A great way to spend the winter months.
A month has passed in what seems like a day. My wife's new hip replacement is improving daily and she is now walking with the use of a cane. She will be driving this coming week and will be picking up many more of her chores and daily activities as time wears on. The recovery hard part is over. Continued physical therapy and common sense will rule the next two months. She gets an "atta girl" daily from me.
Being the spouse that has picked up most all of the daily responsibilities was somewhat hampered when I threw my lower back out moving her wheel chair out of the car. Just pissed me off. A simple twist and strain and I was rendered AFU.
This damn aging thing. Nothing drives my wife and me crazier than NOT being independent.
But otc pain relievers and heating pads have improved my back (has happened before) and her improved mobility has lessened some of my responsibilities.
If you are younger reading this, please take an old man's advice. While your mind and body are still working and up to speed, keep doing, going, trying, moving, and using every inch of your body, every day, every night, every moment. Under no circumstances think that it lasts forever. It does not. Build a million more memories.
You can start resting more when you get old!!
THE OHIO VALLEY
The world continues to evolve. The truth is lost in a grinder. But the folks living in the fertile Ohio Valley know. The new world has come to their front doors, their lands, gardens, work place, church, main streets and water supplies. How many families and individuals have had to evacuate just to survive?
How many elephants will the room hold before the foundation crumbles?
Behind on posting. Life happens.
Appreciate your visit. God bless
