Ode to Chiropractic

I am in some pain. Somehow I picked up the Bubbs wrong this morning and I must have stretched/torn some muscle because my back is really hurting me. I spent much of the day leaning against the couch because it was the only thing that felt comfy. Luckily, I am blessed to now be in very close proximity to a chiropractor (my awesome BIL) and he was able to squeeze me in today. Basically, he tortured me (just joking - but he did literally "ice" me to help numb my inflamed muscles) and helped get me on the road to recovery. Next time I see him I hope my back's feeling better so I can get an actual adjustment. If you haven't tried seeing a chiropractor, you should! Plus I am just in awe of my BIL because he is so smart, and he has his own practice and business is good right now for him (because he is great at what he does - puts people at ease and explains to them what they have and what he can do to help them). And of course thanks to my sis for helping run BIL's clinic and for watching the kids today for me. Anyway, I am now putting an ice pack on my back for 15 minutes (doctor's orders) and then going to bed...

Ouch!! I have done that many times. My Chiro is one of my best friends. Keep icing and get better fast. We will miss you at McD's today.

Awwww! Now...did you HAVE to say that since I read your blog? :) Hee. Hee. DH did feel like he tortured you with the ice, but I asked him if that was what you needed and he said that was definitely what you needed. So, sorry for the torture. Hope your night was okay. Come on down if you want/need to this afternoon.
