If it's Not One Thing It's Another!
Sunday, October 11, 2020
First the good news...as expected I tested negative for COVID so my runny nose, sneezing & cough were all due to a cold and/or allergies. From what I read of my symptoms I was pretty sure it was just a cold.
Second thing (and not such good news), walking back with Fletcher I tripped on a rock and fell! Hit my head so there is a bump on my forehead and fell on my right arm that started to really hurt when I used it. So off to urgent care again! Long story short x-rays show a very tiny crack or fracture of my elbow but they don't do anything about it. Dr. told me to not wear a sling, maybe compression bandage would help. (have an ace bandage on now and it does help), don't use the arm too much and monitor it. She just called and said she did some research after I left and because of the osteoporosis of the RIGHT arm I should see an orthopedist in a week. For now taking it easy; I can walk Fletcher holding the leash in my left arm which I usually do and don't do any strength work. Will figure that out.
I have always been a tripper/faller so that is nothing new. I notice that wearing the mask seems to put my perspective off a little and since I usually wear a ball cap to keep the sun off my face there isn't much clear area. We have skipped personal training for a couple of weeks because of my cold and our trainer is on vacation. Have noticed that when I'm working out with her I'm less apt to trip on something; guess the strength work and balance helps! Go figure.
And now it's time for lunch.
