LIfe In Alabama These Days

Hey, Y'all,
LIfe goes kind of slowly here as I continue to recover. My day begins at 6 a.m. with arising and heading for a shower. My first day here, Teresa assisted me with a shower, but I discovered I could pretty well do it alone, so I do.

Breakfast is usually around 7 or so, after a walk around the perimeter of the yard, and then after breakfast, I go out onto the patio and read awhile. This morning, I took about a 30 minute rest in bed about 10 a.m. That is one nice thing about being here, if I get tired, I can just take a rest in bed.

I had a little snack around 11 a.m. and will probably have some left over chicken wings parmesan around 1.p.m. Teresa makes killer parmesan chicken wings. Yum. We had them for supper a couple of nights ago.

Tomorrow, we will be leaving here around 9 a.m. or maybe a little earlier to go to the surgeon who did hte last surgery at Vanderbilt and he hepeully will remove the last drainage tube and the staples that are presently decorating my belly. Thank God!
I don't yet have my full energy back and don't know how long that will take, but I am slowly getting there, I believe. I feel like my get up and go has got up and gone. Ha.

I just thank God (and Teresa's care. plus prayers of good people) for my continuing recovery.

I talk to Gramps each evening around 8 pm. his time, and kind of get a feel for how his day went. I thank his nieces and Mark and Allie for all they have done to help him settle in at the Assisted Living Facility, and also the staff that work there.

Well, this is Blabbin' Grammy sigting off for today. Not much else to blab about today. Hope you all have a great day and restful night. Much love to all of you. Bye for now.

Glad to hear you are getting the rest you need to recuperate. Theresas place looks real peaceful and a place to relax in the back yard. Will try to call you this weekend. Love you and keep resting.
Darlene and Mark

I am glad you can rest whenever you need to. That means a lot. Just hang in there and you will be all better soon and back home. I know you and Gramps miss each other a lot. Take care of yourself, get your rest, and continue to recuperate each day.
Hugs, Judy

Hey Ruby,
Glad you liked my blog entry. And good to see you are doing better. If you hold down the control(Ctrl)key and tap the +key on your keyboard, it will zoom into any page you want to see larger on the web. Holding the ctrl key and tapping the -minus key will zoom out. I know...I can't always read small print either, but I don't want to take up too much room. Thanks for reading. Hope you're home soon. Best Wishes, Sandi
