59 - Laid Up

59 - Laid Up, originally uploaded by carolfoasia.
- Suffering from or affected with an illness: down, ill, sick, unwell.

Woke up with a cold. Then, I felt a back spasm coming on (maybe caused by yesterday's 15 mile ride in freezing temps, doing the leg curl at a higher weight, or not stretching and taking a shower after my bike ride home from the weights). George came home and massaged out the opposing muscle that was pulling the muscle that was spasming and set me on the massage table (a must for those with back issues IMHO) for a moist pad heating.

This is using my self-timer from below the massage table! It did the trick, and I walked away without my back going out!


  1. The thumbnail on FB looked like an icon! I thought it was going to be one of those little pictures in a church! LOL You look great. Such a smile! I love you.

  2. You're so funny! I love this!

  3. Wow, I think I might feel just a TAD sore if I attempted such a feat. At first I thought this was a halo brace! Whew! Very fun.

  4. I thought it was a halo brace too. Sorry about your back, but it is a neat photo!

  5. Cool idea and very well executed! Love your smile. I was on one of these tables yesterday. I've aggravated my herniated disc ~ went in for therapy and an adjustment. Hope your back is feeling better.

  6. Ouch Sandy! How did you aggravate it? OK, I have a dumb questions: What is a halo brace? I have no idea what that is. Time to Google?
