I ended up taking Thurs and Fri off last week to stay off my leg for awhile and to let the prednisone do its thing. I can tell some improvement; hopefully it won;t go back after walking around now. I did head to Walmart last night and got a cane. It helps keep pressure off the leg some walking long distances. I was actually able to get ready this morning w/o haivng to sit down once! I did have to prop my leg up occasionally to ease the tingling, but it's not quite as painful as it was. My hip/butt is significantly better.
No plans to spend any money today. I brought lunch w/ me, and I'll figure out something for supper when I get home this evening. I spent $40 at WM last night (cane [$11.87] and food), and that was all I spent since last Wed, so that's good. I was afraid I'd get bored at home and order stuff online, LOL!
I do have to stop off at the dump on the way home to drop off my trash. I had forgotten all about it in the car last Wednesday until last evening. Pee-eww! Temps had been around 90 which did not help. I tried to drop it off this AM, but the were changing out the container (this is a satellite site), and the line to get in was a mile long. So, I will have to do it on the way home, which means no stops anywhere because I have to get there before they close. Major airing out and air freshener is needed in the car. LOL!
