I’ve been to the doctor this morning to check my feet and my right shoulder. It’s awful enough to drive in a storm as it is and it’s even worse when it suddenly starts to snow heavily and the sights is minimal at the same time as the wind does its best to push the car of the road :-) The snow fall only lasted for a few minutes though and was later replaced by rain. I thought they would have me waiting for quite some time because nothing much happened during the time I was waiting but just as the clock was 9:15 they let me in, almost on the second I had the appointment :-)
We started with my feet and she didn’t like what she could feel at all and said that I really need insoles and gave me a referral to the orthopedist. I don’t even need to make an appointment, I’ll just go there when I can and they’ll do them for me :-) I wish it was that simple all the time when going to the doctors :-) After that she took a look at my shoulder.
That shoulder problems has nothing to do with any rheumatic disease, I’m just a bit worn out I guess :-) She then gave me a syringe with cortisone and local anesthetic but I can’t even pretend that the local anesthetic helped much :-) It hurts like h… when they give that anyway :-) It did remove the pain after for a few minutes though, it gave up just as I was calling work to say I wouldn’t come in today. He couldn’t have missed that the pain returned just that second :-) I’ll go tomorrow though but the doctor thought that since I work with heavy lifting and use my arms a lot it would be better to rest the shoulder today (it does feel much better already even if it still hurts a little).
I drove to the vet who is very close to my doctor and got a prescription for Orvar and Hector. Then I went back to where the doctor is because there’s also a pharmacy there. That didn’t take long so I drove to a store and bought some fire logs and after that I thought I would buy myself the annual hamburger with fries, they didn’t, unfortunately open until 11am and I really didn’t want to wait half an hour just to get a hamburger, so I drove home instead.
None of the dogs heard me arriving because tractor passed by just when I came close to the garage. I found both the old boys in the dog house to my big surprise! and they were so surprised when I came home early that they first didn’t understand that they could get out and go inside the cottage, they just stood there watching me :-) :-) :-) We managed to take a walk before the rain arrived and now it’s just pouring down outside. I’ll put more fire logs in the stove and then I think I’ll take a small nap.
Have a great day!
