Baby Steps

Had my Dr. apt. yesterday and we were happy that there wasn't a collapsed disk. Of course there is the t6 Thoracic compression fracture.

I am having more better days which is a thrill to me and the Dr.. But all this sitting around is not doing me much good in the weight department so starting today I am going to take short walks and advised to remember I will have to walk back. It may not do much for the breathing problem because it is connected to the Thoracic problem but if I can just get out and move more will help with the weight issues.

If it ever cools down here maybe I could at least go a few times a day. So we will see how this works.

My daughter an sil came by last night so she could check up on her momma and hear the latest on this problem. Then she grabbed a couple bags and out to pull weeds and clean up after Fred she went. She knew I wouldn't call her to come do this. Love that kid so much. She has been my life saver through this challenge.

Good Day All


  1. Starting with short walks should do wonders for your morale and your health. Your daughter sounds like a wonderful woman.

  2. Yea! Great news! Take it easy, hoping you will be feeling better soon.

  3. Hi Gypsy,

    Got the walk in felt good but it was already getting really hot. Debbie is an amazing person.

    Hi Karen,

    Yes better than we hoped for. The mending will be a long process but you know that. But having better days is such a blessing.

  4. Glad to hear you're taking the bull by the horns! What would we do without our family???

  5. Hi Sondra,

    I know this is going to take a very long time to heal but at least I have less pain most of the time. The walk was good. I have no idea what I would have done without this kids.
