Brain Freeze ~
Blogging, sometimes easier said then done, isn’t it? I’ve attempted to write a post on a few occasions without success. Searching for words to provide that sense of comfort, hope and desire to share something new or exchange tips to help manage our daily lives just wasn’t happening! Hard to imagine I’d every be at a loss for words! Brain freeze right here! 🙂 I’m finally recognizing limitations do indeed play a huge role in my every day life. A good reminder that I need to focus, do what I can, and turn the rest over to Him! Let it go!
And there was my challenge. The infection of my foot continued. I presented to urgent care with a low-grade fever, my foot resembling that of an elephant, swollen with no sign of bone structure. So large that I could’nt fit into shoes. The doctor prescribed the typical course of treatment: antibiotic, elevation, warm compresses and rest. PT was put on hold until this matter clears.
Needless to say, a few weeks later, infection has subsided but the wound is still closing. Talk about frustration! I’m trying to understand the possible underlying cause(s) for my rather bizarre, lingering infections I’ve had over the past several months. Remembering, not all issues are MS related. Added to my “to do” list, a recommended visit to a hematologist. Never thought of this. Of course, I went right to the computer to educate myself and see if this seemed reasonable. It did. I’ve been struggling with below normal white blood cell counts (our infection fighters) for a year now. Love my previous blood work history for comparison! A good eval should provide answers and/or rule out concerns. 🙂
On a positive note…hubby has a conference in Cape May, NJ. One of my favorite places to be, the shore! Talk about pushing my happy buttons! Nothing beats the peace and serenity the ocean can bring! One of God’s great provisions to enjoy!
