Things are healing, never as fast as you want but when you abuse your body the way I did I suppose it may take awhile!  The “Shrek” colored shoulder with streaks of purple and yellow has finally peaked and I can see some of the swelling is going down.  The rib hurts when I breathe, but that won’t stop me!  The pain medication definitely helps but it has it’s side affects so I am trying to skip it!  One day I felt so stoned I could not even function.  When I was 25 that would have been fun, not at 53!  I can finally get out of bed alone and almost dress myself so Paul will be returning to his duties of sleeping in his fathers home keeping an eye on him and giving his brother and sister a short break.

The weather here has been beautiful and I spend a lot of time sitting on the porch watching a mother bird bring food to her babies in the birdhouse on the porch – very cool.

    Oh Denise…. I feel for you. Just rest and take it as easy as you can.

    Keep checking out the birdies… and no RV washing for you.

    I had a milestone last Thursday. I actually was able to bend my right knee enough to get stockings on again… yea! it felt very good to do that small task.

    Hey Denise… it was good timing to be at Paul’s Dad’s place for your rest and taking it easy part of the trip.
