As far as good days go, it won't go down in history at the top of the list. On the night before last Richie was really struggling with some bad back pain. It got worse as the day went on, especially since riding in the truck aggravated the pain and we had to be in Seattle all day for "post-op" appointments. It's been so bad that Richie had to go back on his full-strength narcotics in the afternoon and is still on them this morning. Ugh! Just when we thought we were done with those awful meds for awhile. It was kind of a long night, back to waking every 4 hours for pain meds. We were able to get some sleep though.
