Our tele-communcations tower took a direct lightening strike on Saturday. No internet, no phones limited TV. We haven't had a storm in months. But it is back today. Everyone one the island sighed a great sigh of relief.
I have done hardly any work over the last couple of weeks. The pain level in my joints and muscles has got so bad that I have frozen up. It got so bad I actually went back to my old doctor in town. He went into overdrive. Tests, scans, etc etc. But some of the results show that after I had Barmar Forest Virus I caught Ross River Virus and Glandular fever. No wonder I have been a cot case.
There are still a lot of tests to go but one thing he did for me was to get me cortisone injections in my shoulders. There are working a lot better now and as a little bonus my legs are back in action. I was actually able to reach down and touch the floor with no pain. The effect only lasted a couple of days but I am loved every moment of my pain free status at that time.
I would like to finish my quilt but don't want to over do the use of the rotary cutter which makes me feel as if my shoulder will fall off but it is all sitting there and tempting me.
So I thought, maybe just a place mat or two. This one isn't bad.
But it still hurts. Better give that a miss. I have a Kogin class to teach this weekend and with the loss of the internet I have a lot of work to catch up on.
