The week began with a doctor’s visit to pain management. The doctor and I had a very good talk and we actually came to the conclusion I was an individual and not likely to become addicted because of the pain level now experienced. Dr. J listened intently as I explained the fiasco of the last visit to his office and he apologized because, as I figured, he knew nothing about the treatment the staff gave me. Now we are on the same page and he seemed a little more relaxed. I know I am a lot more relaxed going to see him.
Since the weather was mild, I asked Carlos to take me to see my father-in-law. It has been months since I was able to go for a visit and all of us had a great time. We even splurged and ate at I Hop! I’ve wanted pancakes forever and the decision was I Hop. Big Daddy said he wanted some good French toast and sort of craving it for a while. It was a win-win for all of us.
Even after eating there was still some energy to be had, so I did a bit of shopping and even got some bandanas for the dogs and Willie even got a new shirt. It came from the boy’s section at Wal-Mart and it fit. He has frozen when he goes out and today Carlos said he was eminently proud of his shirt – Willie even wears one of Carlos’s huge tees sometimes when he goes out because he simply doesn’t want to be cold, which I understand. I say he is a hooman with fur and more and more he proves me right.
Today, all-in-all, has been a pretty good day. Yes, I over-did-it yesterday, but not to the point to where I am hurting so badly I can’t think, or don’t want to do anything. In fact, I am moving forward with taxes, writing projects, games, blogging, and knitting. It feels good to do things again. The energy level (my spoons) is low, but not exhausted, which means there will be energy for tomorrow as long as the weather doesn’t instantly change again.
Here’s hoping everyone out there is having a splendid, energy filled day, too!
