Hi gals! Just reading how you all are managing the snow and ice! I have some of those rubber, stretchy wire things that fit over my shoes when I go out doors on the ice! They remind me of tire-chains, Hah! But I also throw down an old towel, right outside the door, when the ice is there.... Seems to be easier to step on, rather than the rubber frozen mat!
Just be careful! My leg just plain hurts in this cold weather! The one that I fell on and broke, and which I got a rod and a few screws to hold it in my femur.... It doesn't bother me usually, but lately I take either a couple Aleve, or extra strength Tylenol, and sit on a little warming bag that I made. I make a bag, by folding a wash-cloth in half, then fill with rice, and maybe dried Lavender, and sew the end up! Then put it in the Microwave for 2 minutes, and put it wherever it hurts.
It's either shin-splints.... or the back of my upper leg, like what runners get? What is that? HAMSTRING!! Geez, I had to look it up! I have elasticized wraps for that, but they work down my leg, while walking....
Anyway, it HAS to be the weather causing all this trouble. Oh, wah-wah!....
Got my annual Mammogram yesterday.... Doesn't it always scare you, waiting to hear? She called back, and everything looks GOOD!!! And it's been over 10 years for me!!! I had the gals at the center laughing.... One of the questions is "Are you pregnant"? I looked at my Husband, and said "they want to know if I am pregnant!"..... He looked at me and asked, "WELL, ARE YOU?:…. And the gals all laughed! I said, "Well, at 82, that would REALLY be a Christmas Miracle!".... I SHOULD have told, him, I thought you were using protection!"
Jackie, take care of your arm! I know it is getting better, but it's also easier to hurt again now! You still have to baby it!
Don't walk ahead of me, I might not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not want to lead. Just walk beside me & be my friend.
