JOE’S JOURNEY

THURSDAY,DECEMBER 10

STRUGGLING ALONG…

My friends have  been asking what’s taking so long for my surgery.  I think it’s because they see I’m in a lot of pain. My surgeon is very busy, but at least they added my name to the wait list. Like everyone else, I have to wait my turn.

Before this all started, I never realized what a person with heart or hip problems went through. But now I know first hand and it’s no fun.  I had a very bad weekend. I had problems standing. Every time I moved I would have tremendous pain in my groin and hip.  I said “ouch” a lot this weekend.

I went on my machines which I love. But with all the discomfort I’ve been feeling, my heart was not into working out.  I promised myself I wouldn’t quit working out.  It’s hard to get on all the machines when you can hardly stand. Time to stop whining, my Lord will give me the strength I need to continue on.

I woke up and was ready to take my dog for her morning walk.  I had a problem walking and standing as it was putting pressure on my hips . I even used a cane which I hate. I feel using a cane is a cop out.  After we got home I was feeling pretty down. My injury has taken a lot out of me. I think they call that depression.

I’ve been taking a strong pain medication. I was trying to avoid doing so. I guess I need it, that sucks.  After I said a prayer to God,  limped down to the gym to work my but off.  I had a tough night sleeping. The pain was awful with every toss and turn.

Tuesday. I started my day off taking my pain medicine. Might as well get a jump start. I was able to walk my dog without that tremendous pain. I guess the pain pill helped. Afterwards, I went on my machines. I had a good day.  Boy, what a nice change.

Wednesday morning I took my dog for her morning walk.  It was enjoyable. It still hurts even after taking my pain pill, but we made it. I had another tough workout. Moving my body around wakes up my hip. I still smile when I am done.

Thursday. It’s so nice to start the day with a smile know matter what other problems I have.  I’ve been experiencing bad headaches which I found out is a side effect.  No more pain pills for me. I have a good aspirin that also does the trick and without getting a headache.  I better pray a little harder to my Lord.  I limped walking my dog, but that’s okay, at least I can walk. My workout was okay so it was a good day!

If you are reading my blog, you’re probably wondering why am I writing about everyday activities. I wanted to share with you what I go through each day.  Once I’m completely healed I will sit by the fireplace with a glass of wine and smile to myself. Maybe someone else that has the same problems will understand you can beat your injuries.

ThankyouGod
