Things are looking up after my visit to the Orthopedic Institute on Friday and a cortisone shot into my left knee, which was too bad until the doctor hit the sweet spot and wow did I see stars but more importantly I could feel all the spots in my legs that were effected by the knee pain. Before the injection the doctor stated the shot may not work or it will work and can last up to 6 months or just a week, also I can only get 3 of the shots in the same knee in one calendar year. I am moving about much better , I do feel soreness where the injection took place but for the most part I am walking without use of the cane but do keep it nearby in case I feel off balance.
I did get more unpacking done yesterday five boxes down I can move about steadily and filled 3 shelves of my linen closet and two bags for donations, I am making it a point to give up at least two items per box and anything I haven't used in the last year (or since my last move in 2011). I bought a new bed last year it has one of those real thick mattress, the old sheet sets don't fit so those were the first things to go when I unpacked the boxes. Oh my goodness don't even get me started on towels, I will say half of what I have are in the donation box.
The weather here has been quite rainy most of the week with the stalling of a storm front hanging over Florida for most of the week with temps dropping into the mid 80's for a few days, I managed to squeeze in a trip to the library mid week to pick up a book I had reserved.
