Just thought I would do a quick update for the one, maybe two people who might still read my blog...I promise I will be back to blogging soon.

I was trying to get all of our cruise pics up but what I never got around to mentioning was that 3 days after we got back I was rear ended in a car accident. There wasn't much damage to my car but there was a LOT of damage to my back.

I ended up with a herniated disk that pushed on a nerve that made my whole left leg go numb. It didn't cause pain. But...I managed to injure my SI joint and that caused very acute, very strong pain in my lower back.

I've had an epidural steroid injection, which didn't work...a transforaminal injection for my nerve that the disk is smushing...and 2 injections into my SI joint to try and help relieve the pain. I just had the last procedures done yesterday and have to give it some time to see if it worked and if it did I can start physical therapy. If it doesn't work, I might have to have back surgery.

So...unless I'm super doped on pain meds, I can't sit here long enough to blog on a regular basis. Plus my camera broke so I don't have many pics of the summer.

So...when I am all better, I will be back. And I think I might give my blog a make-over when I come back...let's see.

Hope everyone has enjoyed their summer!!
