Another Week

Saturday, December 07, 2019

Well, I have another week done. And I'm still here. I'm so happy I'm feelin' so much better. It's been a long time since I've been this sick. I'm on the downside of takin' the steroids. Two more days and I'm done. I hate takin' em. They make me so hungry. Good thang Jessie and I don't keep snack foods in here. I haven't lost any weight since I've gotten sick, I have only gained. I hate that I have. 5 pounds is a lotta lose again. I have started ta exercise again. Not much but at least 20 mins. a day. I do 4, 5 min. sessions. That's about all my lungs can handle right now. We have moved the exercise bike in the front room so I can use that also. I think I will start that on Monday.

I'm not allowed ta be in the public right now. My doc says my lungs are in bad shape so I can't be, just in case someone is sick. I do have masks but they don't work too well when ya have ta wear O2 all the time. I went ta see my therapist on Thursday, and my POC (portable O2 concentrator), the battery didn't even last ta get there. Good thang I brought the power cord. I only got on battery this time. I told' em I want two of 'em. But haven't got the other one yet.

Today there are a lot of Craft Shows and I would love ta go. My friends are all gonna go. They want me ta go but I can't. My O2 will only last about 30 mins. I have ta use my wheelchair also and that is hard when they have those. People don't care if you're in a chair. They don't move for ya at all.

Jessie and I will be watchin' football today. Tomorrow we have church but I can't go so we are gonna bake cookies if I feel up to it. Which I might. I think it will be a good day ta do the Buckeyes. Those I can sit and do at the card table.

We have about 6 different kinds of cookies we make. And I love doin' it. We share with the neighbors and the workers at our apartment buildin'. They love it when we bake thangs.

Well, I better go for now. Y'all have a great weekend!

    My mother had to use oxygen in her later years..she hated it..she was always active and it did limit the amount the time she could be away from home..I have physical issues that keep me homebound a lot.. I do not like it but I am learning to adjust. The cookies sound like a good thing to be active and be a blessing to others
