Day 480 Made the counseling appointment today.

Tuesday, December 08, 2015

I think I finally got all the Medicare and insurance stuff in order and made the appt. to start seeing a counselor. My first appt. is next Fri.

The whole blood work thing this morning took all of about 5 min. but having to drink only water and have no snacks overnight was hard for me. The hardest thing today was the mammogram. With my shoulders not working very good some of those weird positions where just plain painful. The instr. where like hang on here, lift your elbow but pull your shoulder back away from you body as far as it will go. My arms are no longer able to do those things. I left there feeling like I'd been twisted into a pretzel.

So then I took mom her Christmasy napkins and her new tree skirt. I would have taken a picture of it but she wanted to put it on herself. So next time I'm in town I'll take it's picture. I think it might be a bit too big for a 3' tall tree. But she loved it.

By the time I'd done a little bit of shopping it was past time to get home. My knee hurt and my foot was killing me. Even the 2nd new pair of shoes is not comfortable to wear for a long period of time. My boney growth on the side starts to throb when it's been in a shoe too long. Next week at my physical I think I'll have to ask if that can be fixed in any way. I'll add it to my list.

As for working on projects well that didn't happen much today. But I am looking forward to being at home all day tomorrow and getting those pillow cases finished and back to putting the purple quilt together. Some of you say I'm an artist and that is very scary to me. I just make things. Kind of whatever my little mind sees and thinks i can do. I'll try it. Does that make me an artist? I don't know but thank you all for you positive feedback. I have a hard time saying I love the things I make...I'm my own worst critic.

    Smart move to keep a list of the things you need to talk about at your physical - I have a tendency to forget until AFTER I've been there!
