More hamstring news...

Today I went to a sports medicine specialist because the leg is just not getting better. He gave me some medicine and told me to wait another three weeks. I am supposed to try running in two weeks (1 mile or 2 miles). If I experience pain or if the pain continues into week three, I have to go back for a MRI. This time around, x-rays were taken...no obvious broken bones. The doctor thinks it is a muscle problem; however, if it is still going on in three more weeks, then I probably have a stress fracture. Lovely. When I was there, I wasn't in too much pain. He stretched my leg back and I still felt okay...but now, six hours later, I feel terrible. Oh well.

Okay, that is all I have to say about that for now! Other than dealing with the leg, I am really just hanging in there. School is okay, my students are good this semester, and dad is coming along very well. Last Friday, I really needed to get some work done at the library on campus. Dad was kind of down that day, so I told him to get dressed and go with me to the library. We parked a good distance away and had a nice long walk to the library. Then, we had a cup of coffee and he helped me get my books and check out. He felt great after and had a really good day.

Well, that is about it. I hope my life becomes more exciting soon (not in a bad way).
