Good Friends Abound

Hey, Y'all,
As I sit here in my computer chair, I am feeling a little shaky still, and a lot sore. My sleeping at night is still kind of discombobulated (good word?). I wake up sometimes in pain, and have to move my sleeping area. Last evening, I decided I would go to sleep in my bed. So I slept pretty well until sometime in the wee morning hours when I awakened hurting, so after a trip to the bathroom, I went into the living room and lay down on the couch, where I slept peacefully until 8 a.m.

I arose at 8 a.m. and took one of my morning meds, wrote some checks for bills due, and took them down to the mailbox. I came back and decided to make some breakfast, which consisted of a scrambled egg and two pieces of raisin bread toast, plus a cup of hot tea. I could only eat the egg and one piece of the bread, plus about half the cup of tea.

Yesterday, I had visits from my neighbors, Laurie and Olivia, Mark and Allie and their granddaughter, Kyah, and Gene and Judy. It was lovely to see them all. Laurie and Olivia came and helped me with the laundry, and put it away for me.

I must get busy today and at least put away some things that are still in my living room, that I brought home from Teresa's. I am still quite shaky on my pins, but am hoping to begin to feel stronger soon. My appetite is still on the wane, and I am having to force myself to eat. I need to see my family doctor about something that would help that. If I can get up the energy to go, that is. ha.

I continue to talk to Gramps each evening and I know he looks forward to our chats as much as I do. He is a dear and the people up there really like him. To know him is to love him.

Well,not much shaking here right now. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. More later. Love to each of you. Bye for now.

Hey Ruby,
Glad to see you getting rest and eating a little. Just a suggestion, you may want to ask the Dr if one of those protein drinks for seniors will help. They are in aa can like the slimfast cans, or just an instant breakfast that you can have during the day if you aren't really hungry but need the nurishment of a meal. Something to check out in your spare time. hahahaha!!!!!
Love you
Darlene and Mark

You are beginning to sound like your "old" self.....not meaning you are old, but you get the point, right? Don't try to do too much. You have had your share of hospitals this more:-)!!!! I'll be checking in on you again soon.
