How does she do it???

How does Mandy do it… (Inspirational Leader)… the young woman was in a bad car accident and came back from the worse kind of brain injury and rides in competitions on a specialized bike and I can’t get through a workout, without hurting something!!!!

I envy the young, even Mandy… her drive an determination are very inspiring, she will go far, if she chooses…

I have never been a person who was into exercise…

I do remember in Alabama, that I would get on my bike and go spend the day at the pool, skipping lunch, an little did I know, it was the best exercise for the multiple spinal cord injuries I had sustained by that age…

I didn’t mind keeping house, that was so easy to keep up, it took no effort and chasing after kids… just the same as when I was growing up…

But the military… that changed everything and everything I did, to get into shape, hurt and hurt in ways that were not normal… as I found out all these years later…

The doctors tried, up to a point, until the rape an attempted murder of my kids on a federal installation… then it was make it up as you go and get her out of the country before she blows a cork… that did come later… the cork…

What gets me… even neuro thinks they will find more injuries… I’ve tried to remember my arm in a sling, for a broken collar bone, an I have a vague memory, but nothing that jells into a solid memory… so, I agree, they will find more broken bones I didn’t know about…

As for the strokes… I wrote early on, that I thought I could have had multiple mini strokes… and I don’t know if that counts for the blood on the brain or if nothing shows up on that, next neuro appointment I’ll have some questions…

But after El Paso worked my leg and I came too in post op with blue fingers and the memory, something was really wrong… I’m betting I had a stroke on that operating table an they covered it up… hubby remembers me telling him in recovery about the blue fingers…

It does set the table for a major stroke, which could kill me or leave me with lasting issues… but the MRIs show no problem with that kind of vessel, so, not a big concern… it’s there, but not in the fore front…

I do remember pushing for bone issues… all the way to Japan an back an I have a feeling, if I work real hard at the memory… neurology was never really involved in my care… so, doctors and myself… got it wrong… an I went through some damn painful tests….

Anyhow… we are hot… wind is blowing, warm air on the breeze and the house closed, AC on and reasonably quiet inside…. we turn the news on an some Republican starts lying their ass off an we change the channel… I want lies, I’ll go sit in a church…

Have a good one… gonna shut Bertha down, since it’s so hot and close off the rooms we aren’t in…

Toodles….

Adorable Spite… looking for a forever home and still bored, even sore.. I’m bored… to hot…
