I have osteo arthritis and this winter it has hit my left shoulder and right knee very badly. The shoulder is getting better; however the knee pain recently spread up and down the whole leg and is unbearable, even for someone who has dealt with chronic pain (Fibromyalgia and a fractured back) for going on 16 years.
I had some tests done yesterday and the clinic called me at 6 pm to come in for the results. When they call you that quickly and say they have to see you right away you worry.
Anyway, the blood test for clotting came back positive. Now this doesn't mean there IS a blood clot, it means they have to dig deeper. So I spent 6 hours in the ER waiting for an ultrasound test, only to find out I had to wait until this morning. I go in one hour.
What I need prayer for is that my leg is getting worse and all my pain control techniques have gone right out the window. I will have to sit at the hospital for another several hours to wait for the results and I am not comfortable in that atmosphere, and there is no way I can lay down when I need to for the pain. Also, I am not sure what I want from this. If it is positive, it could be serious but they can treat it. But if it is negative I am back at square one.
I guess the big thing for me is that I have a border I need to look after and my busy season is just starting with a wedding cake I haven't finished designing due in mid April and I have three brides I need to meet with regarding receptions/cakes.
I am sorry to draw this out, but if you could just pray that I get some relief soon, and that I won't fall apart from pain and lack of sleep, I would really appreciate it.
