Walking  4  2 July 2015

I had to run, er, walk a couple of errands, even if the nephrologist canceled my appointment for today.   So, I ended up walking 4 miles today, hence this post.

Swimming  30 & 30  1 July 2015

I don't have official permission from either of my podiatrists, but my foot looked calm, relaxed, and willing, so I walked 30 laps & swam 30 laps in the pool this morning.  The feet are still happy.

I saw the new information on about the new season of Face Off.    I'm sure this season will be like the others: Whoever has the best, most impressive bio-write up goes home first.  I'll still do a 'meet the contestants' post, maybe in the next week.  So glad Face Off is returning soon.

Walking  3  28 June 2015

I walked over to Walmart in the wee hours of the morning, before sunrise.   So, here I am logging the three miles walked.   Now the kitchen is stocked for the week.   My foot is okay, merci Seigneur.

And my mouth is full of white chocolate peanut butter.  Yum.

Swimming  35 & 35  25 June 2015

I was able to swim 35 laps and walk 35 laps in the pool today.  Yeah, then I nullified the whole experience by eating pizza for lunch.

Maybe tomorrow will be better.

Swimming  30 & 30  23 June 2015

I was able to handle 30 laps swimming, and 30 laps walking.   Yeah, even after I walked 3 miles.  Foot seems the same.

Well, no, that's a lie.   I can't figure out what's up with the foot ulcer wound.  Also, I injured the side of my foot ripping off a bandaid.  Yes, when I hit the store this morning, I got lots of thick gauze and paper-thin adhesive tape.   I will survive.

Walking  3  23 June 2015

I woke up at 5:30a and, on a whim, walked over to Walmart to get a few items.   Don't you worry, I'm being good, no unauthorized food(s) before they test my blood tomorrow morning.

So, that means I walked 3 miles today.   Not a lot, but it's something.

The energetic cashier reminded me of Shangela out of drag.   That put a smile on my sleepy face.

Swimming  25 & 25  22 June 2015

I swam 25 laps & walked 25 laps this morning.   I love being able to hit the pool nearly every day.  I do hope to up my laps, but my foot says not yet.  I've got 2 superficial wounds, one from merely tearing off a bandaid.  Ugh.

I get blood work done on Wednesday, I see the original podiatrist on Friday, and then the nephrologist (kidney specialist) on the following Thursday.  THEN I might know whether my kidneys are gonna hold up or be the end of me, and how soon that might be.  My mother died from kidney failurein 2012, so of COURSE that is on my mind.

I have no idea at this point what to expect.  I have felt the kidney pain in the last month, and that is not a good sign.   I do want to live forever, but if health isn't part of the equation, what will my plan for persevering be?   So many unknowns.

Well, I know I want Futurama to return.
And, I can hardly wait for PR & FO to return next month.
