Friday February 17, 2017
Thursday was a wash-out. I have come to the painful realization that my recovery has stalled and needs a jumpstart. I will admit that I am not diligent enough to keep to a regular and specific regimen, trying to rely on my body to tell me when it needs some action. Well, it is telling me in no uncertain terms that it needs a lot more action, and maybe different actions.
So I was “out-of-sorts’ and slept most of the day trying to recharge while battling a runny nose. The Herederos ride got rained out so my only outings were to walk the dogs.
This morning I tried to make an appointment to go directly back to rehab but the made me go see a different doctor in the afternoon. I was at least 20 minutes on the phone getting this arranged and I checked the “saldo” on my cel phone after, and I was definitely charged for the time. Ugh.
The doctor was on time, and gave me the documents I needed to take to the IESS main office a few blocks away. The wait at IESS was almost an hour, putting me in the middle of a rain shower, but I got the approvals to go to a clinic near home.
Since it was raining, and I was riding Buzzer, I had to kill some time so I looked at some cel phones and ended up buying a used Samsung, refurbished, for $80 and $15 for the glass front and metal back protection. They threw in a charger. Then I went over to Claro and asked them to port my number from Movistar, which will take 9 days, and they will deliver my new chip to me in about 4 days. My new $20+ plan will come out of my bank account so I will soon be set up like modern people (like my Herederos group) and be connected with unlimited Whatsapp, and unlimited phone calls within the country…. Movistar doesn’t have a plan that comes anywhere close…
Then I went to the rehab clinic behind Monay mall only to find that I won’t be able to back on physio until March 9th… Ugh. So I went to Monay mall Coral and bought some small weights to help with my rehab at home.
Then, of course, walk the dogs again…
Tonight, hopefully will be a separate Blog.
I hope you enjoy the photos taken with the Lumix. That was the day's excitement. Cheers, Al
