Just Lying in Bed...

Just wanted to say hello. I had a facet injection in my back on Friday, and have needed to spend the last few days resting as much as possible. It was the most painful procedure on my back yet, but as my sister pointed out, maybe it's a good thing: perhaps the doctors were able to isolate one of the main areas of pain for me.

I was able to stay in bed on Friday, following the procedure, but then I had a full day of rabbi-duties yesterday (I was mentioned in the New York Times Wedding Section - woohoo!). Today, I taught 10th graders in the religious school, and now I am back in bed, cuddling with Precious.

Here's a picture of my baby for the day - she has really cheered me up a great deal, and has kindly distracted me from the pain. Yay for kitty cats!
How was your weekend?

I cuddled with my cat today too :) (Mitzvah is her name...but we call her mitzie)

So glad you've been resting and taking care of yourself. Loved your stream of consciousness poem...very moving.

I think this was the second time I saw you mentioned in the Weddings section ;-)

For our wedding I promise you'll be mentioned in the Class Notes section of the Brandeis Review :-D

Now, THAT would be a fun paper in which to read one's own name!

So glad Precious is a comfort to you. She looks so very soft and gentle and pretty and sweet...

I do hope you're feeling better today.
