Hiatus: The Ugly

When I conceived of doing these three posts, they were going to be lighthearted and self-depreciating, two of my specialties. At the time I had no idea I was going to once again detrimentally alter my life by falling on my bike and damaging my hip. The concept of injury never entered my mind, and why should it, since I was going out for a slow fourteen mile journey with a group of fellow sightseers. Ugh.

I can’t play along with my theme again today.

This post is just to say hello, “hello”, and to let you know that I still can’t put weight on the hip and will be calling to make a doctor appointment hopefully for this week. I am concerned about how little progress I am making. I walk to walk again, the sooner the better.

Off to take a bath. Do you really get clean taking baths? I mean you are literally sitting in your own dirty water…

Hope your day is wonderful.

  1. I thought Dr Royster sounded familiar, he was the doctor I saw (most likey after being recommended by HwC) for my right hip.

    The earliest appointment I could get was next Tuesday morning. If I don’t feel better by then I will certainly need Dr Royster’s help.

    Signing off until lunch…

    Hang tough, this too shall pass.

    The doctor’s appointment is a pro move.
    You played your one D.i.t.B. (C 2017, Steve) card, now it’s time for some real doctoring.
    (Peachtree Orthopedic, blah, blah, blah, Atlanta Braves, etc.)

    Tried a new place for a quick dinner last night. Wanted to stay local, because of the sustained traffic volume on surface streets. Gave “Our Way Cafe” a try. Little hole in the wall place across from the Waffle House on College, east of Decatur, in Avondale. Passed it a million times, never stopped in. Nice enough. Cheap. Nothing further to report. Follow-up unlikely.

    Adjusting to the new traffic reality. Clairemont almost always heavy, mornings evenings. Scott Blvd and Ponce as well. Headed out I-20E this morning. Hopefully, the return will be uneventful.

      And what did you order at the Our Way Café?
      I love small hole in the wall type of places.

        Our Way Cafe:
        – Baked chicken, creamed corn, field peas, roll
        – “stewed” pork, mashed potatoes, field peas, creamed corn, roll

        I understand they have “salmon roll” on Friday.

        Clean, cordial service.

    Deep bone bruises suck – when I fell on my mtn bike last year (when I broke my arm), I had 1 that never really discolored on my knee/thigh, but hurt like hell for a long time. Hopefully that is all it is & will get better soon.

    Last night Allan & I couldn’t decide on anything in our fridge for dinner, so it was a nice night, we walked up to the Delkwood Grill to sit on the patio & have dinner. There are NOT enough places with patios near us. It was about 4 miles round trip, so we got a little exercise.

    Saw Palookaville is throwing a thing Monday 4/17 with polka music – too bad its on the wrong side of town, damn 85 collapsing. Could be entertaining.

    I’ve always felt that way about baths too. Baths are for soaking and relaxing, but I still feel like I need to hose off after. And just think how folks used to share bathwater back in the day too. Ewww. 🙂

    Hoping you feel like dancing soon. I did speak to my doc about the pain in the hip I’ve been having. Dissing my idea (bursitis), he said it was more likely an IT band issue- not deep enough in the hip to be bursitis. And, in 3 degrees of separation, my doc was in a summer program at (large university in Chicago which escapes me) with… the new president of the Atlanta Fed! How cool is that?

    HwC, Our Way Café was owned by some friends of ours. They catered our “We got married and didn’t invite you to the wedding but we’re having a party instead” 11 years ago. An acrimonious divorce mandated the ownership change. Again, small world.

    The board met after the Games meeting to discuss what to do about a vendor availability and another change to the field layout. I think I was home by 10:30. Traffic home was fine but getting to Norcross yesterday afternoon was painful!

      My bursitis elbow swelling has started to recede again – I got a new scrip for Naproxen when I was at my PCP last week, not sure if that’s why or not. Its still got some fluid, but it doesn’t look like a big tumor anymore, so I don’t feel the need to get it drained again.

  6. I successfully crossed Peachtree today, and worked up a sweat doing so. Maybe each time I crutch around I am getting a workout?

    Had to mail a card today, so I am eating at Colony Square. And because Tin Drum sent me a $2 off deal, I am eating there. Just realized that I have eaten at a place starting with “Tin” all three days.

    I went to a new to me (but way to close to my office) place for lunch today – the Jerusalem Bakery. I had a Chicken Shawarma – dang that was tasty.
    Going to have to go back again & try something else!
