It’s hard to believe that it’s been two weeks since my last post. I’ve had several readers write, asking where I’ve been, and the honest truth is that I haven’t actually *been* anywhere other than home, studio, church, and the doctor’s office.
Wait a minute –
Yes, I found myself on March 26 at the doctor’s office in some pretty severe pain, wondering what on earth I had done to myself.
After seeing one specialist who referred me immediately back to my internist and having had some blood drawn for tests to rule out some nasty infections, the diagnosis was that I had apparently sprained, pulled, strained, you name it – a muscle in my groin.
Why does that word make me wrinkle my nose?
It just does. That’s all.
After leaving the internist’s office with scrips for two (2) antibiotic meds, one (1) pain reliever, and instructions to go home and soak in a hot tub or shower, I found myself in the unenviable position of having to cancel at least one or more of my Kindermusik classes to give my body a chance to heal.
We also had family from out of town visiting with us last weekend as we celebrated our the birthdays of our oldest and youngest children.
Faith is now *13* – another teenager (#5!) to add to our collection. Matthew is now *30* – which really creates a paradoxical situation. I’m *too* old to have another teenager and I’m *too* young to have a 30 year old! 😀
As I told the doctor last week, we’ve got so much to look forward to this spring with our son’s wedding, numerous gigs for David and myself, both as musicians and directors, that I just plain don’t have time to be injured. He gently but firmly reminded me that if I don’t take care of myself, someone else will have to.
So I’m here, just not *here* as much as I usually am, due to doctor’s orders and the fact that even sitting at the computer for just a few minutes in a padded chair was just dang uncomfortable! 🙂
