The nurse practitioner I saw yesterday referred me to PT. PT can’t get me in until the 12th. She also gave me some exercises which I have looked at and laughed at because many of them require putting weight on my hands and/or kneeling, neither of which I can do due to other problems or require pieces of furniture that we don’t own. All of our chairs but one are lightweight folding chairs, and I’m very unenthusiastic about using those as a base for exercise. I’m also worried that, if I get down on the floor, I won’t be able to get up again.

She also ordered x-rays and thought she saw something worrying in them. The report from the radiologist that came in today said everything looks as expected and, oh, by the way, those are cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal) clips, so I’m assuming that those are what worried her. She was very concerned about the possibility that this is the beginning of something dire. She asked a lot of questions with a neurological/cognitive bent and wanted to know about my recent bowel movements.

Scott has decided that he has to call in tomorrow. He says that the combination of my back with Cordelia’s appointment and Expo means he really, really needs to be home. Him being home in the morning will make it more likely that I’ll be together enough to get him to move the things in the kitchen that I’ve been wanting him to. I can’t reach the lower shelves of the refrigerator, for example, and the shelves where we keep our canned goods are too low for me. I can get what’s right at the front of the top shelf but not anything else.

I’m finding lying flat on my back vastly tedious. I can’t easily type while in that position. Lying on my side doesn’t hurt, but after I do that for even a minute or two, I can’t sit up or stand without severe pain. If I’ve been flat on my back, I can do both with minor trouble.

I’m feeling so very, very tired, enough so that I’m wondering if I should default on Fandom5K. I don’t know if this will be better in two or three days or if it will take weeks. I’ve never defaulted on an exchange, and I quite like the idea I’m working on, but… I don’t know.
