Two weeks ago one gal in our "Fab Five" group twisted her left ankle attempting to put her mom's wheelchair in the car. Two days ago she had excruciating pain in her right knee. Turns out she is bone on bone and arthritis. (Lynn is in her early 50's and ortho wants her to wait 10-15 years for knee replacement. Personally, I think she needs a second opinion.). She just got a cortisone shot that should kick in within two weeks. She is currently using crutches and was fitted for a knee brace that she needs to wear. Then there is me. Out of no where, my left ankle began swelling making it painful to walk. I did go to ER yesterday to rule out a potential blood clot. Doc is puzzled what is causing the swelling but is optimistic with icing, elevating, ibuprofen, etc., the swelling should go away on its own. If not, I need to have fluid drained out under ultrasound guided needle biopsy.....ouch! Thank goodness for downtown with casinos next door to each other and we see lots of vodka being consumed. Regardless, we always make the most out of every Vegas trip no matter what!
