37-4. Nonagenarian Notions: My Trip to New Hampshire

Print Friendly

Returned from my trip to New Hampshire, which was great except for one thing. Did something to my back that kind of immobilized me for almost 3 weeks. All I did was cough! But my PT daughter tells me that, at my age, even a simple cough can result in a stress fracture.  Painful! Nothing much you can do about it except not move so that it hurts more and take pain pills.

Worst thing (if you’ve ever had a back problem you know what I mean) is being unable to sleep in a normal bed. Sometimes a sofa works well (because it has a back you can lean against).  This time it didn’t — slept in a chair for 10 days of my visit to New Hampshire.

Now over most of the problem and find I must do a planned exercise/walking problem to make up for those weeks of not moving much. You can deteriorate fast as a nonagenarian–have to keep moving!

With all this, I still believe I will accomplish latest self-imposed schedule — finish thru 39 in October, and thru 52 before January 1.

Wish me good luck!

  1. Maggy, back problems….the worst!
    You will get through this. You are a strong lady, and an inspiration to us all.
