A week ago yesterday, I woke to a pull and then pop in my neck. Not a good think when you have Degenerative diisc Disease and have a metal plate and 8 screws in the neck. It bothered me that day and with every day since, it just got worse and worse to the point where I had severe pain in my neck going up into my head. Early Wednesday morning I ended up in the ER in severe pain. Luckily the plate and screws were still in place but I somehow managed to severely pull the muscles in my neck. It is amazing how much you do with those muscles. I have been off work this past week due to the pain and the fact I couldnt hold my head up which is kind of a problem when you work on a computer all day. I have a wonderful and concerned boss who has been patient with me and allowed me to be gone. In all of this I have had 2 quilts to complete which have both had alot of applqueing. Luckily the NY quilt was finished but the Dodger one was still requiring a ton of work. My sweet mother took over it and finished the appliqueing and sewed it for me so I would be able to make my deadline. Now I just need to get it to my quilter!!
