A trip to the ER

I have been having some back pain for a few weeks. Taking over the counter pain medicine has been helping until this week. It had really gotten worse over the past two days. Last night at work, I was having trouble getting up from the chair and walking. I even had tears in my eyes at one point. So my coworkers told me to go to the ER. So after I got off at 3, I headed on over. Everyone was really nice. I was able to get a muscle relaxer and some pain medication. I got several tests and Xrays. The verdict is that I have early stage of disc disease and have sprained something on my left side. I got some prescriptions and headed home. I'm so thankful that it seems that the sprain should get better and I can do some things to help the disc disease. I am beyond grateful for the medication. I went and saw Ella again. She is still the sweetest baby.
I just love this girl so much!
