another page.....

....another journal page.....day 8! Is it already January 8th already? Another simple page due to not being able to move much.....
....checked into the hospital yesterday for some blood work and x-rays. Got news this morning that it all looks good...except I have costrachondritus, oh spell check isn't even going to touch that one. It is an inflammation of the muscles around my ribs. I have had it before but not like this.
It was caused from all the heavy duty coughing from the last three weeks. The remedy is a drug I can't take due to being a transplant patient so she gave me another drug which I won't take because it is a sedative...so I am on bed rest (yuck) and Tylenol. Being on immunosuppressants also slows down recovery times. There is sooo much I want to do! Yes, I am impatient. But it also hurts to do anything. It hurt to drive my car so DH came home from work to take me to the hospital..what a sweetie.
My mission is to be functional by Saturday so I can go to the Quilt & Embroidery show with my friend Jan.
