This has been a rough week, my dad was in the hospital on Tuesday with chest pains, so far, the docs just think it's a combo of stress and acid reflux. Also on Tuesday both of my wrists started hurting and were pretty stiff. I just assumed I had hurt myself during the previous night's workout. But the pain spread to my elbows, knees and ankles. I visited the ER Saturday night and was diagnosed with Viral Arthritis/Arthralgia. Pain. And lots of it. Most days this past week I couldn't drive, shower, or fix my hair. I was depressed because I am a very independent person who was having to be dependent on everyone. Especially my husband who was helping a lot more (Thanks Baby!) and having to help me bathe, and get dressed. It was stressful. It's not over just yet, but I am feeling better tonight. I went to church and just being there in the presence of God and my church family really lifted my spirits. I am still in some pain, and am mainly stiff from not using my limbs as much, but I am hopeful. The doctor expects this to resolve itself within the next week. Thank God!
I had a gain of 3.3 lbs (265.9) this week, but I am sure this is from water retention. All of my joints were/are pretty swollen. I did great with water this week, and ate well.
I will be taping my Mamavation Mom application vlog sometime this week. I am going to visit my Nurse Practitioner to get a release letter so that I can participate in Mamavation, if I am chosen. Thanks for all the support and encouragement you all have provided this week as I have been through SO much! I love you all!
