It's still early, but today is shaping up to be a really good day.
I woke up at 6:30 and caught Lou sneaking out to the hot tub. (I am still not allowed to submerge myself in water yet.) His back has been bothering him, and the hot tub helps.
I felt pretty good and started my PT exercises. They were taking forever because I was just lying there not moving in between each set. I'd think, "Okay, let's go, lift that leg," and nothing would happen.
What finally got me moving was that Lou popped his head in the bedroom and asked me to make him a salmon bagel for breakfast.
I haven't made him breakfast in so long --- I am usually asleep till long after he's eaten. So I was psyched to be able to do it today. Plus he's always hungry after soaking in the hot tub, so I knew if I dilly-dallied too long, he'd make it himself.
After breakfast, my friend Julie dropped in for an hour to talk. We even walked to Joe and Peg's mailbox, very slowly of course. (My PT person verified that it was okay to walk up the hill.)
After my walk, I sat on ice and started feeling tired. So Julie split and now I'm back in bed, ready to fall asleep.
It's already been quite a full day!
And I feel a lot more cheerful today.
