On having someone to count on

For the past year, I've had some lower back issues and been to physical therapy to strengthen and heal. After a couple months of no pain, on Sunday night, I had an unexpected really, really bad back spasm. It left me unable to move or walk.  When medication and heat weren't working and the pain became unbearable, I called DC and he came over at 2am to take me to the ER.  After a few hours and a cocktail of meds later, we were home and napping the day away on Monday (one in a Valium-induced snooze, the other just pure exhaustion).
ya, I didn't have a choice!

While we've been dating since early this year, this "incident" was the first real "test" (for lack of better word) of the relationship. We haven't had our first real fight (yet), but have enjoyed fun times visiting our alma mater, hanging in Newport for summer weekends, and most recently getting groovy for Halloween. While I didn't doubt his support for me, I felt so grateful to have someone who literally came to my rescue and tended to me in a time of need. I'm fairly independent and used to doing things on my own, so having to rely and trust in someone else fully was a big step for me too.  Now that I'm on the mend, I realize how special it is to have someone to count on - whether a significant other or a friend (shout out to Ms. Mac for her assistance on Sunday too!), and of course family (sorry, Mom, for calling you at 1am ;/ ).  

I'm seeing a specialist today and hoping I'm as close to 100% for my first day on Monday. My timing is impeccable!  

Here's to a healthy weekend! 

Update! My appointment went well, and I have an injured joint causing the pain. I should be "cured" with some anti-inflammatory meds and couple weeks physical therapy.  Thank you to my hero of the day, B, for my care package and help today! xoxo
