I didn’t have to make an appearance at parent meetings today. That means I got to go to the ortho. He did the usual injections. I also mentioned my left shoulder hurt and I couldn’t move it past a certain point. Thank you three days of redecorating. I have tendonitis in that shoulder now. He likes to get all techy with me and show me all sorts of anatomical diagrams. I just smile and nod. In the distant past I would have understood it, but now I can barely remember my name. So he did an ultrasound and then injected lidocaine in my shoulder. I gotta say, seeing the needle going in and all was pretty cool. But I’m not your average human being. I remember in high school having to have a barium swallow done (yuck). When I got to school the next day I found my favorite teacher (my bio teacher) and told her how cool it was to watch the peristalsis in my esophagus. Like I said, not a normal human being.
