I thought I had today all planned out...breakfast with mom, knitting at 10, hang out until 2pm and doctor's appointment at 2:30pm.
The doctor's appointment for my sore arm and shoulder, and weakness in the arm. I really didn't notice the weakness until I tried to carry the garbage bag. I tried to see the Sport's Medicine doc, but they didn't consider knitting a sport. I suspect my problem started after finishing the lace from hell. Anyway, to get an appointment on a certain for an acute problem, I had to call at 7:30am that day.
2:30 seemed the perfect time. I could drive over after knitting, see the doc, and get my blood tests done for my routine appointment in August. One problem...knitting was for next week. Oh well, I had a great time at Aloha Yarns, and practically had Nanea all to myself. And, I actually spent 7 hours without my computer. (not counting Wonbin the iphone)
Anne stopped by and I scored a 3 lb avocado! Can't wait for it to get ripe. I always worry about these massive avocados since a former patient got beaned on the head picking one. She luckily did not get a concussion, but had a very impressive bruise that when down her back as well!
Update: 6/27/2014 Here's what a 3 lb avocado looks like. almost 8 inch tall and 5 inch in diameter.
I've been referred for some xrays and to see a Physiatrist. In the meantime I'm going to knit and spin on.
Blogless Sandy had a good laugh. She is reading a book about chemo brain, a type of cognitive dysfunction related to chemotherapy. The symptoms sound similar to retirement brain, which I may be suffering from. Mom and I spend part of each am determining what day of the week its and what tasks we need to get done. This becomes a feat when there are no work days to schedule around. Having calendars help some, but only if the data is entered correctly.
I finished a little stashbuster.
