Well, hello!  It has been a while since I last wrote!  If you notice a few days passing between entries, it is usually a sign that I am feeling a little down.  When I feel the blues coming on, I am finding that I am better off ignoring the situation for a little while rather than writing all about it in my blog.  Nevertheless, I am back on an upswing so . . . here I am!
Doug is back and the girls and I could not be happier.  What a blessing to have his whistling, happy body back home.

My friend, Marjorie, told me that her mother fell getting out of bed and broke BOTH of her ankles!!!  She now wears the same black boot that I wear on BOTH of her feet!  Poor thing!

Marjorie told me that her Dad refers to the boots as her "Frankenstein" boots.  Well, never having been a fan of Frankenstein, I did a little research to find out what he was talking about.  I have included a picture of Frank's boots and have to agree that they do bear a striking resemblance to my new footwear.  Although I might feel like the a pathetic version of the monster hobbling around with my walker (now fitted with tennis balls--I might add!!!), I much prefer Elise's perception of my appearance.  :)

Matt and Vera, my brother and sister-in-law, just arrived from Chicago to visit us and to attend a wedding.  Just when I was feeling like I was the only one attached to weird contraptions while sleeping at night, Matt pulled out this new thing he has to wear for his sleep apnea.  It is basically a blow up projectile that he straps on to keep him from rolling over onto his back while sleeping.  I just about peed my pants watching him demonstrate this miraculous development in modern medicine. 

I head to wound care to see Dr. Carbonell tomorrow so I will let you know the latest news as soon as I hear it.

Love to you all!
