Good morning... how is everything going this morning? It's been raining here this morning, so it looks like it will be one of those dark, dreary days, unless the rain passes on through quickly. It's been cooling off the past few days, leaves are turning colors and falling off the trees - fall is definitely in the air.
I'm still sporting my broken foot, though it has begun to feel some better over the past few days. I've been pretty faithful with using my knee scooter so I'm not on my foot per doctor's orders. I've even learned how to get my scooter up/down steps and to load it into the van so I can go places on my own, though I only do that when husband is busy.
I'm sure you've read/heard by now that the governor of my state has opened the state 100% and forbidden cities/counties to implement mandates on their own. I did meet a friend yesterday that I haven't seen since Christmas. I was somewhat appalled at the number of people not wearing masks or bothering to social distance. Perhaps that could account (at least partially) for the fact that the number COVID cases is rising in my county, and even in my zip code. Other than the meeting with my friend, we still aren't going out much except for doctor's appointments, etc.
This coming week will be busy with appointments - tomorrow I see my chiropractor in the morning and eye doctor in the afternoon. Tuesday is my appointment with the endo. He's been very unsympathetic regarding my hypothyroid symptoms (claiming they aren't thyroid related in spite of very low hormone levels) and I'm doubting that he will do anything in regards to my moderately suspicious thyroid nodule so I'm running out of reasons to continue seeing him, since I expect the appointment to be somewhat contentious which ends up being worse on me than anything else.
Because of my foot, I'm still not able to do much in the line of exercise, but am still trying to curtail eating. I'd been lucky enough to halt my weight gain and even lost a pound, but it appears that I've gained that back plus another pound... Pretty discouraging.
My neighbor/walking partner will be returning for the winter on Saturday... unfortunately, I won't be able to walk with her, at least right away. I see the orthopedic doctor a week from tomorrow and hopefully, will get out of my walking cast but that remains to be seen.
So that's me - I'm pretty much stuck where I've been the past few weeks. What about you? I hope you've had a successful week and are doing great.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
