Actually, it's a testament to my increasing health and stamina that I haven't been sitting and posting so much the past couple of weeks. The truth is that even though I still have physical issues and don't have the strength or the energy that I did seven years ago, the hard work I'm doing in physical therapy is really paying off.
On the one hand, it's not doing a whole lot about the bone pain I seem to still be having. And that, of course, doesn't make me happy.
On the other hand, it is greatly helping me with strength, flexibility, and endurance. I've made huge strides in these areas in the past month. And so even if therapy can't do anything about the bone issue, it can help me strengthen the areas around the bone and also help me to build up stamina. Part of my problem in the past few years is that I can't seem to build stamina because I start hurting long before I can start pushing myself energy-wise. The therapy is helping me find ways to get in shape and work around my pain. So now when I have lower pain days and can manage to be on my leg for a while, I don't tire so easily. That is, for me, a huge blessing.
Then, as a result, I've been able to take on some projects in the house that have had a physical component, and that's also included quite a bit of shopping. Consequently, I haven't spent hours and hours in my recliner reading, ruminating, and posting on the world's wonders and outrages. I'm sure you'll all be fine without most of it despite my vague sense that my opinions are indispensable ;-)
So...if you're wondering what's up with me, it's me that's up. And that's a good thing.
