Doctor update

Finally I hear back from the doctor!

I went to see her this morning. I woke up at 3:30am, did Lyft for 2 hours (until my Advil wore off and it hurt to drive), then came by my house to eat breakfast, and drove over to meet my new doctor.

She’s great. Really. She didn’t tell me to quit smoking or lose 10 pounds, she refilled my asthma inhaler, and she sent me for an X-ray of my ribs.

So I went and got the X-ray. See me in my beautiful gown! Lol

Then I wait. And wait. Finally at 4pm, her office calls me to tell me that there are NO cracks! Yay!!! She said I can go get a CT scan with contrast if I want to double check my spleen, stomach, intestines, and kidneys but she thinks my rib is just bruised and I just need to take it easy for a few weeks and will be okay. I declined the CT because of cost ($3000 at their imaging place and $350 at the free [HA] clinic). Just no exercise until I heal. There goes that challenge I was doing this month!

I am just so happy that I didn’t injure myself more than I did! Woo hoo!

I am letting my son skip karate tonight to go to the church laser tag night. He has his first belt test next weekend so he has to practice but I am not making him do it tonight. He also read the school book and said he really liked it which impressed me. Now he just has 4 school assignments to go along with it to do. School starts in less than 2 weeks so he really needs to get moving on that!

Amber was being cute at 4am ready to go for a walk (that would be a hell no – I don’t leave my house until 5am no matter what).

I also did my pictures a little late for the end of July and then did a comparison photo.

I also found a couple of quotes from Instagram to share. I hope y’all have a great day!

  1. Ive found Naproxen (Aleve) absolutely brilliant at relieving sore rib pain. I’m a master at busting ribs thanks to the rotten osteoporosis I have. The pain is miserable so I truly sympathize. Be sure to practice deep breathing at least hourly because although it hurts like a brute, you’re very susceptible to chest infections, bronchitis etc with rib pain due to shallow breathing. Feel better soon 😊
