Healing



I've had so much more energy today. I've been happy and excited to feel so good.
I drove to work in my own manual geared car, by myself, for the first time in a month.
I worked nearly a normal morning. I had one pupil away which made for a relaxed morning.

My catheter wounds were a bit uncomfoartable when driving and  also sitting on some chairs at work. I stood up when sitting was uncomfortable. My bruising has faded a lt and decreased in area.
The cuts where the catheter sheaths were are healing. One has healed over. These cuts were alot bigger than the sites for lines in my arms. They were each about 3mm long. They didn't close straight up like the line entry punctures, instead they had a scab like a scartch or cut.

I haven't noticed many odd heartbeats today. The occasional few whuch i barely notice because they just feel like the little skips I've experienced for years with WPW. I hardly register them.

I don't feel the burn in the same way. It is more of an ache now, that varies in intensity from barely noticeable to mildly uncomfortabel when i'm tired or in an unsuitable posture. Stretching too high doesn't work. I can tell if I try to carry something that's a bit too heavy.

If I bend down to pick something off the floor I feel a bit light headed ie. if my head is hanging down.A bit wierd but I'm sure it is only temporary.

After work I drove home and then Blossom's mummy and I went back into town and went shopping. We were out walking around for about 2 hours. I felt a bit mentally tired but not physically tired.

I was tired when we got home. I sat down sometimes. I went up and downstairs on errands a few times. I pick up Blossom and carry her.

I am amazed at how much more energy I have.
I suppose it is partly because I had exhaustion from taking beta blockers for 3 weeks, but I also suspect that i'm going to have a lot more energy than I have been used to in recent years.

I feel very happy and hopeful. My husband says he is getting his wife back.
