The humidity is killing me! We were outside, me and my 2 day laborers, it was fairly cool, but after a few minutes, I was soaking wet. We were preparing for father's day on Sunday. We are having the wife's family here for a cookout, we have kind of taken over the responsibility, and are thrilled to do so. I was hoping my mother was going to make the trip up for a few days, I have to check to see the plan. I think we are having BBQ country spare ribs, corn on the cob, and cole slaw, can't wait.
Bioness called today, they are replacing the cuff that the electrodes sit in, mine has so many magic marker circles on the inside, it looks like it's 50 years old. The electrodes seem to be working better now that I'm not hydrating them prior to putting on the cuff. It is much easier to do without the water also, especially if I have to take the brace off for any reason away from home. I'm able to walk farther with each passing week, and walk stronger, that is to say steadier. Now if I can get rid of the swelling, all will be well.
I am going to stop taking the LDN, I have decided it isn't really doing anything. Trying to be positive, I think I was trying to convince myself that the leg cramps had lessened since I began taking it. I think the cramps went away because of the stretching I was doing at physical therapy. I say that because the cramps have returned, and I'm not stretching anymore. The new plan is to stop the drug, replace it with stretching, and see if the cramps subside again. The good news is I can always start it back up if the cramps get too bad.
