Because I have no shame.....

See that  big thigh?
Yep, it's mine...and I don't care b/c I like to share.

The yellow circle?
*where they prepped me w/ iodine before my cortisone shot.
The bandaid?
*yea whatever? simply procedural I am sure...really no need.

This face?
*Is what I am pretty sure I looked like when I received the shot.

What you can't hear?
*Oh, SH$T!!
 This hurts way worse than the one in the shoulder did!!

What now?
*wait...and wait...3 days to be exact.

If no relief?
 *MRI to see if I tore some cartilage ...and then repair it.

What the Doc. said about my hip bone and X-ray?
*I have very thin cartilage and the "ball" joint 
sits on the edge of my hip socket....

What that means?
*To save my bones as I get older I should stick to shorter runs, 
if any ...10K's will be my max from now on.
Also cycling, swimming, walking and weight lifting 
are better options than running for me.

I'm sorry to hear that! I hope they have some kind of physical therapy in mind so that you can be up and running again, even if its short distances!

Ups and downs lately...

Up:  I think I finally found an ice cream my kids won't like...Java Chunk!  It tastes like coffee with chocolate chunks...Yum to me but ...
