Honeymoon here we come!

It's finally vacation time! Were currently waiting to board our flight.
A little catch up on my pain... It's still here and I am now on medication. I woke up Sunday feeling great. A little sore still, but I wasn't in as much pain and I could walk. I didn't do much at work, the most I lifted was a few 10 pound weights. Around 5:45 I was starting to get soar again so I sat down to rest. At 6:00 I had to cover the cashiers lunch break so I figured that would be perfect. Around 6:10 I was starting to hurt more so I got up to stretch. Oh man it was horrible! All the pain came rushing back and I could barely stand or walk. I had Frank come get me at 6:30 and spent the rest of the night in bed.
Monday morning I called medical in hopes I could get in as soon as possible. They had an opening in 10 minutes! Normally I would see a chiropractor to help the pain but I knew I would need more than 2 visits. That would just be a tease. So I had to go with my last resort. Medication :/ 
It was also my first time having to have a note to get out of work since there was no way I would have been able to work Monday and Tuesday. I pretty much slept both days away.
They help the pain but make me really tired. So we'll see how this goes. I'm also glad I didn't book the wine tour we had been planing since I can't drink while on these. 
To top everything off Ellie got a UTI today. Poor girl. She can't catch a break. 

I haven't decided yet if I will Instagram through out our vacation. But I will for sure be off of the blog and Facebook.

4 days out from vacation and my lower back goes out plus sciatic issues :( why why why!?? I'm praying I wake up all refreshed and better... Too bad nothing with my back heals that quick.

Besides this new turn for the worse not much else has been going on. I've been really busy with work, FRG stuff and just every day happenings. 

Ellie has been doing amazing on her medication. We need to lower the dosage but I'm just waiting for the vet to get some in. It has made us so happy to see her wanting to play again.. Running up the stairs.. And just looking healthier and younger. All that time praying for her paid off when we finally got a diagnosis :)

A few pictures.. Of course...

(My hair has been looking amazing lately
