I went to the doctor this morning for my cortisone shot and found out that all those horror stories are absolutely not true. The shot was painless and now, hours later after the anesthetic has worn off, it still doesn’t hurt. There is some tenderness but even that is less than the pain I’ve endured for the past 3 months.
Better yet, I found out that my lab results from Friday’s blood draw were in and they showed my cholesterol was back in the normal range and my triglycerides were lower than they’ve been in years!
And…if that weren’t enough…I received my $10 i-Tunes gift certificate this afternoon, the weather is comfortable, the dog’s paw is healing nicely and I have next week off!
Life is good…sooooo good!
