April 14, 2021-day 4
Waking up was tough. My head felt like it weighed 100 pounds! 😣
After I sat up for a minute, hubby wanted me to check my O2; it was fine at 96, despite the feeling that I had either worked out my upper body or someone had wrapped me tightly in saran wrap! 🤷🏽♀️
One cup of coffee (with collagen) and one shower later with eucalyptus, my O2 is 100 and I feel a little more like myself. By the way, I have heard that losing your taste and smell is no fun, but, so far, I still have both. 🥳 (I keep thinking, “taste and see that The Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him” Psalm 34:8)
~Midmorning, I took a walk in the backyard and up the driveway, felt a little more winded than yesterday, but doing okay. I visited my ducks and had a nice conversation with my son who’s at college and checking in; FYI-I have great kids! 💕 I did get a wave of light-headedness while we were chatting, but it passed quickly.
~Afternoon, it was kind of a long afternoon, I just felt heavy. I was fighting a headache and was very focused on taking in as much water with lemon as I could. I normally drink about a gallon a day (Sjogren’s keeps you thirsty 24/7!) However, with this situation, I’m trying to take in even more to stay hydrated and flush out toxins. I may need to start wearing floaties!
I did make it back outside! I walked around the property, wrangled a few ducks that had crossed the road, and moved a few cups of soil. It felt good to my soul. ☀️
Then, my little walkabout caught up with me and I snuggled up for a minute. I stared at the sweet flowers my hubby brought me yesterday and then made a plan to be productive during my “feel good” hours tomorrow. Based on the projected weather, I figure tomorrow is a good day for a charcoal mask, listen to a few podcasts, paint my toes,… a little TLC for myself. 💗. You know what they say, “use your time wisely”! Fear not, I will rest when I need it-but for now, I don’t really feel sleepy, just sluggish and heavy.
The evening started with a lovely dinner made by one of my girlies and while my intention was to read, I could handle a few minutes of Netflix before I decided to turn out the lights. 😴
All in all, it was a good day. My throat didn’t hurt that bad, I barely coughed, got some sun! Guess we’ll see what tomorrow brings! 🤷🏽♀️
Keepin’ it real,
