Well, I'm still here.Went to bed 10:00 last night. woke up at 12:24, 1:45, and 3:30. At 1:45 i had a cramp in my left thigh. the pain was excruciating. Cramps are common for me usually I can catch them before they get to bad and rub or walk them out. Also had some kidney pains. Got up at 5:00 My left hip hurts a great deal almost couldn't put weight on it. MyWhere my prostheses is (At least where I believe the joint and the bone come together) also hurts a lot. My right knee is swollen and hurts as well More kidney pains And overall my whole body just feels bad. On the 1 to 10 scale 1 being low pain 10 being unbearable I am about an 8. I will use this scale from now on at the beginning of my entries. Now for my diet progress. I did well all day untill after dinner. Again I lost control and ate a lot of things I shouldn't Being Valentines unfortuinately there are tempting treats in the house I went over my calorie count by a few hundred calorie. I guess it could have been worse.
It is noon now , my hip, leg, and knee are sore but not as bad Had to take some Vicodin. Now maybe a 5. I can deal with that. Had a good healthy breakfast, and am going tpo have a nice salad for lunch. I haven't quite decided what to do for Valentines dinner yet. I would like to do something special for Leslee.
Well better run. Will try to update later this evening.
