Happy Friday, y’all! I hope everyone had a great week! I have not, which is why I am giving y’all this update.
I had been having some pain in my left side since Sunday morning. I was kind of massaging the area Tuesday morning and felt an incredibly painful pop. Later that afternoon, I coughed to clear my throat, and felt another excruciating pop. My sister drove me to an urgent care facility associated with my family doctor. A few X-rays were taken and the doctor on call said I likely separated the cartilage from my rib cage.
I called my doctor the next morning and asked him to go over everything. He decided my X-rays warranted a second opinion, and lo and behold, I have fractured my 8th rib. From a light cough.
I see my rheumatologist Tuesday and will ask if this could be RA related somehow. My entire body has been affected by this damn disease, so to me, it’s not absurd that this could be related. Unfortunately, this injury severely hampers my ability to test out makeup, take photos, try out new face masks, etc. I can’t even get out of my recliner without a significant amount of help.
I will try my best, but I honestly don’t see me blogging anything more than updates to my condition, until the pain subsides. I am quite active on Twitter, so you can pop over there to stay in touch, if you’d like. My handle is @LkGoodFeelGood Thankfully, all Twitter requires is my phone and my thumb hahaha
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and I will be back just as soon as I can be!!
2018 Look Good, Feel Good
