I realize it was awfully, awfully rude for me not to check back with you guys sooner, but I took a little sanity break, and then life decided that I hadn’t had my butt kicked in a while, so it obliged.
My children both went through growth spurts recently, each crossed the 5 feet tall mark, and it has really hit me hard. Two thirds of the time they’ll be under my care … is gone. I’ve been “here”, but at the same time I feel as if I’ve missed it, being so focused on other things. I am in somewhat of a panic and trying to refocus my life so I don’t miss these last, important years.
I recently took a really nice fall down the steps. My feet came out from under me, and I bounced on my butt down several steps. I busted my tailbone up pretty good. The X-rays were inconclusive. For all you 10 year old boys out there, apparently being a DES baby meant that I have,amongst all the other weird body oddities I have, a tiny coccyx. [Insert giggle here…]. But, size doesn’t matter…
So, the x-rays had to be sent away, because the urgent care facility didn’t quite know what they were looking at. But, I have some nice drugs. It only hurts today when I go from sitting to standing. But man, oh man, does it hurt!
For those of you who I speak to regularly in person, I’ve been asked not to blog about “that other thing” until we know more. Should be within the next couple of days, I hope.
For the rest of you, “that other thing” sounds ominous, I know. All I can say is that it COULD be a huge, scary thing, or it could be a small thing. We’ll see.
Sorry I was away for too long – I’ll try to do better in the coming weeks.
