It's been quite a long day. My right arm is still hurting from the yard work I did this weekend. I realize now I should have asked for help, instead of trying to pick up all the leaves myself. Lesson learned. I had my appointment for my fir... Read more

My left leg, the side with the bad hip, has been feeling a little weak. Yesterday I did a search online for exercises to strengthen the legs, and printed some out. Most are done sitting or lying down, so they are very doable for me. I am hoping ... Read more

Today has gone much better than yesterday; felt pretty good most of the day except for a sinus headache that's been kind of nagging at me all day. It's cold and windy, and going in and out in that weather triggers those headaches in me. I reall... Read more
