I's official....I have the prettiest legs in the world don't I?
So....this is why I havnt been on line much you guys....I have been off work for 3 weeks now and have to keep my legs elevated as much as possible.
I am going out of my mind because it is not getting better, I have a doc appt today again....5th appt in 3 weeks....2 of them being specialists. They say it is a form of vasculitis and they think is is a reaction to a high blood pressure med that i was on....how ever i have now been off that drug for 2 weeks and it has not even started to clear up...only get worse.
I have been approved for short term disability which at least helps pay the doc bills...
Other than that it is all a wait and see.
Sorry if I grossed you out...it feels worse than it looks at least...lol!
The weekend before last I noticed tiny red spots around my ankles...i wrote it off as heat rash from running around sweating at work but within a couple days it was worse so last Wed I went to my doctor...she ran blood work & sent me to a dermatologist on Friday who took yet more blood, urine , chest xray and cut a chunk of meat out to biopsy. (under the bandage which u can see is still bleeding thru after 3 days as this pic was taken last night) so I am dealing w wound care as well and i cringe every time i remove the bandage as it is sticking to all the sensitive tissue. Ouch!
The tests which have come back are all good....still waiting to hear on a couple and the biopsy wont be back till next wk so they cant offer any treatment til they know what that says. My doc says he thinks it is a form of vascularitis but they need to know what is causing it to treat it.
Meanwhile I am to keep my legs elevated as much as possible.
Took the girls on a one hour walk with our new neighbor Emily and her Great Dane Capone...I was very proud of them...they settled in very nicely once they realized that he wasn't going to eat them! They kept up for the entire hour as well....little tiny legs moving like hummingbirds compared to Capone's!!!
I snapped a quick one on my cell...not the best but you get the point...
And below are my girl's...in the same exact position for 2 1/2 hours now...totally tuckered out!!! LOL!
