  • Mood:

State of the Back

For what it's worth: still spasming, but beginning to relax. In fact, it is now noticible when the mucsles do spasm as opposed to when they're relaxed. Getting out of bed first thing is interesting, because things relax enough during sleep, then I make them work (and I am log-rolling to my side, then pivoting upright using legs for weight and pushing with my arms). Things do relax, and they are stiff from being contracted in spasm so long.

It's sort of amusing, actually. The RN portion of the Brain keeps a detailed assessment going while all this is happening.

Sheesh.

So I am precluded from providing patient care because I can't lift. OK, that's good. It's really good from another point of view too; judgement skills while cruising on flexoral leave some room for question...

Thanks to those who commented.
