For this week to be done and gone. I wish this were already the 23rd and my surgery were tomorrow. Of course, I also wish Hubs were already home, my teen would suddenly turn human, his chihuahua would suddenly stop pooing my floors, and I w... Read more

After a fitful night of much prayer for the people in CT, and a lot of stress over the rather frantic call from my Dr's office about my labwork (I have a high white cell count and extremely low potassium?! WTH?) Things are settling down. I went ... Read more

I was so excited today. So up, so positive. I went to my water exercise class (in spite of my teen hiding my keys again-grr!) And then to the clinic for my appointments for my pre-surgery appointments. I was drinking my water and all happy and e... Read more

And most of it? Just ain't gonna get done. Period. End of story. Why? Because it just isn't all that important. It isn't anything that the world is going to end over. It won't cause anyone harm if I leave the bed unmade until tomorrow. I D... Read more

I managed my whole day out with 1 crutch. Down the steps using the new leg for the weight bearing-since I'm getting the second one in 12 days, I have to step it up! Did my water class, did NOT stay in the pool and rest. Another first! Went and p... Read more

So-I went to my orthopedic surgeon today, fully expecting (and deserving) to get royally chewed out for doing too much with the new knee-AGAIN. He didn't chew me out! He asked when I was getting rid of the crutches, I said I only use them coming... Read more

I went out and got everything to bake and decorate cookies. I have no intention of eating them, but I wanted to decorate them. I seriously underestimated the impact of making cookies with my dad being gone. Really missing him stealing cookie dou... Read more

Mom is settled (more or less) at the residential center. For as long as it takes. She's still not thrilled, but the drama has significantly lessened. Thank God. I made sure to apologize (profusely) to everyone (especially sister and her hus... Read more

Mom is settled at the rehab center. In the same wing where my dad passed, so she is not a happy camper. My sister met her there, and got her settled and gave her cigarettes and a lighter, so mom is being a little less crabby to people. Sister le... Read more

For crying out loud, my mom called a while ago. Now they are keeping her in the hospital for more tests!? And she had been panicking thinking that her health insurance had lapsed because she hadn't paid it and hadn't wanted to worry me asking fo... Read more

And going to rehab center. And she is NOT happy. And I could not care less. I know that sounds terrible, but she refuses to acknowledge that she pretty much has done this to herself. And her cutesy act when they question her to check her mental ... Read more
