Things have been a little off this week so that is why I am posting later than usual.
First, I just got back from being in Las Vegas for 5 days for a softball tournament.
It was fine but my plantar fasciitis flared up and I was in a lot of pain.
I love playing softball but it is hard to play when you want to cry every time you take a step.
It had been bothering me for a few weeks and the foot doctor put me on prednisone to help with the inflammation.
That didn't work.
The only thing that did happen was I got a nice bout of insomnia.
According to my sleeping app, I got about 6 hours of sleep while I was away.
I am not good at math but 6 goes into 5 equals...
Being tired and in discomfort is not a fun way to spend your days.
Besides that, the tournament went well.
We won more than we lost but we didn't win enough.
Maybe next year.
It was good to come home though because I really missed the family.
Remember when I said I was happily domesticated, well this trip really reinforced that.
Home is where the heart is.
I went to see the foot doctor again to see what the next steps were since the prednisone didn't work.
And it was getting a cortisone shot in my heel.
I had to get one about 10 years ago and it ranks right near the top for most painful experiences.
Number one is falling down a hill and hitting a sprinkler head with my hip.
They have to spread the cortisone around so they jab the needle in and out of your heel.
Basically the doctor is stabbing you in the heel with a long needle.
For several minutes.
You are sober.
And you want to cry.
Fortunately, I went to new foot doctor that didn't graduate from an S & M academy.
He actually used an ultrasound to locate the inflammation and only had to put the needle in one spot.
The prednisone finally worn off and I actually slept more than 3 hours last night.
Things are looking up.
I also think I am going to start posting on Thursdays now that my softball season is over.
I have more free time and updating on Tuesday didn't always work with my schedule.
I also want to spend some time getting my taxidermied squirrel site up and running on Etsy.
Sorry for the rambling post but congrats if you made it this far.
Hope your week is going well.
Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you soon.
I am better than I was. I will be better than I am.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
