Some good news


 


I have good news to report. The first one is my body is probably 98% better. My legs, ankles and feet look and feel so much better. I just haven't been on the computer as much and just really taking it easy.
The next is, today was the first time in years, that I have been able to stand straight with my knees locked and my arms reaching up over my head. I really like the way my new physical therapist does the deep tissue massage. I was  so proud of myself....I was going around the house to show off. I told him that I have an attainable goal I'm working on; walking without any assistance. And after that....be able to dance once again.

I took a few pictures and a video of my grandson tonight. It's not posted because I was having problems with the sites.
Right now...the weather is freaking out. It's raining and sleeting. I hear we're suppose to get hit with some nasty weather.

I've been up all night again. I still have this cough that won't go away and it keeps me up at nights.
I have a feeling I should just go ahead and end this.................

You've done really, really well, Lisa! Working towards an attainable goal is all you sometimes need. I hope you will end up being able to dance again. End what?

I am so proud of you. Do you remember all the times when I said that I knew everything would be alright? LOL I am so happy for you. I will do a happy dance for you or should I say with you.

I was so happy to read this entry Lisa.  How wonderful that your body is getting rid of all that fluid.  Thank God.  I was so worried for you.
Looking forward to seeing your video when you get it sorted out.

Lisa knew the lasix would help with all your swelling, glad it's working so well for you, now keep your feet propped us as much as you can, it really does help with swelling (edema).  Take care.  Don't overdue because you are feeling better today, take it one day at a time.  Glad you are doing better.
