Well, it isn't very dramatic. I have Tendonosis. which is like Tendonitis but long term, more chronic type of thing.
It does hurt, and lately it has been hurting quite a bit. She showed me the pockets of fluid that are surrounding my tendon and the way my tendon has gotten to be very thick compared to a normal tendon. It was all very interesting, and i wish it had not been so early in the morning, because I barely recall any of it!
According to the Podiatrist though, Physical therapy three times weekly should cure it. With my work schedule we shall see if I can do PT 3 times a week each week, but I hope that it does provide some relief.
I've been mostly walking these days about 2-3 miles with the dog, which takes a longer time, as he really loves to stop and smell everything….
In addition to the dog, I have adopted a habit of pickup up a plastic bag and actually collecting the trash on the side of the road. Mostly it's bottles, cans, and advertising papers. While I will never get a medal for this, I find it oddly satisfying, and I do feel as if i am helping the community.
I find that I do miss running, in an odd abstract sort of way. It's always there….waiting for me to try to return to it.
Other than the ankle things are better.
After that horrific day at work, the Physicians started to complain…and as always, the situation was suddenly addressed a bit more vigorously. I keep getting high praises from the physicians as well as most of the nurses I work with.
I do still have that one application in for the Infection Prevention/Control job. I'd love to get it, but doubt I have much of a chance.
The weather is finally HOT here in the 80's each day as is should be.
My only big concern here is that my taxes are turning out to be a bit of a nightmare. they are so far fairly standard, all except I seem to have lost a form regarding my dividend income (its not big but it does change my taxes each year) and the hideous house sale. I seem to have simply trashed the documents I needed to report that!.
So we shall see what occurs. I am hoping a lot of places are disregarding Easter Monday and will be at work.
Once the taxes are done, I think I shall feel a great deal better.
