How falling on your butt will land you in the ER :)

Sunday was Easter for us, and I took the boys to my mom's where we had the traditional roasted lamd on a spit. George was suffering from a stomach bug which John had the previous day and Cody the day before that, so he didn't come.

I was playing with Cody and I tripped on a tree root, and landed on my butt. My left hip hurt a lot and I had difficulty driving home as every time I stepped on the clutch, my hip felt as if it was on fire, but ok, I thought nothing of it.

Monday morning my hip felt better but I was hugging the toilet bowl half the day as, you guessed it, I had contracted the stomach bug. After the 3rd or 4th time vomiting, my hands went tingly, then numb, from the wrist down. I FREAKED out!! All of you reading are artists who work with their hands, so you know what I mean, right?
I ended up in the ER... and now I am in a collar. No lifting, no bending over and I need to rest.

I always hate how doctors tell you to "rest". I am a mom of two, I work full time, I have pets people! I can't "rest"... and I HATE the collar :(

Today my hands are totally fine, I still hate the collar and my stomach feels like it could hold some food down, so as I am writing this I am eating some bread. In all honesty, my neck DOES feel better with the collar on. I need to go back on Thursday. I will need an MRI as my neck is a bit messed up. No wonder; I cracked a vertebrae when I was 15 in P.E. and it was only gotten worse from there lol.
I might need some physical therapy but I will eventually be fine :)

Hope you all had a great weekend lol :)

Oh no!! So sorry to hear this dear. I know how difficult it is when you have a family to care for. Take care of yourself first and leave the extras for when you are better. Let your boys help, they will learn how to do things and become more capable of caring for themselves.
