Its been a while since my last post I know, kids went back to school on Monday last week, so after drop off I went to visit a friend I hadn't seen for a while. She isn't feeling too good just now so I am sending her big hugs. She noticed something about my ankle (I have had swollen ankles since my sister was here in Feb) I didn't think too much of it till I got home and it had become even more swollen and angry and hot. I have had this before - twice to be precise - so called the guard dogs on reception at the Docs surgery. I forced them into giving me an emergency appointment and by the time I got there the redness had got worse. I knew it was cellulitis but had to make sure. I wasn't wrong so that set of my whole week. It kind of went like this - intra muscular injection in my butt - ouch! not sure what was worse, my ankle or injection site - not allowed to do anything and keep my feet UP. Tues, Dr first thing, yet another injection in the same side of butt (it gave me a dead leg so at least getting it in the left side meant I could drive as both vehicles are automatics) back home and do nothing - keep my feet UP - getting bored by this stage. Wednesday was ANZAC day so did little and kept an eye on my foot - if it got worse I was to go straight to the hospital. Thursday first thing see another Dr as mine doesn't work the end of the week...another injection - suggestion was my thigh so did that...it hurt really bad this time and I got a jelly leg by the time I got home - guess what - do nothing feet UP....bored bored bored. Friday yet another Dr first thing.....and yep you guessed it another injection - oh you should see the bruise this time (I might still take a photo as it is incredible) so I had a sore butt still a sore thigh and my ankle still hurts. Saturday netball starts - I had to leave early as another Dr's appointment was called for...I didn't need an injection but I still hurt - it is clearing but not as fast as it has in the past (I have had it 2 times before - same place and these only occurred after a single redback spider bite on the sole of my foot ) This week, well, I am bored with keeping my feet up, though I hurt so will be going and doing just that after this post. As a consequence I haven't felt very creative.
As a wee treat David took me to Ikea this morning and I got a "bookcase" to go in front of the window to hold more of my stuff. It will lay on its side and I got 4 cubes to hold stuff, the other openings will hold more interesting stuff which is a bit more photogenic LOL. That should be the end for my purchases just now but David did see a set of drawers which he said would be ideal for my stamps....and it would go nicely under my sewing table. I surprisingly didn't prompt him with this, I had been eyeing them off in the catalogue so was quite pleased when he saw the potential LOL.
