The recovery seemed to go as expected until June of this year, when it appeared a problem might require correction. That was later confirmed in early December. Not wishing to spend another Christmas recovering, we decided to postpone the necessary surgery until January. Well, here it is already January and this is the week for the surgery.
Therefore, I will not be posting for about six weeks or so as I play the role of "Nancy Nurse" and assist in the recovery. Thank goodness for my previous homecare experience! So many things are more positive and easier this time around. We have been able to make plans since we were not caught unawares. We are eager to get this behind us and resume our active lives.
I will try to keep up with your blogs as time and Internet access allow. And we do ask once again that you petition the deity of your choice for rapid healing and a good outcome.
This photograph of Lucy checking out the sled was taken the day before the injury. Little did we know what was in store for us.
When the injured player returned home from the hospital, the dogs were so happy to be near him. We placed a stool to keep them from coming too close.
Lucy thought the quilt under the footrest of the recliner made a perfect tent.
She spent a lot of time there while Ellie took her spot on the other side of the chair.
On a different note: Many counties in North and South Carolina have school in session on this Martin Luther King Day. The national "news" is presenting this as an indifference to the importance of this day. In truth, this is not the only holiday that will see children in school. Because of the unexpected number of snow days so far in this school year, the schools will be in session on President's Day and possibly Memorial Day and days have been tacked onto the end of the year. The "Easter" break will be shortened and there will be school on several Saturdays.
So please, disregard what the media are insinuating. This holiday is not being singled out but is one among many that will see students attending school.
