Been referred to Mayo Clinic if my insurance will cover it. Apparently I need a really creative surgeon.

More info when I get it.  Confused

Didn't get a call today like I was s'posed to. Just as well. Was in the retina surgeon's office trying to puke up what wasn't there.  Toilet Yes, I don't do well with the vegetable dye that goes in my vein so we can get the pictures of the back of the eye. Worth it to hear everything's healing phenomenally. Vision is up to 20-70 and I don't have to see my other eye doc until January. Once the eye settles down, might be around 20-40 and a weak pair of driving glasses will overcome the small cataract that's holding steady.

Back of my hand looks like I punched a Marine as they had to go in between my knuckles to get a vein that wouldn't blow. Anemia is making me a VERY bad stick.  Brick Wall

Time enough tomorrow to track down the office staff that should've called today.  Roll Eyes

'Tain't the joint tho', it's in the front of the pelvis. Roll you finger just to the soft squishy bit inside where your hipbone pokes out [at least it does if you're a girl] toward the bladder and that's where things are pinching.

Now staggering to the 'puter as my lappie is over my allowed weight limit. Glad to be back, even if it's intermittant.

Persian Diversion has been an angel about laundry and chores, his mom is majorly special and not above diving in and scrubbing moi where I couldn't reach. Adore them both.

Rest of the community been taking turns with groceries, chores, company, and getting me to the point the home nurses discharged me this week as they figure I'm in good hands until I go back to the surgeon latter half of January.

Getting up off knees is NEXT week's PT. retreated to recliners & chairs W/ arms. Still need handlebars to get off the loo. Only 1 more week of blood thinner shots. Then I can get more energetic w/o worrying about things like internal bleeding if I bump myself.
