I’m flying to southern California for my Deepak Chopra retreat this morning. And not one moment too soon. It’s been a rough week.
My oldest, dearest friend from childhood is going with me. I’m actually older than her by 4 months. Which I thought was cool, in middle school. Now? Not quite so much :))
We have “shared history” as a bond, that newer friendships can’t duplicate. She was there as my birth family disintegrated. I was there through her family struggles. There are no secrets, and no lies between us. This trip will be a blast on many levels!
An update on my hip. The MRI showed I did break it. I also ripped the cartilage that holds my leg in the socket. Who knew one trip and fall could do such a thing? Apparently not the urgent care doctor who looked at my X-rays 5 weeks ago, and said I was fine, just bruised.
I’m making the rounds with orthopedic surgeons.
The first doctor said I didn’t have a hip fracture. The second one said, “no hip surgery. Just go home and ice it. The bone will heal, and the tear will mend on its own”. Seriously?? What do you believe when you get such opposing diagnoses? I believe in more opinions and lots of my own research.
Remember, don’t wait to go to the doctor if something is wrong. I now have other issues with my hip and leg, because I waited.
Is there something you should have checked out?
