Monday, again. Monday mornings, sometimes it just turns out that way ......
Everybody knows about my left shoulder incident that simply refuses to heal, despite the fact that I have promised never to drag anything with that arm again while driving the golf cart. Promise! The pain will subside and I will forget not to reach backward ........ and will find myself clutching my arm to my chest and moving with great care.
I have been favoring my left side since (seems like forever) July. Last night I was laughing at an aerial view of a church with a broken water main. From the sky, the building is shaped like a symbol of manhood .... and the water is spraying form one end, while at the other end there is a grouping of what looks like umbrellas ........ big round ones.
I got up to show it to He Who was doing taxes and needed a laugh. I bent slightly down and my back grabbed me on the right side, pulling me back to an upright position.
It is my lower back. I am now wondering if my right side was jealous of all the attention to my left side and sought revenge. Or maybe God was teaching me a lesson for having a dirty mind? Sorry, it was funny!!
So, Monday finds me unable to get into a comfortable position. Seems like everything hurts. I have Cujo snuggled close to my right hip, radiating heat to my back. I tried using him as a heating pad to my left shoulder. Even though he is only about 8 lbs., he was still too heavy. The good thing about Cujo is that you don't have to plug him in or re-heat him. He is a constant source of heat. Not too hot, not to cold ...... just right.
I need to make a grocery run and pick up prescriptions, but I doubt Cujo would be allowed in the stores, even though he is my service dog today. I could just saunter in the store with him draped over my left shoulder like a fox collar on a coat. I could be featured on "The People of Walmart".
