Hospital Date

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.
Best wishes

Speaking as someone who has been asked to step in for early morning (and overnight) childcare for friends with hospital appointments - it's a one off, I'm sure people will be only too happy to help if you need them to. I'm sure you'd repay the favour if you were asked!

Good luck on 2nd my friend! I'm sure everything would be OK.
Take care and rest!

Well, if you treat it as a family day out, Sophie and OH can keep each other company when you are being treated, then they can both give you hugs and take you back home to care for you.

Good luck with it, I hope it works for you.

I hope it all goes well for you. My mum has had this injections and despite initial pain has found them to be very beneficial. I'll be thinking of you all x

I hope it goes well and is really successful. I'm sure Sophie won't mind going along, especially if it means her Mum will be feeling better. Will be thinking of you.
