I am thankful all the staples are out of my leg with little pain! Also blessed to have a daughter who drove me there and home with a stop for a sandwich on the way home. Our granddaughter is spending the night here-not so much because she real... Read more

I'm blessed to have a husband who was willing to take my shopping list to the grocery store and pick up a few things. The first store only had 2 of the things on sale so he left them and went to a different location and got everything on the li... Read more

I am very thankful today that getting out of bed this morning felt pretty normal. No struggle with dragging the left leg along-just swung them right out together. My therapist also said I'm doing well enough to use the cane inside the house tho... Read more

I am blessed to have two grandchildren nearby who are willing to help me when I need them (well, usually). They used to be here a lot more often but with growing up and school life changes. Right now we only keep our granddaughter 1 night a we... Read more

I am thankful that my brother's mission team made it back from Guatemala today. They had to run from immigration to their gate but got there before they finished boarding. They had a successful mission trip building two concrete houses-one a 3 ... Read more

I am home today-it's always tiring getting home from the hospital after a surgery. I have to say my care there was very good-great nurses, aides and techs 24/7 along with a good therapy department. Now I'll be getting home health care for sever... Read more

Guess I will be in the hospital until Friday. That's the plan for now. I'm not in a lot of pain but I don't care what they do to hospital beds they aren't all that comfortable though that may be partly because I can't move my legs into a differe... Read more

and sleeping in my own bed I managed to actually sleep 8 hours! I don't remember the last time I was able to sleep that long. The laundry is done, the dishwasher loaded so now I need to pay the bills and vacuum. That will be followed by a qui... Read more

Our 3 1/2 hour flight from Denver to Jacksonville ended in Orlando or as the pilot said "not your destination" due to a bomb threat at the Jacksonville airport. That means we are staying at the Hyatt at the airport making this an expensive end ... Read more

We are spending two days with Larry's brother and his wife. I enjoy spending some time with them but their only entertainment is eating and talking. Okay, I enjoy both of those but I really don't need to go through her foods so she can be sure ... Read more

I thought I was seeing a hip specialist today but they just put me with the first Dr with an opening I guess. He was very nice and apparently specializes in knees because he asked about my two artificial knees and informed me that I should be ha... Read more

I started the day with about 45 min of chair and balance exercise with my friend at church. We didn't do the walking video as her foot doctor told her not to walk on her sore foot. I then headed to the doctor who seemed really surprised that I ... Read more
