TREADMILL: FIRST TIME EVER, LAST TIME EVER (LIKE A SHIP DECK)


I grew up West Yarmouth, Cape Cod, MA, USA, surrounded on three sides by ocean

You would think as beach and ocean oriented as I have been, I would glide along the ocean itself with ease

Wrong! Motion Sickness gets me every time

Fractured Right Knee Cap Physical Therapy

Far enough along now to get on a treadmill (30 December 2017 physical therapy session)

First time ever on a treadmill

Instant Motion Sickness - walking like I was on a ship deck on the ocean!

I lasted about 3 minutes - a bit of a queasy stomach, a bit dizzy in the head

First time ever on a treadmill

Last time ever on a treadmill

FRACTURED RIGHT KNEE CAP PHYSICAL THERAPY, PHYSICAL THERAPY, PHYSICAL THERAPY REVERIE

13 December 2017 Wednesday

Bright gold

Crisp white

Cold morning sunrise

Snow patchy dull ground

Chimney smoke blows sideways

Wind chill factor in effect

FRACTURED RIGHT KNEE CAP HEALING RESTING REVERIES

29 October 2017 Sunday 1 PM-ish
Open windows
Light rain steady straight down
In between occasional swishing traffic
Blue Jays dissonant
Rain birds twittering
Caution
Do they know a storm is coming tonight?
Autumn tropical rain nor'easter blows in all night

30 October 2017 Monday
Sturdy walls and roof thwart pattering rain tossed by gusty winds seeking unwanted entry into the house.

9 November 2017 Thursday 7:20 AM
Looking outside from inside top living space floor
Chill November morning - not yet freezing
Roof top frost melting drip sliding to ground, vanishing
Bright crisp sunrise vanquished
Indoor radiators briefly whisper
Full throated steam heat still a bit ahead
Dust motes swirl shine inside 

AND THEN CAME 06 SEPTEMBER 2017: RIGHT KNEE CAP FRACTURE

Fractured Right Knee Cap Healing

22 October 2017 Sunday
40th Wedding Anniversary, Daughter's Baptism 28 Years Ago, Mom-In-Law's Birthday

1:30 AM
Fractured right knee cap healing
Light supper last night NOT hungry
Early, early, early morning hunger pangs
14 steps downstairs to kitchen still an issue
Snacks by my bedside - plain donut
Decadent

Cape Cod Potato Chips, individual packs
Expiration date 16 December 2017
