The day before the stove got delivered, my husband had his wisdom teeth removed (which wasn't really unexpected since I scheduled the appointment) and started the process of giving up his Grizzly addiction (that's where the issue comes in--he's pretty unfriendly sans nicotine). So he was off work 3 days last week recovering.
Today I woke up to him not being able to get out of bed with a back injury. So on the third day of school, I called in so I could take him to the doctor. Luckily my principals are very nice and were understanding about it. I'm not thrilled with the doctor's diagnosis of a strain with a prescription and an order to stay home from work for another 3 days...not because I don't think he knows what he's talking about, but because the examination didn't seem very thorough, and I haven't seen my hubs in this much pain since he traveled to Cincinnati with a broken back to buy my engagement ring. If it's not better soon, as in tomorrow, we'll be seeking another opinion.
So, say a little prayer for the Elgin household. The Mr. is hurting and the Mrs. isn't used to having to be so nurturing.
