This happens when blogging. I've been moving along quite smoothly when a swollen leg comes into the picture. For the past couple of days my left leg was swollen, from the feet to my quadriceps.
red flags immediately went up for me. One is the fact that I had my left knee replaced over 7 years ago and I was hoping that some of the parts weren't going to have to be reworked. Another was the fact that I'm diabetic and we won't go into that one. The third possibility was raised by my doctor and that was possible blood clots. Well, to be better safe than sorry, I was sent to the hospital to have an ultrasound reading done on my leg. To say the least I called Mrs.74, and she was fearing the worst. I picked her up at home(by this time, I had called work and told my immediate supervisor I wasn't going to be in)and we went to the hospital to have the test run. Long story short, test was negative and I didn't have to be an overnight guest at Medina General Hospital.
We get home and I go to sit and read and the power goes off. Believe me when I tell you that I didn't know today was Murphy's birthday. Of course if I was laying out the special WIXY calendar, this year would have been designated as "The Year of the Murphy."
Nothing like unplanned events to suck the creativity out of you.
