I realized that I haven’t blogged in over two weeks. Yikes. How the heck did that happen?
Mostly, I’ve been just busy and occupied with other things and didn’t even think about it. I’m working on some secret revisions only a few people know about, getting ready for my trip to the States (which involves going to the local immigration bureau office)…
Oh and I’m back in rehab for neck & lower back pain. It seems like I go there every summer. Last year, I was stupid about it and waited until July, and basically couldn’t sleep for weeks due to the most horrendous neck pain. Talk about lost productivity.
This time we did an MRI, and the doctor confirmed that I have a couple of herniated discs. The good thing is that with some extensive (and very long) PT & exercises, I should be able to manage the pain and lead a normal life. The bad thing is that the pain I have all along my spine can cause a horrible migraine. (Which is probably the reason why my head felt so awful recently…) The doctor ordered me to come back ASAP after my trip to the States to resume my treatment. If he had it his way, I’d stay in Japan and get rehabbed three times a week.
P.S. Buttercup had babies. Again. (I think this brings us up to 21 hamsters, total.) They’re incredibly cute. However, since Buttercup is under some delusion that she is starving (she isn’t; we give her tons of food every day), she always pushes her kids out of the way to get the most delish treats. *shaking head*
