A Little Forgetful
As I have written in my first blog, I thought that it was in 2000 when I first went seeking info. and on top of that I thought it was my right hip bothering me more. Well yesterday, after dropping my oldest daughter off at dance, we rushed back to the other side of town to pickup some more office notes about my very first visit with the ortho. so I could fax to the doctor in Boston. On the way home I was reading through the reports, it was interesting to have my memory jogged like that. I thought I would remember my visits. But I didn't as well as I thought. First it was actually my left hip bothering more at the time. And when my mother and I went to see the two doctors, the first doctor, I guess, mentioned something about the procedure, which I can really only remember something about bone and surgery and correcting the problem to make me feel better. I honestly can't recall much except he was referring us the ped. ortho. doc. And what i remember from that visit was he thought I had multiple epipyseal dysplasia, wanted x rays of my knees and I couldn't take celebrex. But after reading his notes he wanted my knees x rayed to confirm his diagnosis. I never did get those x rays because I must have started back to school and just got busy. And plus there wasn't anything that could be done or that is what came across to me at the time. And now for the the really funny forgetful part...I didn't see these doctors in 2000 but 2002. How does one forget something like that. I have no idea. But let me clue you, it is embarrassing. And I have been thinking a lot about this forgetting and sort of came to conclusion, that I must deal with the present and deal with the hurt as it happens and then get on with my life once I feel "normal". I must admit that reading the office notes is kind of interesting. Now that I am up to date with the correct facts i feel a bit goofy for forgetting. I suppose this scenario could be something like having morning sickness that lasts for the first 5 months of pregnancy or giving birth naturally without an epidural, and then forgetting about it and doing it all over again.
