Busy busy week!
We spent almost all of it either preparing for the painters or living in a construction zone while the painters worked from Monday morning until late Thursday. We picked a light gray for almost everything (SW Repose Gray) and a slightly deeper gray for the kitchen and bathrooms (SW Dorian Grey). They also painted all of the doors and trim and ceilings and holy moly it’s amazing how good it looks! Once the house is put back together I’ll post some pictures.
We had a doctor’s appointment on Wednesday and everything is looking good. I’ve gained about 35 pounds…way more than I intended to, but still not too bad. My blood pressure was also much better this time – 132/78! For someone who has dealt with hypertension – and white coat hypertension – and freak yourself out and raise your BP hypertension – I’ll take any good reading! When we left, Shane again complimented me on how well I’m/we’re doing. It’s been a pretty hellish 8 months in general so I’ll take whatever I can get. Thankfully, I’m ultimately feeling good. The foot swelling is uncomfortable and hurts a lot. I’m not a fan of how tired I am or that I need help standing. But otherwise, I feel great!
