not giving up...

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Just a quick check-in...

I saw the PA on Thursday - yes - I have cellulitis as I strongly suspected... she was concerned about a blood clot, so off to the hospital for an ultrasound - NO blood clot... now - after antibiotics for 3-4 days, it's much better, but the swelling is still significant... so - when possible, my hubby helps get my feet above my hips (not an easy achievement). Kind of disappointed that my weight was up in just one week (had my regular 6 mo checkup the week before). However - I'm realistic in thinking that my right leg is much larger than it was a week before... so I'm blaming it on that...

This is made just a bit more complicated as we have Baby Benjamin - (now 16 months old and BUSY!). My hubby is great in doing most everything so that I can keep my feet up as much as possible.

Add to this that I caught a cold... (yes - I'm aware that I'm probably whining)... congestion, coughing, headache... yup - the normal cold "stuff!"

I'm frustrated... I was beginning to get up and going again in adding steps and exercising and drinking water.

However - I'm not giving up... everyday is a new day... a new start...
