Sometimes you just gotta laugh at what life throws at you
What a day, I had yesterday. Well it began Sunday. My sweet daughter called Sunday morning, (the morning after homecoming) where all the girls had landed after the dance. All the senior girls slept on the floor. Meg woke up and could not turn her head without intense pain, and when she got up she passed out. When I got to her she could not hold her head straight. Of course it was Sunday, and our Chiropractor was out of town. I knew it was some kind of terrible kink, or pinched nerve. By the time we got home she could at least hold her head upright. We iced it off and on and it helped. Monday morning I took her to the Chiropractor and he new what is was, tortacholis - not sure I have spelled that right. Well it's really a bad kink/muscle thing. He took ex-rays to get a clear picture of what was going on and we were scheduled to go back in the afternoon after he read them. Well, we were on the way to another appointment, and I said, "well at least you don't have to wear a neck brace!" Yep, you guessed it!! When we got back and he adjusted her, he said, "now I want you to wear this for a few days, it will speed up the healing." We looked at each other, I tried not to laugh but could not!! She just groaned!! Now thankfully they are a little better than what I had remembered. They are now black, much better than cream colored. They are also fabric and adjustable. We joked about how we could dress is up for her. She opted for simple, no additional baubles! She was upset she did not have a great story to go along with it - telling everyone she hurt it by sleeping on it wrong just does not have any zing!! I am thankful it was from sleeping on it wrong instead of some horrible accident - but she is 17. I had to drive her to school, since she cannot turn her head all the way, oh to have your mom drive you again!!! :) As she got out of the car I told her black was really very flattering on her, she did not appreciate the comment!!
