Apparently it takes a long time for a back to heal. I thought a month would be plenty of time, I was very wrong, again. When I performed a task, like doing dishes, or laundry, I’d be laid up afterward for two or three days with pain. As time passed, I always had my mind on Calypso. I knew how much she wanted human attention, but I couldn’t give it to her. I needed to take care of myself first, then I could dedicate my all to her.
