Last week around Wednesday I developed back ache but it was bearable.
On Friday Michael returned from a work trip to Durban with flu.
Determined to prove him wrong (he says he takes good care of me when I am sick but am a shitty care taker) I made supper and fetched and carried refreshments and medication.
Besides for burning supper slightly and forgetting his last round of medication which he fetched for himself. I did pretty damn well and in my defence. I DO HAVE A NEW TABLET. I really cannot help being slightly side tracked.
I continued to be a bloody marvellous nurse maid ALL WEEKEND LONG.
Yesterday, I woke up and the back ache was bloody unbearable. Midday I had to get gazillions of boxes of files to a copier and I was swearing to myself while carrying the boxes. When I got home I could not take it any more I went to bed. I thought because the pain was around where my kidneys are located that it might be a kidney infection.
I went to the doctor this morning. I do have a mild kidney infection but the reason for all the pain is I have slipped a disc and my doctor ordered 5 days of bed rest.
Michael is very upset with me.
"I can never be sick on my own you always get something worse and steal my sick thunder."
