Rejoice with me!

Back from my mile walk around the neighborhood.

Rejoice with me. I just did twenty-four hours between 5mg oxycodone doses. That is the lowest level of meds I have been on in a year and a half. My body is not happy with me, but it did it. The back and foot are doing well; at this point it’s the oxycodone that’s keeping me on oxycodone. But we’re beating it.

I’m going to let my body adjust to the new level for a bit before I make the final push.

One positive thing with all the closures is that I have fewer things requiring me to get out and be functional. That makes stretching the meds a little less challenging.

I am a photographer, walker, and sometime paddler, a theologically-educated geek living in Rochester, NY. Once upon a time I was an Army helicopter jockey in Alaska.

I started with film, switched to digital, then went back to classic film cameras.

With major back surgery in August 2019 and bunion repair in January 2020 now behind me, I am gearing up to start Appalachian Trail NOBO in June, 2021 to celebrate my seventy-first birthday. Blogging for The Trek.
