Today - my normal "luck" strikes again!!!
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
So I had two tests at the hospital today. Something is wrong with my right thumb - my dominant hand. I didn't do anything to it to cause the pain. It has been on/off for years. In May, I helped someone move, and now it is a lot worse. It hurts when I write and I can barely open things. I got an X-ray and saw a hand specialist who has no idea what is wrong! I was told to get 3 more tests done - 3 phase bone scan, MRI & EMG/Nerve test. I had a bone scan & an MRI today. The bone scan was fine although I am radioactive now woowoo! The technician asked me to stay away from small children & older people for the rest of the day! eek! So I had my MRI for my hand too.... 20 minutes in, the tech told me she was going to reboot the machine because of an error. I told myself in my head.... "I am going to have to come back another day..." 30 minutes later, she told me it still wasn't working! haha. $200 for this damn MRI! I can't believe the machine broke on me hahaha. Actually, I do believe it. Those things happen to me quite often. So anyways.. I have to go Friday night at 8:15 to get 9 more minutes of scans done. Damn! Oh well, I need it done! I just hope I don't have to deal with any insurance or co-pay BS because I will be going a second day.
I could be miserable with what happened, or I can just move on and keep going. I choose laughing at the situation over being mad about it. That stuff happens all the time to random people! Of course it would happen to me also =)
Anyways, while I waited around in the machine for that extra time, I was thinking about the 5% Fall Challenge. I still need to change my eating habits if I want to get this goal. Last night I had some tea instead of a big snack before bed. It really helped me out!
The countdown to my next 5K started! 10 days! My legs have still been so sore. I have been soaking them twice daily now! I have Zumba tomorrow night, and I am going no matter what! YES! Zumba tomorrow! I never thought I would be so excited to exercise. I still don't have the correct shoes. Bummer. I went on my lunch break a few times over the past 2 weeks, but I had no luck. Since I knew I would be gone most of the day for the tests, I have been working through lunches this week. Hopefully I find shoes this weekend or next week! I still need Zumba shoes & running shoes! They are expensive, but I definitely need both pairs. My Mom laughed at me when I said I needed running shoes. She said all sneakers are the same. I didn't feel like arguing with her!
2 more work days for me & then the weekend! Hopefully everyone has a great rest of the week! Keep Sparking! and stay away, because I am radioactive! WoOoOoOoO!!!
