Shoulder doc appointment and other things
My med alarm went off at 0730 but I went back to sleep after turning it off. I woke up two hours later with my bladder threatening to explode so used the bathroom. I then took my meds and went back to sleep. My AC was delivered around the time I woke up at 1230. I am glad I didn’t have to sign for it like I did the last time I bought one. I made an iced coffee so I could drink it quick as my cab would be coming in a half hour. I dressed quickly and made sure I had my vouchers on me.
I got to the doctor’s office early. I had to have an x-ray done and there was no waiting. I was called fairly quickly. Positioning my shoulder the way they wanted it hurt. I had to wait almost 45 mins to see the doc. I checked messages on my phone. Twitter still had a lot to say about the shooting yesterday or the day before in Texas. It has turned my stomach so much learning that babies died. I got off Twitter and just put the phone in my pocket. I didn’t want to see social media at all. I just waited in the quiet waiting room.
I saw the doc and told him what was wrong. He showed me my x-ray and said it looked really good. He then examined where I was hurt and determined I had inflammation in my rotator cuff and bicep. I got a cortisone shot in my shoulder and would have to see his associate to get another in my bicep. It would have to be done by ultrasound. Fun. The shot burned but it didn’t last but I was sore. I am not to do anything the next few days so that the medicine can do its job. I see him in two months to see where I am at and if further treatment is necessary.
I had wanted to go to Starbucks after my appointment but I wasn’t thinking about it and just wanted to go home so when I called the cab, it came fairly quickly so I couldn’t cross the street to get a drink. I came home after the driver took every street in my town. I was hungry as I hadn’t eaten anything all day. I just had the iced coffee and that was it. I had a bowl of cereal and then some cookies with another cup of coffee. I sat with my mother who was obviously feeling better than she was in the morning. I discussed dinner with my mother and decided it was going to be lentil soup with pasta. She made the lentil soup yesterday and it was good.
My pelvic floor muscles toner kit is coming with today’s mail so I plan on using that tonight. I hope it helps. I can do it while listening to the game. They are back at Fenway so I will listen earlier. They kicked the white sox to the curb last night. We are playing the Orioles tonight. These pesky birds are sometimes hard to beat despite their losing record.
