Spoke Too Soon

Apparently, I was NOT ready for belly dancing yesterday after all.  As the day progressed my left hip hurt more and more.  I knew just what it was (the tendon) since having the recent conversation with my surgeon.  I iced it again and took an anti-inflammatory.  

I had an appointment yesterday that I did not feel comfortable canceling or even postponing at the last minute so I sucked it up and went.  I took my cane.  It was so bad, I could hardly get out of the car when I got home.

I emailed 65MD and confessed what I'd done.  He felt like the thing to do was to come home and see for himself.  We decided to try more ice and rest.  As long as I was sitting with my legs straight out in front of me, I was fine.  Having ice on it was even better.  Moving was another story!

We agreed that I didn't need urgent medical attention and that today should be a relaxing day.  I cleared my calendar of my out of the house appointments.  It is just as well as today is predicted to be a stormy day.  It is raining as I type this.  Plus, being the first of the month, I lave plenty to do from my lovely little home office.

This morning, I did as much of my therapy as I could.  A couple hurt so bad I stopped.  I've iced it once and will continue to throughout the day.  I'm mostly OK with it.  It really isn't stopping me from doing much.  I think I will save working out at the gym until this is completely gone.  

I still might go tomorrow and poke around just to get a better idea of what's what.  I got a very quick tour the day I signed up.  The student was trying to man the desk and give me a tour at the same time, so it wasn't in depth.  I'll decide for sure tomorrow.


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry. That really stinks. I hope it feels better soon!

  2. Oh my, Lori! I'm so sorry about your discouraging issue after feeling all pumped up. Just get better and then think slow and mundane, not dancing and walk dancing! :)

  3. Ouch! That is no fun! Slow it down even further! You'll get there!!!!
