I've had a bit a a tough week. I have been nursing a very sore hip, thigh, and knee for the past two weeks. I finally went to my doctor's office on Monday for muscle relaxers and pain medication. I so hoped that the pain would just go away, but not this time. Apparently my sciatic nerve is inflamed which is causing a very tight muscle. Doctor's orders were lots of rest through Thursday when you may be okay to return to work...(great). Wednesday evening after restful days with lots of ice and fitful nights with little sleep a Thursday return to work seemed the furthest from being a possibility. Thursday I reached the same reality for a Friday return to work. Besides working four hours from home no other work for the entire week. This weekend has been more resting because Monday I've got to get back to work.
What's been hardest is to have nothing to do. Gosh I couldn't even sit up long enough until Friday for even sewing...which is of course my gauge to see if I'm okay to go back to work. If I can't sew...I'm certainly not ready to sit for nine hours at my desk not to mention no pain medication that entire time which can cause one to be drowsy. I'm willing myself every minute today that I will get to work tomorrow!
So Friday I spent time getting the top done on the San Diego Humane Society's 26th Fur Ball "Pawradise" quilt donation together. The blocks were jointly made by Kerry and I so we will both claim half the yardage as used. Kerry will get it quilted and the binding sewn on by Wednesday when it comes back to me for the hand sewing of binding and label. The event is just around the corner and we won't let the pets down!
