Rhett is all freaked out about me…me, too!
I felt extra tired and weak yesterday and figured I would be better today. Ha!
Three or four days ago I fell and almost every day I fall into walls.
These bruises were more dramatic the day the physical therapist was here. When she asked if I ever fell, I just showed her my various bruised body parts. She was sharp, she had already seen and written it down. It was kind of scary to have to quantify how often I fall all the way or part way each month. I usually try to minimize my falling.
OK…yesterday I was weaker than usual. I could not move without my walker attached to me.
I kept telling Rhett I was sooooo tired and sore and weak. I was moaning that I didn’t have enough strength to wash the dishes. He suggested I use the dishwasher. Since I just learned to use it on Thanksgiving day, it still feels radical and slothful and overly expensive. I washed a few things by hand, got a few tears from pain and just stuffed the dishwasher!
When I sat down I kept telling Rhett I had weird breath. He went to bed and I was waaaaaay too queasy to lie down. I sat up playing with Pinterest for a couple more hours while drinking as much water as I could stand.
Without going into graphic detail, let’s just say I spent two half hour sessions in the bathroom in the middle of the night. Then I realized what was going on with my weird breath.
This morning I got up to go to church and was almost too weak to make it to the bathroom. I got back in bed and told Rhett I didn’t think I could drive. I had him very gently feel my hugely distended belly. Rhett was very dramatic with his OHHH, NOOOOO!!!!!!
I rolled over and tried to sleep. I could smell the gross breath in my CPAP mask. My legs were going nuts with myoclonic jerks and lighting bolts of pain. No way could I go back to sleep. I rolled back over and dramatic Rhett said OHHHHH NOOOOO!!!!! YOU’RE BURNING UP!!!!! I took his hand and wiped it across my forehead dripping with sweat only to hear OHHHHHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
Then I had to run to the bathroom and stay a long time.
I finally came out to the living room to force water. I have a horrible dehydration headache 😦
I have no idea what this is all about. I have been switching between burning up and goosebumps every few minutes. Also, there is an incredible burning in my esophagus and throat. I took a Zofran and that is a bit less intense. I can feel the urge to hurry to the bathroom coming back 😦
Last night after the first middle of the night bout, my bad leg swelled up. My foot and peg part of the leg have not been swollen in quite awhile. I also developed a new and painful bump where my foot flexes.
At the V part of the lipodermatosclerosis I have developed a watery bubble that has popped twice and it hurts right to my bone.
Rhett says I shouldn’t feel so guilty about missing church. He thinks it’s crazy that I do. Sigh….
