Third times a charm...

It's been 2 weeks since my last blog post. It's hard to want to blog when things aren't going well. Due to my shoulder dislocation a couple weeks ago, I was taking 2 weeks off of running. No running + eating horribly = no motivation.

I was going to blog recently about a recipe I made but I'm putting that off for now. I was also going to blog about my birthday on the 11th and also the beautiful flowers I got on valentine's day.  AND...I was super excited that I was going to be meeting up with my Ragnar team last Sunday for a short run (my first one back) and we were all going to go over some Ragnar details!  Well....

As I was waiting for the girls to arrive Sunday morning...I somehow ended up here:


Oh yes, that's right. I dislocated my shoulder AGAIN!! If I'm going to hurt myself, I'd at least like to be doing something fun!  I was just throwing my backpack from the front seat to the back seat.  I just didn't pay attention to the arm I was doing it with. And from the IV, I have a nice painful bruise on my good arm!!

So now my dilemma is surgery or no surgery. I'm thinking of opting for no surgery but I also don't want to dislocate it again!  It's so painful and will also do damage to my shoulder if I keep dislocating it.  I still need to follow up with an Orthopedic doctor so I'll see what he has to say.

And because this post needs cheering up.....here are my Valentine's Day flowers...So sweet! I love them!

  1. Ouch! Sorry to hear about your shoulder. It's always something "minor" that causes most of my major ailments. Get well soon!

    1. I couldn't believe it either Sara! How frustrating it was! And painful. And more medical bills.... ugh.

  4. You poor thing Amanda! Will your shoulder heal on its own if you don't opt for surgery, or will surgery just help you heal faster??

    Hooray for having a nice birthday and getting flowers for V-day!! Hugs!

    1. Surgery would "fix" it faster. It doesn't "heal" on it's own. I would need to do lots of strengthening exercises. But there can always be problems with surgery.
