Hello - It's Been Awhile!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I cannot believe that I have not blogged since the beginning of March. Wow, time flies when you are having fun!

Life has been very hectic since I came home. Dewey my cat who had part of his tail amputated continues to improve even though he is still not used to the idea of having a short tail! His wound is healed enough that he is now collar free.

Abby also continues to improve from her scoliosis surgery. She has finally gotten a tutor from school after being out of school for four weeks. Hopefully, she will catch up quickly. She is biting at the bit to go back to school but she really cannot sit in an uncomfortable chair for long periods of time yet.

My knee that I had operated on in December has been acting up since my trip to Cleveland. I think I over did the walking at the airports. I am still exercising but I have backed down on the amount of weight I am lifting with it. I need to ice it more but time seems to get away from me. It seems to be swollen a lot.

Work is also crazy and ridiculous but I am still trying to maintain my exercise schedule. It is the eating and soda that has gotten out of hand. I have been consuming more caffeine to try to stay awake through this LMS training at work. I cannot stand sitting in a computer lab for 8 hours a day listening to someone talk! Pretty funny since I set up classes like this for a living!

Here are some pictures I took while in Cleveland visiting my niece!

This is my arrival and Abby being totally blown away! I surprised her by a visit after she got out of the hospital!

Abby and I

My crazy nephew!

Abby's medications

Abby and her Mom!

It snowed the entire time I was visiting! Brrrrr

Abby has been spoiled a lot! Too many gifts! All I bought her was a Kindle Fire!

    You are such a caring and supportive Aunt Betsy for Abby. She must of felt great that you came to see her when she was not feeling all that great. From the pictures she looks very happy ~ and that is because of you visiting her!

    No, you definitely did nothing to spoil your niece emoticon Travelling there and taking on this extra portion of snow is nothing really. The Kindle... remind me why are you not MY aunt. I could use one emoticon

    I'm glad Dewey is doing better. I'm sorry about your knee. Sounds like you are doing the right thing for it.

    Glad that Abby is doing well. She's not spoiled by you, huh? "All" you gave her was a Kindle Fire. I'm glad you showed some restraint! LOL!

    Oh, I bet she didn't like that Kindle at all. Surely it will not add to her spoiling. emoticon Praying over your knee. If it keeps it up much longer, I would advise letting the doctor check it out and make sure you are not building fluid in there. Hugs to you.
