Today I had confirmation that on 2nd April I will be going into hospital to have my cortisone injection in my hip. I have the early stages of osteoarthritis and hopefully the injection will help ease the pain that I am in. The pain is constant at the moment. If it works I am going to ask about having one in the right hip at a later date. I have had a letter explaining the procedure and the pros and cons. I have read it and taken it all in and I am now going to just ignore the cons and keep my fingers crossed.
It is a cancellation, so a bit of a surprise. They did want me at the hospital at 7am. I live an hour away , so leave at 6am? Get up at 4.30am or so...............with a 10 year old..........Mmmmmmm.....managed to beg and get 8.30am. Not sure what to do with Sophie as Grandparents are on holiday that day and is it a bit early to impose on friends? So poor Sophie is likely to be dragged along as well, I am not allowed to drive so hubby has to stay with me as well. Family outing...........oh great............but such is life.
I have had some lovely post this week and I shall blog here about it on Friday when I can sit still and write it properly with pictures etc.
