Default Good Morning Saturday!

Morning mates, in answer to the question some of you asked yesterday, yes I am trying to see a doctor, and no, no suggestion about hip replacement. The problem is bursitis, and I can't take anti-inflammatories, they make me sick, so I deal with the pain. I called in Feb. for a specialist appointment, which is not till May 15th. Yes, the wait is that long. And that will only be a consult, if he wants to do another cortisone shot, it will be another 3-5 month wait. Healthcare is not what it should be. From what I hear, if you do need a hip or knee replacement, that wait can be 2-3 years!

Meanwhile, I keep up with the aqua-exercise, it's the only thing that really helps. Walking the dogs too, and they are happy to oblige!

Weather is trying hard to clear up after a whole week of rain. My yard is much like a swamp at this point, can't even work out there.

What's everyone up to this weekend?

Good morning. Been to Publix for a few things. Now the only thing I have planned is to watch NASCAR.

All have a great day.

It's really tough if the consult says yes you need a cortisone shot, and won't give it you right then...I'm so surprised by these wait times...I would be in a wheelchair with my hip..

Trip, with her book & tea!
