Wearing purple….channeling future black and blue marks

For some reason I put a purple shirt on today.

Oh yeah…then I remembered, I am going for my orthopaedic visit this morning and can envision the needle that will be in my future: I admit it’s not something I am looking forward to. I had gone for the x-ray last night to find out the good news that my hip is not broken.**big shocker there-NOT** However, the radiologist read the film and pronounced bony deterioration.

Translated? I missed the bullet with this fall, but have got to quit falling, NOW.

This just reaffirms the statement I made in a prior post.

“Old age is not for sissies.”

**sigh**

Curse or blessing?

I have a Tuesday appointment with the doctor to be seen with my bum hip.I have to have an x-ray of the hip to take with me.

In the meantime, I have read over the possible diagnosis, according to my buddy Matt, who was my Physician’s Assistant**sorry Kate** when I got my knees done.As I am not crawling now, I am assuming my hip is not fractured**fingers crossed** but merely bursitis.

Arrgh.

Two inch needle, spray to freeze area, insert steroid-I remember the drill oh so well from my knee days.Here’s hoping the hip fairs a little better.
