I can stand...I can walk....I can BOOGIE!
Do any of you remember "Good Times", a crazy sitcom from the seventies? Of course you don't, you are probably not as ancient as I am, but maybe you have seen the reruns? On one episode, JJ gets a job working for a phony healing evangelist, and that is his line every time he pops out of his wheelchair pretending to be healed! When I was 18, I played the part of a cripple in a church skit, whose line, after standing up was" I can stand...I can walk...I can run!", but at rehearsal I couldn't help but say the "Good Times" line, but only me and my best friend thought it was funny and knew where it came from!
Well, I said that line this morning because on Tuesday I injured my sciatic nerve and couldn't hardly walk at all and when I attempted it I cried because it hurt so bad.
Because of this awful condition I was in, my husband and I had to postpone a trip to Florida to see my daughter, son in law and grandson and that did not make me happy one bit! At least my daughter Jenny and friend Rachel got to make the trip and I am glad that they are having a great time.
Muscle relaxers barely made any difference until Friday when I could finally hobble around a little. It was the worst pain I ever felt, from my hip all the way down to my toes, ouch!!!
Well, I thank the Lord that today, my prayers and the prayers of my friends and family were answered and I can actually sit, get up and walk! Or should I say, " I could stand....I could walk....I could boogie!!!"
