On this rainy morning, I took Shadow out for his morning walk and made it all the way around the block. That is only two tenths of a mile, but it is further than I have walked for a time now. I then made my way to the Falmouth Hospital to get an Xray and an EKG that are necessary for my upcoming back surgery. I had to wait more than an hour for the EKG, so it was after noon when I returned home. I made a huge arugula, beet, and sheep’s milk feta salad for lunch and then succumbed to the overwhelming feeling of sleepiness that I think is caused by the medication I am taking for the nerve pain. Until three days ago, I was taking this medication along with Prednisone and somehow the combination didn’t make me a sleepy head, but without the Prednisone, at about 2 pm in the afternoon, I just can’t keep my eyes open. So today I took a nap and didn’t get up until almost 4 pm. I went out in the rain and played fetch with Shadow, drove over to check on the Goldstone’s kitties and fish, and came home and fixed dinner. That’s it for my day.
