Home, Both of Us !!!!!!!


Yesterday was my last day of therapy and busy one at that.  Much of it was in the afternoon.  As it was in the beginning, more observations and now tests on what I can do and how much I have accomplished. 

Early Friday morning I woke up with both hands itching, with no idea why.  I have been trying to stop with no luck.  After trying creams, lotions, heat, ice, I’m taking Benadryl. 


I began this early Saturday,   but     Life happens!!!!!!!

Since then, I/We have been very busy.  I was discharged in the morning,

                      This is what you get when you get when discharged.

made a stop Costco and headed home.   Sandi got me all situated and helped put the groceries away.  She headed home to get things done before she had to meet friends that evening.  On the way, she brought Angel home. 


                                       You all know how happy she was. 

Sunday, I got a call from Sandi letting me know that Apollo with Health South would be over to register me for home healthcare.  That took about an hour, just in time to get to church.  We visited Past was or Shane’s church.  He is the one that Sandi brought to visit me after my surgery.

Faith Pointe Church of Christ was celebrating their 2nd year Anniversary and Pastor.  Shane invited us to share in the luncheon they were having.  It was wonderful to be blessed with great food and conversation. 

From there we went to Home Depot to get some wood to put under the MH jacks,  Maybe now I can get “My Spot II” leveled properly.  Then we went to pick up Charlie from his dad’s, dropped off my prescriptions at Walgreens, went to On the Border to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, returned to Walgreens to pick up the scripts, went to Walmart to finish shopping and then home.  I got help putting everything away said goodbye.  The rest of the evening I watched one of the two channels that I get and was in bed by 9:00 pm.  I figured out how to put on a Lidocaine Patch (for pain) on my left arm by myself and went to bed.

Today, I had another home healthcare visitor, this time it was for evaluation.  I did a little bit of straightening up  and put away the laundry that Sandi did for me.  Thank you Sandi!  I did my exercises and will do them again before bed.

Tomorrow morning I have my post-op appointment with Dr. Milne.  He will probably take out the staples then.  My 1st actual home healthcare therapy visit will be tomorrow too. 

Ii is hard to believe that it has taken me all day to finish this post.  It will be nice to use both hands when this is all over and done.

I hope you all have a great week.

Thanks for visiting

Susan and Angel


  1. So glad that things are going so well. Keep up with those exercises!

  2. Mom... I'm glad I can be there to help you through this process. I know it's hard and I know I'm a hardass but it's for your own good to get you back going so you can do what you enjoy doing... being ON THE ROAD! Tomorrow we have Ocupational Therapy coming out and then you are all set up!
    Lunch on Sunday... a BLESSING in itself... WOW... now you see why I love Shane and his church just like a FAMILY... a true blessing!

  3. Glad to hear that you and Angel are home and back together. She will be ready for lots of hugs. I thought you were near Ft Worth; hard to believe only two channels will come in. Did you reprogram the TV for the new location and turn the antenna on? I think you will be watching some of those many movies again. Take care.

    1. I think that it has something to do with the old TVs that came with the MH. They are analog. I haven't switched or put in my new flat screen TVs or DVD players. All I have is a small portable DVD player.

  4. Sure hope you're feeling better. Enjoy your posts, but don't comment much. I'm just a dreamer about RVing...sigh! Love little Angel...she's just too cute.

    1. Keep dreaming. It took me 12years to achieve my dream.

  5. Isn't it great to be in your new home? Good job on doing your exercises.

    Sandi is such a sweetheart to help you out.

    Take care!

    1. HAHAHA Susan.... don't let me helping mom shine my halo... I worked HARD to get it as tarnished as it is! :P

  6. I'm glad you're home, and Angel, too, and the surgery is behind you. Now just rest - and exercise and do the PT - and before you know it, you'll be as good as new.
