TravelingChris Posted June 29, 2012 Share Posted June 29, 2012 SO tonight and tomorrow, I will be staying alone here with my pets because dh and both dds will be going on a fun trip I can't go on. They will be going rafting tomorrow with a group from our church. Even if my arthritis didn;t prevent it, and I am not sure how my rheumatologist would feel about going on a multi-hour rapids trip with 75% of both of my knee cartilages gone, my thrombophlebitis and coumadin therapy precludes me doing more dangerous activities like this. There are so many things I used to like I can't do anymore- tennis, horseback riding, skiing are the three I can think of that I enjoyed doing and now can't do because of either the arthritis or the coumadin and blood clots. Since I have been living with the arthritis for over 20 years and now the blood clots and coumadin for two years, most of the time I am just grateful that I am still alive, still walking, still able to do a lot of things I enjoy like reading, gardening, coming her to this forum, etc. I am also grateful that I have the health to homeschool. BUt today, not only is it too hot to garden, there is an air quality alert again for people who are sensitive and that is me. So I am not supposed to even go outside since I have asthma that gets triggered by air pollution. So my family will be eating a nice steak dinner, then rafting tomorrow and I will be doing things like laundry, organizing, and ??? I can't even go get my dinner for tonight until evening because of the heat and the pollution problem. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
