Another scorcher; according to The Weather Network, it felt like 40 degrees today. I had no idea that Toronto was actually Cancun. Soon going to run around everywhere in my bikini; why not, right?
night was my first night feeding in Toronto. It went well, no leaks, no
problems. Well, I guess a problem would be the gazillion times I wake
up to pee at night (the feeds are liquid). My bladder doesn't even care
if I'm in the middle of a dream. Please! However, I will
forgive...soon I will be HUGE!
If anyone wants to
volunteer to be my feed bag cleaner on a daily basis that would be cool.
I pay in sarcasm and the opportunity to learn how to cough like a
champ. My first-thing-in-the-morning cough is one that would make any
We're getting this subway thing down. Hopped on the right train, going the right way. We are just that good.
Freaky sighting of the day: Buddy standing on the corner of King and Church with a snake. Yup, just your normal Thursday. The new chick magnet?? Forget a baby or a puppy...get a snake!
Physio was actually pretty fun today. I met Hélène
Campbell today. I'm sure you've heard of her; Beiber...Ellen DeGeneres.
It was exciting to meet another post-transplant patient, especially one
who's such an advocate for organ donation. She's a fun girl; hopefully
Brad and I didn't overwhelm her with our sarcasm and crazy talk. I can
tell you that I talked way more this time at physio than ever before.
Even while on the treadmill. Buddy from Vital Aire wouldn't like that.
"You need to not talk while you're walking."
Unfortunately, my blood sugar dropped to 2.4 while on the bike. Brad, like a hero, rushed to get my OJ. Next time I will test prior to physio and again after. I need to start recording every action I take: every morsel of food, every sip of fluid and every time I exert myself. Diabetes likes to mess with me, but someday soon I'll be laughing at it.
It got crazy here for a bit. Black clouds swept through. Storm slammed in. I was out on the balcony with the G-man when it seemed like somebody "turned the lights off", I look up and the clouds were real angry. Wind started blowing, bodies were thrown all around, up and down the street. I may be kidding about that, but the dust that was swirling and ended up in my eyeballs was not a joke.
Then...the thunder rolled and the lightning striked. Just ask Garth.
Off to watch the OKC/Miami game. Can the Miami Heat please lose tonight? If that happens, I will work extra hard in physio tomorrow.
