I never got to the conference for my final day. A headache I'd been battling for a couple days developed into a full blown migraine. In defeat, I reached for the migraine medicine and slept.
Later that afternoon, I fell while outside in the backyard with my dog. Unfortunately, I landed on the bricks that form our garden beds and slammed my tailbone hard. Since then I've been bruised and sore. Rest, my heating pad, and Tylenol have helped tremendously in managing the pain. My medical book tells me to expect to be sore for quite awhile.
Through it all, my darling dog has stuck close to my side. Isn't he a sweetie?
