Day 109 - Moving Along

Wednesday, March 18, 2015

It's mid-week, which doesn't have a lot of meaning when you're not working, but it's still a milestone. It's also my weigh-in day, and although it's only a 0.2 pound loss, it's still a loss and I'm going to celebrate!

I had an MRI yesterday on my shoulder, because the new orthopedist thinks there might still be a tear in my rotator cuff. My last MRI was a nightmare experience (I was tripping on dilaudid, and I know that didn't help), but the one yesterday was actually quite pleasant. I had over-the-ear headphones listening to Freddie Mercury and Queen, and so the machine noise didn't bother me at all. I got the films to bring to the doctor, but haven't taken a look at them yet. I will this morning.

This afternoon I'm seeing a neurologist who is going to do a test to see why I am still having so much neuropathy in my left foot. There are still some reminders of the accident, more annoying than painful, but it would be nice to know that my healing is still in progress.

I also hope to get a phone call today about a new job, that I really, really want to get. If I don't hear from them this morning, I will call them. If they want me to start right away, I need to know. We are leaving for the lake this afternoon, and I will drive separately if I'm going to stay there to start the new job. I'm having a bit of anxiety about all this, because the new job will get in the way of any follow-up doctor visits, since it's a 2-hour drive between Sacramento and the lake. But hey - that's a good problem to have!

Steve called in sick to work today. He never does that. He's got a bad cold and stomach cramps, so he went back to bed. I'll have to find a new spot for my workout this morning.

Life goes on, but what you do with the time you have is what makes life great. I'm making the most of today. How about you?

    I'll take any loss, it is better than a gain or even staying the same.

    Healing hugs to both of you! Colds are such a pain in the ass! And rotator cuff issues are painful! You must have been in some accident!!!
    I hope your fur babies are good nurses...that's what we call our 22 pound orange tabby..."Kitty Nurse"... as she seems to know when we are not right!
    Prayers for new job!
