I spent much of the morning making phone calls (trying to keep kids moving between them, so they were never neglected) and now have the next several weeks of therapy and doctors appointments scheduled (other than several call returns I am now awaiting), so it was a productive day on that front. I've shared how much I (DON'T) love talking on the phone now, so I feel rather proud of myself for getting all of that done today. In researching some current symptom concerns, I'm beginning to think the stroke also triggered my thyroid into imbalance, so a couple calls I am awaiting scheduling or returned calls are concerning yet another new doctor to start seeing. :(
I have been really off balance the last couple days. Not quite sure why? I've taken several pretty yucky falls around the house this week, but the worst damage just seems to be a pretty sore left shoulder. Please pray that I will have wisdom to know if there is anything I should be doing differently in getting myself around, to hopefully prevent some of these falls. I even fell (one of my hardest and most shoulder damaging falls all week) crawling across the floor, yesterday!
Now to throw see how things turned out for dinner tonight. Last night I had a MASSIVE FAIL in using a new-to-me Pintrest idea (like my family was trying to get it down without gagging) from a recipe that was touted as being "delicious" on there. Since I have had way more successes than failures from Pintrest (some absolutely simple and brilliant ideas, in fact), I'm being daring and giving Pintrest another shot tonight with a turkey, Mexican "chili." We shall see...
Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.
