I AM the substitute! They don't ask as often, so I hate to say no. Tuesday my niece took them for a couple of hours and they colored easter eggs and that helped. She was supposed to help today and didn't show or call....but the girls have gotten used to hearing "no I can't pick you up because my back hurts." They were even saying it after a while! LOL They weren't too bad, and DS picked them up immediately after work, so I didn't have to make any supper or anything. Pain isn't as bad now. Only took 1/2 meds last night and nothing through the night or today at all. I ache, but it isn't enough to warrant meds. Hospital called to verify appt. They said they can put me in the machine feet first to help with slight claustrophobia! I didn't know they could do that. I should only be in there 20 minutes too. That was a relief. I am taking my mask. If I need it, it will be nice to have it there.
