I'm dropping in to say hello!
Thursday, March 27, 2014
Well. I have lived through the month of March and things haven't changed much. Shingles spread to my other ear, of course. So the second one is working its way out of me. I've been taking meds every day for the Bell's Palsy... its getting better, but I can't believe the pain that I still feel when I touch my face. It's ridiculous.
I have a follow up on 4/2 and a mammogram (BLAH!) so I will ask him how long the pain in the cheekbone and cheek flesh and chin and temple area is expected to last since I am now off the meds I was provided. I might have to hit the meds again. More blah!
I cleaned the oven yesterday and today. I took the first layer off and then let the Easy Off sit all night and really put my head in an oven this morning... but not in a suicidal way. LOL
Monday and Tuesday I helped my friend Karrie get her house buttoned up and moved. We drove around and dropped off her Xfnity box and junk like that. We had dinner that night and I paid as it was a celebration of them leaving... and little Evan was there to tell us when it was time to go! Tuesday I got stuck carrying the couches out to my trailer with Kevin as they forgot to call someone else to help. So I was in my therapy boot moving a sectional couch that I bought from them. (My living room will be the laziest place to hang out in all the land!!)
I've ridden my bike a few times for minutes or so. I've upped my speed to 20+mph, but I can't do it every day. My ankle already hates me and still has not healed all the way. The side of my foot is entirely bruised, but I have been wearing that boot (unless I'm just schlepping around the house). It kills me to walk because it puts my hips so uneven, but I have finally found one of my boots that is a perfect height... it's just not BOOT WEATHER here anymore. Well, we have a few days like yesterday where I could wear a knee-high boot with my therapy boot to Wal-Mart. But then it kills my hip again.
Its a vicious circle and I am seriously exhausted every day. I even tried dark roast, fully caffeinated coffee today... and fell asleep 30 minutes later. That's when I forced myself to stick my head in the oven and get it CLEAN!!!
No pictures to share at this time... but I may soon. Oh, and I just keep losing and gaining the same 5-8 pounds over and over. I have GOT to get back to walking again... without that boot, so I have ordered a hard plastic sock-like cast and it should be here Monday. I'll just be careful until then or wear my Harley riding boots. They are heavy, but they are ankle-stabilizers, for sure!
Peace, Love and Thanks for the Positive Vibes... I feel them!
