The Verdict is In!

I went back to my doctor today and guess what?! My MRI showed nothing is wrong with my hamstring. Neato, huh? 

As we sat and chatted he realized that he probably wasn't the best doctor for me, that I needed a sports medicine doctor who doesn't just treat sports issues, but can also look at the whole system to see if something else is amiss. He thought I might need some endocrine testing, maybe some bone scans, you know, whatever. He agreed with me that we are missing something, I shouldn't be this injured. 

I go back and forth with all of my doctor/PT/LMT appts. Sometimes I am doing at least an appointment a week and sometimes, like now, I am just tired of it and don't want to go to any. I got a referral for a doctor who is waaaaaay over on the east side in a Seattle suburb and it's like, seriously, going to take me half my day just to do an appointment so far away. And that's if traffic doesn't suck. 

Life is a little hectic right now. Husband's away on a business trip. My foot/leg are in a giant boot, making getting around, well, just a little harder, and the kids? Well, there is always a million things going on there. I have summer camps to plan, tutors to find, school issues to sort out . . . . 

You know what else is on my to-do list? Plan a summer vacation for us. Anyone just want to tell me where we should go and make it easier for me? The only absolute musts are that it has to have a nice beach and warm water. I almost wish I had more requirements because that would narrow things down a little, no?

Off to school pick-up. Tra-lee-tra-laa!

  1. Well, that's great news about your hammie but frustrating to not have answers, only more questions. I hate going out of Seattle (even n of Montlake cut is out for me) but do have a doc you may want to check into? I will message you separately.
    Regarding vacation...you must be wanting to fly somewhere if you want warm water? Otherwise, I would say CHELAN! I've seen really cheap flights to FL but anywhere on the Gulf is probably nice :)

    1. Oooo, my husband has been saying we should go to Chelan. At least, I think that's where. Maybe two vacations are in order? And yes, the Gulf is awesome. I LOVED Marco Island, FL, my favorite beaches ever!

  3. I am sorry you're in the mystery mode for a diagnosis. I know how much of a pain it is to find the right kind of doctor to help. If you need an after school break Cooper and Iris would love to play with the girls here.
