My Latest Update
This past week has been a crazy one. Within the past week, I’ve experienced a few major leg cramps in my calves. They were so bad that they actually woke me up from REM sleep at 2:00 in the morning. I went into the doctor the next day and he measured my legs. One was a little bigger than the other – by one centimeter. He had this somewhat concerned look on his face and said I needed to go in as soon as possible and havee an ultrasound done on my leg to rule out a possible blood clot. I looked at him and asked, “What could happen if I have a blood clot?” He said, “If you have a blood clot, depending on where it’s located, it could move into your lungs and we don’t want that to happen.” Enough said.
The next day, I headed into the local hospital and had an ultrasound done, as well as a full blood panel. The Ultrasound Technician was amazing! This was the first time I’d had an ultrasound done at any other time other than pregnancy. He used that wonderful “goop” and it was really warm this time. Man, where was he through a few of my pregnancies? LOL I still think the goop is gross, but he said it’s actually quite good for your skin. Ummm…..no thank you! LOL
Thankfully, there were no blood clots. After the ultrasound, I headed over to the lab and had 2 viles of blood taken from me. She did an amazing job and it was over within a minute – literally! I’m waiting for my blood test results to find out if I’m deficient in anything. I should know the results by the beginning of next week hopefully.
From the hospital, we went to get breakfast and then to move my property. I was so excited to have my kitchen accessories (i.e. Cuisinart Food Processor, Kitchen Aid, all of my kitchen products), in addition to photos, personal memorabilia, and more! My dad and I moved so much stuff…even furniture all by ourselves. Let me tell ya, today I am feeling it! My arms are so sore! LOL
Oh and then the other day I had my haircut and you know how I always love a new haircut. It turned out really cute and my hair is so much curlier now! Yes!
I hope everyone has a great week!
