Pain in my... lower back

So I’ve had back pain for at least 10 years. It finally got bad enough that I gave in and went to the doctor and he sent me to PT. I think I may have finally turned the corner. I’ve taken no meds since Friday and I’ve had not too much pain. Today I had PT and came home and did my 3 10 minute walks at speed. I didn’t have any pain while I was walking. This is huge!
I keep doing my pushups. Those hurt, but the pain will dissipate if I hold the final one long enough... I’m making progress!!
Tomorrow is another day full of exercises... and walking... and chores.
Life is good.

It’s Sunday morning  - early.
The air is crisp and the leaves are starting to turn.
We returned from Canada yesterday after my mother in law’s funeral. She was 93. She lived a long life. She was an amazing lady who loved her family, loved ice cream, and definitely loved to laugh.
She will be missed.
Now it’s back to regularly scheduled programming - PT, general running, and more - until Friday when I head to Florida with my dearest childhood friend for some well deserved fun in the sun. I guess I’d better check my sun screen supply!
This morning, I’ll be at church... singing - ok attempting to sing - and reading the “prayers of the people”. Afterwards, I hope to be sitting, listening to Mr’s sports on TV, and crocheting. No promises, there, of course, but I can hope, right?!
