Whoo boy! What a whirlwind of time! I know it’s been a minute since I wrote. The days have been running together lately. So, let’s get to the weights.
Week 44 came with a 194.4 check-in, 45 showed 196.6, and this morning I weighed in at 193.2. I guess my fat likes to travel! I don’t really remember much of week 44, but last week I got sick and ended up going to the doctor. Turns out I’ve got a bad cold mixed with heartburn. Lovely. Got some meds to help with the coughing fits and the congestion, and some saline solution to keep my nose moist. My nose was so dry inside I got a nosebleed at the doctor’s office.
In other news, my caregivee missed a day of therapy thanks to my sickness. I took them to therapy on Friday, but stayed in the car. When it comes to sickness, I’m not really a sharing type of soul.
It’s also gotten more seasonable in weather here. A bit chilly. The heated blankets have been pulled out, and so have the sweaters. I love this time of year, though! You can always add layers, but when it’s hot, you can only take so many layers off before getting arrested for indecent exposure.
My caregivee seems pretty peppy today. They love this time of year,too, and I think me being sick has forced them to try and do certain things for themselves. They gave their self an insulin shot yesterday, which is huge! They haven’t been able to do that. Granted, it wasn’t in the area they normally inject the insulin, but they did it!
This week, hopefully, I’ll be getting over this cold and can get back to normal activities. My caregivee has reached out to another orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion about their shoulder. This was at the request of their physical therapist. Something is just hinky about this shoulder. Both therapists they’ve had have felt that something wasn’t right, but the surgeon won’t listen because he’s so enamored with his work. If you could see my face, I’m rolling my eyes as I type. Ridiculous.
Today will be a rest up day. I managed to sleep through the night last night. First time in a few days, so maybe I’m on the mend. My big goal this week is to get a Thanksgiving dinner planned out. It’s only 3 people, but I’d like to make all I can from scratch.
That’s my update for this week, folks. I’ll try not to neglect y’all again. Until next time, stay healthy my friends. 🤗
