It’s funny how little can change in a months time. Time passes, but nothing really happens – from one stand point that can be considered a blessing in disguise; from another it could be just flat out boring. Well, I can happily say I am not bored, but little has changed.
You can refer to me previous post about the numbness under my incision line , and see that little has changed there either, including the fact that it still feels weird when I anything presses against it. As I work more and more on the Bronco, I realize that I still drain energy pretty quick and if I’m not terribly careful I still fall victim to the dreaded afternoon nap: gasp!
My fit level is still a bit discouraging at times though. Litsa and I had a little mini-vacation the other weekend , and man did I tire quickly trudging up and down hills and numerous steeps stair cases in the great outdoors. I know it’s only been 6 months, but it still a bit discouraging. I’ve been trying to walk more regularly with one of the boys, but that’s hit and miss at best, and getting back on my rollers has proven a bit of a challenge. Since I am back to work full time, and things are really busy right now, I tend to come home tired. I also found going to work early every day for 2 weeks straight was a bad idea. From the standpoint that i got really tired in general, and I still haven’t fully turned that around. I was able to complete a lot more work without the phones ringing and such – but that’s about it. I didn’t do anything once I came home.
I have my meds changed a bit again this last week, and now I only have to go get labs every two weeks. That makes me happy – getting poked every Monday was getting a bit tiresome at best, but now it’s getting pushed out more. I have to go back to Pittsburgh for another CT, this time it’s an Angiograph – another Doctor decided they needed a better look at the Hepatic Artery and its flow rates by using the CT. Hopefully this other Doctor doesn’t decide I need to be more aggressive with what we are going to do with the artery, since its flow is still a bit less than 100%.
I guess I will find out around the 6th of next month.
