Today has been a good day. We had nice temps today the highest that I saw on the computer gadget and on my phone was 59 degrees. Took Shadow for a walk for an hour I had to put on my brace after 40 minutes of walking. I did 20 minutes of knee strengthening and stretching and it felt good. I also did 15 minutes on the stationary bike as a part of the knee strengthening program and had just a small amount of pain. I put ice on my knee when I was done doing the bike and after my walk as it advises to do if there is any discomfort. Spent the rest of the day with my two youngest and had alot of fun and talked a lot.
I received a call from my nurse and to find out the results of my MRI I have to make an appointment with the doctor I told her that I would have to call back since I have changes in my coverage, so have no idea when I will be able to see the Dr because of this. My knee is feeling better now though it doesn't feel as weak as it did a few days ago. Tomorrow my daughter and I go to IBM for a job orientation tomorrow for about 2 1/2 hours. We will be doing a lot of walking as it is a huge facility. I'm going to bring my brace with me just in case I need it.
I did have improvement in my shoulder as of today it hasn't improved any further. It really bothers me bad when I am lying down so my sleeping hasn't been so good.
I also received a call today for my nerve block injections. Workmans comp finally approved the injections she was calling to make an appointment for my nerve block injections that I will get in my neck. They have one for Friday as I have to have my next one exactly a week from when I have the first one poses a problem as I am in training the next Friday. So I couldn't schedule the appointments until I find out what my schedule would be. I may have to wait to get them once I am out of training. I was hoping to get both injections before job training had started.
