Rough Day (and Night)

February 5th, 2019 at 08:21 am

I started out so tired yesterday, coming off a short night's sleep. I had things to do, however -- a trip to the gym, and then to Sam's, where I bought kitty litter ($14) and groceries ($16). Then I came home to get ready for a mystery shop, which involved a preliminary phone call. On the phone call, I got some odd responses, so I contacted my scheduler to see if I should actually proceed with the shop. He said no, so I was free of that obligation. So I did a load of laundry, and I was just settling down to take a nap, when DIL texted me. She needed help with boys and their schedules -- DS was traveling for work and she was having to work extra hours. I ended up babysitting and chauffeuring until 8:30 pm and I was exhausted when I got home.

I thought I would fall asleep quickly, but my hip was hurting bad and I couldn't get ahead of the pain. I know I was awake until well after midnight. I did sleep until 9 this morning, and I feel better, but I'm going to take it real easy today. However, I still have normal child care duty to do today, and tomorrow will be another long day, with music lessons taking place after school. DS will be incapacitated with oral surgery, and DIL will be tending to him.

My hip pain is getting worse and the surgery won't happen until April 2. I'm going to have to be more aggressive with pain management, but I hate to do anything that might compromise my kidneys. Uh. Old age.

In better news, I got $5 from SaverLife yesterday for promising to save a portion of my expected tax refund. I was, of course, going to do that anyway, but it was nice to get a little boost. Thanks to Patient Saver for recommending the SaverLife site!

    Can you move the surgery up sooner?

    Research tumeric for pain. Specifically Terry Naturally brand. We have found them to work well for pain and without the damage traditional pain meds can do on our liver and kidney.

    I scheduled the surgery at a time when all my caregivers are free, so I don't want to change it. I feel much better today, so I think it is just a matter of getting through a bad day now and then.

    I briefly looked at articles on curcumin and it sounds interesting in terms of chronic kidney disease. Thanks CCF!
