Thankful Thursday

I’ve been dealing with a bad bout of sciatica for the last 4 days.  I went out for what was supposed to be a mile and a half bike ride.  Due to detours around town, my mile and a half turned into 3 miles.

I wanted to get home, so I pushed it all the way.  I strained some muscles, my sciatic nerve is inflamed to the max, and getting off the couch to do anything is the most painful activity of my day.

For the last 4 days, Johnny has been keeping an eye on me.  If I get up to do something, Johnny follows me all over.  When I go back and lay down, Johnny jumps right up next to me and doesn’t move a muscle other than to hit the litter box, get a mouthful of food, or to come up and get a few scritches.

I’m thankful for my best little nurse who has been taking such good care of me.
