Arghh......pulled a muscle in my back yesterday....really hope it clears up before I fly on Saturday. At least I've done this enough now that I know how to treat it as soon as it happens. Ice, pain reliever, then move on to heat eventually.
Of course, if I really wanted to prevent it, I could lose some weight and do back exercises, but that means work.
Really, this whole thing is my brother Jamie's fault. My mom and I had to pull out a calf from a first calf recip heifer about six years ago. I swear I had a bigger pelvis than this cow did. Needless to say, a lot of pulling was involved. I've had back problems ever since.
So today I am going to be grouchy and have a pity party for a little while ....old habits die hard.
