Good day all,
I have to say this!! I am having an off day physically today. I did have the longest and best sleep that I have had in a very, and I do mean very long time. I am willing to say it has been a couple of years at least. Since I have been fighting to get well after my transplant. I am not certain for the reason of my long sleep, at this point it doesn’t matter except sleep maybe precarious tonight. I had a full ten hours of sleep last night. Kyle called at a little after nine when I hadn’t answered his text messages. This is how every morning starts around here. When I don’t answer the first couple of text messages he calls to make sure that I’m okay. This morning there were six messages before the call. When I answered the phone he certainly was shocked that I was still sleeping. Well for that matter I too was shocked I was still out cold. I quickly realized that I had to get on the move as my masseuse was coming at nine-thirty and I still was in bed with no breakfast or medication. It wasn’t until I was getting out of bed that I figured how weak my right leg was. I mean it’s always weak, but this morning putting any pressure even to pivot into my chair caused me to feel unsafe. I’m thinking this was probably from me showing off getting into the truck last night. One self-inflicted wound I guess.
I have a few amazing stories of amazing people to share with you today. A couple are from today one was from Costco yesterday. I’ll start with yesterday so it doesn’t get over looked. Carrie and I were just out of the store getting ready to get in the car. I was already in the car and Carrie was loading my wheelchair into the back. This beautiful lady was walking by when she stopped and offered to help Carrie load everything. Carrie was standing out there with a cart full of groceries while loading my chair, she kept trying to give this nice lady an out. The more Carrie was trying to let this angel off the hook the more she was offering. Thank heavens Carrie finally accepted the offer and things flew by. I called through to the back and said thank you so much for your kindness and wished her a terrific day. Carrie hopped in and we were off. We grabbed a quick-lunch, on to home we were headed. Today’s great tales are: one, Kyle brought home the mail and passed it to me while I was in the kitchen making my salad for the next few days. I seen a what looked like a cheque, I opened it knowing what it was. What I didn’t know was the amount. I had bought a membership to the gym/pool when we first moved here. (well waste to tell my everyday followers as you all know this) I called the pool a month ago to see if they would be willing to refund some of the year that I paid for as I was only able to be there a couple of months before I started to go down hill. As you know it was in the pool where my relapse started. I need to get a really nice thank you card, actually two of them as I need to take on to the pool and one to the town office. The town of Three Hills gave me a refund for the entire year. I’m so impressed with them. I just had a thought, I think I’m going to put a thank you for the entire thing in the paper. I will be doing this first thing tomorrow. Second of the day, certainly equal to all the above. At my Loins meeting tonight I brought up having a chair lift installed so I could continue to come. I really wish to continue to be apart of the club. Tonight I went up the stairs on my bum one step at a time. I will say by the time I hit the top I was sweating and my legs had used all they had. I was grunting with stair to get to the next one. I was so grateful that when I mentioned it that their reaction was that it had already been thought of. The idea will taken to Loins International. If not dealt with there, I mentioned the government funding, and they said also would come out of local cost if need be. This is such great news for everyone. There are many people who could use it. Has potential to bring in new members that would be unable to get in otherwise.
TWO BIG SHOUT OUT’S TO THE TOWN OF THREE HILLS’S AB, and the TROCHU LOINS CLUB.
I will go back now to my massage this morning. Shannon did a great job on me. I’m so grateful that she worked so hard on my right leg, really my right side. The longer into my massage I was starting to notice that it was my right side not just my right leg. It was a great massage, so glad that Shannon is kind enough to show up here once a week to work on me.
This evening I was Face Timing with Denise while cutting up my salad, yes this was before the mail came over. She was being smart about me writing a longer blog. I told her she didn’t have much room to be talking as she hasn’t posted one in quite sometime. I may write short ones to keep up on my (I have never missed one), I do always write one, even when I don’t want too. Take my word there have been MANY blogs that completely forced. P.S Denise, I hope his one is long enough for you. Feel better by friend. Ooh I did get some great news from another friend in Manitoba today about her Bone Marrow Cancer, they are saying that things are well and they certainly may have caught it in time. This is such great news. Plus huge thoughts out to my sweet Brenda. Life seems to be flowing along pretty good for all of us.
I got to speak with my sweet Ann from Arizona tonight. Ann that saved my life from Lethbridge MS Society. I was glad to hear from her that the flooding in Phoenix only did slight damage to her yard. It was a busy day today. I’m trying to figure out what I was busy doing, but certainly was something.
Tomorrow is book day, and shower day. I have a few different things that need to get done, I am always glad when I’m able to cruise around with my phone on speaker. It is like this that we get the book written and I still can get things done around me. Well anyways right at this moment I’m tired and requiring to go and lay down. I’m so grateful for my perfect day.
Love and hugs Fiona:-)
