Doctor Orders Bedrest

My family doctor has ordered bed rest for me.  I must remain in bed except for being allowed to eat and use the bathroom.  This is because the swelling in my right leg is not improving as it should without my legs being elevated.  The goal is that the bed rest will allow the swelling in the right leg to decrease enough to allow a compression stocking to be put on the right leg. 

On Tuesday, June 23, 2009, I have an appointment to see a Vascular Surgeon about the issues with my right leg.  It isn’t known what he will have to say about the matter, but I am hoping he will be able to successfully improve my condition.

Technically, I shouldn’t even be writing this post, because it requires me to be up for a little while.  I wanted to explain why there would not be any post for a while.  As of now, there is no way for me to know when I will once again be able to write another post.  Sorry about that.  Just know that I will do so just as soon as it is allowed by my doctor that I am no longer confined to bed rest.
