What Now???

Did I tell you about my perfectly executed "tuck and roll"?  Yes, I took a fall a couple of weeks ago while walking with Kaitlyn.  I had their dog Buster on a leash.  He stopped, I didn't.  As Kaitlyn stood there with the baby , I did a nice tuck and roll.  It was a solid 10 she said.  I laid there for minute to make sure everything was ok.  I had a skinned knee, bruised hip, and I do believe a cracked rib.  It's the rib that is still giving me fits.  On top of this my ankles have broken out in blood blisters.   They started out as tiny red dots. The dots grew and darkened to blisters filled with blood.  I broke down and went to the doctor.

It seems that since I failed some blood tests but passed  others, I need a biopsy to confirm that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis with skin complications.  Oh the joys of growing old.  It seems that right now all I have time for is doctor appointments.  I must see a dermatologist to preform the biopsy.  Then, if confirmed, I will need to see the RA doctor.  None of this is in my plans!  My itinerary is already planned and doctors are nowhere on it!
