    Hello June

    Time is flying by!  Summer will officially be here in no time.  Our weather here has been crazy, as it has been in other parts of the country.  One day it’s in the 60’s, the next the 80’s.  My doctor gave me a higher dose of one of my medications, changed it to extended release and after a week in a half, I feel it’s too much.  I’ve put a request in to lower the amount but haven’t heard back from him yet.  Hopefully, lowering it back down will help.  I’ve been very blah with no motivation to do anything.  I swear, it’s always something. LeRoy is the Garden Center Manager at his Fred Meyer store.  He loves it.  He loves doing up his yard in the many flowers he sells.  The kids love helping him as you can see in the collage.  Did I ever tell you how much I love these kids? Speaking of the grandkids, Al and I will be seeing them today.  It’s been about a week.  We got Emily a little Frozen suitcase with wheels and a handle, for when she spends the night.  This will let Emily be able to bring some of her…

    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.…

    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.
