This is day 25. Still recovering at home. Each day is better than the previous day. I can now walk slowly without a walker. Standing up and sitting down still need to be done very slowly.
Currently taking four kinds of pills: one antibacterial (Omnicef), and three pain relievers (Celebrex, Norgesic, Lyrica). I have never taken these many drugs for this long in my life. I think they cause dizziness and make my urine smell weird.
One of the things I learned during this ordeal: Exercise is not important for weight loss. Just eat the right foods and you won’t gain weight. I haven’t worked out at all since 15 Aug while eating normally, but my weight has not gone up. Exercise is important for fitness and making me feel good though.
Being home is nice. Homemade food is certainly better than hospital food. Nan made these for me:
Pain is subsiding and life is slowly coming back to normal. Should be able to go back to work next week. Will practice driving over the weekend. Will take longer to get back to running though.
I feel grateful for good wishes from my family and friends during this difficult time.
Stuff happens. Life goes on.
