Good Morning and Happy Monday!
As you can see from the time of this posting, I am still dealing with insomnia, on top of all my other issues. I'm feeling pretty fortunate that my LTD has kicked in, so I can focus on rest when needed, and trying to find ways of feeling better while I wait for an appointment with the Orthopedic surgeon. My pelvic pain has been less aggravating lately, which is a blessing...I really believe my doctor and I have found the right combination of medications to manage my overall pain. I've been in a Fibro flair all weekend, but it's seems to be easing off now...what a relief! The only other issue is my constant hip pain from the FAI (femoralacetabular impingement). I hope the appointment for the surgeon comes thru soon....because I know it's going to take forever for surgery to happen after that.
I'm going to an AquaFit class tonight with a girlfriend and I'm really looking forward to that. I'll do what I can, and if I can keep up, great. If not...no worries...I'll just do my best. We're hoping to do this weekly, so I went and bought a new bathing suit this weekend to inspire me (and it wasn't the usual ordeal shopping this time, since I've lost about 35 lbs in the last 6 months!)
Other than that, life is good here. My daughter starts classes tomorrow to earn her Legal Assistant diploma and my son is taking on an acting manager role at the retail store he works at for the next two weeks...he's currently the Assistant Mgr, and should have his own store by this fall to manage.
Hubby is finishing a paper for his class (he's working on a Bachelor of Theology degree) and I have website work to complete this week, so we're all busy and doing well overall. Even the cat...she got a new catnip mouse!
We're looking forward to lots of sunshine this week...and I hope it's beautiful wherever YOU are! Here's to a really good week in all ways for each of us!
