I'm still limpin' around while I mourn the loss of my favorite cap. I realized after I posted last time about my knee that I didn't tell y'all about losing my FAVORITE cap.
I got that cap in 2004 on a trip to Terlingua. It was green, cotton, and had Terlingua and little crosses on it to depict the Terlingua Ghost Town. I wore it every time the top was down. I wore it all year round. Heck, I wore that cap BEFORE I had a convertible.
And it was sitting on the dashboard where it always sat. No different than any other time the top was down and it was dark. And then, WHOOSH! It's gone on an ill wind! And I miss my cap, Dahmmit!
My knee? Nothin's broken, but I already knew that. The Doc doesn't think I tore the ligament either. He wants me to keep takin' 800 mg of ibuprofen 3/day for swelling and 50 mg of Ultram up to 4/day as needed for pain [but so far I've only needed 3/day] and to come back and see him in 2 weeks. I'm not wrappin' it 'cause he said to do any good I'd have to use 4 6 inch bandages and wrap from ankle to groin. No Thanks. I'm just taking it easy for now and staying away from uneven ground and stairs.
Hey, at least it took my mind off my collarbone for a while. And BTW, I'm taking 600mg of Calcium + Vitamin D 2/day now to help those bones and joints.
Thank you to all of you for your well wishes. Pretty soon my luck will turn and I'll break this run of accidents.
