Wednesday, March 24, 2021 – Rough Day

Hi Babe,
It was a tough night last night, I was pain all evening and into the night, ended up having to take a couple of generic Tylenol PM, which put me under pretty quickly. It also made me sleep late, it was after 10 by the time I woke up. My knee was definitely much more swollen yesterday and last night, only a little better this morning, and it still hurt like crazy, so I was barely able to do just a couple of my PT exercises all day. Spent the day icing in the hopes of making it better. I feel like this was a real setback, and likely unnecessary, I’m going to have to make sure I don’t let it get that bad in PT again, even if it takes a little longer in the end. I’m getting tired of being in pain, and I was feeling really good on Monday, but now I feel like I did last week. The good news is the latest covid stimulus package included a COBRA insurance subsidy for six months, starting on April 1, so that means I’ll be able to keep my health insurance at no cost until September. Hopefully by then I’ll be able to get my covid vaccinations and get a contract that will allow me to get the regular insurance back again before it runs out. Perfect timing on that, I must say. Anyway, I’ve been adding ginger tea and ginger snap cookies to my diet, since ginger is supposed to be good for inflammation, and after about the fifth or sixth course of icing, my knee was feeling a bit better, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to sleep without taking any more pills. They just knock me out too hard. Hopefully, I’ll be back on track tomorrow! Meanwhile, it’s time for shower and bed. Good night, darlin’! Love you!
