My shoulder

So right after the MRI, I was going to spend the 3 day weekend at a friends house by a lake 3 hours away. I was actually helping her move, and then we (and another friends) were going to a Singles dance at a church nearby. I was to drive home on Monday. I couldn't help much, because of my shoulder, but she needed my car to load stuff into! and it was supposed to be a fun gals weekend. Sigh. I got that truly horrible version of the flu! I couldn't drive home until Thursday! Then I only worked 4 hours on Friday and went home and back to bed. Crazy. The dr. called me Wednesday to tell me the MRI results, but I was too sick to understand, and when I finally made it home, the illness lingered on (actually still lingering) but I went to see the dr. on Monday. Basically, I have a bit of arthritis and no muscle between the two bones, so they hit. And the other muscle up there worked double time to compensate and got very inflamed. So he gave me a cortizone shot, told me to take advil twice a day and go to Physical therapy three times a week for a month, to start! Yikes, that's a lot of sick time, especially after I used 28 hours for the flu! Luckily (ok thanks to God really) I have 380 sick hours built up and I can do the PT at 4:30 to 5:30 so I won't miss too much work (or have to come back to work after PT)

117 days til Indonesia!

God bless

Oh, my Misty. Sorry to not have popped in sooner to see how things were going. I'll keep you in my prayers. Hope things go better for you.

Much love from Nebraska!
