I don’t know how long it’s supposed to take for the rehab sessions to help but three of them have just about put me under. I think it’s as much getting ready for them as anything. It wears me out to take a shower, dry my hair and get dressed. At that point, I’m ready to go back to bed but I have to go and do my thing for close to an hour.
Well, I didn’t today. I had a bad day yesterday. Cuz came and mowed the lawn. I about used up all my energy feeding the Catz. I did manage to take some pictures but I won’t post them yet because I haven’t even looked at them to see if they are worth posting.
DD had called earlier but I just let the phone ring since I hadn’t started eating yet. While I was eating, Cuz came in for a short visit. After she left and I finished up, I called DD and she talked/I coughed for about 45 minutes.
DS1 sent a text (he’s been very good about texting me since the visit) with a picture of what my granddaughter had created for their meal.
He said it was vegetarian Stromboli. Looks good to me.
Worn out with coughing (my rib cage is still sore), I started taking cough medicine again. I don’t know if it helps or not. I still cough. Maybe marginally less.
Last night, I knew there was no way I was going to be able to go to rehab today so I emailed my friend to let the other friend who was my driver today know that I wouldn’t be going. I called and left voice mail for the therapist.
This morning, my driver friend called and said she’d be coming out to bring me some more food but it would be this afternoon. I was halfway through breakfast when the phone rang. It was our other friend saying she was at the front door but wasn’t able to make me hear the knock.
When I opened the door, she came in laden with four little pot pies (if you have an appetite, one would make a meal), green beans, carrots and potato salad. I was embarrassed because I haven’t been able to take a shower for several days and I know I stink. She didn’t stay long.
The pies were still warm so when they cooled, I put three of them in a Ziploc bag and then in the freezer. I had 1/4 of the fourth, some green beans, carrots and two servings of potato salad for supper. Maybe I can make up for the half a lub or so that I’d lost since yesterday. Since I last reset my goal, I’ve lost .9 lub.
I had to rest before I put everything away. And then I had to rest before I fed the Catz a second time.
Cuz is supposed to be here tomorrow and it’s time for my B12 shot. I’ve asked my nurse friend to bring her stethoscope to listen to my lungs. I’ve been feeling very congested and I wonder if trying to deep breathe has riled something up.
That’s about it for yesterday and today. I took a dose of cough medicine a little while ago and I’m still coughing and hacking. If I could just bring something up, I think I would feel somewhat better.
