Visiting the vet

Julio went for his annual wellness visit today. He's at 65.5 pounds, which the vet thinks is perfect. His health is perfect as well! I didn't think anything was wrong, but it's good to be able to tell the Guide Dog school that!

I've been extremely exhausted all day. I haven't slept well all week. If this continues, I'll have no choice and I'll need the Ambien. I hope I can sleep, but the pain levels are high today, likely because of the walking and starting therapy. But, as my mobility instructor said today, this doesn't have to mean failure of the surgery, "starting therapy yesterday is a pretty good clue that this is still new." I'm also hoping that the added movement will increase the sleep-ability.

Speaking of therapy, I did the exercises today, and everything worked out well. The towel one is hard, and I don't have much control of my left foot yet. This will come with time, I think. It's probably too early to see any real changes.
In other exciting news, I've figured out the method I need to use to tag my posts when posting by email with the BrailleNote. This is a positive step in the right direction! (Pun not intended).

I had some thoughts I wanted to write about, but I think they'll have to wait until I'm more rested. I'm in pain, exhausted, and have just a bit of nausea from being in pain and exhausted. I think that's a sign that I need to rest and get some more spoons (if you don't know what I'm talking about, see my sidebar.)
