Beautiful Day

May 27, 2008

It sure has been pretty here lately. I love spring. I have been able to sew some. Not in upholstery just small quilting stuff. I almost have a lap size top done. I will post a pic when it’s done.

I had to go to the doctor today. One of my small incisions got infected. I was put on antibiotics Friday and he wanted to see me today. It looks good now. The antibiotics are working. I go to therapy for 2 more months and also no working for 2 more months. Hope our money holds out.

Recovery from shoulder surgery is a very slow process. I didn’t realize it would take so long. I thought in a week or so I would be right back to doing everything I always had and that is not the case but I’m making good progress, just seems so slow.

I can’t use my quilting machine yet, dress myself or sleep in my bed. It’s a good thing we have a comfortable recliner and couch as Lynn sleeps on it so I won’t be by myself. Jazzy loves it cause she gets to sleep with Lynn. Today is Lynn’s birthday. He is 58 now. He says that is old but I don’t think so since I am 56!

Well, I have to go for now. Sorry it has been so long since I posted. I will try my best to do better. Have a great week everyone.


Spring Time In Arkansas

I took a walk down my front walk way this morning and thought I would share some spring blooms with you.

Some Bearded Irises

More Bearded Irises

A Tea Rose that needs some TLC.

A close up of bearded iris. Aren’t they pretty?

A pink double azalea.

A purple Clematis.

Hope you enjoyed the walk.

Surgical Incision

May 6, 2008

I don’t want to gross anyone out, just share what happened. You know I got ran over by my truck. I had a traumatic rotator cuff tear of the suprastinatus tendon. I had surgery on April 30 to repair the tendon. I am also going to physical therapy 3 times a week for at least 6 weeks. The therapist says I am doing real good. I believe him even though it feels like torture to me. The attached photo shows my lovely incision.

Beautiful Sunday

May 4, 2008

The sun is shining so pretty today. It’s a little cool but very nice anyway. Nothing much is going on here. My arm hurts too much to go visiting so home it is. That’s all right with me as I love being home. Lynn is taking good care of me. I do feel guilty as I can’t do anything but PT yet and I have always worked. Maybe soon I can.

On the quilting front, I didn’t get my Elenore Burns quilt done before surgery so it is still not finished. Maybe I can get back to it soon. I have all these new quilts running through my head so I guess that is quilting, huh? My story and I’m sticking to it.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I love all of you who visit me.
