Health Update Thursday(10/27)

Picking up from last week, there haven't been any changes to report, big or small, which is a little disheartening.

I've calculated that I've been in bed for around 2 weeks now (4 to 5 days before Tom came which was about the 16th of October). Some days when I wake up in the morning, I can move and crawl easily enough, but some days, my pain level is quite high and it's a challenge to even get to the bathroom which is only 5 to 10 feet away from my room.

I've realized that I haven't been doing everything I could be to try to get better, so I'm starting on a diet soon (to be determined), my mom has brought up Johnny the walker so I can keep moving around, and I've taken up to doing the foot bath again a few times a day-Hopefully--HOPEFULLY--these things will work together to get me up and moving again!

I also realized just how deconditioned I really am, so I'm considering on my good days that I'm not in pain, to start doing a little light floor exercising and work my way up. Oh, how I do miss my exercising!

I'm actually quite surprised at how well this post is going because I'm running on 2 hours of sleep since....Tuesday? Yeah, Tuesday I think. My body unwillingly pulled an all-nighter Wednesday night, so needless to say, I'm crashing after this is posted!

I must say, you get A LOT done when you don't sleep.

We are also trying to get me into the doctor sooner then November 11th, which is our next scheduled appointment. They're always booked, so we'll see how that turns out.

I will definitely keep you all updated on everything! Right now however, I'm going to bed O.O

HUGGLES to you my friend.
I hear you about starting to get out of bed some mornings. I'm sad that the water in the pools around here is getting too cold for me to go in and do my stretching and exercising. That is where I really am the most comfortable, and the pool at the hospital costs too much to join (my insurance won't cover that one, only on that is 1/2 hour away and by that time I'm all stiff again).
Follow your docs directions and take care of yourself. Prayers & love always.
