Fascinating day..... got out of work to be there for daddio in his battle with the local ER for the classics (weakness, fatigue and the grand set of autonomic dysfunction). After the most blissful 4 hours sitting with the greatest guy in a cavernous room that reminds me of a catacomb (minus the skeletons), we delivered our defense to exit and scurried to freedom.
Being home, resting, and needing to turn my attention to my pup, Pierre, I hatched a plan to go walk and play outside. Lovely spring weather and happy dog lead to happiness until my legs become like felled trees that are nearly impossible to pick up to move my feet one step after another. The muscles in my calves turn to stone. Every stretch of the muscle causes me to walk slower, shorter steps causing a dulled pain that I register as discomfort, but simultaneously feel disassociated from the sensation.
Of course my genetic stubborness leads Pierre and I to the tennis courts where I attempt to stretch it out and do jump rope (childhood..... ).
Needless to say, it has been interesting day. I ended up on couch right after walk, had a few forks of salad and water, then passed out on the couch. Gotta love the normalcy of my abnormalcy
Dysfunction at its best.... at least for today
