Stress

This week is more stressful than usual. My nurse practitioner's husband is quite ill and has been in the hospital. This is on top of the fact that my days are overloaded in preparation of taking next week to visit my parents who live out of stat... Read more

MIA
Saturday, September 14, 2013      7 comments

I have been absent from SP the past few days as my phone mobile hot spot and my wireless 'brick' to connect my computer to the office computer were both not working. Thus, I had to do my notes on paper and put them into the computer in the eveni... Read more
Computer Challenges
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      10 comments

I had difficulty getting online today. After working with 2 services providers and a lot of song-and-dance, I was informed it was an area-wide outage. It took them 35 minutes of wasting my time for them to tell me that! They had me taking apart... Read more

I am pain-free now when I get up in the morning. Yesterday, it was for about 5 min. Today, it was until I did the steps to leave for work. The intensity of the pain is about 1/2 what it was. Since I've been resting this evening, I am back to bei... Read more
Road to Recovery
Tuesday, September 03, 2013      8 comments

My knee was less painful today. I kept it wrapped while I worked. Steps were painful. Fortunately, I did not have to go to any 2nd floors today. I've had it elevated and resting all evening. When I got up to respond to nature's call, I didn't li... Read more

I did go to Church this morning and filled up the gas tank on the car. Otherwise, I am taking it easy - primarily sitting with my leg elevated with an intermittent ice pack. Hopefully, by tomorrow I will be able to walk without a pronounced limp... Read more
Knee Follow-Up
Sunday, September 01, 2013      12 comments

I remember now catching myself in a slip on a wet floor by an entrance (we've had some rain). I didn't fall. As MNTWINSGAL suggested, I most likely hyperextended it. I have been resting, icing and elevating. As it is not swollen, I haven't been ... Read more
Sore Knee
Saturday, August 31, 2013      15 comments

I'm not sure what I did, but it feels like I sprained my knee. As long as I'm still, the pain level is a 2. It jumps to a 10 if I step forward with a regular length step. If I only bring the step to be even with my other foot, the pain is a 7. I... Read more
