I went to the gynecologist's appointment, yesterday afternoon. The repeat procedure went very smoothly, this time. Oh, the difference being hydrated can make! I was told to call them, next week, for the results.
I showed the doctor my dog bites and he thought they were healing well and there was no need to go to urgent care. Then, he proceeded to tell me how he was walking his dog, one time, and a bigger dog came to attack his dog. The doctor said the big dog knocked him down and he broke his femur! I am glad it wasn't a big dog who jumped on me, because I would have probably fallen down and, with my osteoporosis, I could have broken something very easily! Thank Goodness for small mercies!
I hadn't eaten anything in the morning, before I went to the appointment (just my morning tea and a cracker from the package I took with me) and I thought I might buy something for my lunch on the way home. However, nothing seemed to appeal, so, I just came home and ate leftover spaghetti. Later, for dinner, I had a salad with steak, and, just before going to bed, at 3:00 a.m., I had pancakes! Ha, ha, I have my breakfast before I go to sleep!
I didn't go for a walk, yesterday. I was planning to water the garden in the evening, but, the neighbor whose dog bit me came to check on me. She said she had come on Wednesday, too, but, I hadn't been at home. I guess I was out walking when she came. Anyway, I showed her that the bite marks were healing and assured her that I was OK. She apologized, again. I just told her to keep the dogs locked up! After she left, I forgot about watering the garden!
It was quite hot, yesterday. We went up to 105F where I live. Even though the evening was nice and cool, the house remained over 80F when I went to sleep. As a result, I went to sleep with the fan on low and without pulling the covering sheet over me. Maybe, my legs got too cold. Because I woke up with a bad cramp on my right leg. For a moment or two, I wondered if it was tetanus setting in, because the dog bites were on my right hand and same side as the cramping leg, but, of course, tetanus is felt mostly in the jaws and neck. I rubbed some Tiger Balm, took a magnesium tablet (I used to take them all the time, earlier, but, haven't taken them in a long time), and covered myself with a quilt as well as the covering sheet! The leg is fine, this morning, and the hand is healing.
Since I forgot to water the garden, yesterday, I watered the front garden, this morning. The back garden will be watered in the evening.
My daughter will be coming down for the weekend, tonight. I'm looking forward to spending some more in person time with her.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The leg cramp was just that - a cramp, not tetanus setting in!
- The hand seems to be healing well
- Yesterday's procedure went well
- I had a safe drive there and back
- Daughter will be coming home, tonight
On the To Do List for today:
- Water the front garden - DONE
- Water the back garden (in the p.m.)
- Remake daughter's bed with fresh sheets
- Do laundry
- Do dishes/run the dishwasher
- Pick up DD from the airport!
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for today? What have you planned for the weekend?
