Thank you all so much for your well wishes and emails on my injury. You guys are really the best 😳
I so rarely get injured, which I am very thankful for. It’s funny how it’s the unexpected things that cause the hurt. I had a very hard time yesterday with the pain and was flat on my back all day and night. I could not put any weight on my leg or sit up, so I stayed upstairs. I moved into the guest room near the bathroom, just so I wouldn’t have to trek down the hallway, which was agony. It seems to be in my hip and leg, rather than my back.
I am doing better today as the day goes by. At least the pain doesn’t make me cry when I move now, so that is progress. I have a call in to the doctor to see if I can get some muscle relaxants, but she is taking forever to get back to me.
Funny thing, Pixie was all upset that I was locked away in the bedroom yesterday. She does not come in there because John is allergic and needs one cat-free room in the house. She kept pushing on the door hoping to get in. When I moved out to the guest room, she slept with me all night. My personal heating pad 😀
I hope I don’t get too used to be waited on. John actually made my protein waffles for me this morning! His first try, and they were perfect.
I think I like breakfast in bed, just without the pain.
I have myself propped upright a little bit, so I can work again. It’s one thing to write a blog post completely flat, but transcribing just wasn’t happening. I am glad I work at home, because I wouldn’t have been able to get out to an office today. At least I can earn some money while recuperating. The Aleve seems to have dampened my appetite a bit, which is good seeing as I am not moving around. I did need to eat a little something for lunch so I wasn’t taking the Aleve on an empty stomach, so John made me a half tuna sandwich and applesauce:
Things are moving along with the closing on my rental house. My tenant moves out this weekend, then I will do the few fixups the buyers asked for (after I feel better). Closing should still be around April 26th. After that, I can start thinking about what my next adventure will be
Lattes this afternoon and a homemade granola bar.
It’s kind of nice not to be ravenous for a change….
I am going to sign out this post early. It’s not very exciting in Lori town right now. I will work on my Gym in a Bag review to post tomorrow.
I have a pair of crutches on their way tonight so that I can be ambulatory and hopefully get downstairs tomorrow. I said to my mother that I felt like Rapunzel stuck upstairs, only I don’t have long hair!
One last picture of sleepy Pixie.
