I can hardly wait to get in the therapy pool. Even though I am taking the day off work I will drive the 10 miles there to get in that 92 degree water and do exercises. I find it so relaxing and always feel better after I do that. Tod... Read more

Apparently my sister is not ready to die yet and she even was eating in the past few days and carrying on conversations with doctors and visitors even asking to go out for dinner. She alternates from being very sick to seeming to rebound and ge... Read more

It is cool again and have the air conditioner off 2 days in a row. No rain predicted so it should be another pleasant day. My therapy pool is closed this morning so instead I will walk around the block and use the recumbent bike before going t... Read more

I was a bit worried I wouldn't be able to get around the block (1/2 mile) before sunset but took a chance anyhow and truly amazed myself by making it in about 15 minutes which means I was able to walk 2 miles per hour. This doesn't sound like m... Read more

I slept an extra 2+ hours this morning. Plan to go to farmer's market to get fresh tomatoes and then on to the gym to swim in the outdoor pool after that. This last week at work was generally good and I think I almost made the quota. It... Read more

I was complaining to my daughter that I am tired of seeing about local murders and fatal car accidents on t.v. She told me not to watch. I just wish they would at least balance the news with some good news for a change. She called me lo... Read more

Slept pretty good considering there were thundersttorms all night. I think I woke up only once during the night. The therapist said I could try sleeping on my side to help (I had been told to only sleep on my back with my knees straight which ... Read more
Eating more but lost lb has not come back...

I think my food choices have allowed me to eat more but stay within my calorie target. One thing I noticed is that my potassium intake one day was over 5000! Most of that was from eating 2 cups of beet greens. Perhaps next time I should eat o... Read more

I am having a snack and snitching some of my tasty lunch. I sort of followed a recipe on SparkRecipes.com but didn't have all the ingredients. It is very tasty. ... Read more

Overall, I feel rested and knees are not quite so stiff. There was some local flooding so I should leave a little early to be sure I am not late for work. I hope to swim in the outdoor pool today at the gym after work. The forecast is 9... Read more

I don't have to leave the house until 5:30 so I decided getting up at 4:30 would be enough time to get ready. All I have to do is Spark, have coffee and breakfast, vitamins, brush teeth, get dressed...hey, it's already 5:00... gotta run!!!! ... Read more

I hated getting up this morning when the alarm went off at 4:59 a.m. I did 5 minutes of bed exercises before the alarm went off and I think that helped my general overall achiness. If I am to get in 10 minutes on the recumbent bike I had... Read more
Slept in again but knees are stiff....

I apparently was sleeping with my knees bent so this morning walking is difficult. I am supposed to sleep on my back with my legs straight which has been making it hard for me to sleep. Hopefully this stage of healing won't last more than a co... Read more
