The last ten days I have been experiencing a localized soreness in my left calf, kinda like bruising, but without the bruise. Family and friends tell me I may have a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and I will die if I don’t get it checked out. Family and friends seem to exaggerate, but dying is something I do not necessarily want to do, so I agreed to get it checked out.
On Thursday I went to our local urgent care center to get my left calf looked at. I checked in complaining of soreness in the leg, never once did I mention that I thought it maybe DVT. After looking at my calves for about 2 minutes the urgent care physician suggested I go to the emergency room immediately so I can be diagnosed for DVT.
On Friday evening I go to the Emergency Room to get an ultrasound. Three hours later the ultrasound comes back negative and I was discharged from the Hospital. The Hospital would not diagnose what is causing the soreness, because it was not an emergency.
I can’t wait for the bill to arrive. Better safe than sorry.
Music can really change the mood of a household. When the stresses of the day crescendo into yelling and tears it is best to turn on some music. I know in my house just turning on a couple songs can turn sour moods into dancing ones.
I use this playlist I created called “Happy“
I watched Dolphin Tale 2 last night with the family. I am so glad I got to spend the beginning of 2015 with such a cinematic explosion of crap.
At least I was with my family. Love you all.
