Merry Christmas

Thursday, December 25, 2014

HI all, Merry Christmas!!!! Had a good evening with the kids and grands. However, I must have done too much to help hubby as I can barely move my knee and was so sore by 9 pm and pain meds weren't helping much. Don't find those do. So went to bed, slept good till 5, now rolling back and forth in chair to move my leg. I have to get my physio done today. I did them yesterday but probably tried to up my reps too fast. anyway.... quad by knee is really hurting. Going to try ibuprofen as the hydromorphone doesn't help much.
Today is dd, hubby , dad and us up here for supper. Glad all tidying up is done, hubby moved all the reno stuff into the bathroom area and boy it looks good now. lol granted has to all come out for him to work again.
So Merry Christmas to all, have a safe, happy, healthy day!!! ENJOY!

Informative, discouraging but yet a total learning physio apointment

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

So yesterday I went to physio, a diff. one as my girl is on holidays. Ironically it was the brother of my best friend in high school and university, who I haven't seen since 1976. He looked so much like Nancy. Anyway.... he said where are your exercises, gave the sheet to him and he said that's all she has given you.... we will get you moving. You are a week behind where you should be. I kind of wondered as I didn't see much difference in this week, still having issues with bend on bed, all I do is slide once I get it up there. He did all the quad ones and said you have NO muscle in that quad, he got me to do the straight leg lift and I can do it but he cant feel a thing. I am not super heavy, and have done exercises all the past year and walked tons. I was very discouraged but also said I have muscle issues and nerve problems. So he gave me stuff and then got me to do 5 of each, hubby was there to watch and learn. OMG OMG ............. THe one you may know stand on stair, put operated leg up on phone book on next stair and BEND forward, knee over foot, BEND, BEND, OKAY BEND MORE.......... I got 90 degrees on 4th one. Which is good cos now we know how far I have to bend and lift my upper leg to get there. the worse one for me pain wise is still the knee up on bed. I don't know what to do to stop sliding back once I get there, however I do have to wrap the sheet around my ankle and pull. I feel such pain then.
I also said I don't know fi the meds are helping. I have minimal pain other than when doing exercise. He said take them before exercises so you can try harder. I think it is pain in a few but it is that tightness that I feel. Still swollen but said since I was 3-4 years swollen that may take awhile. Anyway.......... whew.
Very glad I saw him, ( he retires year end) glad he worked me, gave me harder stuff to do, I know the girl I go to wont push that hard. Perhaps that is why she sent him to me, lolhe said coming back next week to see me. I said she said one this week and she wasn't back til jan 7th. He said NO way, you need to be checked, no. call in am, and tell them you MUST an dif they cant ask to speak to me directly I will fit you in. So may get a painful birthday present.
Just wish my shoulder wasn't bothering me so much feel as if I can't concentrate as that is paining so much. I just hope that I don't have some strange muscle thing going on, but not worrying about that. My goal is to tackle these exercises and have hubby feeling the muscle to see if it moves, hold my foot down in one, help coach on the stair one. Said my walking is good which I am glad for.
Anyway an hr physio took over 2.5 hrs but am so thankful for it. I feel as if I am now getting some proper hard exercises that will get me moving. whew.... now to take a pain pill. hubby will be up in an hr. lol

Other news, the kids always come here Christmas eve, used to be late when the were kids, then was 8 pm or so with their others, then when Thomas and Eva were smaller, dil insisted was too late as they are fussy. So now that they are bit older, hubby said 5:30 well she said to daughter 5:30 I want the excitement to continue on so when we come from mums party at work we can go there at 3. I told hubby what dd said, he said NO. I wont be ready and I want it in early eve. They are old enough to stay up some, we have a mickey xmas taped, they will ge their special gift from us... so then ds texts, Lisa ( dd ) says you are super busy and stressed and I work till noon and come help you to make this go smoother and earlier. Hubby texts back not sure what you can do to help, I want to go shopping ( even with hubbys stress he loves to go shopping for me xmas eve( go figure!) I have to clean house, and get reno stuff moved. not really anything you can help with. so will see you at 5:30. Ds says if you need my help call... okay see you at 5:30. So figure dil isn't going to be happy. Hubby says it is the one thing we ask, we don't say boo when she wants xmas at her parents and never do we see them boxing day as it is her birthday and she spends it with family. he said that is the one tradition and there is no reason now to be that much earlier. I just wonder if she wants to get the kids home. then Thomas told lisa ( dd) we are going to nana and pepes for supper, dil said no not supper. She knows that every year we have traditional meat pie ( Acadian ) meatballs, veggies, cheese etc. and I told her hubby was doing it all.
oh well that's fine, dd will be there and all will be fine as dil is fine once she gets here, but seem every year this is an issue. Tomorrow hubby was making most od xmas dinner, and wanted to take it to dd, along with me and dad. I said why, that is more work to haul all the food and us. so yesterday he agreed we can have it here, but not sure where we will sit as renos are tstil taking over dining room. Whatever with it on our laps? would like a tv tray for dad. Me still very little appetite so not worried at all. Am wondering about my appetite but oh well after xmas if I can get in to dr.
So going to help hubby as much as I can, and just enjoy my babies and family. They are all great kids even dil who is just stubborn like her father in law LOL
Merry Christmas all and have a great holiday!
HUGS emoticon

    The new physical therapy guy sounds great!

It seems like there is always some kind of snafu when you have holidays to plan but you always have a great attitude and I know you will be the peacemaker and weather the storm.

Merry Christmas, GF!

    It sounds like you're doing the best that you can, dear Cindy. I've thought of you so much these last weeks and then some! I hope that they can figure out what's wrong with your leg muscles. That has alot of bearing on your physio, I would think. It sounds awesome that your walk is so good! Mine still needs to get find-tuned! emoticon We were told that we won't supposed to walk like we had a peg leg! One week and each week ahead will be showing us how this all is paying off. My DH heard that it's one year that we do this diligently for life. And then faithful the rest of our lives, with doing this and that. I know that we feel start feeling more active when we heal more. I can't wait to get in on some good walking. I love that feeling! And I missed it forever! I've had the knee pain for years and have tried walking and biking anyway, through the pain. You know the story! We're just so overjoyed that we did this! Oh ya, you and I are so happy! emoticon Merry Christmas to you and I hope that 2015 is Merry and Bright for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

any ideas with meds

Saturday, December 20, 2014

So I finished my meds for my belly and feel no better. Trying to figure my belly ache, nauseous feeling, just general malaise. Not taking ton of meds, 6 Tylenol a day to most for the past few days not even my hydromorphone. But I don't normally take meds so perhaps that is too much for my body. I peeled back label on Tylenol and overdose symptoms are nausea, stomach pain, and loss of appetite. Not vomiting but other especially appetite and just blah. we are hoping to go out as I said but have to see how I feel. Making me kind of nervous don't like internal stuff that I can't figure. Will stop at pharmacy and ask their opinion. anyway knee not too bad, had hubby help push my foot back a bit to get bend, we went really slow, maybe 1/4 -1/2 inch.so today a good knee day funny belly but at least not vomiting. Hubby will bring my tomato cage tree up and we will do that this eve or tomorrow. Hugs all have a super day...

    I would see if I could do with less Tylenol. Talk to your doctor about this and see what he says.

    My daughter can't take any Tylenol products they make her vomit, or very nauseous. After her last surgery, they gave her a different pain killer and she was so nauseos and after a few days kept vomiting her food up. Found out what they were giving her had Tylenol in it. Now this was on her chart and her doctor new ad still prescribed it.

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Morning started out good, now noon and am getting that strange, sudden belly ache, then feel nauseous and mouth tastes weird. This only started since post surgery but no idea why it is still bothering me. My belly shots have been done and still not well. so later we are going to the library, I am going to bring walker and go then hopefully also to grocery store for a bit. I am not sure I can do both but can wait in truck after a bit. Hubby getting ice ready going to rest for bit see if I can settle my belly. hope all having good day
