Minimal pain Monday

Monday, April 15, 2013

First off I just can't imagine the day the boston people are having and all the marathoners from all over the world. My heart goes out to them all. I just can't imagine. Terrifies me.

So today went to the hospital for blood work, was an hr wait and then back to home, had gf breakfast and then off to massage. He did myofascial release and started on my upper back as told him I can't lay on my back without wicked pain trying to get my upper back and head down on the floor/table etc. So did this stretching that hubby can probably mimic at home to help me get looser for that. Then he started stretching my hips, knee omg I didnt know that it could move in so many ways. But felt good a few twinges. by the time he was done my back of my right knee almmost was on the table like my L - when he started he could put his fist between the table and the back of my knee!
It is 9 pm and still feeling good. I have a bit of tightness in my upper back but will stretch and that may be enough - going to go do my physio exercise now.

I hope I sleep better again, last night wasnt so grea, but was mostly hot flashes. Hubby said he hasnt slept well I think we are too hot, so taking the duvet off and just putting the quilt.

    I didn't sleep well last night either due to arthritis but plan on it tonight. At this time of year it's so hard to figure out what to put on the bed.

    A good night's sleep can make all the difference. Now, if we could just get rid of this cold, dark, wet, drizzly, grey, damp, rainy weather, we'd be all set! :)

Sleepy but good friday

Friday, April 12, 2013

Dads assesment was 2 hrs but we weren't called down or asked. I did go down to get laundry out of the dryer and she said hi and he introduced me. But that was it, so not sure what he will get or even be able to apply for. We will find out some after she sends in the paper work.

Didn't do a lot today, we got groceries, did my exericses, some laundry, walked dog a few times, and now going to go exercise and then go bed. Even though it said i got more sleep, I know it wasn't good as I remember waking so much and just so tired today. Pain started about 4 am so that wasn't good.

Highlight of my day was a notice from sparkpeole that my page had been chosen as sspark people motivator! WOW what an honour and wasn't sure what ever for. I want to thank all the spark friends that have clicked on that link on our pages and made that possible. makes me want to do even better. HUGS and what great friends you all are, I can't imagine I would have still been here had I not made such great supportive friends.

HUGS and sleep well.

    Congrats that's quite an honor! emoticon I'm wondering is your dad a veteran? if so he's entitled to so much and even if he's got medicare he's entitled to a lot, just depends what info he gave and hopefully he's not like my dad and said he didn't need help.

good physio apointment

Thursday, April 11, 2013

HI all, had a pretty good day today, Had to wait nearly 20 mins to get into my physio apt which was absurd, don't schedule so many at once and give a bit more one on one. anywaaaaaay. lol
She was very complete in questions asked and listening. then she got me to lay on my back with ice, and heat on my knee with it up in one of those triangle wedges for 15 mins. came back and did a lot of holding my heel and pressing on my knee, and pushing my knee down till it was tight in back of calf. Actually hurt but felt good if that make sense.
Told her I am scare of surg. cos so weak and how bad my back is and to do the pre surg. ex. hurts my back, can only imagine when my knee hurts 100 tmes more. she said we will work on core, and legs and you will get stronger.
She gave me 3 exercise to do 2x day at home. I was talking to the receptionist who is my age and said worried to go to physio cos then if I get a call for surg. have no physio left. Anyway. will go once a week for bit then will learn it all and go less and hope that this works.
I also asked about wanting to do upper strength said do any that dont hurt and or don't lean forward at all or back too far. So okay will try again.
Also told hubby I am holding him accountable to make me do these 2x day lol he said not me, I said yea cos if I dont the recovery will be worse and way longer and you dont want that any more than I do. lol
besides my back is so sore, I only want to get it better as it can.
Okay off to get the dishes done and lol go do my exercises.

    I am finding that as my core strengthens my balance is getting better. I think you are on the right path, just going to take a long time, just stick with it, the way to look at it is at least you can have surgery!!!

    Your core muscles will help your back once their stronger Cinders- keep Jamie in mind too, posture will help enormously.
And If you need your butt kicked to get the exercises done you know where to come emoticon emoticon

Hope the exercises soon make a difference, but be prepared for the long haul- look how long it took my shoulder to heal!

Have a great weekend! emoticon

Totally tired Thursday

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I am so tired and frustrated. Last night was better pain wise still there but was able to at least get comfortable enough to lay still, and what happens but hubby has one of those nights where he snored and snored, I prodded him 2x, told him to roll over once, and then gave up. Then Allie woke me up at 6:03! Holy frig come on dog, you go out at 11 pm or 2 am when hubby goes to bed. I called her she came up but only laid in the hall till 6:15, and I was getting so angry with the noise beside me, the dog crying I gave up and got up.
Well for once, less pain laying down. Boy was I ever limping so am doubly glad physio startss today to see if we can loosen that hamstring. I am sure that is part of it cos my leg wont lay flat if I am on my belly, my knee wont go flat so yea this has to be all pulling at the butt, and hence the back. So hoping!
Rain here today, but that's okay I have plans and nothing is going to stop my plans. I am going to physio, then on way home may stop in at Micheals and bed bath and beyond. Going to look for a frame at Micheals and a pillow at bed,b and b. Has anyone used those special ones for between your knees. I am wondering if they stay put better.
Home to finish helping dad and then I hope to have a nap! lol Well seems I shouldn't say that cos those are the days I don't LOL
Okay off to move before I sieze up here and then have some breakfast and get ready for physio! HUGS

    My husband snores like a train. He finally decided to wear those Breath Right nose patches as I convinced him he was killing me and they help some.
