November 21 - What I'm Thankful for Today

Today was a total 'me' day as I spent it with the massage pad. My back is almost 100%, but it's not there yet. I'm thankful for the quiet day. I even forgot about my phone that I left on the charger all day. I'm thankful for another first with my knee. When taking a shower, I usually need the leg lifter to get my leg over the side of the tub. Not today. I'm thankful for the food on my table. I made lentil soup today and it turned out fantastic. Okay, not a lot to this day as I spent most of it watching TV and taking care of my back. I'm propped against my pillows as I thought I could work at my computer but that was a bust. As I said, my back isn't 100% yet, but close. What are you thankful for today? Thanks for reading.

What is a massage pad? Whatever it is, glad it's working for your back. No big plans today, was just working for a bit.

This is my massage pad. I got it for Christmas a few years ago from my son's then girlfriend.

That's good you didn't need the leg lifter. Small steps forward will eventually get you where you want to be.

It was a good day. Walked over to Wally World (aka Walmart) to get a few things and was able to get across Mobile Hwy without having to wait in the middle section for the other way of traffic both coming and going (I dont cross at the corner as it is more dangerous than going to the middle section where traffic turns into business to get across as sometimes one side's traffic is heavy between lights and you have to go half way and wait. It was a nice sunny day here with mild temps.

I am thankful to be able to do things and get around. Funny, we had lentil soup at noon today. I had gotten it from the freezer. It was yummy. I am thankful to always have enough food on hand.

Thank you. My knees are better than my back that felt like I was back at square one this morning after a bad night. Right now, it's doing well, but I've been on the massage pad for the past several hours while I watched a good game even though the Pack lost - in OT.

@crazyhorseladycx I spent a very good night and I can say, knock on wood, my back is a lot better this morning. Yeah, it is a bummer, but in every game, there must be a winner and a loser.

I'm glad you are experiencing less pain in your back, that massage pad is doing wonders! And being able to lift your leg up, to climb into the tub? That's a wonderful display of progress!

Thank you. It was good yesterday. Today, I took a pain med for it. I know it's getting better. I just wish it would hurry and do so. Thank you. I'm very happy I can get my leg up over the side of the tub now.

Thank you. This is a leg lifter. You put your foot into the diamond-shaped end and lift.

I don't know about rose-colored glasses, but I do prefer being positive even when things don't look that great.
