Monday’s outing to the pharmacy (again!) chilled me so thoroughly, it took all evening to warm up, resulting in not feeling very well for the following several days…and the leg cramps were really cutting into valuable ‘sleep time’.
Friday’s visit to the doctor (to check how an outbreak of eczema was responding to treatment) revealed that there is no blood clot (YAY!), but some problem in the lumbar vertebra #5…so I will be scheduling an MRI for (hopefully?) some day this week.
The muscle cramps are excruciatingly painful, as that muscle running along the exterior of the legs contracts quickly and feels as hard as stone, and until I have the MRI, I won’t know if there will be therapy, more pain-killing drugs, or even an operation on my spine.
I haven’t exactly had much holiday spirit, or energy, or interest in posting…until this evening.
Today, I awoke early, and looked out the studio window into the darkness…and saw it was snowing!
I took a few shots after it became daylight.
Just before noon, I went out to return a few DVDs to the library, and found more gorgeous snow!
As I waited at the bus terminal, it began coming down a bit heavier, and a little bit of Christmas spirit returned.
It has been snowing most of the day, and is supposed to continue as ‘light’ snow tonight, so perhaps tomorrow, if my back and legs cooperate, I’ll get out and walk over to the lake?
