the most dreaded day

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

today i went to the doctor to get the results of my mri, it is a torn miniscus, a torn tendon, however she said the mri showed it to be slight.
well, it hasnt felt slight i can tell you that.
today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks i left the house without my cane.
and would not have done that, had bill not been with me.
i go to the orthopedic surgeon on monday, to see what wild and crazy, painful procedure he has in store for me.
but i fear tomorrow is going to be an even more fearful and painful day.
it is the day i go back to my doctor that monitors my weight plan.
i last saw him on April 27th, and he called me a player, i thought he was referring to my love life, but he said he meant i knew how to play the weight loss game.
boy was he ever wrong.
i guess i just had a streak of good luck before i went to him, and its been all downhill since.
i havent lost any of the 6 to 8 lbs he recommended for me, and that was for 1 month, due to a death of a dear loved one, i had to reschedule my last appt and so now its been 7 weeks.
i have gained at least 3lbs back of what i had lost.
i havent walked since june 3rd.
and when i say walked, i dont mean, exercised walking, i mean, walked, well, i have hopped on one foot, hobbled, practically crawled or scooted at times...on crutches for the first week and then a cane.
i havent done much of any kind of exercise.
and i havent been counting calories like i should.
depression overtook me with this injury and dealing with grief of my lost loved one.
i am only human and if he doesnt understand this then i guess he isnt.
will let everyone know how it goes.

    My condolences for your loss, first of all. Second, as for your injury, I can imagine how much pain that would be. Don't worry about exercising for now and just focus on keeping off your feet as much as possible and healing. You'll be back in shape in no time for sure. Good luck.
