MRI Results and a Rough Afternoon

It has been a very long day.

I went for my doctor's appointment at 1:15 pm, and got the results of my MRI on the left shoulder.

After waiting about 10 minutes to see the doctor, he came in and we discussed my general health (I would rate it fair to middling at this point), then got down to business. The MRI came back as normal, with the exception of some inflammation in a couple of places, but nothing that would account for the pain that I've experienced the last two years or so. He told me that he's going to make an appointment with a specialist (one that's already in the works, but could take a maximum of 18 months to get, as they're very much in demand these days), but that in the meantime I should go back and continue my physiotherapy. So that's what I'll be working towards this week, but with the long weekend coming up and Canada Day and everything ahead, might not be 'til some time next week.

From the doctor's office, I went and had some lunch at Tim Horton's, and then went to do some grocery shopping for some veggies and a few other necessities. And, of course, wouldn't you know it but I moved the left arm the wrong way or lifted something too heavy with it or whatever, and *SNAP!* just like that, I had excruciating pain in the left shoulder and down the arm, and my neck started hurting. I drove the car and got home from the shopping, and managed to put things away, and then lay back for a bit and took some pain killers.

Time to start thinking of supper now, though I'm not sure how long I'll be able to stand in the kitchen and make the food. Some water to drink first before anything else, though.
