short visit

This will be a small blog tonight. I spent about 5 hours at the hospital at a Fall clinic. My back is so bad, the doctor thinks I may have fractured a vertebrae. So he gave me a requisition for an X Ray which I'll get done tomorrow. Also he gave me Tylenol 3 for the pain, thanks goodness. My back has been spasming all afternoon and the pain is just awful. It seems to have calmed down a bit with the pills. Thank goodness. This is  the everlasting tale of everlasting pain and I am sorry to burden you with it but want you to know where  I am if I don't check in. That would be-InBed, once again LOL. I don't really have enough time left to spend it in bed. The clinic was very good and he had some answers for me . So I am glad I went.
I saw in the paper that Baby Doc Duvalier the ousted former president of  Haiti is planning on coming back to Haiti after a long hiatus in France where he lived off the money he stole from the Haitians, to fill the vaccuum left by the political disarray in that country . I'm sure he thinks there is more money to be had from all that was donated to Haiti after the earthquake. I do not believe these people when they say they had had a huge change of heart and only want to do good now, especially when there is money to be had.
That's my political commentary for the evening.
And yesterday's warning about avalanches rang true today when some people got caught in one. I think there was one death in one of the avalanches. There were two of them in the Kootenays. It is so tragic.
I am not sure of the details as I am under the influence.
I won't be going to my embroidery class tomorrow with Kathy, darn it!!!! And again darn it!! I sure will miss it all. Also had to cancel my  Tuesday groups and a lunch with some old friends on Friday.  I'll get it all together and then watch me smoke "em!! LOL
All done, off to bed!!
Have a lovely evening folks.

I'm sorry that you are having such a rotten time with your back. I hope you can get some relief from the pain.

Ditto on Baby Doc. There is much help needed from the weather problems - flooding, mudslides and avalanche. So sad.
