The 12th of February.
Oh, God, a third day of pain?! Surely I did not do enough to warrant this. It’s less bad than the last two days but still, this feels uncalled for.
This morning, once I’d hauled myself out of bed, we had to be out of the house for my 10am blood test at renal clinic. I haven’t checked if the results have come through yet; I need to see what my potassium’s doing, if I need to start taking diuretics for a bit. I haven’t felt any palpitations which would indicate high potassium so I’m not overly concerned. We were in and out in about ten minutes – they are speedy when all you need is bloods.
On the way home, we stopped off at the GP to put in my repeat prescription and Tesco for some beer for Chris’ birthday, then we were home by just after eleven. I wrote up a blog post, then had beans on toast for lunch because it has been freezing today. This afternoon, Daddy and I went to see Deadpool. We thought we’d got Gold Class to ourselves, but were joined by four more people, two of whom were a bit chatty for my liking. I shushed them. The film was many things: bizarre, amusing, gross, smart. There were some badass ladies and some scenes I’d rather not have watched with my dad but hey ho, we don’t talk about that.
Home now, just hoping I might be able to walk properly tomorrow.
The 13th of February.
No more muscle pain today, but random back pain has been plaguing me all day, right in the shoulder blade again. I can’t blame coughing because I’ve barely done any, so I don’t know, maybe I just slept in a weird position? I only took some co-codamol for it about two hours ago and it has actually worked, so now I’m annoyed I didn’t try that earlier.
I had thought I might go back to the gym today if my muscles were okay but my back put paid to that, so my morning was just Saturday Kitchen and reading the paper, adjusting my position every so often to try to alleviate the pain.
After lunch, I finally got the to the end of season three of Pretty Little Liars and started season four, the first episode of which is just basically a recap of everything so far. I finished crocheting the third section of the sides of the paddling pool, now just have to make the base and put it all together. I hope it is worth it in the end.
