Remnants and Reflections

In stretching this morning, I realized the motion that hurts my lower back the most is extending my right foot.  This tells me driving as much as I did is the culprit.  I can work on that.

Sitting quietly, listening to my body, I can feel small twitches or spasms all over.  I wonder if this is a spastic event with the new norm.  It’s kind of funny.  I’m sitting here drinking coffee and typing this article and different parts of my body just jump, randomly.  I’m having trouble remaining still, and as always, my hands hurt.

I do plan on attending Mass.  I’m going to take an oral Baclofen with my morning meds.  After mass is a feast and celebration.  I want to take photos of the people and children for the website and to mark the event.  I love people and the biggest frustration of all of this ordeal is the limiting of my interactions with them.

I also have tickets for the Play this afternoon.  I’m withholding judgement on attending, but right now, it doesn’t look so good.  My wife and daughter will have to attend in my stead.

My prayer is that as this progresses, that I am able to thwart the extreme pain and maintain a modicum of mobility.  When you are feeling a high level of pain consistently, it warps your mind.  I don’t have even a fair recollection of time since last December.  It is a blur.  I can recollect specific events, but everything is hazy.  I do not wish to return to the haziness.

Thanks for reading and God Bless,
