What a gorgeous day.
My first day of summer vacation from school was packed. I want to try to get into a good routine, but if today was any indication, it won't happen. ha ha ha ha
I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon this morning. I have been having a lot of shoulder pain (this happens about every 3 years or so) because I have Bursitis in my left shoulder. I get a shot of cortizone in the shoulder, and it fixes the problem. Like a Miracle!
Anyway, I had hoped to go for a walk (got to get in my 10,000 steps every day this summer), but just couldn't seem to get going before the appointment.
So the doctor ordered xrays of both shoulders (the right one has been bothering me, too, but not as badly). He says the problem is arthritis! What? well, I still have some bursitis in the left shoulder, but the pain in the right shoulder is from arthritis, and that I have it in both shoulders.
The good thing is that I get some Physical Therapy to make my upper body stronger, YAY! training paid for by the insurance. I was hoping to start working out my upper body this summer. I have been doing all that walking and riding, but nothing with my arms. Since my shoulders were hurting, I wanted to see the doctor first. So I hope to start soon.
I looped up my street then down to the elementary school. There is a trail system that goes through the woods behind the school. I took the lower path towards 24th street.
I worked on my Bex Socks, then after dinner on the new afghan I am making for Quidditch.
Ok, off to bed. It's super late, and I need to walk tomorrow before I start any crafting. I want it to be cool for my walk. Also, it's Wednesday night knitting tomorrow, and I need to be rested up!
shaping the planet with long walks.
