I'm so excited!

I'm walking is coming back! I walked to the end of the block and back! Yoo-hoo!

Knee is a bit shaky still, so watching the distance. But every day I go farther! Except today.

Today I hurt! No taper off the solumedol, every muscle hurts.

Thinking is coming back again to, I think! πŸ€”πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ¦ˆ

Pics are my Lilli's for my granddaughter πŸ’• and my friends roses!

Yep. I’m working on my balance issues by taking physical therapy twice a week and then started a yoga class too. 😳 Fingers crossed!

Are you taking anything to help it?

My Neuro cut back on some meds and put me on Tegretol Jackjosh and the 3day solumedol infusion. Hopefully this will help. It seems to. πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ¦ˆ

Well, you would've found me up. My old pup Maggie, needs to go out about that time every morning...which means, I too get up. And since she's a creature of habit, when she comes in, she's ready for her breakfast. Though she goes back to sleep afterwards, I don't /can't. Here's what I have to do today: move 150# of hen feed to the shed, finish a batch of pickles, make two more loaves of zucchini bread and then think about doing my exercises (and maybe do them) so I don't lie to PT when he asks if I have been doing them. I made 7 pints of bread and butter pickles Friday, another batch today, and then I'll start on dill spears with the remaining cukes. Tomorrow, another friend is giving me a dozen ears of corn for corn relish. When gardeners share their bounty, I feel honor bound to thank them! Until I manage to trap and eliminate all the meadow mice and field mice that came up into my raised beds, I can grow only those plants they don't like. Here's that short list of veggies they spurn: garlic, onions, oregano, sage, tomatoes. Here's what they decimated: carrots, leeks, chard, beans, beets, cabbages. This winter, I have to empty out the raised bed boxes, tip them over, and wire the bottoms before refilling. It's too daunting a task to think about until the weather changes. Now to get out and move that feed before the temp hits 80. I'll post separately about PT's effect on my balance, gait, and recovery.

I said nothing about speed. Here's how I do it: I keep a flat nursery wagon on the porch, take it down the ramp to the back of my little suv, drag one bag out of the trunk onto the wagon, haul the wagon to the shed, go into the shed, get the saucer with tow rope out, push that down the ramp there, wrestle the feed sack onto the saucer, go up the steps into the shed, grab the tow rope, pull the 50# up the ramp, wrestle the bag into position against the wall, and repeat for two more. It's why I don't feel as if I have lied when the PTist asks me if I did my exercises. Now I am sipping my cold coffee and getting ready to heat the water kettle for the pickles. But notice that I haven't started that yet!

I need to keep moving. Perhaps it is fear that if I stop I won't be able to get going again. But it's not long bursts of energy anymore. I do a job, then rest a bit, then do the next short job. Little by little...

Don't overdo the walking or thinking?πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ How are you doing? πŸ€—πŸ€”πŸ’•πŸ¦ˆ

πŸ˜‚. Don’t overdo the walking. I’m doing well, but today will be a test...have jury duty today 😩. As there is construction at the courthouse, there will be a fair amount of walking to even get into it. For sure, they won’t want me to be a juror, because after not sleeping all night 😳 and walking forever in the Texas heat (it’s 93 at 6:30 AM and the sun’s not up yet). , my brain will not be hitting on all cylinders. You keep up the good work and I’ll let you know how I survive.
