Sometimes PT doesn't always work. It didn't with my DH, but it doesn't mean it won't work for your DH. I hope it does work, so he doesn't have to do surgery. Be happy you don't have a surgeon who likes to jump at the chance to surgery on someone. There was a time some would do unnecessary surgeries.

Here is Reynold's site where the before picture is and then we will post the after picture. You can also see a picture of precious Sicily on his site.

It has rained/snowed off and on the last couple days, but no snow on the ground. I don't doubt that we probably have at least one more big storm coming. It's not May yet.

My blood sugars are dropping. Not as fast as I'd like, but I do have to eat. I also lost about 3 lbs. and am exercising more. I'm real tired of poking myself twice a day, but a lot better than being on insulin. My fatty tissue mole that was removed is not cancerous. Thank God for that. I really wasn't worried about it, but it's always nice to hear good news. I have a mammogram tomorrow. Not looking forward to that.

Debbie- happy that your blood sugar levels and weight are going down! Congrats! Thanks for the advice. DH has been doing his PT exercises. There has been a slight gain in mobility.

It snowed overnight again. This is one of the lasted days I remember snow on the ground! I know that I am tired of shoveling.

On Monday and Tuesday we had a snow storm that dumped 6 inches of snow. Well, the snow is finally gone! WAHOO! It was 71 degrees the past few days. Today may hit 80. That is MN for you.

Hugs across the miles. I miss hearing from all of you!

I hope your snow (and mine)is long gone for the year!!! Doesn't Mother Nature know it is spring, and we want SUNSHINE and temperatures in the 70's??!!

Joan and Linda - I really hope you get some sun and warm temps. Today it is raining and is supposed to all day. Only in the 50s, but it is still better than cold. The last three days of beautiful sunshine has definitely lifted my spirits.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Hello friends, will be having my first interview with the Childlife Specialist tomorrow to hopefully be accepted as a volunteer on the pediatric floor. Will also have an interview with the volunteer office and have background checks, etc. This is something I truly want to try and sure hope I can be helpful to the kids and their families.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day to all!

Magnet

A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the
magnet and what it does.

The next day in a written test, she included this question:
"My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am
strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I?"

When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was
astonished to find that almost 50 percent of the students
answered the question with the word "Mother."

I've been bad about checking in here. I'm in NY because me dad was in the hospital. He has a painful back problem and then a problem with a very high Coumadin level. he 's home. I've been here almost a week. hope to get back to my own home/family tomorrow. we'll come back up with the girls later this month

Dh's surgery is over. The shoulder was in much worse condition than thought. The tear was severe and there was a bone spur. He is in the hospital at least for over night. He is a diabetic. He looked pretty good. Surgeon told us he will be in pain so he needs to take meds. He will be out of work for at least 6 more weeks.

Hi, everyone. I'm back from NE. Those 2 weeks sure flew by way too fast. However, it is good to be back in my own home; but I do miss the maid service. We had a wonderful visit with the girls. Bailey and Lyra are growing up so fast. I can't believe Lyra will be 4 on Wednesday. It's going to take days to go through the pictures.

Thanks. I can't believe little Lyra is 4 as of yesterday. I've been looking at some of the pictures and I want to cry; I miss them so much.

When I got back to work I found out one of the girls quit after 22 years. That means, if the board approves it (I'm sure they will), I'll be moving to 40 hours a week (possibly salaried) and will be Circulation Manager (I think that's the title). It doesn't start until June 24. I'm going to miss my free mornings, but I'm really going to like the little extra money.

I went with Dh to the surgeon today. Oldest Ds took the day off from work to take us. Another 5 weeks at home. he starts therapy on June 25th. He can't drive at least until July 11th. he is bumming out. As I don't drive we will be back on the bus.

I'm slowly adjusting to my new work schedule. Of course, I have no time to help Vince with the 4th of July stuff. He is so tired. He wrote a letter of resignation to the paper. He is finally publicly admitting his that it is too much for him. We'll still have the music, but unless someone steps up and offers to help with all the donations and getting the food lined up, there will be no more free bbq. People will just have to bring their own food in the future. I would hate to disappoint 1500 people, but Vince's health has to come first. I spend a good part of the day worrying about him and it looks likes it's going to be a scorcher on the 4th.

Joan, how's your DH doing with his recovery? Hope he's in a lot less pain. I really need to get some sleep.

It is so hard to get people to help sometimes. Perhaps now that Vince has resigned, it will wake others up. I agree his health must be the priority.

I completely agree with Caterina, Debbie. I need to get volunteers each month to help with Sunday School. I've needed less and less as our numbers have dropped, but I STILL can't get people to volunteer. So frustrating.

However, you are so right - Vince's health comes first. You have to do what is best for you two at some point. Hugs.

I had the greatest day yesterday! My oldest sister and I spent the day together. we went to see my 102 yr old aunt. The nursing home once again broke her hearing device. My sister paid $700 for it and lost her walk behind walker. We happened to run into the Director of Nursing. we spoke and she is looking into both things for us. Next off ot see my youngest DS. we drove thru a little town and ate at Kings Bar. it has been featured on the Food Network. The menu has 3 pages of unique hamburgers. I had "The Catcher". A 1/4 lb burger with corn beef, sauer kraut, grilled onions and thousand island dressing. WOW! My sister had the knight. A burger with bacon, grilled onion, peppers and Swiss cheese. We shared. Then, continued to my son's. we visited the Marine Art Museum. I love this place. I love the masters... Renoir, Monet, Manet, Picasso, Rembrandt, Reynolds, Homer, etc. All in one space in a town of 20,000 people. He took us to a park along the Mississippi River where there are over 30 floating houses. I have never seen anything like this. My sister said it was similar to the Orient. DS went to practice before the municipal concert. This is the first time they see the music. I took my sister to the town look out. the view is spectacular. The Concert of all American composer was awesome. Ds has been in this city band for 5 summers. I left home at 9:Am and arrived home at 11:57PM. A long day but very wonderful!

This is way too funny.... love this lady and enjoy her comedy so much. Funny as she refers to her husband, 'left brain' because I say the same thing to my yawag husband.

Watch Christian comedian Jeanne Robertson give her HILARIOUS account of her husband "Left Brain" vs. a nighttime intruder. You will be in stitches!

Happy Sunday Ladies, boy it's been a long time since I have posted. Been a long year, seeing some progress just lots of ups and downs. DD is now driving and let her drive from home to my mom's in such a PA. It's hard getting used to that and also having her work is an odd feeling too. Lifeguard at Mountain Creek I think the being busy is good for her we still have some issues but had some really good days. XDAH is just a jerk and always have to remind myself to just ignore his mean words.....

Hope everyone has a super blessed day.... Love you ladies!!!!

Michele, having been a single mom, can understand. Just know that no matter what, you are doing your best and God will carry you through. Sending much love and hugs.

I appreciate you all ladies!! Had a good day with DD and my nephew. My nephew in the navy is now engaged, so thankful I got to meet his fiancť when she was up here last week with him on leave and when I got the call I knew she was the one and knew he had asked without really knowing. He was that kind of happy with her, love is beautiful.... And my nephew brought up X he had a few questions and she was so sweet to me and supportive so funny she was like what an as* made me laugh... So I can laugh at some of it well most of it now... I need to catch up on posts but will pray for all this evening.... HUGS
