The first day of Spring is officially March 20, but someone forgot to alert our neighborhood. It was 78’ yesterday, and just the nicest little breeze which I couldn’t feel at all from the emergency room.
The day started out just fine: well, sort of; I got up and my leg hurt. I had gone to bed with it hurting as well but normally, those of us with RA just figure a good night’s rest cures a lot of stuff.
It didn’t. The area of my leg that hurt was red and swollen and hot to touch. And it appeared to have a bump in it. My son the nurse said it could be a blood clot, I needed to have someone check it.
I figured, yeah maybe run up to the Urgent care and have it looked at.
Now the urgent care is next to the hospital, and when the nurse listened to the list of symptoms, she put me in a wheelchair and wheeled me down to the ER because that’s where they can do tests. They weren’t equipped she told me if I was on my way to a stroke. This did not cheer my disposition.
For the next three hours, they did tests. Ultrasounds, blood tests, you know the drill. And they finally came up with the idea I had a really badly sprained right calf muscle and I needed to sit with it elevated and iced for fifteen minutes out of every hour.
Right. And run a farm, write books, take care of a fifteen-month-old and I never got to go outside because once they tell you there is something wrong, and although it’s not a clot as such, tt becomes serious. Once they do that, you think you’re sick.
So today, I got up. Rewrapped my leg in the ace bandage and went out to clean the yard and walk the baby and get the dogs out of the barn and into their summer pens. They’re out there absolutely delirious with happy. The mama dogs are coming along well in their pregnancy. We expect babies by Easter. The CBW is thoroughly worn out, giving me a chance to write and let you know what’s going on.
