2 week update



Our YMCA closed the pool we swim in 5 days a week for 4 weeks
In a foolish light bulb moment,



MS came up with Home Style Exercises... KNOWING I am almost 70, KNOWING I have arthritis, which is why I do the pool only and not the gym...

MadSnapper took her daddy's cane, and played at weight lifting and did a big long stretch (see above) and felt something SNAP.....
Internet Photo

the way  my shoulder felt 

                             Urgent Care says intrascapular  pain in plain English sprained/strained muscle that was swollen and pressing on nerves...

that would just not STOP..... neck, shoulder all the way to the wrist, down the back. PULSING SHOCKS OF PAIN..... could not lay, stand or sit to get relief.
Meds and drugs and heat pads and 2 weeks of very little sleep....... my pain is from a 10 to a 2 on the pain scale.

Now I have a sinus infection ... more drugs... more money... etc etc plumber bill
$300...AC bill $100....blah blah yada yada

I can type for short periods of time, as in five minutes at a time..

I have 12 left over posts in drafts which will help me start back slowly.... very slowly.. but I don't know when I will be back...

Oh so good to hear from you. I missed you as everyone has.

So sorry to hear that gloom and Doom

problems.

We think we are young perhaps in heart and head right but our bodies tell us with arthritis and our age.

Who are we fooling. Only ourselves. I have been there done that.


I cannot do the things I did last year even and the year before.


I was shocked. I thought it was only the golden you know what we have not the aches and pains.

I thought retirement was Traveling, dancing still swing the golf club. Long rips to the mall till we drop. To have dessert. Not even that now.

You take care my Sandra and I know when you come back.

We will get some laughs as usual.

Hugs from Canada

I am about your age and can sympathize, here you were being clever and trying new exercises and OUCH. Will the pool be open soon? I exercise in a pool too, and then 5 minutes in the jacuzzi. Be well soon.
