Yesterday, I ran about 15 miles with Suz and just about died the last 40 minutes of the run. For the rest of the day I had about as much energy as a snail. I don't think I moved around too much for the rest of the day. I wanted to walk most of the last few miles, but Suz pushed me to finish what I started and I'm glad that I did.
My shoulder is progressing nicely. I go to PT twice a week and improving everyday. Nights are still painful and I am unable to sleep without pain unless I take a sleeping pill. I am trying to only take a sleeping pill a few times a week. It's been difficult to get good sleep these days, but if you know me that's nothing new.
My daughter Chelsea, who is 23, recently got diagnosed with Lupus. It makes me sad to think that she got it from me. I hope she does as well as I have done. My heart breaks for her. She is a strong woman and I think she will do well.
