The neurologist and attempting to rest...
I saw the neuro doc today for my usual nerve block injections. I mentioned what the chiropractor said about my cervical spine, and the neuro ordered a cervical MRI to see more clearly what is going on. I had that migraine last night, so those ... Read more
Secret swamp, kayaking in the fog, and rest
Early morning today. My niece, Tigan, is in town for a wedding, so Jeremy and Tigan and I went kayaking this morning. We kind of got a slow start with loading the boats and gear, but we finally got situated and underway. We intended to launch... Read more
The doctor, the vet, and lunch
I called the doctor this morning, and they got me in at 10:30 today with the NP. She sent me for xrays, to rule out any kind of fracture, which they did. She did not give me any restrictions, though she did say 10 miles was probably too much. ... Read more
I need shackles!
I was doing well with staying off my bum ankle, until... Walking to the chiropractor and back, and an hour walk with the dog. I think I am going to break down and call the doctor tomorrow. Usually I would just wrap a sprain and wait it out, bu... Read more
My brother, Jeremy, and I went kayaking on Lake Erie this evening. It was warm enough to forgo wetsuits, but cool enough to keep almost all the motorboats off the water. That is one of the things I like best about going kayaking off season. W... Read more
I need to pace myself
Still dealing with the gimpy ankle. It is bruised halfway up my shin, still purple and swollen, but I can walk on it. I guess it isn't myself I need to rein in, but Cooper. Yesterday he hardly walked at all due to the rain, but today was anot... Read more
Sprains do take a long time to heal. I know this. But patience with limited mobility is not my strong suit. Sigh. Still swollen. Still dark purple. It occurs to me that the bruising is exacerbated by the fact I am on warfarin for a clottin... Read more
Retrieved my dog
I was lonely last night without my dog, but my ankle was a little better this morning for the rest. I took advantage of being dogless this morning to run errands. Went to Hallmark, the discount store, the credit union, and returned my cans and... Read more
An actual rest day...
With a sprained ankle I am not out walking or running miles and miles. I think this is the first truly low activity rest day I have taken in months. I hate it! I want to be out in the cool Fall weather walking my dog. My niece walked him for... Read more
That effin' hurts!
I walk a lot, and overhear many snippets of conversation in passing. No context ever. But I have noticed that the F word gets used a lot in casual conversation. When did this come about? I thought swearing was cool for about 6 months as a so... Read more
Another rainy day...
But I would say it was not a lazy day. I had coffee with mom and dad, then came home and walked Cooper, followed by almost an hour on the bike while I reread a book. (I do that a lot. If it was good enough to finish reading the first time, I ... Read more
Lazy, rainy day
It was overcast and drizzly most of the day. My various forays into the great outdoors with the dog were mostly short ones, as he despises rain. I did get on the bike for 90 minutes while I read though, so I was not a total slug. Tomorrow is ... Read more
Sometimes I need to just stop and remember all the things I have to be grateful for in my life. I have a tendency to let small frustrations escalate in my mind until they become overwhelming, making me forget all the wonderful things and people... Read more
So, the nurse called and said she wouldn't make it today, but might tomorrow. I guess I changed my plans for no reason. Sigh.
I did get the results of my last blood test, and I don't have to get more done for a month. Yay! I was getting... Read more
The visiting nurse called and said she would be here in the early afternoon on Saturday, so I made arrangements with mom to move our normal Saturday lunch to today. No problems. We had hamburgers (no buns), sautéed squazinni, sautéed mushroo... Read more
