One more thing...
Tuesday, March 27, 2018
So, I have to go for an ultrasound later this week. I did call my doctor’s office yesterday morning about the pain I was experiencing (like she told me too)... and they got me in for an appointment yesterday afternoon. At this point she is uncertain what is causing the discomfort. She said to watch for a rash, as I am a prime candidate for shingles and due to the location of the pain, it is a vague possibility... but it is more likely to be something else. We will see. It was too late in the day yesterday to schedule the ultrasound, so the doctor’s office is supposed to schedule it and then call me this morning with the appointment time and date. And then I have a follow up appointment with the doctor in a week.
Next week I will be super busy with appointments. Generally, I have multiple appointments nearly every day next week. It is going to knock me out of my routine. Cooper and I both get cranky when that happens. Oh well, it is what it is... and it will keep me busy so I can’t spend as much time dwelling on the sad anniversary of the first. (I am looking for silver linings...)
I am trying not to whine about this, but I am feeling cranky and annoyed (pain... especially unidentified pain... does that to me) I will buck up and deal with it... ya’ll just get the brunt of my cranky self... because I feel like this is a safe place to vent.
I am cutting back, just a tiny bit on my exercise this week while I wait for word about the source of the pain... and besides it makes it less enjoyable to be quite so active when I hurt this way... (whine, whine, whine...). lol
Since, I seem to be unable to get over my cranky self this morning I will end this here... with the thought that I shared with a friend that even when we don’t feel beautiful to ourselves, if we have a good attitude we are generally perceived as lovely by others... now, I am going to go adjust my attitude by listening to some fun music, taking a walk, and when I get back I will give my dog his morning belly rubs!
