As I found out this morning: Monday are still Mondays. Only difference is my work. I now work in rehab. This morning started off with an 8 a.m. OT session. And of course, I didn’t get breakfast ahead of the session. And of course, I didn’t feel so hot. But, with the help of the therapist, I was able to lift my self into bed and make some progress with my rehab.
The rest of the day dragged on just like any other Monday. I was tired, sleepy, and not quite mentally ready. Every time I made attempt to go to weight-training class, I realized I didn’t grab one thing or another. Needless to say, I was late to weight training. From there I had an easy session. I was on the electrodes on my legs bike — if that make any sense at all. I had this video on the other day, but no one could get it. I added it again so everyone can see it.
After lunch, which was great today, I was put in this contraption that stands me up. It is only the second time I have ever done it. I didn’t get all the way up this time, but maybe the next time. I would like to say that was easy, but near the top, I didn’t feel so well. My day ended with wheelchair class and a little exercise. Just like most of you at work, today was long, but we all got through it.
Mom, the Hiegels and Susan Macdonald brought some lunch here. It was, without question, better than anything the cafeteria could have made. I will say this: any meal that is not a Craig cafeteria made meal is the foundation of a great day. The bad news is that with the memories of a good meal and the realization of tonight’s dinner is not so good, makes tonight’s dinner even a little harder to swallow.
On another home front: For the last couple of days, I have been hungry non-stop. The doctor tells me it is a good thing and that it means I am a healthy person. I’m all for that. The bad news is: well, I am hungry all the time. And I mean I am getting hunger pains. It is at the point where I don’t feel so good because I haven’t eaten enough. I also see one other downside to this. I really don’t want to be getting a belly for eating too much.
Tonight should be a calm night. I’ll talk to Erika and see she how she is doing. I may also go down into the basement of Craig and roll around. It sometimes is a nice way to cool down and relax at the end of the night. Erika and I used to do it quite a bit when she was here, and I am finding I have not done it much since she left. Other than the rolling around in the basement, I may try to read tonight. I typically try every night, but when I lay down, the eye lids get pretty heavy pretty quick.
I guess that’s all I have for tonight. TGMIO, Thank God Monday Is Over.
