Our DD wanted me to go with her to her Neurologist’s appointment today, so we packed up the walker, with its brand new tennis balls installed, and headed off to the big city. We met her at the doctor’s and I went up with her. I chose not to take the walker, because I didn’t want to be the center of attention. The doctor was extremely pleased with her progress, and she’s dismissed her finally. Her peripheral neuropathy problems started in mid May of last year, so this has been quite an ordeal for her.
We parted ways after her appointment and we spent a pleasant time browsing through Barnes & Noble books. That’s a treat that I haven’t been able to do for over 4 months now. It was fun being able to move around freely with the walker. I did notice that I got tired very quickly if I stopped and stood still to look at a book for any length of time. My feet would burn and sting and get prickly. So we’d move along to another section and browse there for awhile. I thoroughly enjoyed myself!
We ate out at a buffet for lunch. I couldn’t see how the walker would be of any help, juggling a plate, so we left it in the car. That was a mistake. I realize now that I should have taken it in, walked to the food bar and left it to the side. I could have filled my plate, then DH could have taken both plates back to the table, and I could have used the walker to go back to our table. I’ll know better next time.
Tomorrow’s our Date Day, and I’m looking forward to getting out again!!!
