Poor woman! I hope her discomfort lessens soon.

I don't have yak-tracks, but the Gempler equivalents, and I won't be without them.

This reminds me that I fell sometime last week, on my nose. It was dark and very windy, I was leaving my sisters' house, and pitched forward on my face. Was very grateful for no bloody nose, nor any black eyes, but the bridge of my nose is still tender.

Oh man, sorry to hear that Andy. That sucks big time. I had a similar injury many many years ago playing hockey. If I recall most of the pain was gone in a couple or three weeks. Sending get well vibes out your way.

Now, you be careful, too!

It's usually me tripping over handicapped ramps and landing all 4 paws up.

I used to go for long walks with Beagle in my Yak-Trax (me, not Beagle), but found out they're better for short jaunts. I lost both Trax on a walk without realizing, then after getting home, had to drive around looking for them.

Ouch, that sounds nasty. I hope she heals quickly.

Oh Andy, I am sorry to hear this. Please tell her I am praying for the pain to ease - I know all about it, and vicodin may take the edge off, but has it's own properties like feeling drugged.

Take good care of each other!

We have been deluged with three days of constant snow. It only has amounted to about 7 or 8 inches, but we are in an area where we usually get four inches and it immediately turns to rain and washes away...and that is in November or December!

So, I had my surgeon appointment this afternoon and it is about an hour away. I didn't want to go, but at the same time wanted to see him. TB drives for a living so didn't think anything of it. We made it there and back no problem. The surgeon is very happy with how things are looking. But it was funny when he said "there is no way there would be an abscess in the liver from my surgery, I knew it had to be a blood pocket". He was right, but both TB and I chuckled about it earlier. I have to wear the surgical girdle for two months so the incision doesn't spread and he encouraged me to go to the pool, which I want to get back to as soon as the weather clears!

So, tonight, I am relaxing and hoping to get to sleep soon. Last night was the first night since before the surgery that I have been able to spend the entire night in bed and not rotate from my recliner, the couch and the bed.

Hope you get to stay put another night LP. Nothing like dragging your blanket around like Linus.

I'm about ready to hit the shower, but first I think I'll read up a bit on what is happening with my baseball team. First preseason game is Wednesday and I can't wait! Sure the games won't count until March 31st, but they're all fun to me. Love listening to our radio play-by-play announcer. Tom Hamilton could read my grocery list to me and it would sound exciting!
