Thanks you all so much for the “hugs”. I’m definitely having a very hard time and I appreciate everyone just being their for me and offering as much advice as you can with how much you know about the situation. I’m glad some of you can relate to certain things. It’s just re-assuring I’m just going through a rough patch.
Moving on… Today was pretty ordinary with a doctor’s appointment thrown into the mix. I woke up and did some chest/tricep workout with a couple minutes walking on the treadmill while watching Kelly & Michael‘s opening number.
To be honest, I love waking up to them every morning. When I swim, I wake up super early just to make sure I can go, swim, change, and get back in time to watch the show. I just love it. Their witty remarks, sarcasm, and the daily Trivia question just start my morning on a good note. Plus, Shia Labeouf was on today. Mmm.
Afterwards, I went on a little trip with Elmo to Dunkin’ Donuts and hung around the rest of the day reading blogs and such. I was really nervous about my doctor’s appointment and kept telling Elmo how nervous I was about it. This is his, “Mommy, please just put the car in gear so I can put my head out the window and let the 50MPH winds give me whiplash” face.
My doctor’s appointment was… Well, nothing different from any other appointment. It’s weird. It feels like my knee is so full of fluid because it gets stiff and I start limping and it’s just a mess; however, when he went to drain it… Only 3ml of fluid came out of it. I’m just confused as to why my knee feels so horrible. He gave me a new ibuprofen and I asked him where I go from here. He said I was tested for everything and he really does not know what’s going on with it. I just don’t get it. I can lay on ice foooorever but the swelling does not go down at all. Oof…
I’m kind of wondering if acupuncture or any other “alternative” medicine would work for it. Has anyone tried acupuncture for a certain injury – or anything, really? Please post any experiences and whether or not it helped you! I would really appreciate it!
I’m so thankful for this little guy. So thankful.
Do you watch Kelly & Michael?
I will make sure I get to sit down and watch at least the beginning segment. Love it.
Did you ever get acupuncture?? Did it work?! Tell me!
