Meh, typical Sunday. Middle of the road kind of day.
The water is cold, and deep.
Nice day today-the shower is back, up, and set to go. Also got my 2 bar soaps from Central Texas Soaps. I look forward to a solid workout at the gym shortly.
Life is good. My right shoulder is toast! I experienced dead arm last week, it took a couple of minutes for arm to catch up with my brain.
I remember as a teenager my dad having ointments in the bathroom medicine cabinet along with his Gillette razor and blades, I would make fun of him because his shoulder or knees would bother him. Fast forward 40yrs and I'm my father's son, I probably have 5-6 different products for pain relief, yeah my son makes fun of me.
Not going to lie, life is heavy enough at the moment.
I went to the park for a little shoot. To get to the archery range, you drive past a large, central area, where there are picnic tables. As I drove past is, I saw a large, antlered buck, standing so still, that for a moment, I thought it was a practice target.
But of course, when I pulled over to take a picture, he walked away.
I am back from a quilter’s guild meeting. There, I got some help with a baby quilt that will be donated to a children’s hospital. These folks do loads of charity sewing, which appeals to me. They are also very thoughtful and friendly.
In a bit, my new sofa cushions are arriving. I got them made by a local business. I put in the order a week ago, and was told they would be ready in 2-3 weeks. Imagine my surprise when I was told they are already finished.
Hi, it’s me again. I had my second cataract surgery this past Thursday (right eye). I feel fine and am seeing quite well. The doctor wants me to take it easy for a week or so, which is driving me crazy because I FEEL FINE! Granted, this should be the biggest problem I ever have.
By "take it easy" does the doc mean don't be exposed to too much light or dark, don't drive, get a walking stick, watch your balance as you walk?
don't get up too quickly,raise your blood pressure,stay relaxed..don't rush around ,plus what you said..
I can walk normally and only had to avoid driving for the first day (to let the sedative get out of my system). The main things I was told were to avoid bending at the waist and not to lift anything over 10 pounds. So my husband will just have to do the laundry without my help this weekend. I’ll manage to live with that somehow.
As for light sensitivity, I haven’t noticed any difference, though I always carry a good pair of sunglasses anyway.
But I really want to do things like shooting my tournament bow, whose draw weight is too high, for now.
I never hesitate to use sunglasses inside if the sun is too bright. As for driving-perhaps a silly question, but you're OK to drive after the first day, even though you bend at the waist to sit on your carseat???
By “bending at the waist” they mean bending down so your head is below your waist- that raises pressure inside the eye.
oooooh ok.....well, I'm no doc.
I tweaked my back a little over two weeks ago. With my initial pain dwindling and hope of normal life a possibility, Sciatic pain decided to rear its ugly head. Normally I just tough it out, but sleeping was turning into a torture sessions, so I contacted my Dr and he prescribed some steroids to promote healing in my back.
get well soon Keith..
Thank you Gary.
