On the way from the tram to the language school this morning, I slipped sideways off the heel of my summer sandals. No big deal, I thought. But an hour later, I started having some pain in my hip. By the time I left to go home at 4PM, I could hardly walk. Thank the Lord I was able to get in to see the doctor who diagnosed a "Schleimbeutelentzündung" - German for bursitis in the hip. You could also do a very loose translation and call it a "slime bag inflammation" which pretty much describes how I feel about it, and about having to miss my gym workout today. The doctor gave me a shot and a prescription for some cream, and said I might be able to work out as soon as tomorrow...that's what I'm praying for.
On the other hand, maybe this was a hint from the Lord to slow down a bit. So I'm taking that to heart this evening and heading to bed early. We're about to have one of our gorgeous summer sunsets, so I'll go out on the balcony to enjoy that first.
