Hello everyone!

It’s a beautiful late summer day in the Midwest.  Warm, but nice.  I would love to be on the deck of our favorite local establishment over looking the Mississippi River.  Sipping on a margarita.  But I’m not.  I just don’t want to go while I still have a darn walker.  It’s awkward.  Once I graduate to a cane though…watch out! 🙂  I’ll also be glad to be rid of the walker because I’ve developed calluses on the palms of my hands!  That happened last time too.  Your hands hurt from the walker for a while, then blisters and calluses.  Very attractive…sarcasm intended.  I don’t know how those old gals do it when they must depend on a walker 24/7.   Anyway, I wish I was out enjoying dinner and a cool beverage and the river view instead of sitting at home.  Cabin fever sucks.  But I had a long afternoon and I’m done for the day.  Plus, I doubt the margarita would mix well with the pain meds I’m still taking. Or would they? heehee

Physical therapy was rough today.  But again, it’s all in the name of progress.  Which I continue to make.  Yeah!!  After PT I went into the office for a while.  I had a big to-do list that I didn’t get completed.  That’s a bummer.  But I did enough that I could email myself what I had done, and then complete it at home over the weekend.

Good news!  I slept through the night last night!  For the first time in a very long time.  I some how got comfortable enough that pain didn’t wake me.  And my bladder didn’t wake me! (TMI, sorry) I woke up at around 7:00 a.m. when the dog decided it was time.  I was confused for a moment because the sun was up and it wasn’t the middle of the night.  I’ve spent most nights laying awake or in and out of sleep with pain and discomfort.  And I’ve gotten up to go to the bathroom at least once, if not twice, each night.  Side affect of meds I hope and not a new trend in aging!  So yeah…very grateful for a night’s rest.  Helped my mood if nothing else.

That’s about it for today.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Remember to find me on Facebook too.
