Gingerly I step
Friday, February 01, 2013
This morning I carefully carefully gently did some of my physical therapy stretches without weights and being careful regarding my neck and pulling my arms. My shoulder/neck still hurt some, but I was able to get through work yesterday no problem.
I am all set for the outpatient procedure on the 15th, as I went to the doc yesterday. I need to go for bloodwork. Unfortunately, the prednisone pushed the scale up according to the doctor's scale. Rats.
A couple days ago I started with a facial breakout again, then when it was really bad yesterday and the day before my back was pretty bad too. I am not sure if there is a correlation or coincidence yet since I am still exploring how to alleviate the rash/breakouts. I may have let some wheat slip in somewhere since last Thursday before the breakout started. I am being more vigilant now.
Last night, we had a date night and went out to eat. I am proud to say I only ate half of my meal, except for the salad, and brought home the leftovers for a meal for today. I also only had about 1 square inch of the garlic bread that is so hard to resist.
Little baby steps. one little step at a time. One little day at a time. One decision at a time.
My blood pressure yesterday was the best it has been in a long time~!
Today, my other cat, Pumpkin, allowed me to hold him about 4 minutes. that is a record. Then he realized what he was doing and jumped down! Peaches is such a better lap cat, but I hope that eventually Pumpkin will calm down enough to want to be a lap cat.
