8.30.13 6-7pm

I've had pt @ 10am this morning and Chris was gonna spot me walking with my cain to see if I can do the distance from the front door of my building to where I catch a ride.My foot was bothering me badly though so I just walked up and down the halls outside my apartment!I did well even dealing with the pain!Next Friday will be the next pt,I'll walk it then pain or not!Then I went to the YMCA and did my strength training!I like it cause not only am I getting stronger its a great way to get rid of my many frustrations:)!

I wanna say a lot  has gone on today but I'm just not sure,tbi moment!I'll start from the beginning.KJ was over this morning and she helped me to get a lot of my favorite songs on my IPhone!She showed me how I can do it but now I forget how,go figure!I've been to the YMCA,had a good workout but I pulled a muscle in my left triceps!I had to ice it down so I couldn't do hics tonight but my triceps feels much beta!I've also scooted to the store not far from here!!

8.26.13 7.30-8 pm

I had pt this morning and did alot of walking using my Cain!I walked up and down the halls outside my apartment!It really tired me out!Not only physically but mentally cause I've really got to think about having the right sequence walking with the cain!Chris suggested I practice walking with the cain in the hallways!I got very tired too and my foot started to  bother me badly so needless to say I couldn't make the YMCA!Walgreens called and said they had some meds ready 4 me anyway so I scooted to Wg's!Then later I scooted 2 the store :) !

KJ was over way long ago and we did all our normal stuff then I was thinking the stylus I just got from Walmart wasn't working!It helps to hit the screen with the right end of the stylus!I got a stylus that is also a pen.It seems like it will help me with my I phone 5 but the real test will come when I try texting someone!Ive had a great workout at the YMCA.I came home and scooted to Wg's with Lisa walking along side :)!Now I gutta do something 4 dinna :)!

8.5.13 around 9pm

I'm thinking about the driving evaluation!Everyone is saying to me "they are just taking your money"!That's why I've asked KJ to go with me,maybe they will realize I want it badly!Its just the last time she did like an eye test and I think I answered all the questions right but she didn't!With KJ there I will feel like I'm not being taken advantage of!
   Tomorrow I get my shots of botox!I can feel its time again,I feel resistance when I try to move any muscles on my right side of my body.
