I always have my blood work down at my doctor’s office a week before my appointment. I am making a list of all the things that I have ignored for the past year, or two. I have been packing up boxes for the Am Vets, throwing out lots of older stuff, and giving items to friends that I know will use them.
At the same time, I had let my front garden get overgrown, so been out one evening to cut back plants. Tonight I was cutting the huge leaves right at the ground, and my left hip gave out on me. I couldn’t go down, or get up. It just wouldn’t move for a couple of minutes. I gingerly started to stand up, still bending at the knees. It was hard to walk, but I am back in the house. I have been walking very slowly, and the pain is still there, but not as acute.
Tomorrow there will be no boxing, and I most likely won’t even go to the gym. I will rest it, and see how I feel. I knew that Len had done damage to my body, left shoulder, and hip, but didn’t realize that it would give out like that.
If necessary I will use one of the walking aides that I bought for Len. Better to be safe than sorry.
