Need a short break

Posted: Thursday, May 08, 2008 by Travis Cody in

My favorite player, Kobe Bryant, is the NBA MVP.

My favorite team, the Lakers, is 6-0 and the only undefeated team left in the playoffs.

The American Idol top 3 is David Cook, David Archuletta, and Syesha Mercado.

The posts keep stacking up in the reader, but I need a short break.

I can't shake this shoulder and back pain. I caught a break last night and the pain was manageable, but today it was back with a vengeance.

I'll be back in a few days.

  1. Ah, nuts. Well, take care of yourself!

  1. Sorry you are in pain Travis. Get some rest and we'll see you when you return. Best to Pam. :)

    Take care of yourself - I've been fighting denial over a kidney stone, with its accompanying stabs of pain, so I really feel for ya!

    Sorry to hear you're in pain again Trav. Have you tried Arnica Gel on it - it really does work wonders, I used it on my knee before I had the surgery.

  1. Bond says:

    Take your time....Feel better...

    So sorry you are feeling so poorly

  1. Sorry for the pain. I hope you get to feeling better soon. I've been having more pain in the back and legs this past four or five months and it's really put a damper on my life.

  1. Sorry you hurt Trav. I hope you feel better soon.

    As for Idol I can agree with the David and David show, but I think Carly beats Syesha hands down.

  1. Linda says:

    First off, thanks for sticking with me during my non-blog-reading days of California!

    Second, I am so sorry to hear that you're hurting, I hope it eases up soon. My back felt great the whole time I was in California but I wasn't home anytime at all when it, and my leg, started acting up again as rain moved into the area. I guess for health reasons maybe I really should think about moving back to California like my friend wants!

    Take it easy and take care!

  1. Meribah says:

    Awww, sorry about that, Trav. Take care of yourself and come back soon. Hugs.

  1. Steven says:

    Egads! (Who really says that?) Sorry to hear about the pain. Take a break and heal, heal, heal.

  1. Marsha says:

    Pain sucks, go take care of yourself!

  1. jennifer says:

    Aww Travis, I am so sorry you are hurting. Sending a {{hug}} and comforting thoughts your way.

    See you soon up and around Blogland soon.

  1. Dana says:

    Hurry back!

    :looks around:

    I like you people, I really do, but you get boring after a while.

  1. Kobe Bryant completely deserved the MVP this year. There were a few others that were good and close to Kobe but it was his year. As good as he is its hard to believe this was his first one. Take a break will we be here when your back.

  1. Matt-Man says:

    Feel better soon Travis. Cheers!!

  1. Kimmie says:

    Sorry you are hurting again Trav. Rest, ice, and take care. I will be thinking of you and sprinkling some magic healing dust over you.

  1. Travis says:

    Thanks to all for your well wishes. Taking a couple of days away from the computer has helped quite a bit.

  1. Sending warm healing thoughts and friendship vibes and all that good stuff. Feel better soon my friend.

  1. Kimmie says:

    Still praying for you to feel better Trav.

    Wish Pam a Happy Mother's Day for me!


  1. Anndi says:

    Hug your Mom for me if you go through the woods and all that jazz.

    I'm sure having Pam with you helps with the pain.


    Um, will pulling my pigtails help? I might let ya... maybe...

  1. Roger says:

    Sorry to hear that my friend, hope the Doctor gets ya some good pain pills!

  1. the teach says:

    Travis, I'm sorry you missed my "What if" meme too! But several people mentioned the printing press so don't worry! I wish I could tell you what to do about you back and shoulder pain. Do you have a problem with seeing a doctor? Ann orthopedist who might give you some pain killers for the time being, til it's worked out. Maybe you need an MRI and some physical therapy too.

  1. Back pain sucks. Hope you feel better soon.

  1. cathy says:

    I hope you are soon feeling better. Staying away from the PC is a good idea when you have back and shoulder pain.

  1. Leigh says:

    Travis, I am so sorry you are in pain. I can feel for ya. I too am a back sufferer. When it hits it takes you down. I hope you take it easy and are feeling better soon!

  1. Jeni says:

    Oh, Trav, so sorry to hear you're having issues like that. Please, take care of yourself, get as painfree as possible (as quickly as possible too)as I'll miss your posts and your visits but definitely can understand your logic. Take care.

  1. Jamie says:

    Take care Travis. I hope you feel a lot better soon.

  1. Grandy says:

    Oh I hope you're feeling better soon. Congrats on your Kobe award. I know this pleases you to no end. :)

  1. jennifer says:

    It was wonderful to hear from you today! I hope that means that you are feeling MUCH better.

    Take care of yourself Travis.


  1. Oooh, Travis! Please do take it easy--take care of yourself. Hope you feel much better soon! CAKE will be eaten in your honor.
    Sorry I've been AWOL, btw. Still playing tour guide for my friend.
