The birds are so sweet to watch, as the grow so quickly.
I had a rather different day on Friday. Normal school day was shortened due to a teacher having a doctor appt, so a late class was able to be done right after home room. I took advantage of this to run to Urgent Care to be tested for a UTI. I had minimal discomfort but tell tale super cloudy urine made me check it out. Sure enough, I'm now on Macrobid for 7 days.
All my friends have heard me complain about a pain in the right cheek of my butt. It started way back when I did that foolish 30 day sit up/crunch/leg lift challenge, the leg lifts were causing an issue and I continued with the other exercises but quit the leg lifts. I thought it was muscular pain, everyone I spoke with thought the same. I had been stretching, using the foam roller, and seeing my chiropractor muscle therapist. Varying thoughts on what muscle I injured, but it was over 3 months ago and any muscle injury should have healed. SO after Urgent Care for the UTI, and after lunch, I ran to our walk in orthopaedics clinic, Bone & Joint. I went there because I really didn't know where else to start. Long story short, they took x-rays that show my hamstring muscle tore off a piece of bone - not sure from the hip or the pelvis (she may have told me and I just blanked out when she was showing me the x-ray). I need to get an MRI, and after that I'll be seeing a sports medicine specialist who is their hip guy. Google indicates it might be a hamstring avulsion that took a piece of bone. I know ...stop using Dr. Google, but most of what I read indicates surgery to repair it, 3-6 month recovery, a hip brace to immobilize, and on & on (surgery site is the fold under your butt cheek). Text briefly w stepson (gastro Dr) who said he read sometimes they try to fix it with bed rest first. After staying indoors and isolating for over a year for covid, the thought of bed rest for weeks makes me ill. And all I thought was maybe I'd get a shot of cortisone in the keester! That's my vent for the day.
It was ok weather yesterday, cooler without a lot of sun. When I came back from ortho appt, both my grand niece and partner were in the pool. I don't know how she talked him into it, the water was warmer than the air (82 vs 69). Today we had some rain before I got up, but still cloudy and only 61. Forecast calls for rain Sunday and Monday too. Our 90+ degree days are gone, highs in the 70's. Enjoy your weekend!
