I missed it all

As I wrote about yesterday, my leg is in some pain. What I didn’t realize that the combination of seeing the doctor yesterday and having him work on my leg followed up by 5 hours of standing at a Foo Fighters concert was going to render me basically crippled.

I woke up this morning around 5:30 to the most severe pain I’ve felt in years. My leg was absolutely screaming at me. I woke up the wife and had her get me an ice pack. I iced the leg for a while but didn’t really feel any relief.

I spent about 2 hours sitting at my desk trying to get some work done. By the end, the pain was unbearable. We grabbed some lunch and then I crashed out on the couch for a 2 hour nap. I then went upstairs and moved in to bed where I would spend the remainder of the day and evening.

This weekend there were 3 WordCamp events that I would have loved to have gone to. Not all of them, but any one of them. 2 of them were relatively close being in Utah and Oregon. But, when I was trying to schedule it all, a buddy’s wedding today and Foo Fighters tickets last night meant that I wasn’t going to be leaving town. Then, instead of going to the wedding, I spend the evening in bed.

This sucks.

I plan on another visit to the doctor on Monday. I need to start getting well pretty darn quick. There is NO WAY I can tackle Disneyland next week in my condition.

Did I mention that this sucks?

My leg is currently feeling as bad as it did at 5:30 this morning. I’ve iced it several times, took some Advil and have tried to stay off it as much as possible. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
