Day 2and 3

Well Day 2 I never posted as my mother taught me that if I can't say anything nice not to say anything at all so I stayed away from my computer. Rough day. I hate this weather. I really really do. Vitamin D is really on short supply in my system because of the FM and it causes my muscles to contract because I don't get natural sun in the winter. So I have to take 2000mg of VD every day which is a large dose just to get by.

But onto Day 3... took Lareta and Miranda to Children's hospital today to be checked with an ultrasound and a visit with the pediatrician. Her fluid on her kidneys has all gone on her right one and there is just a very slight amount on her left one so the pediatrician gave her a clean bill of health and said she no longer had to go for checkups. GREAT NEWS!! We barely had time to get home when I had to dash over to the Family History Centre for my shift. It was so incredibly busy. I got to learn how to do a bunch of new things and after 3 hours of work I was sooooo ready to sit down. But my pedometer clocked in a 3.2 miles from this afternoon and although my tail bone was burning it was hurting so bad, the muscles were actually really doing well from the constant exersises and bending etc. So the positive thing is if I continue to move I hurt less.

That is wonderful news for Miranda! Yeah!! I am sure everyone is relieved. Very interesting how more movement for you hurts less in the long run. You have taught me something new though - apparently, I lack Vitamin D in my system because my muscles are constantly cramping. The weather and the cold are a deadly combo for me! So, I guess I am off to pick up Vitamin D!!
