A Long Time Away.

Where Have I been?  I have moved from one son’s house to another.  I am now in Westland with Les and Anne.  I tripped, fell off the back deck and broke my right hip.   I spent some time in the hospital, more time in rehab and I’m still walking with a walker.  It a bitch getting old.  You can’t do anything without straining, pulling a muscle, stumbling or running out of energy.  I have mastered standing at the kitchen sink and doing the dishes, feeding Spirit, making my room neater but I seem to run out of energy quickly.  (I’m going to have to work on tt.)

Les and Anne took me out to eat.  (It was the first time I had been away from the house since I fell.(except for being check out by the doctor.) I’m really upset with being hampered and a problem for those around me.

I  know I’ll get better –but when.

    missed & loved!

  3. 85 years and 2 days old. Wow I’m in pretty good shape despite all ef the things I have been through. I still use the walker when there no arm or cart to hold on to. My sense of balance is weak but at least I can still get around, I walk the store to try to try to improve
    my stamina. I will tell you by the time I get home I’m ready for a good sit down, But hey how many my age can do this,

    As to pets my Spirit (my bird) and Honey (my dog) have both checked out healthy.
    Well it is almost 9 pm and Cindy, my daughter will be by tomorrow to visit so good night.
