I've been having terrible back pain. Sure, my back hurt sometimes with my other pregnancies (from what I can remember!) but nothing like this. The doctor said yesterday it's probably because the baby was laying "cattywampus" (Is that a Texas term?) and was probably on a nerve. It's not sciatica. I know that pain. My whole lower back just tenses up something awful. I've tried ice, heat, Tylenol, a warm bath and whining.
So last night when we got in bed, it hurt really badly. We had taken a longish ride in the truck yesterday evening and even though I had a pillow for support while riding, by the time we got home my back was acting up. I was laying in bed trying to get to sleep and thinking about crying. It really hurt.
And then, the children of Pleven came to mind. And I couldn't get them off of my mind.
Suddenly, I forgot all about my back hurting.
If you haven't followed this story, just read this one post. Just this one. The Lord is moving. Please pray.
It will make you forget your back pain or other troubles really quick.
