An Exciting Week

This week brings a lot of new exciting things for me.

It's back on Monday!!!
On Monday, I start my new job in pediatrics! I'm super excited!! Also, Gotham is back.


Theron and I get to go to see the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday. We got some great seats, and I'm excited to yell out at the guys.


Then Wednesday night, I get to get my first MRI.



I saw my rheumatologist last week and she thinks I may have avascular necrosis (AVN) in my left hip. AVN is often caused by steroid use in those of us with autoimmune arthritis. To be honest, my pain fits in pretty well with what I've read described so I'm bummed about that... especially because it could mean more medications, staying away from steroids even more, and any one of a handful of surgeries.

This is not how I wanted to end 2014 and begin 2015.

The nice thing is that I'm working at the med school, so the people I work with will be much more understanding of the issues I'm facing. I'll also have to do a lot less walking, especially since I'm not working on a hill anymore.

I'm excited to figure out if this is for sure AVN or not, more so I can quit worrying about what else it could be.

That's how my exciting week is panning out. What interesting or new things are you up to this week?
