I've been back at work 3 times now, and I'm so happy to be back. Everyone is so supportive and SO nice. Everyone keeps telling me how great I look. My skin looks healthier, I've gained some weight, and everything just seems to be falling into place. And, obviously, ain't nothing wrong with getting compliments a million times a day! :)
Next, I slipped and fell on Saturday. I was in my house walking through the dining room (tiled floor) and I wiped out. I didn't know that my mom had just mopped the floor and was in the kitchen mopping THAT floor. I started to slide, but my instincts told me that if I didn't act quick, I was going to slide into "the splits"...and I DEFINITELY did NOT want that! So I caught myself and quickly positioned my body so that I would fall on my but and not in the splits. When I fell, I hurt my right knee, right ankle, and my right hip a little bit. It was quite painful, but I put on a brave face for Mom. I've been limping around the house for the last few days. Today was the first day that it actually started to feel better, so I'm optimistic that there wasn't any major damage. Nonetheless, to be on the safe side, I'm going to get an x-ray of my right knee and right ankle tomorrow. If I didn't have a rheumatology appointment tomorrow, I probably wouldn't even get the x-ray.
So yes, I have a rheumatology appointment tomorrow! Speaking of which, I had better write down a list of my medications. They always ask me and catch me off guard because I cannot remember them off the top of my head...especially with all of the new and different medications that I'm currently on.
So there's the update! If there are any developments with my rheumy appointment tomorrow or with my x-rays. of course I'll report back! :)
