Back Problems!

We had a rough week last week. Slade somehow hurt his back or irritated an old injury and was basically bed ridden. We went to the chiropractor once and the doctor three times. He spent a lot of his week on a heating pad. He was up five nights out of the week crying with his back. They gave him some Naproxen (aka Aleve) but they will not give children much else to help with pain. To make a long story short, it's finally better so we are going to just really monitor his activities (tricks on the trampoline, hanging backwards over the couch, diving into the pool, getting thrown of his scooter, etc.) He hasn't gone to any of his football practices and missed his games on Saturday. Poor Dude, but things are looking up. I think he might start back to football practice on Thursday and we will see how that goes.
