    Sorry you had to cut your vacation short.
    I'm in Port Orange, FL (Volusia County). Just south & inland from Daytona Beach. Not in the evacuation zone. I'm on a hospital grid for power.
    I'm in FL since 1970. I know how to stay safe & ride it out.

    My knee is the worst pain but there is no Arthritis and my knee looks good but I have torn my meniscus so it has to be repaired with a scope. It has to be general anesthetic and there will be three small incisions. I think he does robotics. He has done one shoulder a long time ago the Rotator cuff. I need another one I can handle that.
    That takes time but I have to have a trapezoid-ectomy and that is the longest. The bone above my thumb has to be removed and a piece of my tendon is packed in. It is six weeks minimum and I have to have my bound to my body.
    There must be more too it but the knee is the day after my Birthday. My pre-op is on my birthday. I hope to eat out with my walking buddies. I choose the restaurant and they pay my bill. COOL. We all do it that way, Pat in Maine.((((HUGS))))

    I hope the weather co-operates for the wedding.
    Nice to take family with you along to have them close by.
    Our son watched me straighten the rocks from the higher wall so I placed them while our son was taking ti GD to bowling. She rarely gets out so now she is home school and she is in her room almost all day. Now she is back to have a little social time.

    He said he would help me to rebuild it. When his car left the driveway. I pulled all the rocks down and stacked them. That has been my ST for weeks and mostly alone. I do not mind I love it. I just wish it was too heavy but I am like my mother strong as an Ox.

    I decided we should spend some money. The pool is great I want to buy a step for next year. HUGS Pat in Maine. ENJOY emoticon emoticon

    I was doing the rock wall and fell backwards down the banking. I fell in a Hosta plant and it cushioned my fall to my head but I fell on my shoulder on a very hard area of clay.
    My feet were high and so I could not get up by then Fred and Peter were able to turn me around so my legs were dangling over the wall. It was easier to get to the driveway.
    It was swelling on my back. Fred had an appointment with our PC I asked if I should go to ER but he said go to Urgent care to get Xrays. There was nothing broken but this shoulder has a rotator cuff and I just finished PT about 2-3 weeks.
    My Orthopedic shoulder man will get the X-rays tomorrow and I might have to go to see him.

    Now I have surrounded the bay window area and there are steps that have moved over the years. The friend was a landscaper. We hired him to do the job and make concrete steps.
    He was not well. His men did the work and I was waiting to ask his manager questions. It was a big project and one day I asked him why he did a cut in the driveway. He cut off the side of the driveway 3 feet at the front he said you have back drive way . His boss had not told him he had halved the driveway just about just one car. It barely is wide but it works.
    T;hat day the laborer told me his boss is dying and he was 47 years old and that Saturday we had read an article about colon cancer and it was a full page. My landscaper died that day. His article was telling his own story and people read about it and many acted on it.
    People have colonoscopies now.
    We remembered our friend. DH and the landscapers brother were good friends and in to model railroad. Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon
