+18 – Rolling, Rolling

Sept. 22, 2013 – Day +18

Not much to really report today. They won’t do blood work until tomorrow, and then it will be very extensive to get me prepared for my discharge on the 24th… I know, Tuesday! Just right around the corner. Can’t wait.

I didn’t have any bone pain last night and even the night sweats seemed much better. So, I’m really feeling well today, and plan on taking advantage of that and walking more. Now if the weather cooperates, that’s a different story, but I can walk the halls and try to walk some stairs, if that’s what I need to do to keep these legs moving. A few have asked if my legs are weak like before, from the MS, or weak from not being used. They are weak from not being used. Totally different weakness. So, hopefully with some walking and then PT when I return, I will gain some real strength. And Kick Some ASS… so watch out.

Kristy had a big day yesterday, and went out all day with her brother and was able to meet her new nephew for the first time, he was born just a few days ago. Upon her return, she had brought me some nice treats. 🙂 One was this sweet roll, which I just devoured for breakfast. (yes, ended up eating the whole thing, not just the half) I’m on a total sugar high right now, and loving it.

She also brought Peanut M&M’s, which I enjoyed one of the bags last night shortly after she left the room, and will save the other for tonight. A mandarin orange, which, I will save for dinner tonight. You have to plan out the special food to make it through dinner.

Every day they bring me a baby yogurt, and I save it for the dinner, since I know that can be hit, or more likely miss. This is the first one with a pineapple on it, or any hint that there is possible fruit flavor in there. Can’t wait to see how this taste. Really, the little things that bring me much joy. 🙂

Some times lunch includes a can of this baby food. Not sure why, and I’m NOT going to eat it, so random.

Still baffled at the baby food.

So, as you can see, just bored today, and rambling on. Hope you all have a happy Sunday.

    J&J, Ken and I are happy for your progress. Your time there is coming to and end. You have much to be thankful for and I’m sure you have developed a close relationship with Drs. and nurses. Hurray for them! Love, Darlene
