Thoughts for today


            Today is another beautiful day. I was just outside on the porch with my pets having my first cup of coffee. I wish Flordia was like this all the time, no need for a/c and easy on the electric bill.      I don't  MISS  THE HEAT.
         WELL, for all that follow my blog, you know I broke my femur a year ago and still in the w/c. It has not healed and the doc wants to try a bone growth stimulater to see if it would do any good. The darn insurance is fighting it and I don't want them to have to go in and operate again. Im suppose to have it on for a month but it has already been 2 weeks since doc ordered it so I guess I have make a new appointment. Was suppose to go back  on the 19th. But we'll wait and see.
     My turtle was around
today



I am going to work on some snowmen today and other Christmas stuff.My little buddy is always either in front of my computer screen or investigating .whatever I'm working on. That's my thoughts for today now to start working. Have a nice day.

Femur

        Well,
                 Found out last Thursday that my femur bone has not healed together. I was always in pain when I stand or moved it and now i know why....I was beginning to think it was all in my head . In a way I am relieved to know there is still something wrong. I should have been able to get around on my walker or cane instead of the wheel chair.( my kitty will be glad when the w/c is gone, she gets under wheels)
I can do walker, but it is painful. the rod is what holds the bone but the bone has not fused together. Its been over a year. They are going to try a bone growth stimulator for a month to see if it helps if not I have to go through the surgery again. that I hope I can avoid. 
            On a happier note I have been getting items ready to put in a shop on consignment.I can't do shows or flea markets right now so I need to find shops to put stuff in.



 Hair  pins, earrings, key chains, necklaces and soaps and tarts...

Veteran's Day


Thank you to all who have served. We are eternally grateful  unlike some of these overpaid sports stars who ignore the national song.
My Dad's ship.



On a lighter note , my Ryleigh had to take home Roo and take care of him all weekend. I was her turn at school. We took Roo to Dade City, Fl      with us ,walked around the town and had lunch, and then we had ice cream on the way home. He had a great time.

Rainy Day Work

Hi,
Haven't been on since the Hurricane...........I had a few things that needed to be dealt with. trying to make progress but I still need the wheelchair alot, the darn leg just will not get strong enough to just use the walker, still do pool therapy.
 

On a brighter note , I have been working on new soap designs. Also I am trying to cut out material for a poodle skirt for my granddaughter for spirit week and my kitty  is not cooperating. I think he has to go on screen porch and watch the birds.

he spilled them

IRMA

I survived Irma!!!!!!!!!!! 
  It was a bit scary .I was at my daughters on Fri when we lost power around 6 pm .  It was hot and no water because we had a well. At least we were prepared.
   When I went back home Monday, no damage to house but tree branches all over the property...some pretty big . No power till wed night.. but at least God and the power men got it on before the humidity and hot hit.  I lost most stuff in my frig but already went shopping.. Also the frig got a good cleaning, looks like new again. It was needed. 
  Yard is a mess but it will stay that way till my brother gets back. I can't clean it up in my wheel chair.

 Just want to thank God for sparing us.
Hope everyone gets there power soon
