My head is healed, my lungs are working on it

I slept until 7 am this morning. That's the latest I can remember sleeping in forever. At least I'm well rested. I got up and peed and then went out to the living room and shut the door to the terrace and got my laptop. Both difficult yesterday, easy today.

Then I sat for an hour on the bed and internetted and felt great. I'm thinking... today I'll make sure I can walk around the block and then tomorrow I'll swim!!

Then I got up to take a much needed shower and get dressed and learned that my lungs are in the GREAT when not doing anything but just try and make us work and you'll be sorry stage. But, I'm not sorry, I'm clean. It was a bit of a struggle but at least I don't smell like a nurshing home and have the not washed in a week hair to match. There will be no swimming tomorrow.

But, there will be activity today. As much as I can stand. ljtourist hypothesizes that the most recent flair up could be due to the actual exertion of swimming instead of the chemicals. That maybe I went too hard/long too soon. I honestly do not think that was it because I felt fine for the first hour an a half after the swim. I would think, if the actual exertion was the problem, it would have showed up before I even got out of the pool. BUT what if he's right?

So my new tact is to push myself gently. When I've sat and rested enough to feel fine, I'll get up and do something. Change the sheets on the bed. Walk up and down the hall. Taking the trash down to the dumpster. And if all that works, maybe even go outside. Little things but things. Not just sitting.

That's the plan.

The short term goal is to make it up to Occidental Park (3 blocks from here) tomorrow for lunch from The Pie Truck. I keep missing this every time it gets close. It will be there tomorrow and I plan to be there too. Preferably on foot and not on scooter.
