Forward thinking at the end of healing
Sunday, August 02, 2020
A HOT good afternoon to you, Sparkies! I'm in my aptly named sunroom with all the windows opened, a fan blowing on me and bare feet on a cold tile floor. I'd maybe like to be inside but DH has the TV on loud(swears he does not have a hearing problem), his emergency scanners cranked up and he's watching some kind of military training video on his iPad....it's in FRENCH. No, sadly he does not 'parlez-vou Francais' except for a phrase or two from grammar school. You shoulda seen his interest the day he watched a Croatian military training video. Not a word of English and he was all in. This is also the guy I find watching the Spanish channels on TV and not just the shows with scantily clad women. He's a character, my man. A visual learner is the best way to put it.
I got to remove my heart monitor today, hooray! It'll take a week for the irritation from the glue to disappear. I drop it off tomorrow then visit the cardio next week.
I'm counting down 3 more days to pool entry. I feel so much better from my surgery and am enjoying some new found freedom being able to travel around without panicking for the sight of a restroom! A major test will be my dental visit tomorrow. It's cold in there and it triggered some responses in me when I was there last time. I'm bringing a sweater and not having coffee before I go!
I will start my exercising slowly by only walking. I'm entering the pool to take some pressure off these knees and my toe. I won't return to my in-water routine until my doctor allows it. I miss strength training but have kept up movement of every body part simply by not sitting still!
I hope all of you are finding some way of getting movement. Try to get up every 30 minutes. Stretch. Walk around you house. Bend. Keep moving!
