Hey! So, I woke up Friday with a pocket of fluid on top of my elbow – this hasn’t happened before. It didn’t cause any pain/discomfort – my elbow just felt tight (if that makes sense).
Well, last night my elbow started to bother me a bit. When I woke up with morning it was on fire. There is definitely something going on with it. Unfortunately, the one and only doctor that I have trusted with my elbow is out until Wednesday. There is one doctor who has done an injection in my elbow 2-3 years ago that I would trust to take this fluid out….and he happens to be doing the walk-in clinic today – so no appointment needed. I feel relieved about that! (Thank the Lord!)
Normally, I wouldn’t feel quite this panicky about getting it “fixed,” but we have a really big trip coming up on Saturday. I have been doing everything else to boost my immune system to prevent cold/flu, but didn’t foresee my elbow becoming an issue! =)
It’s been 2 1/2 years since I’ve had to deal with major elbow issues….thankful that it’s been so long, but a bit uneasy about the timing of this flare-up. I’ve already pretty much cancelled my day and I’m trying not to use/move my elbow.
Trusting in Him that HIs ways are perfect…
Please, please pray that everything works out this week….there have been several hiccups with our upcoming trip. Thank you!
Also, my Uncle Carl had several strokes last week – he’s home now, but his body took quite a blow. So thankful that he is okay though and still here with us! (He has 5 daughters!) So, so so thankful!
