The fam and I have been in Utah since last Wednesday. We left Tuesday night, drove to Flagstaff, stayed the night and drove the rest of the way to Utah on Wednesday. We finally arrived home late Sunday night.
Can I just say it is the LOOOOONGEST drive?! It is always so nice to finally arrive after 13 hours.
Anyway, we went there to celebrate Craig's parent’s 50th wedding anniversary with his family. Being married for 50 years certainly warrants a GI-normous party, right?! It was so much fun!
While there, we of course tried to fit in visits with many others and time really ran out too fast. I made sure to stop at a couple of stores that aren't in AZ. It was while I was unloading my purchases, I accidently stepped off of a ledge in Craig's parent’s driveway. I didn't fall, but I jarred myself pretty good. At first, I thought I injured an already sore ankle, but as the night went on, my shoulder became increasingly sore. By the time we left for home Sunday, I couldn't move my arm.
I hate to be slowed down in any form....unless of course, it is by my choosing.
I finally relented and went to the doctor this morning.
The jarring caused an immediate calcium growth in my shoulder. It is about the size of a dime. And that little bugger is causing all the pain.
A cortisone shot in the shoulder which will eventually break up the calcium deposit. And, I also have to do a regimen of exercises to regain mobility in my shoulder. And it hurts like a ##^%%&*@# !!!
I am hoping that typing fits into my little exercises because even that is hard!
I will not complain, though, because if I don't do it, I will loose all movement in my shoulder. The doctor told me it would freeze forever if I don't do them.
And how's a gal supposed to sew, craft, shop and blog if she can't use my shoulder?!
So........ mind your step, people. You never know when you might just injure yourself! :)
