I still haven't gotten an appointment with a physical therapist yet. It's been a week since I saw my primary care physician and had xrays. Hopefully today I'll get it straightened out. You really have to stay on these people and be your own medical advocate. My physician has approved PT but as of yesterday afternoon no one from her office faxed the "permission" to the PT office. Yes, I have to have an order from a medical doctor before my insurance will cover the visits.
The good news is I'm becoming more and more active with less and less pain. I think it's due to the Celebrex. I did class on Tuesday and survived, and 4.5 miles on the treadmill yesterday (broken up into a couple sessions) and survived. I'm stiff this morning but not in great pain. Of course 4.5 miles on the treadmill is NOT equivalent to 6-8 miles of hiking, much of it uphill or up and down stone steps. I am still not 100%.
Tonight we are working at our county fair. My husband is a Master Gardener and one of their service projects is to man the two buildings that house the entries for baking, canning, sewing, home crafts, best fruits/vegetables, flowers, etc. It's a real "old fashioned" county fair with pigs, cows, goats, chickens, 4H projects, rides, games, and lots and lots of food!
As part of our 4-hour shift we get a dinner ticket. Of course, fair food is -- fair food. NOT healthy!
Usually I agonize over what I'm going to eat, and either eat nothing (take a Subway or just don't eat) or go berserk and eat anything I want!
Tonight I think I'll compromise: how about a hamburger minus the top bun, and then bring cut-up fruit and baby carrots? I think that will work.
So that's all the news from my corner of the universe. Time to get ready for class -- Power Pump and then Light Yoga.
Have a Sparkalicious Day!
