04:25hrs. I woke, feeling so sapped and narcoleptic. This, despite my having just been in the arms of Morpheus, for the most extended sleep I’ve had in years! (At least I think I had). And yet unwanted ignavia, persisted? I believe that I’d slept for about eight-and-a-half hours!
Thinking about it, I suppose the therapy exercises with Nurse Sue yesterday, might have taken more out of me than I thought?
I heaved my crassulent torso from the £300 second-hand, c1968, gungy-beige recliner, and took the two steps to use the EGPWWB (Emergency Grey Plastic Wee-wee Bucket). I was benumbed when I found it almost a third-filled. I have no recollections of waking up to use it during my nocturnal head-down? I shall resist telling you of what it looked like, apart from unnatural. I added to the quantity without much pain for once. Still thick and coloured a pale yellow, damn it, I’ve told you now. Hehe! A new bowdlerisation or an acronym for today’s latest style of wee-wee would be a TCRWW (Thick-Colourful-Reluctant-Wee-Wee). But more aggressive than those of recent days. It seems the Nitrofurantoin antibiotic tablets are doing their job, I hope.
I took the medications, including the Nitrofurantoin, and carried out the Health Checks.
Then off to the wet room, for a shave, wash, teggies and scrub up. Applied the pain gel generously on the Arthur Itis and Axonotmesis affected legs and knees. Then Haemorrhoids Harold was creamed. The next job, tackling the Sock-Glide, which was a log, difficult job today. PPs and togs on. Deorisational spraying and aftershave applied. Both pairs of Spectacles cleaned. Hearing aids de-waxed. Olive oil inserted in both of the lug-holes. And off to make a mug of tea.
On the way to the kitchen, the right arm, hand and leg went off on one of their Shaking Shaun episodes, a vicious one. Nothing could be done, so I just waiting, glad that no one was there to see it, and waited for the bout to stop. Luckily, I had the walking stick with me when it arrived. The fingers were reluctant to stop the shakes, but all the other affected areas calmed down to a stop for me, in about ten minutes or so. Much longer than usual.
I made the brew, and got on the computer, to update yesterday’s diary. Which was a little farcical! With the finger ends jumping all over the place each time I hit the keypad; a lot more time correcting was spent than typing. Then, just to make things a bit more interesting, the violent sneezing started! Humph!
The Carer, Anton arrived and soon had the Ankle-Support fitted. He’s mastered the job now.
Back to the computer and: Most annoyingly…
I battled on against the ailments, the Liberty-Global Internet and repetitious amendments, and got the post finished and sent off, eventually. Worra life! Hehe!
I made a start on creating the draft for this post. When another Shaking Shaun episode arrived. But this one only lasted for the more usual few minutes. I began to type again and realised I had to take an antibacterial tablet. So took it, and made another cuppa. Then I got the potatoes baking in the oven.
Then onto CorelDraw to make some Page Headers and Thoughts to use for tomorrow’s blog.
Josie called. I plan to get the meal ready for 13:00hrs, so she can get the bus put to visit her family in time.
Stopped computerising to take care with the nosh.
Delivered Josies, then got mine sorted.
Again I couldn’t eat it all, but the cheesy potatoes got devoured completely!
I think the new medications are making me more tired, lose my appetite, and struggle with the wee-weeing. Tsk!
Josie returned the plates etc. I’m so glad she enjoyed it.
Did the washing up, took the antibiotic tablet and settled down to watch some TV. I was soon asleep again, a deep one.
But the need for another wee-wee woke me up (luckily!), and things were changing for the better I think. I passed what must have been half a cup. That’s more then I have moved in a long time. So the Nitrofurantoin is working with the infection.
Back down in the £300 second-hand recliner, and nodded off again.
Woke in need of another wee-wee. Washed up and took the medications, changed into the nightwear, and again nodded off.
Woke up to use the Porcelain Throne, but things were still hard and solid, although a little evacuated, painfully. Humph!
The rest of the kipping was intermittent throughout the night. I kept waking with a different problem or worry on my mind each time. It was heavy going.
