Ray is on the mend and I miss him so!

Friday, February 20, 2009

It looks like Ray will be another week at the hospital. It's difficult to explain but here they have the hospital and a therapy unit attached. So Ray was 3 days in hospital after his surgery and then went to the therapy unit.

I miss him being here by my side but he is doing very well with his physical therapy and the knee is not causing him undue pain.

Dad now has almost 2 weeks of Dialysis under his belt and he noticed yesterday that he is feeling stronger! He had decided the treatments are well worth his time and effort. He even feels like baking again! Cheesecake is his specialty.

I decided that it is time for a cellphone so I am in the process of picking out a phone and a plan. The flat tire on Sunday pushed me over the edge and I now realize that I can really get stuck out on the road and with 2 seniors dependent on me it just isn't fair to worry them so.

So far I am staying on track with my program and even lost a little this week! I broke 135 and today was 134.2! Yahoo!!

    emoticon on the weight loss! You are doing great!

Sorry Ray is still gone but he's healing so that's good!

I just got a cell phone a couple yrs ago. I got a Nokia & buy minutes card. I get a $50.00 Card with 400 minutes. It lasts me about 5 months, usually longer. I just didn't need one more bill each month to pay. I carry it with me but rarely use it. I'm not the 'gotta have my phone' kind of person. But they are handy to have just in case.

And emoticon on being team leader for the new Class Team! Wishing you the best of luck!

    WTG on the weight loss. I agree you do need a cell phone for when out and about. You never know when you'll need help. I don't have one and really should get one myself.

    You're just now getting a cell phone???? Good grief, woman. Welcome to the 21st century. Seriously, I didn't want one either so my husband gifted me one on Mother's Day a few years ago. I was NOT happy with the gift, but now I'm totally dependent on it. I removed the house phone line a last year.

I'm delighted to hear that Ray continues to mend and I fully understand how strange it is to have our mate in the hospital while we're at home, alone. It just doesn't hit how much they are truly our "other half" until something like this happens. I hope Ray is able to come home soon. And kudos to your dad for taking up his baking again. Dialysis isn't fun, but it sounds like he's benefiting from the treatments.

Keep us all posted and give Ray and your dad my best.

    emoticon Linda. I can't wait until Sunday to see how close I am to you. LOL
I'm sorry Ray has to stay in the hospital but it is probably best for him. He will home soon enough.
I have verizon with my daughter and I have no complaints. But the carrier was her idea. I'm just along for the ride because she demanded I carry one. LOL

Hugs,
Marty
