Back Spasms: A good thing!!
Now how can back spasms be a good thing?
Well yesterday went like this. I had an outpatient type surgery lined up for yesterday afternoon at 4 pm. I made an appointment for it several weeks ago, and while it was not life threatening, I really wanted to make sure I went through with the surgery. The problem was, yesterday my back really began to act up. I have back problems anyway,and yesterday was the most pain I have been in for years.
So I call up the bone cruncher and she says she can get me in at 3:15. Now that would give me just enough time to get "adjusted" as she calls it, then head up to the hospital for my surgery at 4 pm. No big deal...there is just enough time to do both.
Well it seems my back was worse then I thought. My shoulder (remember my shoulder injury from that snowmobile accident,well its still pretty bad and pulling my lower back out of alignment. I am having back spasms because of it. So after spending 2 hours at the Bone Crusher getting shocked, manipulated, manual massage therapy and ultra sound, its well past my surgery alloted time.
So how is this all good?
Well my surgery was to make sure that Alyson would be an only child...if you know what I mean. I love children, but after having one, I was a bit leery to try my luck a second time. I mean the chances of having a healthy child, that is as cute, well behaved and whom sleeps all through the night, is pretty slim. I was pretty sure I wanted the surgery, but Patty was not so sure. But I am not one to believe in coincidences. I think everything happens for a reason. I have enough respect for COC rules to go any further, but I think many of you that head to certain buildings on Sunday's know what I mean by that.
Kind of scary to think someday I maybe a Dad to another child, but I guess Alyson is destined to have a brother or sister! (I hope a boy. I would like to my Dad to have a Grandson, and because I have the tractor cutouts in the spare room baseboard already
Its just kind of funny how certain questions in life are answered for you if you are just smart enough to see that things happen for a reason.

I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
