So remember how you guys have to be incredibly sick of reading about my medical drama over the last few months? Here's a new and exciting chapter!
That bruise is from a nurse attempting to start an IV on Friday night at the ER. Although it looks like she did this with a sledgehammer of some sort, I think it was just a normal needle. It turns out I have a disc problem in my back and a pinched nerve. Fun fun!
One of the doctors who examined me in the seven hours we were there started moving my legs around checking for other issues. I told him I was embarrassed that my legs were so hairy. He said, "You should see some of the people we get in here. As long as you're potty trained and don't have body lice, I'm okay with it." HOW IS ANYONE IN THE MEDICAL FIELD? Better people than me, that much is for sure.
So, anyway, I'm on drugs and scheduled for physical therapy. The last few months have been such a bummer. I never have any kind of health problem. I went years and years without taking even ibuprofen and now I'm like the poster child for ER visits. It makes me realize that I can't take my health for granted anymore and that eventually, when I can walk for more than half a block without collapsing in pain, I have to work out and get healthy to avoid all this crap happening again and again and again.
This has to be so entertaining to read. Sorry, people! Hopefully something entertaining will happen soon.
Even Cooper is mournful about this new development.
