    But her mommy has a slipped disc! Did it on Tuesday but ignored it...and hobbled along...I'm used to having back pain and generally pain doesn't stop me. However, I still can't use my left leg properly so decided to go to the doc. I'm supposed to rest for a week at least and then if I improve with steroids and NSAIDs I can slowly get back to being a bit more active.

    What's killing me more than anything is that I'm not supposed to drive or walk the dog (and I usually drive Bella to interesting walks!!). My mom has been brilliant helping out, but I do sneak in a couple of small walks a day with Bella:eek::eek::eek: shhh...and lots of playing at home.

    Just thought I'd update you all.

    Oh no :(. You have my sympathies - the pain can be excruciating I know.

    I've cancelled Monday Tuesday.... hopefully I can see 1 or 2 on Wednesday if I take it easy....and I have a fairly busy Thursday and Friday... unless I don't improve in which case I will have to reassess.

    Thank you. I must sound like a mad-woman...but do you know that having to rest is more excruciating than the pain?!?!?! I'm not a sit still and let people do things for you kind of person!
