Heading Into Warmer Weather

Heading Into Warmer Weather

Good evening everyone!  I’m up way too late but wanted to stop in and visit with you a bit.  First, I’d like to share some photos of my grandkids.  They sure have put a lot of smiles on our faces.  Emily says the funniest things.  Jake is about a year and a half so isn’t saying much yet but it won’t be long.

Al and I are going to be watching them for a 2-4 hours, 3-4 times a week.  There is some overlap when Rachel goes to work and LeRoy gets home so she’ll drop them off and LeRoy will pick them up.  We are looking forward to having the time with them.  It will be nice to see them on a more regular basis, making memories.

Tomorrow LeRoy, Rachel, Jake and I are going to the Home and Garden Show at the Convention Center.  Emily is going to have an Emily and Grandpa day.  They are really looking forward to that.  She is very close to Grandpa.  LeRoy is the Garden Center manager at Fred Meyers so he is really interested in the show.  I love these kinds of things and the exercise will be good for me.

Concerning the Message Board, I have just purchased an update to vBulletin 5 Connect (we are using v4) which says it includes chat so hopefully we will be able to bring that back soon. I”m hoping this will also fix a lot of bugs on the Message Board we acquired with the migration to the new server.

I’m really trying to hard to focus on more protein and less carbs (under 200/day).  I’m still not doing great on drinking my water, especially when there is Diet Dr. Pepper is available.  The scale has been moving in the right direction, which is a good thing.

The forecast for the next 7 days is showing us in the low 50’s during the day and above freezing at night.  Hopefully the snow will finally go away until next winter.

Time for bed. 

Until next time…

Walking Again ~ I Want It Now

Walking Again ~ I Want It Now

Good evening my friends.

My surgery on February 10th to get my screws removed from my ankle went well.  I was told I could walk with my walker and in my boot.  When I first tried to step down on the foot I was surprised it hurt so very much and that I couldn’t even come close to stepping completely on the foot.  Discouragement set in.  Now, almost 2 weeks later, I have seen a lot of progress.  I’m walking faster with my walker but still not stepping completely down on my foot.  I tried to take a step with my cane and it was a no-go for now.  🙁  I have an appointment on February 23rd to get my stitches out.  I will then get a referral for PT.  Hopefully Workman’s Comp will give me enough sessions to start walking on my own again.

Heading Into the Home Stretch

Heading Into the Home Stretch

The day is almost here when I get my screws out of my ankle and get out of the wheelchair.  It’s been a long 3 months not stepping on my right foot.  I still have PT ahead of me but at least I’ll finally be able to step on my right foot again.  Workman’s Comp finally said okay to start light duty after I get my screws removed on February 10th.  I’ve been fighting with them for the last month.  Giving up the fight was not an option.  It will probably be another week after I start stepping on my right foot again since the calf muscle has a lot of atrophy.  PT is just around the corner.  I cannot wait to become mobile again.
