Did I get Healed? Ahhhh No.

Well, If you read over at my other blog…you already know, did I get healed? Heck NO. My disc is more extruded, and not stable. I really have to hand it to the surgery scheduler.  She did not cancel my “reservation” After that my life kicked into high gear.  I have made doggie reservations, gotten …

Moving right a long.

Monday. I woke up with what I think was pretty good sensation in my right foot. The sensation of rubber bands  stuck around my toes seems to be decreased.  BUT I am also really analyzing each sensation for possible recovery. My body is still sore from Saturday’s excitement. In addition, I seem to have a …

And that’s a wrap!

I have FINALLY finished the Virtual Half Marathon that I started after the injury. I am very excited to get my medal in the mail. Though I am a bit concerned as I see some folks have gotten theirs already. When I started the virtual half, my first session was for a tenth of a …

improvement…

So… I’m continuing to improve.  Actually I have not noted much improvement since the weekend, but I am not getting worse.  I’m at a bit of a standstill. When I take Motrin, I really feel pretty pain free.  At some point, I always forget that I took motrin, and think..Ooooh, I can run again.  Then …

Fingers Crossed

I am unsure but…I believe I am seeing some improvement in my symptoms for real. I am noting that gradually over the weekend and yesterday and this morning that I am moving a little bit more intuitively and naturally. I still have a lot of Nerve symptoms.  My right calf burns rather all the time. …

sore….hurts so good.

Today was a great day. Firstly Coach and his wife had their beautiful baby! Last night, I got an email that appears to have been sent pretty quickly after the grand event.  I felt pretty special.

Let’s just overdo it…shall we?

Today I walked 50 laps.  It’s 0.71 miles.  All in the pool. I was not nearly as happy as this young lady.  Nor did I look as cute, though I decided what the heck it is December so I wore my ridiculous Snowman swim suit. Yes this is the exact suit. I wore it all …

Hump Day & Thursday

The wise men rode camels, so hump day in the first week of Advent is totally acceptable. I was ok today.  having a bit of frustration about essentially being used by my old job.  I am super annoyed that I am still essentially contracted to be doing their work, and having to go back and …
