Leg Pain Midnight Strike! I Survived!

The pain in my left leg and ankle is subsiding and the swelling has gone down some.  I don’t know if it’s the heavy dosing of ibuprofen or black cherry juice.  I’ll keep doing both until the damn leg pain is completely cleared up.

Gail got up at 12:30 when I did to see if there was anything she could do for me.  She took the dogs out and went back to bed.  Five minutes laterShiloh (our marginally intelligent German shepherd) started making that “rrrrRRRRRooRuuuummmm!” sound she makes when she has to go outside.  I asked her why she didn’t take care of all her business when Gail had her out five minutes earlierbut she didn’t want to hear it.  I guess there are some things a doggie just wants to do for Daddy.

I sat up until about 1:45.  By then the ibuprofen or black cherry juice (or both) had caused the leg pain to subside enough to where I felt like I could go back to bed.  Which I did.

Raven (our mentally and athletically gifted Border Collie) went with me and waited patiently for me to get into bed.  And before I could get all my covers arrangedshe jumped into bed with me and instantly went to sleepproviding a dead weight on the blankets that still lay in a bunch beneath her.

I eventually went to sleep around 3 or so and got up at 7:30.  I must have slept hardcuz when I waddled into the bathroom and looked at myselfthere was a redsore spot on my right cheek where my hand was and a deep red crease on my forehead that wasn’t there earlier.

And so it goes.  Happy Presidents’ Day!
