Aren't days so much better when you wake up knowing you made good choices yesterday and you slept well. I find it such a blessing and it makes me want to do it all over again today. I am looking forward to eating right and getting my walk in with the dogs. The sun is shining and it's warm so that is motivating as well.
I know some you are in a deep freeze. Sorry about that....sending you some of my Mexican sunshine.
Update report on FIL. DH and nurse took him to the doctor on friday for a follow up and he had another xray. The doctor told him that there appears to be a very small fracture but that he should be trying to walk more and exercise. The fracture will mend itself. As I mentioned, I hadn't gone to the appointment with him as I was trying to stay away from germs at a medical facility. I went out the following day by myself (DH was into a project). FIL was lying down in bed. The first thing he said to me was that the x ray showed a fracture and he said "I knew something was wrong and it wasn't just muscles". He said that he doesn't feel exercise would help the fracture heal and so he isn't going to do much. I told my DH what he said and he said."he isn't going to improve if he doesn't help himself"...so we are thinking he is giving up and will be in a wheelchair forever. Sad that he isn't more motivated to walk and build up strength. But my DH and I know that we can't change him and as long as he is well cared for we are fine with it. There is nothing more we can do. We will be selling the house that we had bought for him to live in as there is no reason to have it and pay for maid, gardener, and condo fees. We would be happier knowing that FIL is where he is and well cared for. We haven't told him this is what we are thinking of doing...not sure when we will have that conversation.
Hope you all are keeping warm and will have a terrific day.
