Seems to be so much happening over the last 24 hours.
Appointment with doctor yesterday
and finally found out what is happening to my left leg
with the pain so severe at time and radiates from injury
from fall at ankle to knee.
Strange the orthopedics doctor said ex rays were taken of
everything but the left leg. So ex rays were taken and this is good
but never heard of it. Said the shaft on my leg was severely injured.
Explained that is like the bark on a tree :)
It will heal in time and nothing I can do about it.
Did receive a cortisone shot which helped greatly for knee and the whole leg.
Reminded again how lucky nothing was broken during this fall.
Probably because I have always had a good diet, exercised and weight never has fluctuated.
Said I have no padding on this petite frame of now 109 lbs but have strong bones.
So not headed for any knee replacements :)
Left on cloud nine as I am one that if I know what is going on then I can accept.
Also was told to take Osteo-Bi-Flex and this might help.
Ordered from Amazon yesterday and so surprised at the great comments helping
joints and even arthritis.
Today special company arrived - my daughter and two little granddaughters and guess
I will always call them that even though they are growing so fast.
Lunch at a special local old drugstore and was told serving sandwiches and salads will soon end -
sad as when anyone comes to visit we always go there as it is excellent. They will be selling
ice cream, sundaes and milk shakes. Then on to a local farmer's pumpkin patch and took an image of an unusual old tree.
taken in this cottage as I did not realize how swollen I was around the eyes and cheek
Pictures do not lie :)
I was scolded for not liking them.....
but still want the best pictures
Have not ever been able to relate to my chronological age
as it seems that through my lifetime
I was always thought of as younger
and seems by mind and body lately have been on a different path
but think they are now catching up.
So thankful I can still see beauty and have a good mind....(words I borrowed)
Did not break any bones with this recent fall - but a warning to slow down.
Love my cottage, camera, computer, gardening, online friends and my special children and grandchildren
From one that was born in her grandmother's home,
weighed in less then 5 lbs. Sickly beginning for her
and her 18 year old mother.
Told so many times over the years
that I was so different from the rest of family
with my interests and always going forward.
Was told a number of times if I had not been born at home
she would not think I was her child.
Now I smile at this remark....
