That's was interesting.
This blog is going to take me a very long time to type. I type over a hundred words a minute, but this is being typed one letter at a time. Why? Because everything freaking HURTS!! Our first trip with me taking over more of the work and Joe lifting and pushing differently. Because of Joe's therapy and restrictions we've been travelling with my power chair in tow. So I haven't been pushing. I've gotten out of the habit of pushing myself down long hallways and up long aisle ways.
Today I've pushed myself farther than I have in weeks. I conquered a carpet that was thick and plush, great on the tootsies, terrible on the wheels. I felt my muscles strain as I made my way over the carpet. I swear that the carpet offered more resistance than Joe did on our first date. It was brutal. I helped get the chair into the car, I helped in the grocery store, I wheeled for freaking miles.
I have to go to the bathroom but it'll have to fall out because I can't push anything more today.
This was a wake up call for me. I need to get back in pushing shape. It hasn't taken long to get out of shape with getting around in the chair.
Forgive the long pause but I had to put my hands in my lap and rest my arms. Holding them up to type, even with one finger, is more than I can bear.
So, good night for now, I just can't type another
