Good morning friends. Hope your Thanksgiving was pleasant and peaceful. We had a busy weekend with family and were happy on Sunday afternoon to sit and watch football. However, by Monday morning it was obvious that I needed to see my doctor because I’d been coughing for 10 days and it wasn’t getting better. He diagnosed my annual fall upper respiratory infection with bronchitis. I’m home on the couch with my Zpak and cough syrup with codeine. Still coughing but maybe a bit better.
We took our annual trip to Chicago this fall and I was proud of my steps on one of the days. 7.45 miles with a knapsack on my back.
I walked the whole city that day and not only did it feel good, I felt great the next day as well. So I think that the knees are healing very nicely. Ski season opened over the weekend (another fall annual tradition), and I hope to hit the easy slopes late February for some skiing.
Mr. Phat’s heart has strengthened and he’s feeling better in that respect. Two heart procedures, an extended hospital stay and new medications and he’s doing very well. However, he still has nerve pain on the left side of his body. We thought he had Lyme Disease, but now we’re not so sure. We’re thinking it’s some degenerative discs in his neck and back. We’ve seen a pain management specialist and see a spine specialist later this week. Seems we are finally on the right road for him after many many months of searching. Let’s hope.
