So I get on here today thinking I might possibly think of something to share about beads or glass--and i "got nuttin". I haven't been working on anything and I can't think of any past projects that I might Razzle dazzle you with. So--I guess I'll tell you about my "itis" Tuesday morning I woke up to pain in my upper left thigh..Not just Pain--But excruciating pain. My first thought was that I tore or sprained something. I went on about my morning and went outside to feed the animals. When I got back to the house I couldn't get up the stairs. Every time I tried to lift my foot that 6 inches or bear weight on it so I could lift my other foot the pain would just about drop me. I have a pretty high threshold for pain so I knew it wasn't something I could just hope got better. So I went to the ER. Their first thought was that I had a Blot Clot--Off to ultrasound--Nope--Not a blod clot. Then the Dr. starts talking about MRSA--Okay-- Um _I watch TV--isn't that the Flesh eating diesese? So they stick a Needle in the painful area and withdraw fluid--Nope --Not MRSA...After a few other Physical tests they decide that I have Trochanteric Bursitis..Inflammation of The Bursa Sac Between my femur bone and the muscle. Who would have ever thought that could be so painful.
The Solution-- a Cortisone shot up next to the bone in the Bursa--Okay-- I can handle shots..Of course I have never had a shot before that required a "preshot" to prevent the other shot from hurting as much..The shot hurt--Not as much as I was expecting..but it hurt...Afterwards it was kind of like being kicked by a mule.. So they give me a Prescription for swelling-and one for pain and send me home to "stay off it"..well gee,,,sitting hurts, laying down hurts, and standing around on one foot is for the birds...Ha ha--Get it? Hopefully by tomorrow the Cortisone will have kicked in and started working...If not-- I get to go back and let them poke me some more... Just so you know No mortality is associated with this particular "itis" I feel like it but its not...Night before last I woke up in such pain that I wished that they had amputated my leg. I woke up and I couldn't move. I finally managed to roll out on the floor and was crawling to where I had left the pain pills..LOL--I had visions of drug addicts in my head..I have never wanted a pill so bad in my life..This from a person who will barely take an aspirin.
