Scoot Takes Me Places !

Scoot is what I affectionately call my little scooter, which is a Shoprider Echo 3 Model # SL73. I will be driving Scoot to the Doc’s in about an hour, and ten will come right back home.

I feel so great at the moment, because the injection is all wore off, lol. Sounds weird, but it lasts in my body usually for a week past the time I get injected again, every Wednesday.

An update on my walking: I’m not able to walk for blocks at a time, however, I am able to walk around in my apartment and also outside  and also I’m able to catch a bus  and go to the store without Scoot if the store is close to the bus stop.

Yay for determination and small accomplishments. One. Day. At. A. Time. 🙂

I hope to visit some blogs today when I get home, if the injection does’nt zap me first !

That’s all for now. 🙂

This is the next custom art I will order for my bedroom.

What Really Happened Wednesday May 11th 2011

Yesterday began with the usual…getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom , for which I am very thankful to be walking around my apartment  once again. I showered and got ready to start my day.

Scoot was still charging , so I did’nt unplug him until it was time to leave  for my appointment. Around 8:45 a.m. Scoot and I left for the doctor’s building in back of  Bayfront hospital.

 My R.A. doctor’s nurse, Ginny, is kind enough to give me my injection every Wednesday until my other doctor gets back from his volunteer duties over in Africa , which will be  June 20th.

It did’nt take us long to drive over there, but had to be very alert and wary of dumb speeding drivers hurrying on their way to work. If  some of them keep on driving like they do, one of these days, they will end up in ER or worse.

I only had to wait for ten minutes and my name was called. Before five minutes were up, Scoot and I were on our way out of there. Super ! 🙂

I spent some time with my friend Bob after getting home, as he needed to have company. He’s used to working part-time, but is still on doctor’s orders to remain at home. He is doing well .

Last night I was over in http://www.singsnap.com  and had some fun singing and listening to others.

I took two naps during the day because  methotrexate will make one zap out whether one does not wish to sleep, or not !

Other than this, I just rested and relaxed. I so want to dance ! Those days are over though…because of my knees, and my lung capacity.

I might as well write a bit about today as long as I’m writing.  There’s not much going on, LOL ! 😀 I drove down to the post office and mailed a letter , and then  went over to Publix food market. The ride home was nice  and hot! It’s great to be out in the sunshine ! 😀
