WHEW! All is well! I went to the hospital this morning - got registered & sat & waited..and waited...and waited! But that was OK - I had my knitting with me to ease my nerves & it struck up many a conversation during my waiting time! Isn't knitting great for that?
But the ultrasound showed my veins are all good & flowing as they should! Praise the Lord! It didnt feel too good with the technician pressing in on the bruises - but he said all was good. He did say though that it was bruised all the way through - had a technical name - but I was like "HUH?" so he explained that it was a pretty deep bruise causing all these problems.
So I still am to keep it up for the next few days with ice & heat - so looks like Ricky has a few more days of waiting on me - hate that! (hehe!)
No slip-n-slide is going to get me down!!!
Thanks guys for all the prayers & concerns & emails & thoughts - you are all the best!!!
