Yesterday Was A Mixed Bag.....

Monday, May 09, 2016

Yesterday, I had a wonderful Mother's Day! DD1 sent me a beautiful card and she called. I enjoyed talking to her. DD2 called and I got to talk to both her and our oldest GS. That was both entertaining and sweet. Hubby took me out for brunch. I had a veggie omelet that was delicious.It was such a beautiful day that we decided to take the three dogs for a walk around the block. That was when things went south fast.

Without thinking, I attempted the walk without my cane. I usually don't use my cane in the house. When we decided to take a walk, I just walked out of the house without the cane and never gave it a thought. I walked rather slowly behind hubby and the dogs. It was the first time for walking outside the house without it. We were almost back home when I stepped on a large pebble and wrenched my foot. Down I went. My hands are scraped and bruised. I scraped my right elbow and bruised it, my foot is super sore and I landed on my bad hip. I was so mad at myself and frustrated!

I was in agony for the rest of yesterday. I hardly slept last night but surprisingly enough, I felt a little better this morning. I needed to get my initial pre-op out of the way, so I was up and out by 8am. I finished the testing and was back home by 10am and went back to bed. Later, I went out to the store to get a few items. I crawled home and had to take pain medicine. I hate taking pain medication but in this case, it was an absolute must. Thank goodness I see my orthopedist this Wednesday and I am on the schedule for a hip replacement on May 27th. Undoubtedly, the trauma of the fall will accelerate the disease progression in that hip. I am afraid that between the hips and my spine, I will likely need to use a cane for the foreseeable future. I just want to get through all of this so I can get back into the water. I have been out of the water for over ten months and I really miss it. One step at a time!

    I'm so sorry you fell. Please, please..if you need the pain meds take them. I hate taking them too, and i only take one pill most days, in the afternoon when it gets so bad i cant deal. THERE IS NO SHAME IN TAKING THEM!!!
    I also understand about the cane. i forget mine sometimes, and regret it. and I have an intimate relationship with the ground..it likes me so much it is forever beckoning. I'm a bad mate, though..i dont like it so much!!!
    So glad part of your mothers day was wonderful!!!
