I'm gonna visit my aunt and take her to lunch. Visit her mil and take her something from the local bakery. She has a sweet tooth like me, lol! Her dh died of cancer a few years ago. She is very sweet! I love her like family and enjoy visiting with her. She is in her 90's and other than her hearing she does good! Hopefully go by Walmart before heading home. I have been pretty isolated the last 2 weeks with pneumonia, out of control asthma and a stomach bug since Wednesday night. I started coming back to life last night thank you Jesus! :) I generally stay in bc of pain but after the last two weeks of hell i'm gonna enjoy myself and deal with it later.
My aunt is disabled too so deals with similar pain. We are a great pair. A typical store run for most is less than an hr depending on if you are on a mission or taking you time of course. It takes us atleast 1.5-2hrs bc we sit down when our legs go numb. Idk if any of you have had numbing especially in your legs... Your legs start off feeling like jello then bam! Your waist down is numb and you feel like you are floating. Weird feeling but it is a norm for both of us so we take breaks often. Mine is due to scar tissue disease being wrapped around a major nerve in my lumbar so from my lower back/hip area down goes numb which is why I rotate sitting and standing every ten mins. Hers is due to a surgeon rolling a tendon in her leg & neuropathy. It hurts her worse to stand in one spot while it hurts me worse to continue walking when these episodes hit. Plus, as of lately my left leg (more damage on my left side) goes out so i've been falling a lot. But I need to get out so i'm gonna get out and try to enjoy myself. Otherwise i'll lay around and I refuse to give in!
One of the ladies from Naeem's intensive in home therapy team is coming to visit him at 12:30. She is taking him to the park to hang out and talk since he had a good week! Whew! Because as of lately his episodes have been increasing and becoming more violent. I have hope that they can help him so i'm proud of him for having a better week!
Umm... Sorry so long :P Once I start rambling that is it.. Soooo whacha up to?
