Good day to you….last time I talked to you I was in the car heading for Ohio…..
On January 17, 2016, I arrived at my daughters house in Carlisle, Ohio along with Bradley, a moving van and a trailer. Made the trip on one canister of oxygen…..I was settled in and the boys unloaded the van and trailer. Everything was taken down 7 steps to my Mother in law quarters. I was upstairs in my bedroom for the next 6 months or so..when I was able to help, we set up my home…..I have my own privacy, bathroom, bedroom with a walk in closet and a wall of book shelves, livingroom with fireplace, kitchen area and another area I use as dining room, craft area and where I work my puzzles……Love my area, just wish I didn’t have to be here…
I had a visit with my new doctor a few days after we got here….She arranged for me to continue my physical therapy at home. Physical therapy twice a week, occupational therapy twice a week and nurse twice a week. They kept me very busy but I looked forward to their company….a reason to get up, dress and make myself presentable (as best as I could ) My walking was getting better and I could get out of my chair easier. All the things we take for granted each day.
On my first trip out, Sandy took me to Walmart (BIG MISTAKE) I did ok in a wheelchair. .Enjoyed the trip very much..but..a few days later I was in the hospital with pneumonia AND the flu…….So much for being out in public..
I see my lung doctor every 6 months for CT SCAN and breathing tests. So far I am holding my own. I see him again May 19th. I don’t feel good about this appointment.
I believe I have brought you pretty much up to date….I will post again later in the week. Remember the main reason for this post….A simple warning to wear a mask when working with this burlap could have saved my life…and I could go back to before, happy in my little old house, walking Bradley and making my wreaths….Thank you for reading..Blessings to all. .
