Dr. Appt. Not So Great Today!
I have been having problems with my left foot swelling up so much I can't bend my ankle. Today it started swelling all the way up to my knee. I called the Dr. and got an appointment for this afternoon. He ruled out my heart, a break and a few other things. I mentioned to the Dr. I had found a tick attached to my scalp. He looked at the area where the tick bit me and told me the head was removed but there was a ring around the area like a bullseye. Guess who is on a major antibiotic because of Lyme's Disease-you win the prize if you said Sherri! My joints are hurting and I'm so tired. I am also running a fever. Lucky me! My Dr. then sent me to CMC Hospital in Pineville for a venus doppler. He wanted to make sure I didn't have a blood clot. I DO NOT have one -thank goodness!! My technician, Brenda was wonderful even though she had to push so hard I thought I was going to jump off the table!! Needless to say no moving boxes this weekend or anytime soon for that matter. I will be on the sofa with my leg up and resting. I am pretty sure I just did too much in the move this time. When we moved to the house in October, we will definitely be hiring someone to move our things. Hopefully my meds will give me some relief from this pain and swelling. I'm glad I went to the Dr. today and the Lyme's Disease was caught early!! Everyone take care!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
