I had a very long needle inserted into my left hip joint this morning, guided by my Sports Medicine Doctor and ultrasound. It hurt some but it didn't last long.
My Sports Med doc, Dr. Becker, is working in conjunction with my Ortho surgeon, Dr. Chen, and my Neuro surgeon, Dr. Gala, to determine what to do next in my list of multi factors. Today we are trying numbing my unfixed, arthritic hip for eight hours or so to see what effect that has on my back and my mobility.
Since then I have walked briefly at the grocery store, to get a reward latte, in my back yard to pick some flowers and arrange them, I did my daily short version PT, and a mile walk at the park.
The verdict so far is that I am walking more freely, my back is resisting less, and I could actually tie both shoes. I have been taking notes and I will report to Dr. Becker on Monday.Both sides of the kitchen bouquet.

Since I needed to keep moving, I took some yard pics.
The sunflowers aren't great this year, but I do have a few cheery sun faces.
It's much cooler today. I'll take it!
