Dear BLF friends🦋,
Bea and I have had to move out of our nice ground floor flat because of the works starting soon so Aria has been quite unhappy and grumpy😾, the balcony will not do it! I said to Bea we have to programme things differently next time but it’s done now!
It has been very hot in Geneva, constantly in the 30s, ☀️and although we are slightly out, it is very polluted, I can see planes flying low. 🛬🛫✈️
For the last week we have had incredible storms over the lake ⚡️⚡️💦💦in the evenings but it doesn’t seem to cool down the air.
I am going out early morning, sticking to pavements in the shade 😃 sorry for natural Vit D but better taken in supplements if we have this global warming!!
I am following up with my lung care routine, it is tedious but I thought I am so grateful I have those meds because I wouldn’t have coped with this heat (seawater nasal wash 2 to 3 x a day, Salbutamol nebs 3 x a day, my 3 inhalers, oral steroids..) as well as 30mn exercising slowly in the pool a day if I can manage it. I have so far for 10 days in a row. I must say it is nice and refreshing.
Regarding the prednisone, because I have been told to taper down, the old pains are coming back, I have talked to the GP who told me to stick to 10mg for a month now, then start tapering down again by 1mg a month till I get to 5mg.
I don’t know if I will ever get to 5mg. I don’t think I have ever been 😃
So extra physiotherapy because my ankles, calves and knees are painful..I need to work on those hamstrings etc which take a lot of oxygen and are demanding in lung disease. I just take paracetamol now before going out so I can walk to town.
Sharing all those boring factors with you, I expect you all have your aches and pains.
As usual listening to health imagery and repeating my affirmations has been a great help.
Anyway on a more positive note I saw that beautiful statue on my visiting days but I forgot the name of the sculptor!
Have a lovely day my dear friends! 🍀
