Great News, the Meniere’s is still staying calm! Virtually no symptoms! Yes, I feel like Dancing!! Since I’ve been feeling better I’ve been doing much more. On Saturday we went to the new outlet mall that recently opened not too far from us. Actually, it was farther than I thought, but we made it. After that long ride, we walked around for a long time. Then we left there, got some lunch, and went to the grocery store. Next, we stopped at the library to pick up a few books I had on hold. Finally, we headed home. I went upstairs to get in more comfy clothes, and saw a print out for an exercise routine that I got off of Faith, Hope, and Fighting Spirit’s Blog. I decided, to try it out. Whew! for someone who hasn’t been exercising, it was intense. Really, it wasn’t so bad, but it calls for many push-ups and I’m really not good at doing push-ups. I am very proud that I got through the whole Total Core Pyramid, and I only skipped a few push-ups. I rested for a while, then made dinner and a friend came over and we watched movies.
What a busy day!
After all of that my hip was hurting so much! It popped and everyone heard it! Ouch! I guess I haven’t been having hip troubles, simply because I haven’t been doing much. When I went to bed my shoulder was hurting so bad after all those push-ups I couldn’t get comfortable. I finally decided to take a pain pill, and it helped. (I took a total of 3 hydrocodone yesterday. The first because I had a headache, the second because of my hip, and the third because of my shoulder.) I don’t think it’s a good thing that I have to take pain pills to get through an active day.
I don’t want to have surgery on my hip again, so I’m going to try to build it up with light exercise, working out in the pool, and having massages. I’m hoping to be able to start going to the pool next week.
My husband is starting a new job on March 16th. He will be working as a contract employee for the first 3 months, then he will be full-time. It’s an exciting and nervous time. This is a much more stable company, and it has better insurance. Of course he won’t have this insurance for the 3 months he is a contract employee, and for the first 30 days after he is full-time, but we will still be on his old company’s insurance, we just have to pay for it. He will still be able to work at home, with great flex time. I just hope he will end up loving what he’s doing! It’s very hard to have a job that you hate, no matter how good the benefits.
To Sum Up:
- Meniere’s is doing great.
- I’m being much more active.
- Hip is not doing so great.
- Hubby has a new job.
Oh, by the way, I’m looking forward to my appointment with Dr. Kaylie on the 14th. I’ll be getting a hearing test and we’ll find out just how much better I really am.
