We may be putting her in a rehab facility for 30 days. Her dementia/alzheimers like symptoms are wearing us out on top of her fear of falling.

Went ahead and mowed the one side of the front yard that was starting to look kind of long compared to the rest since we are expecting some severe thunderstorms today and that side of the yard usually floods and takes a while to dry out. That way I can safely let it dry out without being bothered about the longer grass. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR> 45 minutes calisthenics <BR> 3/4 of a mile walking <B...
