Unfortunate Deja Vu!

This is the type of post that I never want to have to write...

I blew out my back today...during lunch. Yes...during lunch. My father-in-law was in town so we all went to get at our usual Mexican restaurant. At one point during lunch, my 3 year old said he needed to go potty. As I was lifting him out of his high chair...BANG...there goes the back.

This is not the first time this has happened. I dug back into the Phat Disney Geek archive to find my "Stopped dead in my tracks!!!" post from June 2007. From what I remember from back then, this feels almost exactly the same. The bad news is that this is SO not what I need right now for so many reasons. The good news is that if this time follows the script from 2007 I shouldn't be out for too long.

My words from yesterday have been ringing loud in my mind since lunch. How do I choose to react to this? Get down or get stronger? The answer is obvious one. While I may be limited somewhat physically, I am only limited, not incapacitated. This is a golden opportunity to build some mental strength...and faith.

I did get out tonight for an easy walk just to loosen things up some, but also to see what my limitations are. Walking was fine, but right now running just isn't happening. So, right now I'll be doing a lot of walking.

So, now more than ever...KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!!

Sorry to hear about your back - that sucks!

Congrats on getting out and walking. That's just as important as running right now, it's time on your feet that counts.

Keep the faith and keep doing what you can do!
