A step back

Well, last night was a painful one. I didn't get much sleep as my side was shooting pain. Needless to say, I was not able to go back to work today. I have been on the couch all day. I did finally get some much needed rest after Teya left for school.

I spoke with my doctor this morning and said there is fluid on my lung and a spot that appears to be scar tissue. I hate the word "appears", but I'll sit with it for now. The fluid isn't anything to worry about at this point. They recommended that I take an Advil with my current pain medication as this could help reduce inflamation as well as use a heating pad. I am now sitting on the couch with a heating pad and it feels good. This does lead me to believe that I did something to the muscle and it is not a lung issue, which is good.

I am a little depressed that I have been forced back on the couch and could not return to work. I am hoping that this will not last long, but I will get as much rest as needed so that I can get back to living.
