A Rough Week
Well, last week was a rough week for me. I had a medical procedure on Tuesday that I had to prep for beginning on Monday. I got breakfast Monday morning, but nothing after that until late afternoon on Tuesday. Before that, I only thought I knew what it felt like to be hungry.
Once I was finally able to eat, things were all better.
On Wednesday, I was finally able to go to church (We had been in revival meetings beginning on Monday). It was rainy. I stepped on our makeshift sidewalk in my already slick, but now partially mud-covered boots. My leg went one way, the rest of me went the other way.
Instinctually, I tried catching myself with my left arm extended. I extended it too far. In fact, I hyper-extended my elbow. I considered linking to a video to demonstrate what I mean, but I’ll spare you. If you really want to watch one, just search for it on youtube. It stayed very stiff and very sore for a couple of days, but it’s good now. I still feel a little sore, but the stiffness is gone, and I can generally do whatever I want now.
As a part of the doctor visit on Tuesday, I was given a prescription medication. I wanted to try to use it in the mornings, so I tried it for a couple of days – Friday & Saturday. It has warnings about possible dizziness and drowsiness… I only slightly felt those symptoms, but it was enough to stop taking it in the mornings. All I felt like doing was napping (which my wife says I feel like doing too much of anyway).
So now that I’m past all of that, I’m actually feeling pretty good today. Even though it’s Monday. I’m looking forward to a short work week and a great Thanksgiving!
