Rain.. Rain.. Go Away
Happy Saturday!! Wet it is!!
It has been a very wet late summer into autumn. Of all the years, I don't remember NY ever being this wet .. then again, this may only be due to the fact that my ankle is in recovery.
Wow... what a week!! And more to come.
This week, I took the train to work. For the first time I did not bring my crutches. And I tried it for one day only. That meant walking to and from Grand Central. I say walk because we are not about to go into November, I do not want have the risks of carrying crutches when the snow hits the ground. Bring on crutches and carrying a book bag doesn't help the balance nor recovery. This is primary reason to start pushing at recovery. More importantly, it is now 3 months, and it seems more ready on the bone -- as the x-rays show.
However, while this is a push, it's necessary. My sanity is in need of the ankle to recover ASAP! I can't deny that the exhaustion from the pain is immense, where even for someone who is caffeine sensitive doesn't even have nay effects. So while I am not at the office full time, the half time that I am has been very draining and exhausting. I mean I can't stay awake and the energy is depleting fast. Pain coming from the complications of this injury.
Strangely, having been on Eliquis seemed to have altered my taste buds. But this whole entire experience has been altering, or maybe I should say resetting my body. It's quite different. We shall see, and I must be careful and steer this carefully indeed.
Let's see what this week will bring.
End of Tuesday It Is
Usually Tuesday's are the toughest days for me.. it's because Monday starts a new week, Tuesday is kinda just in the middle of the week and nothing there, then by Wednesday you are in the middle of the week, and from there it's just closer to the weekend. It's great we have two day weekends. However, weekends nowadays fly by so much faster than ever before.
Especially when medical events take over. Apparently have a DVT is a really alarmed event. And I just gotta be really careful and take everything really easy... it's great usually, but it's become somewhat of a nuisance.
It's a well known fact that we need physical therapy coming out of an injury for fracture/ bone break. But when DVT and tendonitis is involved all on the same leg as the injury, it really gets tricky. Everything and juggling on working full time, but part-time from home. 'Til this day, coming to three months, walking to and from the train station to the office is still not an option.
But as a result of the DVT, doctors tells me that should walk slow and controlled so my body with the DVT can adjust. Keeping it intact would be very beneficial for sure.
Gosh, sometimes I just want to run, even if it breaks. (considering is not hanging on by much at present, the re-injury is a high chance.) I want to out of my own impatience. But realistically and knowing myself I know it's going to drag me down more if I get an injury on top of another one.
This injury continues to put different perspectives and changing me.
Happy Hump Day!
The rays of the sun warmed my bed this morning as I rose. Then as driving back to my place, it was into the gray and cloudiness. Such is the truth, isn't it? So much that is going on and what we don't face all the time, or sometimes not at all.
It's been over a year since I lost my father, but the emptiness still remains. When I lie down in quietness and have a moment to myself, it feels like a large part of me on gone. Adding along with that, the past two and a half months it's been about recovering the fracture of my ankle. Life doesn't get easier as we get older. The only factor is that we learn to manage what is going on and what is to come. Time and space is often needed to face all that is going on: good, bad, ugly, pretty...
Life is on a one-way fast track
Time moves only forward never back
In business everything comes in stack
Random words are viewed as an attack
Glimpse of happiness felt in the flashback
Love and faith will always be in my shack
It ended up being a great and a terrific day. Started off gray and the very wet.. but the rain has been too much lately that it's tough. This is mostly contributed to my limited mobility and trying to heal the ankle at the same time. However, I do like it when it pours.. and that it did today. Just felt like a cleansing day.. indeed it is. A new year to start and a wonderful new beginnings it will be. Whatever it will be, I will start the change from me. My mentality, frame of mind.. i am going to be positive. Continuing to grow and mature, to challenge myself to be a better person through my speech thoughts, and actions!
Many surprises and friends popped up and showed their love today and sent me so much well wishes. It turned out to be a wonderful day. Thank you all. I love you all.
Buckets and buckets of water
Puddles form into flooding manner
Streets size is of no matter
Rinse of the plants brings its' vigor
Scenery is a beauty with glamor
Awaiting the sun.. for now i'm just an admirer
Started off yesterday with a wonderful weekend and it was great!
Hung out with my two lovely nephews and I've missed them so much that I time we had just flew by. And as they say, good times fly by always! We didn't do much, had some snacks and then board games. But their laughter was my best medicine. And that time with them and the happiness is something I have not had in such a long time... at least it felt like a long time.. about three months time. I'm so very lucky to have wonderful nephews as them!
In this three months time I realized that they are also growing up very quickly. This is simply because they now have lives of their own. Life comes faster than we know, even at the ages of elementary school and junior high. From here it's only going to get busier!!
Then today, mom and i went out and celebrated our birthdays. Since our birthdays this year falls on the weekday. And the last time October 6 fell on a Saturday was 2013 and our birthdays are both on weekdays as well. (Thanks to Facebook, i was reminded of the family celebration we had Oct 6, 2013. The photos were great!!)
Mom and I, our birthdays are a day apart. And yet, this is the first year we celebrated just the two of us for our own birthdays. I'm starting a new tradition. And I do like that we had our own time today. Then of course, I will be with her the night of her birthday and I plan to bring a cake home for her. It will be splendid! Planning to also work from home that day and I'll make her some noodles, which she just loves noodles to begin with. Looking forward to a wonderful week.
Happy October - Autumn
I just love October.. it's Autumn and autumn is beautiful in the Northeast region, here in the US. It's absolutely beautiful. I really love the weather and the scenery. The changing color of the leaves is gorgeous, absolutely breath-taking. The hot apple cider is delicious just as we are coming out of the apple picking season. The pumpkin pies are coming on the horizon.. and pecan pies too. Very exciting season and time of the year!
Life is here now!
Here is the space where I will share about my passion and life.
