When I started this blog in August, I certainly did not expect the shitstorm that has rained down on my family ever since. Isn’t that always the way? I feel sad that I have had little energy to write, let alone make projects. Some day I will get better.
This week, I had an MRI and X-rays of my shoulder, which has been hurting since April. I went to my doctor in June and then to physical therapy, but it didn’t help. She recommended an MRI way back in August, but I asked instead to be referred to a joint specialist. Little did I know it would take until Thanksgiving to get in. And of course, the first thing he did was send me for the MRI.
Also this week, I finally decided I need to go back to the doctor because my “cold” is not getting better, even after two rounds of antibiotics. They are sending me to see an Ear, Nose, Throat specialist and want a CT scan of my sinuses.
Put this together with the back brace we bought for my son earlier in the month, and we are having the Most Expensive December on Earth. Thank goodness for health insurance.
Here is a picture of my dog because it makes me happy and reminds me to be grateful for the little things.
I think I might also have to invest in shitstorm gutters and hip boots.
