Last week… I had a doctor’s appointment about my stress fracture. As I explained in my previous post, the results of my latest MRI showed that my stress fracture had healed but that I had a tear somewhere in a tendon in my hip. So I went to the doctor’s appointment (a doctor who specializes in this sort of thing). I was examined. And they (the doctor and his.. trainee?) concluded that their examination was not correlating with the tear on the MRI. BUT that they believe I have tendonitis. The solution? Well.. they wanted to give me two shots of cortisone in my hip on the spot. In my HIP. Now, I do not like shots. At all. Especially when they are really long needles going into places that I do NOT prefer them to go. In any case, I saw the needles and flipped. After some tears (on my part), hyperventilating (also on my part), and reasoning (my doctor), we decided to pursue physical therapy and medication instead. Much better. All joking aside, this route will take much longer and the shot would have told my doctor a lot but guys.. I literally could NOT take that shot. There was nothing in the world at that point that was going to make me let my doctor put those two huge needles in my body. Oh no. He said he understood and whatnot, so we shall see what happens. And this will be my third time in therapy, in case you didn’t know. Here’s to hoping this time actually works… But just to let you guys know, blogging will most likely suffer between therapy, work, and school.. I’m barely keeping up now as it is.

I would also like to thank everyone for your support, encouragement, and advice.. I love you all!!


And now on to happier things 🙂 Last week I had the BEST oats… which I have dubbed, Banana Pudding Oats.. plus peanut butter. And maple.
