Injury update and thank you!

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 :mrgreen:

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.

    “Oy! Lori’s doctor! Give the girl some drugs, STAT!”

    Okay, I feel better now. I hope you will soon, too! Glad your feline warming device is doing her job.

    Oh, and Pilates? It was hard, but the instructor was good about letting me know some modifications for a couple of the moves, and everyone was really friendly about helping me get set up. I watched the clock a lot, but in hindsight, I’m kind of bummed that it’s not at a time when I can take it right now. Maybe this summer.

    Glad you are in a little less pain. Hopefully the doc gets back to you soon.

    John is such an angel and Pixie is a great pal…she must have wanted to comfort you.

    Feel better!!!

    Hi Lori,

    Just came across your site on the CommentLuv site (which I’ve recently installed on my own blog). I’ve had a similar journey (losing over 70 pounds and last Summer cycling from London to Paris in four days).

    I think your blog is great … inspiring and a real indication of what people can achieve when they put their mind to it. Love some of your recipes too … gotta try some of these. 🙂

    Anyway, I really hope the leg feels better soon and that you’ll be up and about again soon.

    Best regards,

    Glad you’re feeling a little better and hope the doctor gets back to you soon. I got Flexeril muscle relaxers from my doctor last week and can only take them at night unless I want to sleeep through the entire day. Have you been using ice/heat therapy? Glad John is taking good care of you and hope you are up and about soon. Take care.
