But all I did was fall down!

My Wednesday personal helper convinced me to go to the doctor to have my knee looked at. I was able to go at 9:30 this morning and had it examined quite thoroughly and was then told that an X-ray would have to be made of it. I'll have to go to the hospital for that. I made an appointment, but couldn't have it done until tomorrow. My sister will take me and her friend will pick me up, because my sister has to go to work. 

I wasn't really in the mood to go to the hospital to have an X-ray made, but I'll be good and have it done. My personal helper talked me into it. I needed some convincing. It upsets my day and I don't like anything upsetting my day. I don't like my schedule changed. I like for everything to be predictable and normal, but I'll be alright once it's done. It will be a huge relief. 

The doctor said I had quite a wound, but that it was healing really well. I didn't say that I let my dog lick it clean and that's why it looked so good. She would have come at me with a huge injection needle. 

This morning there were suddenly workmen outside my living room windows digging up the sidewalk. They dug down to the water main. They did what they had to do and sometime later some other men came and closed the hole up with new sand and retiled it.They used heavy machinery to do this and Tyke was beside himself with fear or anger. He barked quite a bit. Luckily, they worked fast and got the job done quickly. There was no notice in the mailbox saying why they had shown up like that and what work they had performed. It could have been a terrorist network. Nobody would have been the wiser. 

I've got to take a nap. I'm so sleepy and my knee hurts. I need a rest. 

Have a nice day!

i'm glad you are having your knee looked up (didn't know you fell, must have missed that post)...knee injuries are nothing to sneeze at and can become chronic, so take care my friend ♥

Good idea to get the knee looked at. It has gone on long enough.
Not a good idea to let Tyke lick the wound! Remember where HE licks! Honey is supposed to have antiseptic healing qualities.
Lovely sunny day here but very cold.

Nuts in May

Glad that you got your knee looked at.

I disgree with Maggie May! I have heard that dogs have antiseptic tongues. Seems to have worked with you but I suppose it is rather unorthodox medicine!

Sorry I haven't been here in a while. I came back only to read you've hurt your knee. You were right ot have it looked at and if an Xray needs to be done, then that's it. Your knee carries a big part of your body weight and it needs to be in good working order, so I hope they check it out thoroughly.

And I agree, don't worry about Tyke licking your wound. It shouldn't be doing any harm and I've heard many stories of this helping rather than hindering the healing process.

Gotta try and see if I can catch up with your posts but I doubt it...

Dr Tyke!

I am glad they are x-raying your knee, it certainly will not hurt anything and you don't want it bothering you for years to come.
Sleep well and let us know how you make out okay....:-) Hugs

Bev, I agree with you and I think Tyke has helped the healing process. The cut is all cleaned up and looks good. A dog's saliva has healing properties.It's a well known fact.


Bev said...

lol about the doctor and your wound! I don't think he would have approved!

Hope the x-ray is OK. I'm sure it's worth doing.
