At least for a while...
Those of you who have followed me for a while know how much I love cowboy boots...I even wore them for my wedding...Click here if you'd like to see.
But recently one of my calves has decided to swell up making it very uncomfortable to wear them. I've been meaning to call my doctor about it, but just hadn't made the time...Until yesterday morning...
My calf plus now my ankle too had become sooo swollen, much more than before, I thought it might be time to give my doctor a call. Well to make a long story short, hubby and I ended up at the emergency room, per doctor's orders...His concern was that it my be DVT or deep vein thrombosis, better known as blood clots....Yikes! But don't worry, fortunately, after an ultrasound and three long hours of waiting the ER doctor determined there were no clots...Whew!!!!
However, my calf is still swollen, and the doctor doesn't seem to know why. He wants me to keep an eye on it and check back with my regular doctor. He also wants me to take it easy and try to stay off my feet and keep my leg elevated as much as possible....What?! But I have so many projects I want to work on..."Doctor's orders" Hubby keeps reminding me...Arggg! Well at least I can still blog.
Thank you for your visit today. I always look forward to you stopping by. It always, always, always brightens up my day.
Hugs and Kisses,
