Unfortunately, after a bit of respite earlier today, the pain in my left calf and knee returned, with a vengeance. I had some plans for the afternoon but the pain sent me limping, holding onto whatever I could get, to my bed. I took another codeine-acetaminophen tablet and a nap and woke still in pain. I made my way back down the hall, bent over and sobbing, wondering if this was it, if it would ever get any better.
Little by little I got up and down, walked as well as I could, worked my way around the kitchen, and the pain subsided enough. I can now get around the house without searing pain. I am hoping that I wake tomorrow over this! Over it!
