Today I expect much of the same as yesterday. The sun is coming out, so there will be a walk or two outside. The doctor suggested lifting 3 lb weights to gain some strength in my upper body. Logan and I ran an errand yesterday and picked up some 1 liter bottles of seltzer that will be my weights for the moment. Plus, there may be some basement stair climbs. I noticed yesterday that just stepping up on a curb was a little more difficult than it should be. There’s just a little exercise that needs to be done to regain some semblance of athleticism.
Probably bigger news is I’ve been off painkillers since the Tuesday doctors visit. Things are sore and hurt, but there’s very little constant pain. It’s more constant soreness and a reminder that my abdomen had its last major surgery a mere 2 weeks ago. The discomfort is manageable.
