Weekly Ephemera #58

  • This week we started setting up physical therapist, occupational therapist, home health aid, and visiting nurse visits for Mom going forward.  These services are paid by Medicare for the next nine weeks.

    Mom was getting better after the shock of breaking her arm.  Getting her off the pain meds they gave her (and moving to ordinary acetaminophen) improved the strength and stability of her legs.  By mid week we were no longer staying with her twenty-four hours.  The Wife visits her in the morning and I visit in the evening to help her with things she can't do with one arm.  This situation has reduced the stress level for everyone I think.
  • I restarted my walking this week.  I did two long walks with short, one mile around the block ones in between.  My total miles this week was 20.1 miles (32.3 km).  I plan to walk seven days a week with two or three long walks (seven or more miles) with short one mile walks in between.

    For those who are wondering why I am walking.  I am not training for any future long walks like the Camino or AT.  I'm walking now to reduce my blood sugars for my health.  Age has a way of changing your motivations.
