I did what I wanted to do
Yesterday, I said I was going to be productive and I think I did a darned good job. First, I did call the doctor about my ultrasound. At first, the nurse said 'the doctor will review your results and either she or the PA who put in the order will call you with the results. This will probably be Monday, unless its urgent and then it will be today.' Of course, they called when I was busy and left a message 'the doctor reviewed your results and they are normal but the PA will call you Monday to give you the details.' If its normal, what is there to tell me? Call me confused.
I also said I was going to ace my job interview. Well I did go and met with them but now I need to send a thank you and some more writing samples. I am trying to figure out what samples to send...
I also got caught up on my volunteer work. And went for a walk. And went wedding dress shopping with my sister (and she finally bought a dress). And I got a manicure pedicure - the highlight of my day - coral fingernails and bright green toes. I am not kidding. They are bright green.
Today I have a lot to do. I am only up so early because my husband had to go into work this morning. I am going to meet friends, go for my walk and then we are going into Boston to go to dinner and see a comedy show.
On the medical front, my cortisone shot finally seems like it might be doing some good. But there is still a long way to go here. Right now, I have less tingling in left leg, but still get severe hip pains. My back has some 'significant' areas of pain. I'll call the pain doctor Monday and see what they want to do. When we were at the conference last weekend, one of the presenters, who was a doctor, said there is no reason for anyone to be in pain ever. Well, I'm all for that.
