Happy long weekend! 😀 My family is having our 1st BBQ for 2011 tonight – it’s such a sunny gorgeous day. I’m in charge of making a salad. Stay tune….I’ll post a picture later tonight.
Laser was hanging out with me this AM.
I’ve been going to physio for over 6 wks since my foot injury over 2 mths ago. We thought it was an Achilles injury until this week. My PT transferred me to a Sports Med Doctor – possibly a stress fracture on my heel bone. I immediately made an appt come Tuesday. I decided to see my family doctor yesterday to get a referral for x-ray/bone scan. I wanted to bring the x-ray results to the Sports doc on Tuesday.
Well, my family doc REFUSED to send me for an x-ray. He said I can’t get a fracture on my heel bone unless I had a huge fall or a car accident. I gave him a whole spew about getting localized pain on my bone & length of my injury. He was literally laughing at me when I suggested a bone scan (& he’s not a laughing type). He said it’s probably just an infection on my bone & prescribed a medication. Isn’t medication only for suppressing pain? There are side effects to all drugs. I don’t even take common pills like Tylenol. He told me to try it out for 2 wks & come back if it still hasn’t healed. WHAT?! 😡 I can’t wait another 2 wks. At that point, I had to leave before I lashed out. I walked back to my car & completely broke down…..thank goodness there were tissues. 😥
With blotchy eyes & a red face, I went to the grocery store afterward to get my salad ingredients for tonight. People probably thought I was insane. That’s okay. 😐 Either I was venting my stress or I drank too much coffee (~48 oz ! :eek:), I had a TERRIFIC swim last night!! 😀 I busted out 64 laps & it was at a wave pool which offered much more resistant.
Phew, it’s already such a long post. I haven’t even talked about the best part…..the Food! I’ve been addicted to several food combos lately as snacks/meals. Allow me to share them…..
