Not well.

         Last time I was here I said I was off to the car boot and was excited about it,well it did not happen.I got up on Saturday morning and the top of my legs hurt just like when you have done a lot of exercise, muscle ache.I just pottered about the house and took painkillers but it was getting worse.Early afternoon and we nipped out to b&q but I was in such pain and my legs kept going from under me it was awful that we just went home without looking for what we wanted.By early evening I was getting a bit worried as I was walking like I was drunk and I hadn't had any thing.I phoned the docs and he said to go to the hospital,that is where the docs is at the weekend for emergency's.After chatting to me and examining me he said that I had no reflex in my right knee and that it was probably from my back.I was diagnosed with a slipped disc after having MRI scans last year,he thought that this may have got worse. He sent me home with painkillers and said if I got any worse over the weekend to see him again and to see my own doc on Monday.
      After not getting any worse or better I went to see my doc Monday morning.After examining me he said my reflexes where fine and I had good feeling in my legs,he thinks that my back has had a flair up and affected my legs in this way it could take up to 3 weeks before I feel back to normal.The pain is a little better today and I am walking better but they do still feel quite weak,I most certainly feel like a old grandma hobbling about. Pussycat Patchouli has wondered why she has not been able to sit on my knee but even her little body has hurt them.I am sorry if this is a feeling sorry for myself post but that is how I have felt this weekend.Anyway I am going to pick myself up brush myself down and paint a smile on my face and get on with it because there are people out there in the world a lot worse off  than me.
      Next time I post I will have some sewing to show you as I have sat and sewn quite a bit over the last few days.Hope you are all well bye for now Love Jill xxx


  1. So sorry to hear about this, Jill. Do take care and rest up as you do NOT want to have to have surgery. I've had 2 back surgeries and the last one in 2008 left me with 7 screws holding my lower back together. I have difficulty climbing stairs, but I'm determined to get up to see the Cathedral from the top! Take care,


  2. Sorry to hear this Jilly - wretched backs are so troublesome aren't they? I hardly know a single person who has not had a back problem at some time or other. Keep warm. In this awful weather we are having it would be easy to get your back cold and believe me - that would make it worse - I know that from bitter experience.

  3. Hi, I'm so sorry you have been in so much pain. I hope you will get better soon. I know how much it can hurt.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures of your sewing projects !!
    Have a magical day.

  4. Hey Jilly
    I'm really sorry to hear you are in pain..Theres nothing worse than back pain it can cause so many other pains in other places...Keep Warm and lets hope the pain leaves you soon...
    Bright Blessings

  5. Oh no, just wanted to stop by to say I hope you're feeling better soon. It's such a worry when you don't know what is going on but as it is getting better that's good news. Look after yourself.

  6. Oh Jill, I am so sorry. I hope you don't get up and do too much too soon. Just take it easy until your back and legs have a chance to heal a little okay. That would have scared me to death. Please get better soon dear friend.
    sending many hugs...

  7. You poor thing Jill, I hope you’re feeling a bit better now.

  8. ohhh no how awful, i hope you are feeling better by now xoxoxox

  9. I know how scary it is when your legs go under you.. I'm glad you're feeling somewhat better, though I hope it's improved more since. Has your doc given you anything for it? Anti inflammatory's or anything that could help? Take care of yourself x
