Harriet1                       WELCOME!

To bring you all up to date, I’ve spent the past week first in the hospital, and then in a Skilled Nursing facility, where I am right now.

Last Friday, on my way to a cardiology appointment, I fell when my legs collapsed. In the hospital they treated me for excess potassium that apparently led to a little damage of the kidney function which made me weak.

So I spent until Tuesday afternoon in the hospital, and then they moved me to a rehab facility to increase my strength, and that’s where I am now.

I never realized before how challenging just standing up can be. Physical therapy is working on strengthening my legs, and thus my back, and there’s also Occupational Therapy where they seem to want to make my arms and shoulders stronger.

But being in a rehab situation is very boring, I have to say. There are activities scheduled, but so far all I’ve seen is people watching TV (The Price is Right) and others playing dominoes.

Well, I’ll try and update you, if you’re interested, as time goes on. I don’t expect to stay here for long, though.
