day three, and another thing

I didn't want to get up this morning. Actually, when I went to bed last night, I didn't want to get up this morning. I'm tired.

But, I got up, ate my breakfast, and put on my walking clothes. This time, I showered when we returned from our walk. We also took bottles of water with us...the sun is hot! So far today, I don't have a "burst" of energy to sustain me for the rest of the day. I napped for an hour and half...and before I fell asleep, I told myself that I would get out of bed when Jason did (he has to return to work)...and I did.

Yesterday, we ended up not walking at all. It was muggy out when we had finished dinner, so we watched the Blue Jay game instead.

What I neglected to mention is that I got an extra bit of a work-out on Monday evening. A work-out for the arms..at least! Jason and I played boxing on our Wii. It was my first time trying it out, as well as tennis. The boxing involved a constant flailing of arms (or at least that's how we played)...real boxing movements, without the resistance of hitting something (or someone). My arms are still paying for it!

I have to go for yet another "extra" blood test this week. Despite the hepatologist seeing me, and saying that all is good...my MS doc feels that the blood work from June 13 is a significant increase from previous. So I have to go again this week (instead of one month from the 13th) to make sure that the 13th was not the beginning of a "big jump".

Going for a blood test isn't a big deal. Repeatedly going for blood tests, thinking that one day the doc is going to yank me off my Rebif is what I don't like. I just want anything involving MS treatment to be a silent part of life...not a constant question.

I'm going to water the flowers now...

Good for you for getting up, Em. Way to go! I hope the heat and humidity break soon so you might actually enjoy the walk.
Hi to Jason!
Love,
