Good morning! It's a bit gray and cooler outside and it feels soooooo good! Yesterday's doctor visit went well until he decided that I needed a pneumonia shot. Let me tell you, this girl with the huge needle will never get near any part of my body again if I can help it. As the day wore on, my arm grew bigger and bigger, and more and more painful.
At the store, I dropped the large bag of birdseed that I was trying to lift into my shopping cart. And by late afternoon, I could not use the arm at all. There was a lump the size of a grapefruit where the needle had gone in. The lump and the rest of the arm felt like a solid forty pound weight stuck to my body.
Needless to say, I had a really bad night with very little sleep. I could not turn over or change position easily. At some point, I took a couple of Aleve, which seemed to help a little bit. Aside from all of this, my health appeared to be okay except for my cholesterol which was too high. I have an appointment next month with a nuitritionist to see if I can change my diet a bit to lower my cholesterol.
There's not much else for news today. My grandson starts a new job today, and my yellow rose tree is loaded witih new bud and a couple of new blossoms. Even the hibiscus has lots of new buds getting ready to bloom. Here's are photos of today's rose and a wine colored hibiscus.
Now I think I'll have me a cup of coffee, and see what mischief I can get into today. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
