I have an appointment with my VA primary care doctor, be the Lord Willing, tomorrow afternoon.

Monday, May 10, 2021

I made an appointment with my primary care doctor for tomorrow afternoon, I have had bouts of diarrhea since last Wednesday, and pain in my left hip.

Years ago, when my two children were both still using car seats, there was a Roadway truck double-parked in front of our house. I opened the driver's side door of our car to the back seat, to buckle in my son's car seat. I had already put our daughter in the back seat on the passenger's side of the car.

I heard the trucker start the truck and there was nowhere for me to go, I leaned in over my son in his car seat and thought I would be crushed between our car and the truck's passenger-side wheel. The truck driver never saw me. The front of the truck bent the back door forward and I screamed, "Jesus!" People heard me and opened up the front doors of their houses and looked. The truck drove past our car and the back door sprang shut (not all the way), pinning me against the door frame of the back seat. I still think it was a miracle that my leg was not cut off and that I was not squished.

The driver drove the truck down the street and turned around. I hobbled across the street and waved for him to stop and told him that he had hit my car. He didn't know anything about that, but I showed him my skinned leg, it didn't bleed. He called Roadway and they sent someone to our house to have me sign papers that I wouldn't sue them. They paid me, I think $250 to get the car door straightened out. It now opened wider than it ever had and it made it convenient to haul disabled people to church.

I don't think that is what is wrong with my hip because I still have a scar on my left leg between the knee and ankle where my leg was mashed against the door frame. I have been using a heating pad on my hip to get to sleep and when I sit watching TV.

I spent an hour on the heating pad today before I realized it wasn't plugged in. I doubt the doctor can fix that problem, LOL! My left knee and left ankle have also been hurting.

All I can say is that I haven't been getting much sleep and that I am hurting.

    Thank you all for your prayers. My husband went out today and bought Voltaren gel. I haven't used it yet, it has side effects that conflict with health conditions that I have, so I will use it before bed when I want to sleep through the night.

    I believe that the trucker & his company got off easy all those years ago!

    I have lifted prayer asking our Abba's will for you in all areas! emoticon

    God bless!

    Not much happened today with the VA doctor, She examined me and addressed every concern that I had written down. I have to return a stool sample which will be tested to see what caused the diarrhea for so long and I am to get some gel to rub on my hip. I hope it is an over-the-counter medication because I didn't get a prescription for anything. I will have to pray more until God rids me of the pain and discomfort.
