Temporary Absence

Hi all!  I am popping in to say I will have a little delay on my project of the week and a tutorial on needlefelting I planned on posting.  I slipped on ice a few days ago and I hurt my neck quite badly.  I thought that with stretching and alternating hot and ice packs that I could get it to go away- but it is getting worse.  I had to grit my teeth to finish up projects I absolutely needed to get done, so now I am going to the doctor and taking a tiny break to try to get my neck to heal---I'll be back soon though!  If I said I would do something for you and I have not done it would you please remind me----I feel as if I dropped some balls here while I am hurting so much!

Hope you are better soon, Kim. My hubby slipped on the ice at the back steps at work but wasn't seriously hurt, thank heavens.

So sorry to hear about your fall - definitely see the doctor!!! I wanted to let you know that I finally sent out some snail mail for you today. I know it took me forever, but I promise to do better next time :)

Kim said...

Thank you everyone- I am sure it will get better, but the pushing through things is not helping it any- it's just getting worse. I just got back from the doc and he scolded me pretty good. I'll be resting a couple days now....I always worry about other people when they are missing from their blogs so thought I would just put a little notice up so no one wondered where I went to. I'll be back next week, I am sure. NO crafts the rest of the week for me though- doc's orders :(

Laura- I have not had those stiletto boots on for years :( I just got the drink more water and eat more healthy, less salt lecture from the doc too! Guess I better get serious about my health this time, not just talk the talk:(

Xuxana said...

That's terrible! Yes do take a break. Your neck injury sounds awful. Glad you'll be getting to the docs! Rest and get well soon!

A. Wright said...

Oh my goodness Kim. By all means rest up, no one will fault you for that at all! Hope recovery comes quickly.

Deni said...

Oh No I know what that feels like, I have had trouble with my neck for years!
I have to go to a bowan specialist to get it fixed when it does go!
that helps
Get well soon Kim!

I'm so sorry to hear of your pain Kim. Be kind to yourself and take time to heal.

kibbygirl said...

Oh man, that sounds painfull! We can all wait, you just take care of yourself. I hope you are feeling much better soon!!

Doreen said...

Ohhh Kim, I am so sorry to hear that. You said you will be taking a small absence so you probably wont be reading this until you are feeling better. In any case please take care of yourself and rest. Neck pain can be so bad and stop you from any activity where you have to sit or stand for any length of time. I will miss you and will look forward to your return. Please take care my friend.

Deni said...

Hot packs..... that may do the trick! I have about 5 of those wheat packs luv them!!!
Seems to relieve it a little!!
Hope your doing better today!
