My Best Friend died today!

Saturday, September 24, 2011      39 comments

Our sweet little dog Cookie was put down today due to an autoimmune disease causing her platelet level to drop to a life threatening level. She had been bleeding from the mouth for many days. She was so sick this morning and could barely stan... Read more

1st orthopedic appt. today after surgery

Tuesday, August 16, 2011      7 comments

Saw the surgeon today, and I walked into his office without my cane. I understand that I have a titanium prosthesis which is not cemented in. That is why I could weight bear completely right after surgery. I'm doing well, and can do just abo... Read more

Irritating son-in-law

Thursday, August 04, 2011      5 comments

We had a wonderful time at my daughter and son-in-laws for my granddaughter's 12th birthday party yesterday. I was a bit worried about my hip, but everything went well, and we were the last to leave. It was so nice getting out. My daughter a... Read more

Tuesday, August 02, 2011      4 comments

We are headed out to the cottage for the first time since my surgery. I'm a little apprehensive about it! There is so much to bring along. I have become a "special needs" person. lol... Read more

Blew it yesterday!

Monday, August 01, 2011      7 comments

I sure pigged out yesterday. Haven't done that since way before I had my surgery. I ate practically everything in sight, and as a result have felt sick all day today. I have really tried to eat healthy today. Feel better about that. It'... Read more

Vast wealth of knowledge

Sunday, July 31, 2011      2 comments

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my Spark friends for responding to my last blog regarding "to use or not use my cane". I have decided to use it whenever possible because of all of your responses. What other site cou... Read more

Walking without cane!

Saturday, July 30, 2011      6 comments

Spoke with a retired nurse today who cautioned me not to walk without any aid. I never seem to remember where I put the cane down so ultimately wind up walking without it. I have no idea now what I should be doing and it's still over 2 weeks... Read more

Old camper

Friday, July 29, 2011      2 comments

We have a very old camper sitting on our property that is filled with a ton of stuff including my mom's walker, a fishing net and other things which are quite important. My husband lost the key about a year ago, and refused to break the lock... Read more

Weinie roast!

Thursday, July 28, 2011      3 comments

My granddaughter came over today, and we had a weiner roast for lunch. I've been craving one of these hotdogs for ages. It was a turkey dog, but that probably isn't healthy either. Hey, who cares because it sure tasted good lol!!!... Read more

Class coming over for a workout!

Wednesday, July 27, 2011      6 comments

It'll be kind of a neat day, because some of the people in one of my exercise classes are coming over today for a workout. These are some of the people who have been with me for many years, and I've gotten extremely close to. I'm really look... Read more

Enjoying housework??? What's with that!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011      1 comments

Funny how when you can't do something for awhile, it feels so good to get back to things again like housework. It's never been one of my favourite things to do. It reminded me of how many times that I've procrastinated doing things around ... Read more

Still tired!

Monday, July 25, 2011      4 comments

Walked for about 10 minutes today. Got quite tired as it is very hot, and my body still is tired after walking too much the other day. I so look forward to a future time when I can take an hour walk with the dog.... Read more

Beautiful Day!

Sunday, July 24, 2011      3 comments

It is lovely outside today. I'm going to try to walk again down the driveway, but do less than yesterday because I'm feeling a bit fatigued. Like I tell my classes; you've got to listen to your body, so I'd better practice what I preach.... Read more

Update: Sat. July 23rd (l month today since hip replacement)

Saturday, July 23, 2011      5 comments

I just love walking. I was able to take two straight 10 minute walks already today, and plan to take 1 more if I'm feeling up to it. Was even able to walk around without any aid this morning without any pain. That was great! Was able to go... Read more
