I had a very good day yesterday, physically speaking! I was feeling a little "cooped up", so I decided to traipse over to Daniel and Erin's house where Ed and Lew were doing some carpentry work and also installing windows blinds. It felt so good to get outside and breathe in the fragrance of autumn. I used my stationary walker and took it slowly and did just fine. Here is a picture I took of the front part of our yard on the way back home.
Later, after I had been home for a little while, I could feel the muscles in my legs....both of them.....begin to tighten up but I kept walking about the house and doing a few things here and there. Yesterday was the first day that I did not lay down for a nap AND I didn't need to take any pain medication either. Until yesterday evening at about 8pm. By this time, my body was just so tired, I couldn't stay up any longer. I can't say that I was sleepy, just physically tired. So I took a Vicodin and Ed got me all tucked into bed
The Notebook was on TV last night and I recorded it but Ed wanted to watch it, so he turned it up loud enough so I could lay in bed and listen to it while he watched it. I drifted off to sleep waking up at a little before eleven o'clock, so Ed helped me up to the bathroom, tucked me in again and I slept until 4:30am, at which time I was ready to get up for the day. It is now 2:15pm Friday afternoon, I definitely feel a nap coming on, so I'm going to close this post and wish all of you a wonderful weekend!!! Go Bucks!!
