We had cold cereal for breakfast and continued the unpacking process. There is hardly any cabinet space in the kitchen. We found a set of metal shelves in the basement. After we cleaned them up, they made a nice place for storage in the laundry room. We have definitely decided that we need to downsize and get rid of things, especially clothes. We have one closet that is probably only five feet wide. We also do not have a dresser, only a shelf unit with eight bins for clothing storage.
Sister Fanning made an appointment with Dr. Bailey for her virus flare. She also made an appointment with Dr. Finn for a chiropractic adjustment. Until the appointments this afternoon, we worked some more on unpacking. We have not yet got any of the rooms done, but most of them are more livable.
Sister Fanning saw Dr. Bailey’s nurse practitioner. She gave her a mega dose of antiviral to try to knock the virus down. She took 2 grams of antiviral twice, 12 hours apart. Her mouth was better the next day.
Her appointment with Dr. Finn did not go as well. He was not able to move her neck. So he used a new technique to move the spinal facets one at a time. When he tried to move her back, all he did was get her into position and the spine moved on its own, but it was so painful that she cried. When he tried to adjust more, her body guarded and he stopped. She was in a lot of pain when she got home later that night from the muscles not being used to the spine being in place. She is concerned that she is using pain meds during the daytime. But she can’t get by without them.
She picked up dinner from Panda Express on the way home. We did some more unpacking, and went to bed early again.
