Restless



Some of my blog readers have noted that a certain level of restlessness has crept into my blog. It's true, I've been feeling cooped up for months now. Currently, it's my slowly recovering leg driving me nuts. All it needs is time and rest, the two things I don't want to do. Unfortunately, there is no rushing it.

It's not like I'm stuck in a hospital bed or anything. I get out and go to different events. Saturday night I went to see the Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young tribute band, Wooden Ships. It was a great time. However, just before the event I'd spent an hour on my back with my foot in air getting the swelling down. I've learned that I really have to do that at least once a day. While it's annoying, I've been able to forgo medication, so that's a good thing.

Walking any distance or pedaling my bicycle takes a toll. With nice weather finally here, those are some the things I'd like to do. I'm planning on launching my sailboat in the lake. If I'm careful, pace myself, and my lovely wife helps, we should be able to launch. Once the boat is in the water, it will be a lot easier to go sailing whenever I want to. Hope that helps with the restlessness.

  2. that's a facet of life I think everybody has to face as they get older. You just can't bounce back like you did when you were younger. Sounds like you are still managing a little variety in life though, that's a good thing.

    1. When we were young, we bounced back. Now that we are older, it's more of a crawl.

      I really can't complain as I get to keep the leg. It just takes time.

  3. Adding some diuretic foods to your diet a couple hours before you raise your foot might let you flush some of the extra fluid out of your system.

    1. Good advice. That's what I've been doing and it helps a lot.
