Jump Back

There seems to be a rule in my house that I had no say in, and it goes something like this: Whenever Daddy sits or lies down on the ground, all children must jump and climb on him repeatedly.

I never thought much about it until yesterday when a pain suddenly developed in my lower back. It didn’t take long for a numb feeling to spread down my right leg. They call it sciatica.

I explained all of this to my kids, just before getting down on the ground to stretch my back and leg muscles. But they didn’t care. The jumping/climbing rule supersedes all other considerations.

If I’m lucky, maybe they’ll pop something back into place and save me a trip to a chiropractor.

Anyone have some advice for dealing with sciatica?
