hoping that EH is okay. the surgery went well enough and he is home, but he is terribly weak and mostly unresponsive, falls asleep all the time and I had to call 911 to help him get in the front door, as his legs and feet decided not to work, and he fell asleep and slumped down on the doorsill and I couldn't get him up.

I'm feeling like there is no fight left in him and he's giving up. I could be wrong, I hope I am.

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers.....they help so very much.

thinking how good it is for Roadieboy to be camping, and knowing he has a home to get back to.

dickc, I feel so bad for the nightmare of pain you are in, and how careful you have to be to avoid more. Praying for you.

Thanking outtacash for her prayers too, we will find out today just when ElHubdud has to go in. He's nervous, and I don't blame him.

camping.

We are camping just outside if the city in, Sherwood Forrest.
My wife was a member of a daycare association when she ran her daycare, and every summer they take the kids camping once or twice.
Although she retired and sold out her daycare she still fundraises and goes camping with her friends. One year she took our grandchildren but this year it is just the two kids with her.
I usually take this time to stay home and relax, but for some reason I came along this time.
I forgot how loud thirty or forty kids can be.
I think I will sneak away tomorrow and just come back for supper.

I slept for a full day after our trip to New York, I didn't want to waste time in the Big Apple by sleeping, although we went to bed early one night because we had walked so much and were beat.

I worked yesterday, just filling in and I was surprised how well I felt. It has been more than a year since I got out of hospital and I finally fell like I have improved to were I was before I got hurt.
Of course some of it is the medication, but I can live with that.

Well good night for now.

Feeling pretty good about myself for having a very productive day, they're few & far between!

Dick, I pray that you find the right PT; you have too many years left to be living with such pain.

CH, do share your feeling more than not :\ Today was an exception. Hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

Pard, will be praying extra for you and hubby on Tuesday. It will be OK :)

Wishing everyone good health & some sort of happiness :)

Pretty darned sore today! All I did was back into a kitchen chair unexpectedly. That caused me to move abruptly, and I felt it right in the back. Hooo boy do I still feel it. Sitting with the heating pad as the warmth feels good. Think I am going to lie down and read for part of the day.

Pard - Will see what the PT's think tomorrow when I see two different ones to decide.

TM - Did get what I wanted to do done yesterday without too much issue. Took it slow and careful. Felt a bit sore after, but it rested out OK. If I can control my movements and move slowly, I seem to be mostly able to function. Its the sudden things. Even bumpy roads hurt in the vehicle.

having a pretty good day.

Been busy knocking the Japanese beetles off my basil and moonflower plants. (and into a jar of soapy water)! Went to Taco Bell today and found a tomato hornworm moth resting on the side of the building. Asked for an empty cup to catch him in, and he's home with me now. They are so pretty, in an understated sort of way. Only wish their caterpillars weren't so destructive!

bored with not being able to o much. Have to go out and find a suitable PT place Monday. Am going to go to two of them and see what each would do for my back issue. Seems I have a mess from the L2 vertebra down. All disks are bulging and I have stenosis which is leaving less room for the bulging disks. Am not sure what PT can do, but will try. Sigh.

Hoping every one else is doing OK!

happy it is raining here. First real rain in a few weeks. Half inch so far, but should rain for a few more hours.

MRI done yesterday and I see the doctor tomorrow. Hoping for a clear answer and a fixable solution.

Pard, I'm so happy to hear that you & hubby are getting out tomorrow!! Hope you both have a wonderful day :) Ooooh, your strawberry & blueberry jam sound delish..yummmmmMMMM!

Dick, that's a Classic LOL. As long as you don't burn the candles at both ends, no need to call the Fire Dept.!

Roadieboy, so much to see in NYC - glad you're enjoying some of it. Hope you get a chance to visit the 911 Memorial... let us never forget.

Thinking and praying for you all, goodnight.

Sorry I missed your birthday Dickc, hope it was great.

Went to a show on Broadway tonight, 'Once' it won the Tony this year as best musical.
Set in modern day Dublin.
Loved every minute of it.

Hope everyone is well or on the mend.

Three more nights to go!

laughing at the cow video, too!!!

Been a busy week, but aren't they all. Had bought some apricots and blueberries, so I made a batch of apricot jam, and a batch of blueberry jam with shredded lime peel in it. I also like to put orange peel in my strawberry jam when I make that, the peels add such a wonderful sparkle of flavor!

Looking forward to taking El Hubdud out tomorrow, mostly I have been running errands and he's been staying home, so he's terribly housebound and needs a change of scene. Well, we will be going to Culver's for butterburgers tomorrow, so that's a good change of scene for me, too!

Precocious grandchild alert: When my 3-year old granddaughter saw that news story about the people that pushed the train car off a man who had gotten stuck underneath, she observed, "how is that even possible?"

Saying welcome to treasurehuntxxx!

Dickc, hope you get past all these medical issues and pain, you are FAR too young for all that.

Outtacash, thank you for your prayers, they really do help. You are a sweetie!

And so are you, Targetsmom, will be praying for Sandra and you. Thank you for you nice WB note!

panj, whatever you were anticipating, hope it turned out well.

CelticHeart, I know you are happy to be closer to home! I love August for camping. Say Hi to Smokey Bear for me for his birthday tomorrow, OK??

And Roadieboy, enjoy your time off. If anyone deserves it, you do.

Love and prayers to all.

still laughing at this: Cows + Remote control toy truck = Fun!

Had a small recall done on my new truck today. Found there is another one that I just did not have time for today. Fortunately its not a drivability issue like the one today was. Will get it done in about two weeks when they and I have the time.

Thanks for the Birthday wishes. Next year we will need the fire department to put out the cake.........

scheduled for an MRI next Tuesday. I have much more neuropathy on my feet than I realized. I also have some growing weakness in the calf of the right leg that I also did not know i had. Does not sound good Will see what the MRI shows when I get back to the neurologist's.

Oh boy a surgical date! That means the infection cannot be seen! Good news. Hope all goes well next Monday!

headed to teh neurologist office today for a check up for my migraines. They have been better lately, but my back is giving me problems. That will be the main topic for the visit. Need to find out what I should do. Will find out the proper course of action.

Glad Roadieboy is safely in the Big Apple! Hope you are having fun buddy!

Hoping Pard and Celtic_Heart are doing better.

Hope that Outtacash and TargetMom are closer to being free of their health care duties.
