Well, since my last post, I have recovered my mobility. Hooray! Turns out the chiro was right. My alignment was off in my lower back and hips. Am now walking without pain in the knee and back. I told a fib in my last post because I said I'd give recovery tips the following day. Then I didn't post till now. Busy week.
Basically, all I did was ice my back every two hours for one day. I walked very very carefully and avoided all bending and twisting motions. Am grateful that now I am fine. No limp. No cane. While I give credit to the chiro and the careful attention to his instructions, I also give the greatest credit to the Great Physician and the prayers I've received from all of you. Thanks so much.
No MRI necessary. No more pain meds. That is a big plus. Now if the weather would cool down a bit so I could begin walking to lose some weight. If not, there's hope. I can do laps around the lazy river and create my own water-park marathon. Either way, I'm determined. Staying under 1,500 calories a day is helping. However, being sedentary since last December 9th, added far more weight to my waist than I've been able to diet off. Keep me in your prayers as I battle the giants within. Keep me accountable, friends. Keep reminding me that "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me." 2 pounds down and 98 to go. selahV
