My friend survived the surgery, which has a 30% mortality rate, so that is a blessing. But I am telling you if I were a drinking girl, I would have had a beer in my hand instead of a diet coke at about 10:00 yesterday morning.
I fell in the bath tub. I cannot use my right wrist to push myself up any more as it is fused with arthritis. So I use my forearm to help lift me out of the tub. Well it slipped across some water and I fell backwards. Since I was crouched down over my feet I took the weight of my body on my right ankle hyper extending it into a deep lunge. Like my toes hit my shin. I could feel the muscles or tendons shrieking in pain. I then pushed my self backward and landed on my right buttock. It is a pretty shade of purple. Also caught myself under my right arm with the tub edge. So I am bruised, sore and limping into the eye doctor. I have a severe cataract in my right eye. It is fast growing and was not there at all last fall. So now am being referred to a specialist. I am sure my insurance company will deny this as I am too young, but this was caused by you guessed it my new medication. I find myself constantly closing my right eye. My left is still 20/20. The frustrating thing about this is that I just paid over $4000.00 for lasik surgery less than 3 years ago. I was legally blind and I was not a good candidate for surgery, but I begged and now less than three years later I will have a new lens put in for almost nothing. Yes I will get the insurance to pay.
So I limped through the day, but so frustrating as I had so much to do. I was up to the hospital twice yesterday. I have a couple of dresses to do and about 10 pairs of pants to hem today. The shop is still swamped but at least I can get to the point that I can get out of dodge to Spokane Friday morning. I have an appointment with my arthritis specialist who is going to love the fact that in less than 3 months on this new medication I have a 2.6 cataract.One of the uncommon side affects is fast growing cataracts. Yeah me!
My ankle is still throbbing like it has a fever, but it is much better today! I will go and check on my dear friend at about 1 today. I also have to meet with the TV station before I go teach for a commercial for Cinderella. The poster is beautiful. I also have to get those out. I will do that Sunday and pass to parents to help.
It looks like I will just make my payments this month and be able to pay off that card, but it is like close. Only $35.00 will be left in checking when it happens.
Well I am off to hem six pairs of pants before 10 this morning, then I have several clients coming in that need things before Saturday. I am blessed with work.
Out My Window: It is getting warmer here. Thanks goodness, not that I get to enjoy it, I am chained to a sewing machine!
Have a great and productive day!
