Thanks Grits. Sending DH over on his own is a good idea, although I am worried that we could lose some in the thaw. What is the general consensus on survival after freezing these days?
Thanks Matilda. Loads of good advice there! I am also getting terrible sciatica and numbness. I'll switch to 'cold' cream rather than the Deep Heat I have been using. I have the brace thing, but it doesn't fit tightly, it is the wrong kind of shape in that it doesn't go in where my back arches. I am swimming everyday, but I can't drive as I can't get out of the car once I am in. I have a scan booked for tomorrow, but there is no way I can make it.
Matilda, how is your back now? Is it better?
