I DID IT AGAIN


It is summer time here in the south, things are just getting to darn hot... As you know, I have been dealing with problems all year long, seems like when one thing gets fixed something else breaks down.  Oh and I am referring to ME and my body or My Family.... just one bad thing after another this year.  So as a recap on me, I had a heel spur, opted for surgery, found it to be more scar tissue then heel spur, so it was fixed.. Just got out of the surgical shoe and spent a day with DH and SD and somehow I ended up with a stress fracture, so into a boot cast... I get out of the cast and now take it easy, plan on a garage sale and after a busy day of sales, decide to make me something to eat, while waiting for it to heat up, I decided to wash dishes and you know the rest, 9 stitches.... Well those stitches came out Monday, oh did I mention that I whacked the hand the Friday before the stitches came out, well I did and yes it delayed the stitches coming out by a few days... OK  your now caught up.  So yesterday I decided that with the summer heat, it was now time to wash the back patio, and put up the new portable gazebo, you know the ones that fit into a bag and you just pull the legs outward and it pops up....Well, I tried to get it up by myself and that just didn't work, so I asked DH to help and he came out to lend a hand.. Things were going great, we got the top opened and in place and the only thing left was to bring down the legs... That's when it happened.... YES I did it again, do you know the term sticks out like a sore thumb... Well it is true, if you have a hand, thumb, leg, foot injury, be prepared as it will get in the way every time you try to do something.    Somehow my hand slipped and I hit the side of a planter, it hurt but what was worse was that my nice clean patio was now changing to red... Yes I knocked the hand open... so DH took a look and insisted we make a ER run again..  They couldn't stitch it again, so this time it is butterflied and again, don't get it wet, let the strips fall off and the doctor told me to slow down, she kind of sounds like my husband with that statement.  She then said that if I had to do anything, I was to take and wrap my hand in a ace bandage, again she sounded like my husband... GEE, this is going to be so much fun, trying to do anything with the hand in a bandage that looks as big as a catcher's mitt...

On another note, I received bad news from my son in PA... He had just gotten back from Indy where he and his sister went to find out about my EX and his Cancer.. Seems the only thing that they can do for him now is Chemo..  My son had  also called to let me know that a very dear friend had passed away this week... He was the husband of my best childhood friend and their daughter is like my own. And then today I received a email from a past co-worker asking for prayers for her husband... he is ready to make his journey, he has been ill for over a year and says he wants to go.   I guess the reality of how short life is is now taking a toll on my life.. these people have all touched my life in some way or another.  Just a few years ago I almost lost the love of my life and was so blessed that he made a recovery and is still in my life... Now my friends and family are losing those men who are so important to them... Karen, Don, Kacey and Diane you are in my thoughts and prayers....
