Did you get diagnosed for the specific cause of your pain?

The physiotherapist can feel the muscles that are pulling wrong.

I am feeling a bit better tonight, but after getting 10 hours of sleep last night, it looks like I am back to my struggle to get to sleep at all. I am still coughing but at least my foot is a lot better. I was able to put a shoe on to go see a movie (The greatest Showman, loved it!).
Aw phooey about the sleep. I'm glad you got a chance to go out and enjoy a movie.

To hear what "god bedring" sounds like in Danish, go to https://translate.google.ca/#da/en/god%20bedring and click the speaker. I bet you will be surprised.

Wow, that is interesting! I love languages and wish I had stuck with learning them. Even my French is rusty and I was fluent in my university days and time with the government.

I am so sorry to hear about your back troubles. I, as much as anyone can empathize. I hope you get some relief soon. You need my physio. He does wonders for my back and neck. He is trained in massage, medical acupuncture, physio and water therapy.

I am trying to sit here and stay calm. Tomorrow I go see the Vascular Surgeon. Do I come home with my leg tomorrow, do I get admitted for amputation or will he plan on another skin graft? I am facing tomorrow with great trepidation.

I do know I am tired on being in bed.

Thank you tl. I realized about an hour ago, that this is the first pain free day I have had all week. That is a good sign.

Tomorrow while I am at the doctor's office, they will be delivering my hospital bed. It will make it easier for me to get in and out of bed and for the nurses who take care of me less bending. I am looking forward to having it.

Dang it Taxi, are you contagious? I'm here to make a gripe about my back. Needing a cane to get as far as the bathroom. I have no idea what happened, but stepping on my left leg nearly make me yelp. Bummer...

Oh noes! Contagious across the internet is a scary thought. I hope your back gets better quickly. (((Gentle hugs)))

I hate when that happens, Kayelle. Maybe it's the way you slept last night? If so, I hope you sleep differently tonight and unkink your back.
