2019

With the exception of the local idiots setting off fire works, it was a pleasant New Years,considering we were both sick. Jim actually went to urgent care to get my ever popular “acute bronchitis-sinusitis” diagnosis. Who says-you don’t share love and germs..lol.

Hope you have a wonderful 2019! Remember to stop in early and often to catch up with the blog.

Here’s some color from 2018.Enjoy!

Happy Friday the 13th

Here’s Nurse Kasia.

Nurse ,you say.

Yes….since yesterday afternoon, when I walked 4 houses down the street, going up to thank someone being nice and giving me a pleasant surprise. So I walked up 3 of 4 stairs with no railing. When I stepped on the 3rd step with my left foot, my ankle twisted. Fortunately , Jim was near-by.

I went to urgent care, and was diagnosed with a bad sprain… until 5:45pm. The Physician’s Assistant called me to inform me that the doctor at the hospital read my x-ray and I have an avulsion fracture in my left foot.

No anti- inflammatories, no booze… just a girl, her boot and some ice and Tylenol.

Swell…….

It lasted till the end …

…of 55.

We have a surgeon’s appointment in the area for me today, due to a fibroma grown in my forearm. This bastard is leaning on some nerves in my right arm, and the end result is my lack of sleep.

Tomorrow morning I have a 6 month appointment with the dentist.

Not too bad for the year to date. Two general practice visits, one surgical visit, two dermatology appointments**singing in best 12 days of Christmas voice** and one trip to urgent care….

I hesitate to talk it up, but we are a week short of one year of retirement, and I feel like I am spitting in God’s eye.I am hoping we can keep this up.

  

Itchy

Yesterday’s bug bites have really made me crazy.

Witch hazel has fallen by the wayside, and I even threw alcohol on it through last night. Today has me going for bigger guns: clear Calydryl on my leg, and I have  a sneaking suspicion I’ll probably have to take a Benedryl before bed tonight.

What is really weird is I seem to be courting a rash on my leg. I am pretty sure there’s no poison ivy, but I probably will spend some time on Web M.D. tonight.

Hope I won’t be sorry to surf the web, but hey… beats Urgent Care.
