The Weekend Blog (Vol.48)
22nd March 2015
I was looking at my Timehop this week and noticed that it was exactly a year ago since I started having major problems with my hip. I even found the tweet that related to the day I unexpectedly ended up back home in Shropshire for a weekend to recover. You can read that post here.
I thought that was pretty interesting considering that this week, on Wednesday, I had my second steroid injection. Tyrone was on hand-holding duty this time and said that the injection went in four times without leaving the skin. So, it went in at four different angles. Yep, owch.
It was a lot more tender than the first time of having the steroids and I couldn’t put much weight on my leg for the first 24 hours. I climbed into bed and stayed there all day.
By Friday I was feeling a lot better. In fact, I walked into town and back, and I was completely pain free. It felt so damn good! Here’s hoping it stays that way. It’s just two weeks now until I go to New York!
Earlier in the week I was suffering quite badly with stress. I’d left a piece of coursework until the last minute and I was unsure as to whether I’d get it done on time or now. Thankfully I did, and it didn’t even require staying up all night. However, I’ve learnt my lesson not to leave coursework until the day before. It was the first time I’d done that in nearly three years, so I’m hoping I can be forgiven for this one off occasion.
Did any of you managed to catch the eclipse on Friday? Exciting stuff. Unfortunately all the pictures, including my own, make it look like the moon. The cloud covered the sun shortly after this but I think it brings a nice effect to the photos.
