This will be short, but not sweet. This weekend, I bent over to get something from a bottom drawer while in an off balance position. I could not return to an upright stance. Doctor feels it is the sacrum, the bottom part of the spine that takes the weight and distributes it through the hips and pelvis. Believe me, it is distributing. The pain is unbearable, I cannot sit, lie, or bend, getting in the car requires Mark to lift my legs and wipe my tears. Going again tomorrow morning, but not much he can do. I am exhausted from standing.
Can't do much stitching or sewing that's for sure, but I went through charts and decided on Ann Stone (oldie) from R&R Reproductions, or Mary Monier from The Examplarery. When I subscribed to SANQ before it discontinued, they offered downloads of prior issues and there were several that I liked. But all were lost when the Dell bit the dust. I don't know how long I will be in this condition, but I do know that Advil for the first time, is not helping.
We've had warm and sunny days, I can't even sit on my swing. I walk around outside with a cane, hunched over as if I am looking for bugs.
Hope everyone is doing well.
