Rough Day
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      16 comments

It was a 'if something can go wrong, it will day'. It is rare to have so many things in one day. Rather than rehashing it, I'd rather say that I'm glad to be safely home.... Read more
Bundled Up

I bundled up as I headed out to see patients in the sub-zero temps. My landlady commented that she had never seen me in long sleeves in the 5 years that she had known me. I replied it was the first time I was seeing patients who lived on the Lak... Read more
Cancellations

My Physical Therapist nearly cancelled today's session as her infant son was ill and I didn't want her to take him out in the weather. I suggested that I come to her instead of her coming to me and that worked out well. Her little one slept thro... Read more
Stuck in Snow

After Church, where I did one of the readings, we had coffee and doughnuts. During this time, the snow came down. One of the Church members walked me to my car as I am still using a cane. He and another member cleared the snow off my car. It ... Read more

Hump Day

It's mid-week and life is good. I'm getting stronger. I've advanced to being able to carry my computer as I go on visits instead of taking notes on paper and entering them when I get home.... Read more

I saw 3 patients today. The first has severe Alzheimer's. She remembered me and asked where I had been. She didn't remember I told her about my knee surgery. The second had a stroke and was not able to talk when I first started seeing him. ... Read more

Church
Sunday, January 19, 2014      10 comments

I am recouped enough that I was able to be a Eucharistic Minister (helper with Communion distribution) at Church today. It feels my soul with joy when I can serve. Otherwise, it is a quiet day - my physical therapy exercises, some phone calls... Read more

New TV

My TV was bumped into and crashed to the floor. The replacement one came today. If I get a keyboard, I understand I can get the internet on it. I have to figure out how to get the picture to cover the complete screen. It is about 80% now... Read more
