My shoulder is really hurting. Oww.

According to the xray I had a few weeks ago (forgot to mention on here at the time) I have calcific tendonitis. Which, for the uninitiated, hurts like buggery.

Currently having a flareup and it's making everything seem like harder work than it is.

About a two years ago a good buddy of mine had a mild heart attack. A bypass was done. The he began having problems with his lower leg, where they had taken the vein with which to perform the bypass. At least 3 operations on the leg, I don't know how many times he passed out because they couldn't get the blood thinner dosages right, many months off from work, pain, frustration and more pain.

The docs took his leg off three inches above the knee yesterday morning.

We all about half expected him to not let them take it. He's a very stubborn man, makes his living moving gigantic factory machinery, and the kind you might expect to choose dying over losing a leg.

His wife told me he never said but one word when they presented the scenario to him: Alright.

That's not my buddy. I'm afraid he's giving up.

Very mild irritation for me.
Felt like something was crawling over my foot quite a few times today.
Looked to check for insects, flies, cotton from my trousers.

Eventually sat in the sun and there stuck in my flip flop was a little hair. And it's def mine because it's pink. Thank goodness the sun came out properly and it glinted or I'd have scratched myself raw - it had somehow got twisted round a sequin.

Sorry about your friend Grav. That's a shit deal.
