Bruised tail bone....from a fall.
Wm had a fall in the bathroom. This really sent us on a backward spiral. I had to have a neighbor come in and pick him up off the floor. William had started to skip his pool workouts. His back had started to hurt again. The tail bone was bruised or fractured. I did not know which, It happened on Thursday. Friday He was able to go to the pool. sat he could not get out of bed. I read on a web site that the pain gets worse after a couple of days so true. On Sat I am debating whether to bring him to the hospital via the ambulance. I call my son, who just happens to be a physician. he helps me decide to wait and see. if the tail bone is fracturered ..treatment is rest and pain pills. I have pain pills he, talks to Wm and is able to ascertain that it is not too bad. While lying down he is fine.Sooooooooooooooo fast forward in a week. It is SUnday. and I tell Wm that we need to decide....Church or pool. He does no have energy for both. He agrees that we need to do the pool. I go to the warm pool. Just as we get there I see lighting. I turn and drive back to the other cold pool. It is far enough away that the lightening will not effect us. THe cold pool works out well. Wm says that the cold water makes him feel good. It was cold at first but he is able to walk and move with no pain. It is amazing...he wants to stay in the water. Even when I say that we can leave. It is raining when we get out. but we got our workout done. He is sleeping. Wm has decided that we cannot let the pool workout slip again. Let's see how long this lasts. But, that little dog Mumbles is such a dear. He makes Wm feel good. A dog is such a good companion. I do advocate a dog for everybody. It took me awhile. to get a dog for Wm...But it is most certainly a blessing.
