Just alerting the masses, so you're not feeling too sorry for me ... I felt a little better this afternoon. I just wanted you to know. I'd like to think I'm over the hump and on my way up but let's not get too hasty.
I dozed most of the morning after my tasteless breakfast, but had a hard time sleeping. I was mostly laying there trying to relax muscles, trying to eliminate anything that might be tension pain. But then my teeth started to hurt and that was the last straw. I couldn't ignore it. I couldn't sleep. So I broke down and took 2 tylenol. I'm glad I did. It helped all over and I was able to sleep for a while.
About mid-afternoon, I perked up a bit and, I must say, I feel a little better. Hannah and I made a short car excursion to Broadway where we bought her some running shoes and picked up some Coconut Water, which she tells me is the hottest thing in hydration. I also drank most of a gatorade (Luke's recommendation) because I was feeling so weak and shaky. Whatever it was, I was then able to water the garden and now I'm going to have a wee nap. I feel much less achy than I did, which is a relief.
Thanks, Pat, for stopping by with the little treats and encouragement and thanks, Betty Lou, too, for the baking and sensible words. And thanks, everyone, for your notes and thoughts. I'm keeping on keeping on ... of course. Is there any other way?
Now that Hannah is here to watch over me, Mom went home to get ready for company. The poor woman has hardly had a moment at her own home. Thanks, Mom, for your time and care.
Hannah snapped this photo of me watering in my Luke fan shirt.
