Life is getting Normal

Not sure if I can believe it, but life is getting back to normal. Except for pain and still being tired, the days are filled with normal stuff like work, chores, laundry, dishes and all that includes. I am no longer getting meals delivered and as much as I miss the delicious meals, I am doing ok cooking my own meals. I am trying to pack lunch everyday and I am eating a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch and quesadillas for dinner, but at least it is nutritional and I am eating.

I went for a walk/run the yesterday. I am walking for 9 minutes and running for 1 minute. After 30 minutes I thought I was going to melt and drop right there on the path, but I did the entire 30 minutes. I am getting there – 5K here I come.

The next step is to getting my bike together, find a bike pump and go for rides to get ready for the Booty ride.

I went back to the pain specialist/surgeon last week and had another nerve block. It is amazing how much it helps – almost instantly. It only takes 15 minutes to start and it can last a couple days. We decided when we do the surgery we will cut the affected nerves at the same time. He is planning to do the surgery laporscopically. It is outpatient and the recovery should only be two weeks. It looks like that will happen in late September.
