I hope you had a nice weekend.
I’m feeling pretty good about life even though my family has faced some serious (unbloggable) challenges over the last seven months.
Last Friday, I got my stitches (and surgical staples – ouch!) out.
My doctor is very happy with my arm in its current state.
And, I’m SO happy with how great my arm is doing so far.
I might not be as happy once I begin physical therapy this week?
I imagine PT will hurt.
Thank goodness Paul Newman will be helping me …
We’ve got a great bond and a strong level of trust.
After all I’ve been through, that’s very (!!!) important to me.
My arm is still immobilized in a sling which leaves me very dependent on others for help.
I think I’ll be in the sling for around six weeks total?
I’m not very good at accepting help.
I’ve got a strong, stubborn, independent streak.
But, I find I have to accept help right now.
I CAN’T TIE MY OWN SHOES!!
My youngest son came home from Texas (college) last Thursday and stayed through Sunday.
My daughter, and her boyfriend, drove down from L.A. for the weekend.
My oldest son (North Carolina … soon to be working on his MBA) is here for a week.
I was happy to have all three of my kids home at the same time.
Fred was in heaven with so many people to love.

I’m still very limited in what I can do.
I’m taking daily walks.
I’m trying to get out of the house as much as I can … with friends/family.
My arm lets me know quite clearly when I’ve done too much.
The hardest thing is having patience.
I want to do so many things, but I have to take life very slow right now.
