Mindful Monday

Monday, April 28, 2014

Afternoon all........... I had a busy morning - was going to blog but figured more news this afternoon so waited. I had dr. appointment this morning.

So last week was terrible, my close friend passing, her service and a ton of pain on Sat and Sunday. My knees have both gotten worse and a very strange and hard pain on outside of my right knee. Glad I had a drs. appointment booked.

He checked my shoulder, good as it will be unless more calcium spots come or burst. My elbow is not great but he suggested re starting the 1/4 of nitro patch. Will try that some more. He did a complete physical on my hips and knees. He figures they are both somewhat IT band related. both sides are tight. However the hard ball feeling and such didn't come when he moved them, only on L side when I stand still and the R knee when he moved it a bit but mostly where he put his thumb. So he has ordered an xray to make sure there is no stress fracture cos of my knees being so bad and limping he said could have messed my leg but he highly doubts it. err on side of caution.
He wrote up a chit for phsyio for hip, elblow, and knees. lol I will be there all day! LOL
He also ordered the xray, gave me more script for the nitro for my elbow and gave me the name of a very good book. I asked could he refer me to dietican, He said he would but gave me the name of a great book that "if you eat as he suggests ( this dr from Toronto) you will lose wt." I thought hmmm you may know my body well and all its aches and pains but you don't know my mind well lol
So he said it is $15 at chapters and I checked library and they have 3 copies and I am 2nd on list so shouldn't take too long. then if it is good I will get it from store.

Today is rainy and dull and my aches are there but not as bad as the past 2 days. Glad for that for sure.

OH Micheals had chalk boards in various shapes on sale for 30% off. I have wanted to paint one wall with chalkboard paint but hubby refuses. So I said I would like one of these, have waited for ever. well the board was 7$ and chalk was 2.75 and I got it all taxes in for 7.21 So have been writing a motivational quote on it daily. Figured help both of us, and I love it!!!

So onward and upward. I know that in past physio has hurt me more than helped but I am so desperate to get this pain stopped or at least not worse. I will do all they say and ice and heat or whatever. Not till May 7th but that's not too bad.

Okay off to get a bit more done! HUGS all have a super day!! Oh question if you leave a message on my page, can you see to type. not sure if this colour is too close to background colour. thanks! emoticon

    Hi Cindy .. Glad your doctor is taking good care of you ... I know how much it hurts my friend .. I have much the same problems .. I have blogged a yoga program that. You can do on your bed ... Start slowly and don't force yourself to do it all ..just take care .. Lots of veggies my friend, and I found a tablespoonful of the real apple cider vinegar from the health store really helps..take this each day. emoticon emoticon
    It will take time .. But if we can get some relief it's well worth it .. Much love Susie xx
