You will face many defeats in life,
but never let yourself be defeated...
It's been almost three weeks now that I am living
with excruciating knee pain. It all began with the sound
of a pop, and before you knew it I was down. Hurt like
hell, but nothing compares to how it hurts right now.
After weeks of unbearable pain, I finally decided it was
time to get it checked out. I really thought I was having
a mayor blood clot. My leg all the way from the knee
down has no circulation and feels like lead. Yes, its
heavy and nothing helps with the pain.
I have to work at Almost Home. I am up and down
the steps several times a day, and yes during it all my knee
is swollen and every so often it pops and I go half way down,
but I have to work and no matter how much my knee
hurts, there is nothing I can do right now.
I finally gave in and went to the emergency room.
I woke up at 4 in the morning just so that I can be
done in time to get to work for 9am. After X-rays and
an ultrasound, I found out I had no blood clot. That was
definitely good news, but the pain has not gone away.
In fact today it hurts in a VERY, VERY bad way.
The X-rays showed that I have a pretty huge cyst in the
back of my knee. The remedy is draining the cyst or getting
a cortisone shot. The reality is that I have not had time as
yet to even call and make an appointment. Today I will
definitely try because the pain is pretty unbearable.
I don't have the luxury right now to not show up
at Almost Home. Our goal is to get it up and running
and in there, I do not have the time to be "sick"
To all a good day. Let's hope your day is better than the
ones I have been having most of this month. Time to take
a bunch of Tylenols and hope I get a little relief, because
today is going to be another busy day at Almost Home.
It might sound obvious but ups and downs of life are just part of life...
