It's been a rough day. I decided to sleep in the bed last night, flat, with pillows under my knees, just as I always did until this episode started. I thought, either I'm doing better or not, but I need to know where I stand before going to the doctor tomorrow. I lasted 15 minutes. That's all it took before the pain was shooting from my hip down my leg and out my foot. I moved to the chaise and took medicine, but it took two or three hours before I could go to sleep.
I was still kind of hurting this morning, and this afternoon it started up and only just now let up some after taking extra medicine and taking a hot bath. I also took a couple of muscle relaxants, so hopefully I will do okay tonight in the chaise and can sleep.
I stayed right on plan with my eating and drank a good bit of water. The scale is finally starting to move a little. I did decide to add a few calories in case the problem was that I was not eating enough. I had a banana with breakfast and a 100-calorie pack of almonds with my lunch. However, I did not have my afternoon snack, so it was really about the same. I was busy and not particularly hungry.
That's it. I'm ready to be fixed. Over and out.
