Summer

It's been hot as hell this summer and I think my brain is rotting inside my head!! LOL

Hello everyone . . .how are things in your parts?

This summer is seemingly flying by. Since my surgery . . .which went well, though it was was a lot more painful than I could have imagined, I have been busy. PT three times a week, getting around via various people picking me up and taking me places, and just overall general fatigue that comes with all your body parts not working quite right.

I am getting better, and stronger, but it's taking a lot of work and my PT benefits are running short. I am only halfway finished with recovery and I only have ten more visits left!! Guess who needs to be doing more on her own . . .?

I have been quite lax in the food and exercise areas-though I recognize there isn't much TO do in the exercise area, but still. I have gained about 10 lbs back since the surgery and I don't feel too hot in the body image area . . .but alas I am moving along. I go back to therapy tomorrow after a three week break due to our schedules not matching up . . .I will be grateful to get back to it.

Otherwise I have been busily working away as the new director of children's admission's and family services. it has been great, and for the first time ever they have a waiting list! what a great position to be in! I mean, not great for families who are looking to get in, but nice that we have beds filled and that we can now be a bit more selective about who we take. I was also voted employee of the month this month as well! Whoo hoo.

I am realize that for those of you that follow me on facebook, a lot of this is old news . . .and I think all of my readership knows me on facebook except for KJ maybe . . .

What else--my brother is coming in tomorrow with little tyke, who just finished kindergarten!! Can you even believe it? They will be here for a few days, and the rentals are also coming in. DP and I are taking parents to see Celtic Women on Saturday. I am very excited about that, and hope that we all survive the weekend! Monday DP and I are calling out sick and going tubing with brother and little tyke . . .who from here on out shall be referred to as Little Man!

Some pictures from our trip to Michigan . . .Riley with how new water toy. He loved diving onto the water and fetching! Addie loved her stick and by the end of the week that thing was eaten down to nothing!!

I almost fainted when I saw a post from you! LOL! It is seriously good to see/hear from you!

I'm glad the PT is helping. A word of encouragement .... my mom broke her leg, no, she shattered it, and was told she would not walk without assistance and a bad limp, if at all. She was determined to not let it happen, so she did her PT as long as it was paid and then continued on her own like a little trooper. She walked again, without assistance, and the only time you could tell was when she was very tired and if you really looked. So DO IT!!! It will be worth it in the long run. :)

Congratulations on being worker of the month. That has to make you feel really good. I'm glad things are going so well at work. Busy,but a good busy.

I know what you mean about doing those PT exercises at home. My PT said that was half of PT, but it is so hard to get motivated. However, you know you have to do it for your own good. It is a pain and I hated doing them.

Enjoy your weekend.

soooo, feeling odd ? sensing anything ?
I'm just wondering if the donor ligament from the dead guy is giving off any ghosts from Christmas past. Urges ? Mood swings ? craving anything that you normally don't eat ? hmm. :)

Sorry the surgery has been so painful. I hope that you are able to find a medicated daze to live in until it heals.

Congratulations on employee of the month. I hope they took your picture. and I hope you at least get a front row parking spot...for a month or so after PT runs out. Hey...at least you won't have to walk as far.
