How ARE You?
Thursday, May 21, 2020
I am doing OK except for back pain. I will have another shot for pain on June 16. Plus I will also be getting a Vertiflex inserted in between L4 and L5 vertebrae to relieve the pressure of herniated discs. Vertiflex is a titanium spacer.
Today I start the procedure of getting a crown replaced. So I will be at the dentist this afternoon.
I am eating mostly healthy. I have had some slip ups. It is easy to slip when you have a spouse who does not eat like you do. Ah, but I must eat healthy! I need to remind myself often.
We also order food to help the restaurants stay in business. Plus I don't feel like cooking every day. Here is the problem with that. Restaurant food has too much sodium! I am sodium sensitive.
Any tips for doing that?
How is your eating during this time of isolation?
My doc changed my meds before the madness began. The new med made my feet swell and my face flushed. I waited it out because of the staying indoors and social distancing. I went last week to the doc and he changed it back. No more swelling, etc. I feel better too.
SO, I am doing what I can to take care of this body. Hopefully the back pain will ease up and I can do things again! It is wearing on me. Other than that, I am improving.
How is your health? How are you dealing during this pandemic? Does it seem the world we knew is gone? I cannot wait to get back to normal living. No masks, no hand washing all the time (just a reasonable time), no sanitizing every surface, etc.
I always wash my hands, anyway, after arriving home from shopping. Just because you never know what germy hands have touched things that you touch. I always wipe my counters in the kitchen, but not with sanitizer, just soap and water.
