DP, kicking ASS!


What is an Active Rest Day at this point in my recovery?

Last night, I slept well. I went out in the cool morning and watered a dozen plants spread around the patio, and did many of them while sitting. I sat at the table for brek instead of power bar in recliner. I sat at the desk to create a poolside laminate from pix of a deteriorated laminate taken ydy.

Then it was time to stretch my back in the lift recliner, which is in the office/tv room/library, so I started sifting thru movies on our new Netflix plan, and started one.

Got up to get own lunch, and watched a movie with Greg.

Initiated a Netflix break and folded the partner-needed king sheet alone, and then stowed the filled laundry hamper of linens.

(I DID purge enough in PA!!! They're all put away!)

Set up a system for keeping BR door open all day for cold air flow.

Made coffee and tea for us since Greg got off track making them for our Netflix afternoon.

Many of these are things I don't do every day on my own, especially PT days in the pool, or on alternated days or with walker. Today I must be active enough (out of the chair) not to stiffen up, but not so active I exacerbate bone and muscle stress during preceding (alternating) days' land or water workout days. My guide is my pain level: aiming to max out effort within OTC pain meds, because tramadol, while nice if the pain gets on top of me, blurs my thinking.
