One Done One To Go
Today is Wednesday, April 20, 2011. One day before the big 49th birthday. Not feeling bad about this one, 30 was the tough one for me. The weather has been just gorgeous, warm and lots of sunshine.
One quilt is done and the other one is almost finished. Have one child that he nor his wife seem to have time to sit for 20 minutes with their children and let them color a picture. So I will use some of the extra ones that the other grand kids had done, no big deal, they are not going to stop me from getting this done. Hope to have it finished up tonight.
Need to work on getting the laundry done up and the house cleaned up. Not really much to do, but I will feel better when it is done. I don't mind saying that tomorrow is really bothering me. I just have this horrible feeling that this skin graft is going to be worse than the 12 hour neck surgery. I can deal with hurt, but that damn stinging, that is another story. I would rather you hit me than to scratch me. I just can't imagine what my thigh is going to feel like after them have taken a cheese slicer to the skin, I can feel the sting already. Usually I handle pain pretty good, a very high pain tolerance, but not sure about this. How am I suppose to shower or get a bath with one arm wrapped and a thigh too? That bothers me too, the thought of not being able to get under running water to get clean. I went without a shower or bath for two weeks when I was in ICU, just not a good feeling.
One the way home from work yesterday, George totaled the Jeep. He and his buddy are alright, or at least the hospital didn't keep them overnight. No broken bones, although his buddy needed oral surgery. He hit the window, how I don't know with a seat belt and an air bag. George said the inside of the Jeep just exploded. I haven't seen it, son #4 is going to get the personal things out of it today and get pictures for me. I will share when I get them. George is so upset, that was our most dependable source of transportation. The truck is down while is he rebuilding the carburetor, and the bug the crankshaft. So needless to say this is not the time for it to happen, but we are so blessed that they are alright. A cop seen the whole thing and couldn't believe that the guy turned right in front of George, like he didn't even see him. I really thought that he would be super sore this morning, but not complaints. I keep telling him we are getting to old to break bones, we just don't heal like we use to.
I need to get going if I plan on getting the things I want to get done finished. Just the thought of having me arm out of commission again, well it is just maddening. It has been two months since the second surgery and I feel pretty good, time to get something else done, to make me hurt. LOL
Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
