bad!

That accident sounds awful. Make sure you are watchful at that intersection :hugs

Yes. Back pain is awful. I hope I don't need further treatment once this heals. :fl
That intersection is scary. Since we have moved her 6 years ago there must have been 100 accidents? Some casualties. 😳🤕

It has been my experience that muscle relaxers work much better than pain meds because a fall like that causes muscle spasms and the nerves are irritated by the spasms....if ya can relax the muscles some and ease the spasms, aspirin will take care of the pain....if ya don't have any or don't want a perscription some wine, beer, or mixed drinks will do the trick....it does have medicinal purposes....even the Apostle Paul stated it.... :thumbsup

The stuff I got is Motrin (Ibuprofen and a muscle relaxer). Definitely was having spasms without the meds. Might have to take myself to the vet. I'm producing way too much phlegm, so I think I might have mild pneumonia? I also think I might have cracked my ribs or something? :th
To top it all off my Dearest, sweetheart Husband the happy fisherman got an impaired driving charge last night! :rant:somad:old:duc
He was still in his boat. My Son had to go get the Van and boat at 11:00 from the lake and bring them home. Then I had to go with my Son back to the lake to get his vehicle. I never got to sleep till 4:00 this morning.
I'm so mad at my Husband I could scream! :barnie
