Well I am out of work on disability until Sep 15th at least. I have alot of therapy, and I have percocet for the pain, Soma for the muscle spasms, and Vioxx for the inflammation. Alot of piils that I'm sure are reaking havoc on my stomach though I haven't had too much problems with the stomach yet. (knock on wood)
I'm looking at it as a 5-1/2 day work week, the extra "half" being setting the alarm for Saturday and waking up at my usual 5 a.m. Getting to a state of semi-consciousness and fighting the urge to fall back on the pillow is always half the battle Monday thru Friday. The bonus, of course, is that Saturday morning I can simply prop up my pillow, grab the remote, and screw the shower and shave ;)
I don't want to miss that first series with Chad, CuMar and the boys!
