I have been away from my blog for awhile.  Too much going on or not enough.

I haven't been doing much creating art.  I seem to be doing a LOT of reading though.

   Two weeks ago I started to get back spasms again.  Haven't had them in ages.
So I went to the doctor and he set me up on a pill regime, not much but enough and by
Saturday morning my back and therefore my life was back to normal.  Or so I thought.

On Saturday afternoon I was fairly busy in the shop. After one customer left I headed into the house  to get my dinner started.  (Lasagna)  As I was walking down the stairs to get on to the patio
I lost my balance.  And down I went. On to the concrete and brick. My customer who is also a very good friend and my husband both heard my screams for help. They came running to help. I had landed on my back.... and put a nice gash in my head.

Off we went to the emergency room.  The doctor was worried so had me get a CT scan to make
sure it wasn't a fracture..  It wasn't.  So he gave me 7 staples..... ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch!!!!!
He then said I could go home.  My back was bothering me but he was pretty sure it was connected to
the spasms I had been having last week.

Well maybe so.....  but today I went to my regular doctor to be checked out a bit more thoroughly.  He says I banged up my back, bruised some bones and set off the spasms again so back to the pill regime.
I have to use the heating pad a lot and don't sleep too well. Funny thing, I never did get a headache from hitting my head.  Just have a hard head I guess.

Once all of this is behind me I intend to get back to doing some art projects.  I have three things waiting for me. Mean while I am getting lots of reading done.

It has been dumping rain here the past few days off and on and everything is really growing fast.  I hope to get a few pictures of my garden when I feel up to it.
