Discernable Progress

Finally. I woke today feeling good.  I had to be at work early (The ICU was getting a state award for reducing CLABSI so yay us, yay infection prevention.)  Why on earth they needed to do this at 7:30 in the morning I will never know.  BUT…this allowed me to come into work a wee …

I’m in total rehab mode. I got a little smart yesterday.  After the massage, I used one of the Flexeril tablets for muscle relaxation.  It helped me to sleep very very soundly.  I felt like I had gotten all the muscles feeling better post massage, why let them get tense again.  This actually worked, and …

When that doesn’t …

OK so.. WTH

Can I admit…. I swear I have a stupid black injury and pain cloud over my head. After I wrote my entry for yesterday my back just got tighter and tighter.  I noted that I was having trouble walking.  I knew it was obvious because my poor poor long suffering dog was giving me the …

Training training.

On Wednesday after accupuncture, my pain in my adductor went away. It said Sayanora.  Adios.  etc. Amazingly even though I kind of tried to beat it up quite a bit over the weekend, it never came back. I did tweak out my lower back really a lot. New Massage guy worked on it on Monday. …
