Two Weeks Out Weekend Recap


Hey howdy all?  I hope you've had a good weekend and are ready for a new week.  It's been slow moving in these parts.  I had my vein procedures two weeks ago Wednesday and I'm adjusting to how that feels as the vein (hopefully) begins to close off as well as my limitations.  No strength training, no major cardio, no massages and no heat.  So much for being able to get off any vacation weight sticking around.  I try to do the floor bike in addition to walks but my lower inner thigh muscles were not appreciative of me trying to keep up the 10K steps of our vacation.  I could feel them feeling like they wanted to cramp up which would be catastrophic because I can't roll or massage those areas out.  I'm hoping to try it again this week since I can put the heating pad into rotation.  So much to get used to and there's still some swelling and inflammation.  There's also a fun twist of my right side not receding close to the femoral artery the way she wanted so I have to be on aspirin for a month so platelets don't stick to it and give me a clot.  Good times.  I really hoped I would be able to do more on so many levels but it's been very tender and a lot to adjust to so we haven't been doing a whole lot.  I've got a chiro appointment this morning but he's not going to be able to do much to my legs except if he can get the outside of my calves as usual.  But there will be no ankle yanking or dropping on the adjustment board or the shins.  So I'll have him focus on the SI joint, shoulders and outer calves.  The awesome part?  Just when I'll be able to get back into everything full force, it'll be time for my lower leg and start all of the limitations all over again and then again a month or two later for the sclerotherapy.  😕

We switched to Hulu for our streaming service since Fubo took it upon themselves to drop 16 channels and raise prices so we've been watching a bunch of true crime and some reality crap.  We got out of the house yesterday to make the drive to the venue where we've got a wedding this weekend.  It's about 45 minutes away and has those folding chairs that fat people dread.  We'll have to be up a bit because my legs can't take sitting on hard surfaces like that anyway.  I guess that's a good thing because Mom was supposed to be heavily involved in this wedding so I know it will be a hard day.  Walking around will allow me to cry in private if needed.  June has hit me pretty hard as it's her birthday month and I know the dread of every day after as I will remember every trauma we all endured once July rolls around.  It's all very unreal.

We're all stocked grocery wise and ready to roll for the week.  I'm hoping the legs feel less tight as the week progresses so I can try to get back to my 10K 'steps' per day.

Sorry it's not an exciting update but that's what is going on in our neck of the woods right now.

  1. Everything kind of smacks right after the vacation is over to doesn't it? We'll hang in there together and see it all through but we'll need another vacation for our sanity at this rate.

  2. It was a busy weekend, but pretty good from a mental standpoint. There was a nice breeze so I was able to go out on the deck a few times and just tuned out all the traffic noise. And I was able to go to church for the first time in 3 weeks so I was thrilled to get out of the house. The weekend zipped by fast though and before I knew it, it was time to sit at the work desk again.
