PAIN PAIN GO AWAY, COME AGAIN ANOTHER DAY, LITTLE CHILDREN WANT TO PLAY!!!!
Yesterday, Chad and I went to Target (have I got Melissa, Amanda, Lauren and Kim's attention yet?!). We had a very good experience there as always, but when I was putting Rauly back in to her car-seat, I bumped the top of my head on the car. Not a big deal...it definitely hurt, but I didn't even say anything to Chad. On the way home it was throbbing and I had a slight headache, but again, not bad enough to mention. HOWEVER, I woke up at 2am and my neck felt stiff. I went back to sleep and at 3am I woke up again and the stiffness had become more painful and was radiating down my back. At 4:30am I woke up again and could not even roll over - my head was hurting so bad that I thought I was going to throw up!! I woke Chad up and told him what was going on. I don't often get scared by pain, but this scared me! I was in so much pain this morning that I could barely swallow ibuprophen, and it was actually hurting to breathe. Chad said that I strained an area in my back that affects the "breathing muscles"...guess that's the non-technical term. :) I guess when I bumped my head on the car I must have thrown something out of whack in my neck and back. Apparently him and many of his football friends at HU strained the same muscle and he said it was nothing to worry about but that it would most likely not get better till I used the muscles.
This is the funny thing - I cannot lay down - because I cannot get up. LOL! I currently have cartoons playing in my room and I am sitting in front of the computer - stiff as a board. Thankfully Shepherd can go potty by himself - Rauly on the other hand is a different story! She had a stinky diaper and I wish you all could have seen me. My neck was crooked to the left (it hurts to breathe if my head is straight), but unfortunately anytime I moved a muscle it would send my neck and back in to spasms and I would involuntarily moan. I was trying hard to control it because I didn't want to scare her, but I couldn't keep the sound in...she just stared at me the entire time (which is a good thing because she normally fights me the entire time I change her!). Today is Shepherd's lucky day - it's raining outside which means we have to stay inside and since I can't get on the floor and play, we'll either be reading books, watching cartoons, or playing with toys. Rauly is more difficult to entertain but I figure it's just one day (hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow)...I can handle it!
