Now Playing: Day 643-The Final Road To Survival
OK. So I finally got a bit of rest. I will take anything I can get however it doesn't mean that I still won't have to deal with these darn head sensations.
On top of not getting solid rest without feeling head 'funky' (I like to call it) the doorbell rings early this afternoon and then the fur kids started barking. OK. I am now officially up. GEES-Thanks FedEx! Yes, I am still not feeling well and yes, I am still irritable as allllllll heck. Not a pleasant feeling to say the least but for now I am doing the best I can.
I started a new antibiotic today since last night in the ER they did notice my lymph nodes in the back of my head were a bit swollen. I don't need any infections going on right now so better to be safe than sorry. With the weather being spring one day then winter the other its sure not helping matters. Sadly I am starting to think we will never see any significant amount of snow fall. I am taking the new combination anti inflammatory medication they prescribed for me last night but I don't really see any difference as far as relief. I honestly believe since my Gastroparesis doesn't allow for proper absorption I might just have to continue sucking it up and dealing with things as they come. Day by day. I have a few new ice packs now so its makes things much easier rotating them when one gets warm.
The fur kids are growing just as bored as I am. I lost track of how many times I said I was bored today. Funny enough my friend who always says he just wishes he had a few days to sit around and do nothing has also grown bored. Hahahaha! That makes how many of us now? Four. I better just get used to it and listen to the doctors and keep the not so brilliant ideas to myself. Like over doing it even if around the house. If I stay laying in one position with the head wraps and ice I feel a bit better but once I get up and start moving around the head pressure starts hitting me again. I can't play the Wii system or Atari with my head recovering. I can't take walks outside due to my head recovering. I can't walk on the treadmill due to my head recovery. What I can do and becoming an expect at is channel surfing! There are just way too many infomercials at night. Same with all this filler channels. At least with the living arrangements changing I got a great new package deal from Dish network this week. Now I have all three movie channels over the next three months but try watching them with subtitles and a pounding, pulsating headache. Good luck!
Maybe I just need to work on getting a list together of things I can do that don't require driving, going outside, using the treadmill, playing interactive games or bending and stooping. Hey! that would leave me with baking and channel surfing. This also requires steady balance and concentration which I don't have right now. Ask my friend who just today had to pick up skillets I dropped, a Slimfast on the floor, bird seed and the grand finale was the salt shaker that went all over me and the tile. Heck! Maybe for good luck I should had threw the rest of the salt over my shoulder instead of having him vacuum it up. Hahahaha!
Back to the ole couchbed and sleeping fur kids....
