Now Playing: Day 708-The Final Road To Survival
I think Pumpkin kitty had the right idea to just stay in bed all day and sleep...
Me? I didn't get any sleep. The sleep I did get was from constantly tossing and turning all night as well playing music couch and recliner. My friend-Caregiver was nice enough to move the big comfy recliner from the back room into the living room next to my couch bed. Of course since its so new it hasn't been broken in yet so the back slowly lifts up when you don't have your weight against it. I have to lay down in various pretzel positions just to get comfortable so he rigged the chair with large bathroom towels to keep the back part reclined. So far, so good! The best position I can find on my couch bed is to literally hang my left leg and hip over the edge to relieve some pain. It works but only for a short time.
Thank goodness its finally spring and not summer again outside. The temperatures have dropped around 20 degrees which finally gives the air conditioner a break. This is my kind of weather in the low to mid 60's! Now if I can just get my body to heal and the pain to ease up long enough to enjoy it. My friend-Caregiver finally put the last touches on the new gym equipment. Since he takes care of me its easier for him to work out at the house in case of any emergency or if I need help with something. Now the GP room is also a fitness room! WOOHOA! I sure do miss working out. I worked out for years up until I got sick. You either find a joy and passion in it or you will end up giving up and slacking off. For him its a great way to relieve stress and let me tell you he has been put through some relentless stress lately not by my condition but by the actions of others.
Speaking of NOT GOOD...After talking to a few fellow GP'ers and friends of mine I told one, "If this pain doesn't start easing up soon since its now shifting to the front I am going to end up back at the hospital." I can take a very high tolerance of pain but for some reason my gut is screaming something again isn't quite right because the same pain is still lingering but now it hurts to even breathe in or stand up. With my friend-Caregiver at work right now this might become a very, very interesting evening. Only time will tell...
