A busy day

September 25, 2017 Monday

I slept fairly well last night but I kept waking up and then going back to sleep but I kept dreaming the same dream and the dream kept evolving. It was really strange. I have changed from Aleve pm to Tylenol pm. I wonder if that is at least part of the reason?

I got up and was able to take Coen to school. I love taking the kids to school. I get that one on one time in the car talking to them that I enjoy so much. Then I went to Kroger, got a few things and got my flu shot. Glad to have that done. I did not have any reactions to it today and I hope I don’t have any tomorrow.

During the day, I got to play with Zoë and I worked in the shop a little bit with Frank. I even got to operate some machinery – that’s always interesting. At one point, we all went over to visit Rachel’s parents. That’s always fun To do – they are such nice people.  It’s also fun to watch Zoë and Coen interact with them. Renee, Rachel’s mom, made a cake for Frank’s birthday and sent it home with us!!!  My slice was delicious!! Yum, yum, yum!!

We then came back home and worked in the shop some more and played with the kids. Then it was bedtime for the kids. That’s a fairly long process especially since I get to put Zoë to bed since we share a room. I get to go to bed early when I visit.  We didn’t finish the last Mercy the pig book but we will tomorrow night.  That pig sure does get into a lot of trouble!!! I’m glad I was very active today and I’m worn out.  I know all the activity is good for me and makes me stronger but it wears me out too!!

I felt pretty good today though I did have my usual diarrhea.  I have been taking my thrush medicine four times a day. That stuff is not the best nor the worst tasting stuff I’ve ever had but yuck!!  My back has bothered me today but I hope that by just being careful and sitting when I really need to do so, that it will get stronger by being used.

I have no way of weighing while I’m in Roswell so we will all just have to wait a few days to find out my weight. I know you are all on pins and needles to find out about that!!  Hahaha

I’m typing this on my ipad instead of my computer but I’m trying to catch my mistakes but I bet I’ve missed more than usual.  Sorry about that.

Six more days til surgery, I hope.
