Second day at home recuperating from pneumonia-- after lunch
Had the biggest meal I've had in weeks. Couple bites of cole slaw, one whole piece of fried fish, potato wedge, stewed tomatoes, lemonade, diabetic ice cream. A veritable feast compared to my fare since I've been sick. I had learned to live without eating, and now I have to start over.
A caregiver applied cortizone ointment to that part of my anatomy that was getting bedsores and needless to say a portion of me that I cannot reach for myself.
Another caregiver attached a four inch lift to my toilet. This morning I had to pull the emergency cord to get help to get off the toilet. Now I should be able to manage by myself. I can't wait until I have to go again.
I took my scooter outside (in the real air) to take some photographs for my journal. I toured the inside of our facility checking out the new furniture that arrived while I was in the hospital. This activity made me cough so I took a hit from my inhaler.
Then I wrote this entry. whew. What a busy afternoon.
I think I need some of that prescribed bed rest.
