Started physical therapy about five weeks ago. It’s going really well. My doctor says he’s proud of how much progress I’ve made in the last few months. My therapist thinks it’s a matter of “when” rather than “if” when I get to go out on my own. Once the pain in my knees cleared up, everything changed. My strength is starting to come back. I’m still losing weight. I’m down 55 pounds in the last 5 months and over 130 pounds since the pandemic began. I’m currently at the lightest I’ve been since 2016.

My blood pressure was creeping back up. So the doctor put me back on some pills to pull the water off. He’s convinced all my knee pain was fluid retention. Seems like he was right.

My roommate has to have a heart cath tomorrow. He hasn’t been doing well for the last several weeks. Hope they find out exactly what is wrong. He sleeps a lot on has a hard time standing up. He’s completely wheelchair bound right now.

Found out an old friend of mine is buying some country property in West Virginia. She always loved the mountains and forests. Says she going to raise some bee hives and make some money off the timber rights. She has wanted to get out of the big city for the last few years. Her neighborhood has gotten real bad.

I don’t have any plans for Halloween. Not sure what my place is doing for that. We had pumpkin painting about a couple weeks ago. And the fall leaves are beautiful this year. Been really dry too. The corn harvest is almost done. My parents are probably coming up for Thanksgiving. This fall has gone fast.
