The A&R Journals: Hospital Diary’s #5-6

Day #5

Today I took a shower, went to pt, got pfts done, and painted. I have to take a shower every other day since I have a picc and don’t want to get infections and stuff. I hate showering with a picc though because I have to wrap it up since it can’t get wet. I got pfts at 4 and there down more. Since I have vocal cord disfunction sometimes they aren’t accurate. I started a painting that’s a landscape. I’m trying to take more time on my paintings and not push myself to finish a painting in one day since when I rush it ends up looking not as good as it could be. We also binge watched the office for the whole day and I hung up some drawings and paintings facing the outside of the window in my room so people that walk by can see it. We’re still trying to figure out when I’m going to get a bronchial scope done.

I went to pt at 1:30. It was fun. We used this ball that had different sides and each aide had a exercise on it. So we did that for a bit. Then we got these skateboard things that are a bit bigger and square. We sat on them and went up and down the hallway and then we used a jump rope while one of us sat on it and held the jumprope and the other one pulled the jump rope so we would pull each other up and down the hallway. All I can say is I’m going to be sore tomorrow.

Day #6

(I’m sore)

I started my day by waking up at 8. We set up a schedule where I get off screens at 10 and go to bed at 11 and wake up by 8. I did therapy, got meds, and got ready for the day. Then I ate lunch and got my blood drawn for an antibiotic level to make sure it’s not hurting my body since it can cause kidney and hearing issues. Then I went to pt where we went outside and ran up and down stairs, used a exercise band and did jumping jacks. It was a bit of a walk so we had that too. When I got back I painted for a while and called child life to ask for a paint color I needed and some games. We are watching my big fat American gypsy wedding. All I have to say is what the HECK! It’s weird and stupid and I don’t know why I’m still watching it but I guess entertaining to watch these people’s weird weddings. Right now I’m doing therapy and when I’m done I’m going to continue painting.

That’s all for now, bye.
