a very positive day..
these images are from the okc.bombing and now the memorial site..
today was so much better than the weekend had been..this morning my mom and i both went early to my therapy and she got to watch the therapists do my leg..she was still just in awe as how to do this and how do you walk like that she asked..its not easy i say..and its not..but i am getting better..
i went and walked this evening when we got back from wendys..now iam going to tell you all what i eat and you tell me if its okay..i know i probably should change the burger but its the cheapest for me right now..i eat for breakfast a cup of cereal ..honey nut cheerios..and very little milk..then in the afternoon i eat wendys..so i get the jr.double cheeseburger combo..now i was getting the side salad instead of the fries but i have been just counting the calories and its only 630 when you have the combo..so i always count it in..then i always have a small diet drink..and we usually end up going thru the drive thru of braums and get a small cone..just 220 calories and of course breakfast is 150 calories so i have something small in the evening if i have enough calories and never drink reg.pop now..i used to drink so much reg.pop that i would put on a pound a day just in pop..i now just drink dt.pop and i am trying to get used to water again..
i had a good walk today..i walked a mile this evening without the walker..and that was a hard thing to do because my legs are just not balanced yet..but i did good..and i came back sweatin..it felt like i had 10 pounds of weights on my legs..not a fun feeling..my mom and i had a good day..it was us most of the day together and we enjoyed watching television and sleeping some..hehe
my therapists thinks that i will be in compression hose in two weeks..so iam excited about that..but wow they are expensive..i hope they will do the job..im getting so tired of these legs not looking normal..i was talking to my friend tonight about things i could learn how to cook..im not a cook, but i would love to learn and i intend too..i just dont know what to fix anymore for my family and what to learn thats not expensive to buy..but i will learn it and become a cook one day..
this was the day of the okc.bombing and he killed 168 people babies as well..its been a somber day all day for everyone..even if its a good day for us individually, its been a sad day thinking of all the people who died because of 2 men who were sick in the head..15 years ago came and went..i remember on that day that minute i was picking my sister up at her house and i was turning on her tv to regis and kathy lee and all of a sudden i felt it..it felt like an earthquake and all of a sudden the tv went to the news..it was something i wont ever forget..
well this has been a very good day..and i am looking forward to another great day..
have a good night..
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
