One thing at a time..


Good morning!

I've had a pretty good week. Which has lowered the tension and stress levels....which lowers my pain as well. All in all, makes it so much easier.
I'm still sleeping more then my normal. My body must need it.
My new physical therapist has been doing my therapy different. I love it! I can now stand straight and put my arms up over my head and lock my elbows! YAY! :o) I know that I'll reach my goals this year. Too bad that he can't come everyday. But I'm so grateful for what I can do now. :o)

I'm finally over that sinus stuff. About time. lol
My nurse came Thursday and I told her about those chest pains. She wants me to stay on the Lasix and Nitro.and oxygen all the time, instead of when I sleep. She called my doctor trying to get me in to see her sooner then tomorrow. They didn't have anything open until tomorrow! Wow! There is a lot of different colds and flus going around.
She was happy to see that my legs and feet were down from the swelling. They're swell up still but nothing like they did. I just keep my legs up. She told me that this will probably happen for the rest of my life. Geesh!
Nothing planned for today. I'm tired again. Oh well. :o)

Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of the heart.

I am so happy for you that your physiotherapist is making large improvements already Lisa.  The more mobile you can become the more comfortable you will be.
It makes you feel better in yourself...doesn't it?

I'm glad to hear  you are over the sinus stuff and that  you have had a pretty good week.  I wish that physical therapist could be there more often for you.  Hope you have a happy weekend. : )

Yes, that last statement is so true about humor, original, too, I like it.  I m so glad the swelling has gone down in your legs.  I have quite a lot of swelling in my legs all the time so try to keep my legs up as much as possible.  But I do take my walk every day if I can. Which helps.  I bet you will be glad to get through the cold and flu season.  From what I remember of Utah I dreaded that.  Gerry
