Progress on so many levels
Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Tomorrow I have a job interview at another library.
I am studying the research about the library and area. I am also preparing questions to counter when they ask me if I have questions.
My husband got to drink ginger ale and pepsi today at rehab, and ate some homemade scotch soda bread. He sat up in a chair, and worked with physical therapy and speech therapy. He was really aching tonight. No wonder. He was using muscles untouched for the last month. Yay for progress.
I am also very thrilled at finally reaching 20 lbs lost again. This time I am pretty sure it won't come back. I can't eat eggs due to allergy. I have food intollerance to wheat and soy. Those things throw out all the cookies and baked goods out of my life.
With Ron in the hospital/rehab, I added more walking to my 1.5 - 2.5 miles walked at work. I may not be doing heavy duty workouts, but I am doing, and it is working. I am still trying to do a little toning, light weights, when I can.
I am making progress, and considering what I have gone through over the last month with my husband's surgery, cardiac arrest, infections, collapsed lung, fevers, dehydration, medical neglect, inability to swallow, etc. I am dealing ok.
One baby step at a time.
Now I have to convince my husband of that.
Imagine his joy when he could finally have something wet to drink, and not just gelatinous.
