Sept. 8 Could Always Be Worse

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Well let me tell you this has been some month..my grandson had his thumb operated on and it has stayed infected since then so now he has to have it redone tomorrow.. He's a senior this year..
His father had a four wheeler come over on him and he broke his pelvic bone in 4 places. this was 2 weeks ago and he is just now able to stand up by himself. He will be off work until at least Oct. 11.. He is in a super amount of pain.
This Armidex that they have me on is doing a number on me but still I guess it could be worse..Most of the time I am so grumpy, grouching and cranky that I can't even stand to be around me..don't know how anyone else puts up with me..the dr. said oh this will get better after your body gets use to this med..sometimes I wonder if the cure isn't worse than the disease, but then there are other times that are pretty good.. emoticon
Last night we had a terrible storm come through here. A hugh tree came across our drive way so that none of us could get out today.. another one came down across my drive that just blocked me and a third one came out roots and all right next to my daughters house and went from there to the barn.. we were blessed in that no houses, barns, cars or people were hurt in any way.. just sore and stiff from trying to get everything cut up and moved so that we can get in and out once more.. needless to say daughter and her hubby could not go to work.
Tonight I was able to go to church and the kids were really wound up.. not a good night but again all in all I have been blessed..
Started the endless or so it seems round of dr. appointments again all for check ups..they just want to tell me that everything is going good and it will get better, which is always good to hear. My 5 pounds keeps coming off but I keep finding it again but hopefully that too will pass..
We did have a wonderful holiday weekend.. went and seen Toy Story 3 in 3D with the kids, out to Cici Pizza to eat, and dairy queen for dessert..think that may have been where I found my 5 pounds.. LOL We had the recognition service for the kids and now have started the new year.. that's always good.. They did a great job and I was really proud of them..
Oh almost forgot to mention that our electricity was out from 8:30 pm until 5:30 am last night. Of course I was using my portable until it ran out and I had to refill it and then it froze up so was without for about an hour..I didn't feel like exercising at 4 in the morning so I managed.. emoticon
Hope everyone else has had a great month.. We are looking for an even better one this month.. emoticon emoticon

    Sorry I haven't communicated in a while but I've been thinking about you the past few months and hoping the best. I'm glad to hear that you are able to be out and about and spending time with your family.
    Love,

    Oh, wish we lived closer, I would have sent Paul my landscaper over to help get the darn trees out of the way. I'm really enjoying having him and his mowing the lawn every week or two and not having to think about it (thought I still have some problem with weeds in the rocks on the hill but that's good exercise, I go work on them a bit every now and then).

    I'm sorry your med is being obnoxious, I hope it's true that you'll "get use to" it and/or that you don't have to take it much longer?

    Wow !! I was wondering how you were doing. I sure hope things go up from here and that every one is recuperating. I have had to stay away from Dairy Queen. I could swear that they have a sign up by the Blizzard that says "5 lbs. free with any order"
    lol. That must have been a bit scary losing electricity and then your unit freezing up. You take care.After this past month things should start looking up.
    All is quiet here, just wood wood and more wood!!! Bob
