I have a NARFE meeting at 11:00 am; I have been wearing a back brace because I hurt my back, not as hard as mom but more than normal. I normally rest after twenty minutes and that works well in my situation. She is doing better every day but the pain is the kind you work through and it is frightening at times. The PA said she could do anything and mom has tried.
Sitting and getting up is something she has no problem with; getting comfortable in bed is now her greatest difficulty (she twist and turns as the pain ripples through her body; she does better when I am laying in bed beside her).
