.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess, and in hopes it might help someone else as I do.I do not pretend nor imatate to be someone I'm not. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. And if there is something in what I write that "offends" you, options; don't read, or realize that this IS real life, and get out of your plastic bubble and learn more about it! God bless you!......
Good morning! I hope all of you are doing well today!
Yesterday seemed to just drag on and on. Dh washed my bed sheets for me and put them back on my bed. That was so nice!
My mom called me to see if I wanted to go with her and my sister for a birthday lunch. I had to decline that offer as well. My lower back, hips and legs aren't doing so well. I'm having a hard enough time getting around here in the house.
My daughter had called my husband and asked what we were doing for dinner. He just ordered subs for us from Cassano's. I was hoping that they would stop by here. They were on their way back from a picnic that her boy friend's work was having. Not very long after the call....here they came! :o) Which of course cheered me up! lol My little man just woke up and was grumpy! lol
Her boy friend is making a derby car so he was out in the garage. I went out to see it. There was my little man helping daddy! :o) Too cute! He was sitting inside the car and helping! He also got a hammer and started to pound on the car! lol My daughter did too, it let out some frustrations! lol Too cute!
I had to come back in because my lower back and legs weren't feeling too good. So, I went to my bedroom to sit in my bed to rest them. Not long after that...they had to leave. I got my hugs and kisses, and even told my daughter's tummy I loved you! I can't wait until she gets bigger!
After they had left, my dh and I was watching Big Brother in my bedroom. My legs started doing their thing again....they started to "ball" up with cramps on me! Yikes! That hurts so bad when that happens! I stretched my legs out trying to make it better. It didn't, but I tried. Then we watched Gene Simmons Family Jeweles. They got worse. Dh asked me if he could do something to help me. It's very different with this, because it's a lot more then rubbing out cramps. But I had him do the best he could and get my upper thighs and my hips. I started to cry and he thought he was doing something wrong. I told him he wasn't and that this is how it is when my physical therapist comes. I felt so much better when he was done! He did help! He sat in my room with me for as long as he could. He really needed to go to bed since he has to get up early for work. He stayed up with me until 11:30! Then he told me that he was just going to be right on the couch and turned the tv off so he could hear me if I needed him! I was so much better after he rubbed my legs for me. I was up for awhile and then about 2:30 I went to sleep.
This morning my physical therapist came and oh boy....Ouchie! So, I got the deep tissue massage and she told me that she doesn't like to make me cry either. I told her that after it is done, it does relieve me of some of the pains, so it's fine with me! :o)
So...all in all, I had a great day yesterday! :o) I love my family so much! And these legs are not going to stop me from everything! It's a personal battle between me and my body! And I'm going to win this!
