With Eric in the gym. Stretching, bands, deadlifts, pull downs, push-ups, back extensions, squats.
Got a corticosteroid injection in my R trochanteric bursa. That was what the doc came up with after reviewing my MRI. She said it might take a month to really be effective. Meanwhile, it is a bit sore today.
The other thing that came up is that my BP has been elevated of late, after a fairly lengthy prior period of being relatively low, so starting on some meds for that, the lowest dose. Rhonda checks hers fairly often, so I checked mine a few weeks back and it was high, then kept a record checking it every day for two weeks.

Finally home after a long day accompanying Rhonda to a follow up medical appointment in NYC. Traffic not so bad, but waiting 3 hours to be seen was pretty tough. This was easier to deal with (like a lot of things) in pre-COVID days when a person could take the train, and when a person could also go spend the night with Jess and family.
We decided not to go see them, because Cooper's school got closed down for a few days because someone had tested positive, and while he was negative, Jess wasn't comfortable about her aged parents showing up right now. So maybe next month, when R needs to go back to see a different doc.

With Rhonda at the lake. Perhaps a bit subdued, but really just doing fine. I'm under general orders not to do anything strenuous for a week, and that seems fine to me right now. I have to irrigate my nose a few times a day, which is not onerous, and no real discomfort.
