Finally have a second to catch my breathe
This has been a crazy busy week. It was social media week all over the world and DC was very much involved. Which is still kinda crazy to me.
Before I left for Europe I 2008, things were not social - online at least. But my have things changed. DC is a top tech city now and there are dozens of social media labs around town.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun but kinda crazy as it was a highly decentralized event. There were panels held all over the dc region which was actually great for people who didn’t necessarily want to travel downtown.
So, I went to some and juggled regular work too. Which is why it’s so nice to sit down now.
Weeks with conferences always interrupt regular life and work. Your clients don’t stop having needs just because you’re out getting your social on. And their deadlines don’t shift based on your altered schedule either.
As a result, it was a loooong week. But totally worth it.
Naturally, the moment I sit down to write this post, my little woke up from his nap. After just an hour. Boooo.
Oh, the other big thing from this week was my back check up. Apparently, my disk was not only herniated (which was not a surprise - my disks have been all jacked for years) but what was surprising was how bad it had gotten since my last MRI in October.
The week before my surgery one of my disks had ruptured and all the stuff inside had burst out, filled every space and was pressing against my nerves from every angle. Which is why I had been excruciating pain and had extensive nerve damage.
It sucks. But I’m glad to know what had happened. The surgeon had told my husband that it had been far worse than they expected, but that could mean anything - to me at least.
My leg is still numb and is weaker than its ever been. But I’m expected to recover and the nerve to grow back. Woo hoo!
I’m off now. It’s a gorgeous day and I need some vitamin d :)
