One Down, Two to Go...

I kinda wish I needed more than 2 more fluoroscopy-guided injections in my knee (synvisc).  The doctor was way too cute.  And, nice!  ...and then he touched me.  oooooh-la-la!  And, did I say how cute he was???  I tried to find his photo on the UW website, but I cannot remember his name.  Can you believe that?  I must have been too busy swooning when he introduced himself.  {sigh}

Okay...settle down...deep breath.  

I did not take photos (though when I told him that I had contemplated it, he thought I was quite funny).  But, you know, I didn't even get to watch the procedure, cuz I was laying flat on my back.  

I was a bit nervous this a.m....fear of the unknown, I suppose.  Once I was there and he explained everything and I asked a gazillion questions (just to hear him talk), I felt much better.  He numbed my knee...deep numbness.  I felt the prick and sting.  After a few minutes, he told me he was injecting the synvisc and I got all excited cuz I couldn't feel anything.  It was a very simple and painless procedure.  YAY!

I had to stay for ~30 minutes after the procedure...just to make sure that I did not have an adverse reaction.  Then, he released me.  Ya know...told me I could leave.  {grin}

I'll try really hard to get his name next week and then I can post a photo.  I might even take my camera and ask the tech to take photos.  

They have valet parking at the great is that!!!

I ran a few errands before I came the pharmacy & credit union.  Then, I went to Hobby Lobby where I selected a few Kona solids for Riley's turtle quilt.  Avocado and Paprika...YUMMY colors! 

For the rest of the day, I have nothing planned.  Just going to take it easy and do some finishing work.  I need to bind the rest of Janer's quilt and the other placemat for the placemat quilt swap.  And, I need to finish quilting the rest of the baby blush quilt....then I can put the binding on that and work on finishing it.

Glad everything went smoothly and you had some nice eye candy to ease the pain, lol. Those solids are perfect with your fabric, that is going to look nice.

Ah, yes. Gorgeous doctors. I'd love to bring my dermatologist home and tuck him under my bed. He's so adorable! I don't envy you those injections but it sounds like it all went went well. Now the question well is it working for you??

I just love that turtle fabric. So very, very cute.

I've been running in 20 different directions lately. Big changes going on around here. I made a huge post on Snippets if you're interested. But I'm so happy, I can hardly stand it.
