Thank you all so much for your comments, emails, words of encouragement and healing juju, suggestions, etc., etc. This blogging community is such a god send!
I am gradually healing. The key word is gradually. By nature I am not a very patient person, so this is a bit difficult for me. I've been frustrated and angry by the constant pain and my inability to do some things or even get in a comfortable position. But...I will get through this (with the help of your encouragement and well wishes). Each day is a little better.
Finally, over the weekend, I was able to sit for a long enough period of time that I could knit a little or stitch a little. Progress! And, I'm back to reading. I'm still resting a lot, but not taking as many naps as the other week - LOL.
The weekend was quiet. We did have snow squalls one day - looked like a blizzard for 20 minutes or so and then it was over. We are supposed to gradually warm up a bit this week and Fletch is planning to grill again on Wednesday. That's about the excitement here. Today I will go for an X-ray of my lower back (just to be sure). I had planned to go last week, but fell asleep instead!
I'm still limiting my computer time, so will close out now. I hope everyone is doing well and again, so much thanks for reaching out to me.
I'm glad you are improving, even if it's not as quickly as you'd like.ReplyDelete
I continue to send the healing juju your way! (and all my love!) I hope you continue to improve! XOReplyDelete
I'm so happy to hear you're noticing improvement, Vera. Sometimes it's all about the baby steps. . . Knitting and reading again are surely good signs! XOReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear that things are improving, and I hope the x-ray reveals nothing to be concerned about. I understand so well how hard it is to be patient with our bodies when we're used to being very active.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you are beginning to improve, Vera, and I hope the healing continues. My grandmother used to say that things were getting better if you could "sit up and take nourishment", so I'm happy you can sit up, knit, and read.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see this post today. Patience is not my virtue either, so I know how frustrated you must feel. It sounds as if you've made a lot of progress in a week! Slow and steady for complete healing is best. Take care and hang in there.ReplyDelete
Glad things are improving!ReplyDelete
We are above freezing today and the cats are loving it - they are all out in the catio, wondering why there is still snow on the ground. Im not going to tell them it's going to be back to frigid and snowing by the weekend
Glad you are feeling a bit better.ReplyDelete
It's so good to see you post. I'm glad you're feeling better and here's to a speedy recovery the rest of the way!ReplyDelete
Slowly but surely! Hoping you feel better soon.ReplyDelete
Glad that you’re feeling a bit better. Slow and steady improvement is a good thing.ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm so glad to know that you're improving, even if it is slower than you like. At least it's improvement. I'm praying for you my friend.ReplyDelete
I am glad you are feeling a bit better. Slow and steady improvement is great progress. Take good care.ReplyDelete
Always good to have an x-ray. Hope the mending continues, even if slow, as long as it's steady. We're seeing some green and the parking lot snow mountains are down to about six foot!ReplyDelete
You will learn to be patient and move slowly to avoid aggravating pain! Hope the xray is clear....ReplyDelete
So glad you are feeling some better! Hang in there, and share with us some of the books you've been reading.ReplyDelete
