In all that went on the last few days, I forgot to promote this month’s Patients for a Moment blog roundup, hosted by Leslie over at “Getting Closer to Myself”. I did a post a bit back on my Achilles Heel. Some excellent posts this time around!
Over the weekend we went to visit friends and family. I drove us down in the new car and hubby drove us back (thankfully, because the weather and traffic were TERRIBLE). We missed out on the beach due to a migraine on my part, but it turned out to be just as well with the storm (which was probably the cause of the migraine in the first place. I don’t like being a weather barometer).
I also was asked pretty much last-minute to fly out to Seattle for a few days for work next week. I was able to make arrangements and will visit family while in town, so it’s not that much of a chore. ;D I will take a full day to travel home rather than trying to overnight it- I know my limitations and I’d have to take that day off from work just to recover anyway. This is a slightly more technical arena than where I normally function- mostly I will be taking notes and reporting back. I can do that!
Yesterday my rheumatologist said the “remission” word. I have been doing really well, and my last blood tests came back clear. I am still not in great shape health-wise, but am starting to slowly exercise again when I can and trying to eat better. I weighed in on the doctor’s scale a full ten pounds down from last time, so that’s awesome! I will take any progress, even if it’s slow.
Mostly, I have been very busy and not on social media much. Things will probably stay like this through September, so if you don’t see me here much, I’m okay, just multi-tasking elsewhere. Still missing my Zack-kitty but Lucas is being Very Demanding so I certainly don’t feel unloved, lol. I hope that all is well in your world!
