But luckily, he had his rocking chair. And he spend a lot of time in it. Not just for those two weeks, but for all his presidency. He had one in his bedroom, one in the oval office, and even one in Air Force One. "Where I go," said JFK, "it goeth".
I never liked the pads he had on his rocking chair - covering up the seat, the back, and even the arms - but they did make it more comfortable - and he had a REALLY bad back. For more color on that, maybe watch The Crown, Season 2, Episode 8, "Dear Mrs. Kennedy" - where you'll get a "dose" of knowledge about his pain medications etc etc.
So, I sign off of today's blog - wishing you a happy and healthy back, hopefully made so not by painkillers, but by a wonderfully ergonomically made rocking chair!
