What a weekend! I am so tired but not because of my MS, I am tired because I have been work-work-working! I worked on the garage all day Saturday with my parents, moved everything out, organized, threw stuff away, cleaned, etc. Today I worked on the backyard all day. I can’t remember the last time I was tired because I should be instead of being tired because of MS… I think I can say I am getting better finally!
So like I said, today was back yard time. I moved some stepping stones into place but did not set them yet. I transplanted an Aloe Vera plant from one side of the yard to another where the Bird of Paradise used to be. I started working on my gate to the garden and I also started working on a path to the garden. Cleared the weeds, flattened the dirt, laid down some plastic. some bricks, and then buckets and buckets of stone. I am a little sore from all the shoveling and lifting but it feels good! I also put up a white piece of lattice in place of the chicken wire I had up to keep the dogs away from the A/C units. Oh yeah, I put in a pipe with some holes next to the orange tree for better watering, cleaned out the drain thingy, and I potted some more Aloe Vera that was sprouting next to the main plant. I got a decent amount done I would say for a dude who was in and out of a wheelchair 6 months ago, maybe not even that long?
My balance is obviously way better and my endurance as well! Usually I get tired after five minutes of light work and if I pushed myself like this I would relapse but looks like I am doing ok. My vision is a tad better (I think) and so is my strength. I have not used my cane in a while as well, my walking is way better, just some core issues for now. I think since I have not been walking much and doing all that I am doing all year my core strength just died! I will fix that, but either way, things are finally turning around! So I am happy for that!
Ummm… I am pretty tired right now but I was tired all day, before I even started to work. It’s like if I keep moving I am good but as soon as I stop I start shutting down. I think I have to go actually, I am having a hard time typing and thinking but I just wanted to do a quick update. I will try to write more in depth tomorrow! Take care!
