I had my doctor appointment a few days ago. It's now been over 5 weeks since the original injury and I'm still having pain in my neck, scapula, shoulder and bicep with numbness and tingling going down my arm into my fingers. The doctor believes the source is my shoulder injury and not in my neck, and now, so do I. My lack of progress has gotten me a date with an MRI machine next week. From there, if it's like my past experiences, I will have to meet with a surgeon, set a date and get all the paperwork in order. I don't want to have surgery again but I can't live like this, either.
And to top it all off, I missed the bottom stair yesterday afternoon and rolled my ankle while tumbling to the concrete floor. I kept ice on it for hours last night but still today the top outside of my foot by my ankle is swollen and purple. And everything hurts today, like I fell onto a concrete floor yesterday. I'm getting too old for this shit.
And if that's not enough sunshine and lollipops for you, winter has made a comeback. We got snow and ice yesterday and last night. Not much, but it does seem like February again.
Now I should try to write something positive instead of just complaining. Sorry, I don't think I have it in me right now. There's always next time.
