Please....

Think of me on Thursday around noonish, as at 11am I'll be going in to Union Hospital's Day Surgery unit for the full series of cortisone injections into my back. I'm scared about it, but just nearly fell down last night while my leg was numb, so sprained/broke/whatevered my left ankle by folding the leg forward over it. *ugh*

Many thanks to those who called with concern during the day today. Went to see the orthopedist this afternoon, and he isn't certain, although he was just apparently working from the radiologist's report as well as paper copies of the x-rays. Peculiar, that. So he's sending me for an MRI, to check the positions of ligaments and tendons, etc. to see...I am not sure what. But that's not until next Tuesday at 4pm.

In other things, I hope to have a brain by Saturday, or shortly thereafter. So, barring diagnosis, I will be going to my evil sister's house on the 24th, and somewhere with J'r's family on the 25th. Then, hopefully, I can catch up on sleep over that weekend. Hopefully! *wry grin* Also, I hope to be off of strong painkillers, so it might be more likely that I can drive and/or walk more places than before.

Anyone have anything fun listed that I could do on the Solstice?
