Doctor's report

January 28th, 2010 at 10:47 am

I went to the doctor yesterday, and to my surprise he told me I no longer had to use the walker OR wear the boot! So I have been limping around on my own two feet. Sleeping without the boot was wonderful last night!

The bad news is that I have to have a pin removed next month. Although they say it is simple outpatient surgery, I am not psyched up for more surgery of any kind.

I have been driving, too. I drove to the doctor yesterday (first time since my accident). I had no problems. I was able to get gas and I found parking near the building. (I'm still waiting for my handicap placard). It felt so good to be out on the road again!

When I came to work after the appointment, there was no place to park, even though I had a special permit. There were simply no parking spaces of any kind. So I parked in an outlying lot and had to walk around the football field. When our president's secretary heard about that, she went to campus security and demanded that they reserve a spot for me! There it was this morning. Right next to the president's reserved spot!

I am so, so tired. Working, getting used to walking, and a sore throat (which will become a cold, I know) are all having their toll on me. I would go home, but I have to write some profiles on some big brass attendees at a dinner the president is going to. So I must stick it out. Will be very happy to see the weekend again.

Yesterday's spending:

Gas - $22.90
Breakfast (Mickey D) - $4.27
Lunch (KFC) - 5.67
Doctor's co-pay -- $15.00

Plus, I signed up to have $10 taken out of my paycheck each month for the annual fund. Since I work in the development office, they want to have 100% participation. $10 is cheaping out, but I have some serious goals of my own to meet.

    Congrats on the progress! Drink some lemon juice in your water this evening and maybe it'll help with your throat. Always seems to keep my throat from getting worse.
