Day #2 with the cane

my cane It was four years ago that I purchased this collapsible cane. I was 63 years old then, and only needed it on an occasional basis. That has been the case for the last few years, and this is one of those occasions, too.

Regular dosing with the Tylenol helps take the edge off the back pain. (I’ll learn not to do too much heavy lifting or furniture moving by myself. I swear I will.) But I’m reaching for the cane again and keeping it close by. If past performance is any guide, I’ll only need to have the cane at my side for a few days. After that the pain should subside and steadiness should return.
