My back is improving...little by little with the help of my Chiropractor!!! The first day I went in..he told me that my right foot was 1 1/2 inches shorter than the left foot.So he adjusted my tailbone and I was able to stand straighter right away.Still extremely painful..but was sooo glad to be able to stand without bending forward.:) Then the next time I went to him..my tailbone had shifted and he had to correct it cause the opposite side was troubling me.He adjusted it again the next day cause it had slipped out again.:( Well..today I am suppose to go back to have another adjustment. I sure hope it holds cause this is adjusting the amount of money I have in my wallet too.LOL I still have problems with the muscles in my lower back.They have been strained and won't allow me to sit or stand for very long without protesting ...then I have to go lay back down on my bed and lay flat so it will relieve the pressure some.
I am sure the family is ready for me to get better too and to be able to get back into my routine . Jim and Christy have been helping with the cooking and cleaning.Jimmy has been doing the vacuuming and dishes too..taking the trash out..running to get me something to eat and drink.:) Thanks guys!!!:)
The Doc told me not to mop floors or to vacuum any more unless it is an emergency.To get someone else to do it for me...Sorry kids! :( ....cause I am getting close to having disk problems. How he can tell that..I don't know unless it's the fact that my back won't stay adjusted?? He hasn't taken any x-rays yet...so I will just wait to see about that....but the NOT mopping and vacuuming..I think I will keep that advice.LOL
Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers! How Sweet! Thanks for the lovely comments you have left for me too! I really appreciate it.:)

Hugs,
Valinda
