I just barely survived yesterday! Unfortunately, it was not due to excessive partying! We finally got Alex home from the hospital around 11:00 am and immediately headed to her apartment to pack up her stuff and move her back to our house. We finally got home around 9:30 PM and were so exhausted we could hardly move. Thinking about the whole process today makes me laugh a bit. If only it had been on video! We had basically 3 cripples and one old man doing the work!!
Conor with the broken patella and still in a leg brace, me with a stiff left knee (arthritis), a sore right knee (from sort of underestimationg how high the truck was that I was riding in and falling out of the darn thing) and a swollen right arm (lymphedema) which I'm not supposed to do any heavy lifting with, Alex who still isn't supposed to lift really heavy items--and then there was Ray!! Poor Ray did so much heavy lifting by himself. Oh, and did I mention that Alex's bedroom was on the second floor and there were more stairs than I have ever seen in an apartment before-straight up! Conor and I both had to hold onto the railing to maneuver the darn things, so we were only able to use one hand which limited what we could carry! Again, poor Ray!
The great news is that Alex is doing really well. She was upset that we had to find a place for her kitty because I am very allergic, but my good friend Lyniece came to the rescue and is fostering Nebula until.....well, as long as is needed! Yeah, I was also coughing and wheezing the entire day while packing up. Sorry again-no video!!
No real exercise today for me today. Hoping to get back into the swing of things with my running/walking tomorrow.
