I really cannot believe how quickly the days and months are passing by.... Hmmmmmm
I hope you have all had a wonderful day, filled with happiness and smiles?
Today I was woken by pain...oh my! Horrendous pain... In my left leg. I was doing so well, taking things easy, slowly pottering around the house on my crutches. Then a set back.. Pain....
I don't cope at all with pain... I could not move my leg, it was terrible. As its Saturday our doctors surgery was closed, so jon rang the 111 service, it's a kind of medical helpline. I was passed onto a doctor and they wanted to call an ambulance for me to go to hospital. Well I was having none of that!! Omg no I was not going back there!!! So instead they sent out a paramedic car so someone could take a look at me.
The paramedic arrived, hmmmm just as I was screaming with pain, oh it was terrible.. The slightest movement and it really really hurt. But the funny thing was, it was not my knee... It was my leg! I thought it might of been the small vein blood clots... Oh they cause a lot of pain. And since coming out of hospital I had not been given then blood thinning injections to help them... So this was my thoughts. The paramedic listened and kind of agreed with me... I was told to take all my meds I could to the maximum doses.. Now normally the amounts I took I should of been snoring my head off as they are really strong medications. Instead I was wide awake and in a lot of pain and discomfort!
The paramedic stayed a good while making sure I was ok.. I told her I did not want to go to hospital and she understood my reasons. I agreed to take the maximum of my meds today and Sunday and if I was still in a horrendous amount of pain and discomfort Sunday afternoon she told me to dial 999 for an ambulance to take me to hospital so they could look into it.
So I am writing this dosed up... Hmmmm I have never ever taken this amount of meds before, I find it scary, but was reassured it was safe to. They have relieved a small amount of pain, I am not really sure how my night is going to be?
I have spent the whole day in my bed! How awful is that? I just am in too much pain to move... I am so fed up and sad...let me just.... Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhh!!! Better!
Do you know I am so fed up with my knee... If I could disown it I would! I have had nothing but bad luck this year, why me??? All I want is to get better and walk on my leg again... Who knows when that is going to happen??
So for me to be distracted, I picked up some stitching today! And oh it's helped... I am stitching a lot slower than usual, as the pain made me stop a few times. But it's a good distraction :)
Jon gave me a lovely Valentine's gift so I thought I would start that, as it made me smile knowing he bought it for me :)
Here this one....
So I started earlier... I am stitching on 32 count Belfast raw linen, using all the wonderful Weeks Dye Works threads he bought for me :)
Ready to start...
Here is what I have done so far...
I am sorry if you are not happy with me 'moaning' or chatting about my knee... What can I say?? Sorry... This is me right now. I am so grateful of the lovely friends I have who pop in on my blog to say hi... You are the ones keeping me going :)
Using my little magnifying clip... Well they are tiny holes!!
Ok I am going now....
Your all wonderful :)
