My back is almost back to normal. Almost 3 weeks of not being able to do anything is torture. I can now move without much pain. I am going to give it another week before I start exercising just to be sure. Then I think I will start out with walking. At least I haven't gained weight since I've been hurt and to me that is a plus. Haven't lost either but that doesn't surprise me. I'm excited about being able to get around again. We have a garden to plant soon. I was able to start my seeds in doors, since it didn't hurt to sit and do that...thanks to hubby for helping. I love this time of year..everything turning green. Thank you to everyone for the thoughts and prayers, it has meant alot.
