I know I've been absent for over a week now..
That dratted Arthur Ritis reared his ugly head Into my life again..
His has been a royal PAIN in the Arse..
literally and figuratively..
I have been dealing with excruciating pain in my left hip joint..
(this turned out to be an acute Bursitis attack)...
It felt like a red hot boil ready to erupt!!
My physician injected the hip which has brought some relief..
down from the excruciating level ..
to the TOLERABLE level..
yesterday was X-rays..
today the results indicated normal degeneration.
but possibly an MRI to see if I have a disc problem in the lower back..
which could be radiating pain..
what I do know..
My hip hurts continually during the waking hours..
and sleepless nites are becoming a norm for me..
the damp, cold, rainy , dreariness has not helped my spirits in the least!
am now on Prednisone..again ..
which makes it tolerable..
I do NOT like being inactive..
nor being curtailed by this predator..
Today, am on my way out the door to visit a fitness center nearby..
which offers Silver Sneakers fitness program..
this program is one of my "Wellness Benefits" from my insurance..
I really want to put the JOY of living back into my life..
by being able to move..
and doing what I do best :Photography!!
Will update when I return!!
thanks for being so understanding..
I love you all!!
warmest sandy hugs..
