So…. I feel a little bad. The neck injury that Lloyd got in Maui? The one that I really didn’t give much thought to? Well, it was a little more than I imagined. It made him all lopsided. When I picked him up at the airport he was smiling, but he wasn’t moving his head at all. When he looks around he turns at the waist. And have I mentioned the lopsidedness?
He said it was a big wave that rolled him and slammed him down onto the bottom.This wall will be a good location to document his progress – if his shoulders ever level out again. I made him turn around and saw that his spine was all wonky – his head is a bit to the side of where God originally put it.
He went to the doctor today, who did a series of tests that ruled out an injury to his actual spine. (Whew!) It’s a big ol’ muscle spasm and a few days of muscle relaxants and heat treatment should help, but if it doesn’t, he can go to physical therapy.
I told him the ocean was bad news. *fist shake at the Pacific*
