Wow. It's Monday again. I swear that was not a full week. Or maybe it was a bit too full--depending on how one wants to look at it.
A few weeks ago I had twisted wrong and popped my hip out of place. The probable good news is that because I work the muscles quite a bit, it took a fair bit to get my hip out of place this time. The definite bad news is that I still managed it AND it hurt like crazy. I was able to get it back in, but that hurt as well, and in spite of getting back on the medications for inflammation and pain, I still managed to wind up some of the problem muscle spots again. I had several really bad days, started to get better, and then had physical therapy on Thursday. The good news is that while the bad spots had gotten tight, they hadn't truly knotted again, which is terrific progress. The bad news is that it still really hurts whether the muscles are "just tight" or "knotted," and physical therapy left me flattened for several days. I should be back to 4-mile walks by the end of the week, so definitely faster recovery time, but it's been a long couple of weeks. Which explains
