Now that I am moving again I've been so busy catching up I haven't found time to post.  I will be going back to work Sept. 2nd so I'm on the go until then.

Ron and I finally got our carport.  It will be great this winter when we don't have to scrape windshields.  I should say it will be great for Ron!

I've been cleaning the house and just so happy that I can!  Every day I am counting my blessings.  Life is good!

Well, a lot going on here.  I'm about to wrap up my outpatient therapy.  I'm walking without a cane (most of the time).  I feel like I'm actually regaining my life.  I've been able to help the girls get their classrooms ready which I haven't been able to do in years.  I actually tied my own shoe the other day.  Haven't done that in 4 years.  (I'm not supposed to even now because of hip precautions but at least I know I can).

We hired a contractor to do up plans for a cottage house for Mike.  I'm also meeting with a financial advisor about other options but we will make a decision about something in the next 6 months.  Mike is very open to all the ideas and we are taking our time to help him adjust to the idea of moving.

I turned 65 last Sunday and got my Medicare card.  I'm officially a geezer!

This is my last month off work and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.  I'm dreading returning to work because the atmosphere at the hospital is very tense.  Or at least it was when I left and the last time I visited.  I plan to make the most of my last year before retirement and just have as much fun as possible.

For some unknown reason we have been priviledged to some unusually cool weather for an Oklahoma summer.  I'm not complaining one bit.  I'm afraid the heat is returning next week but hey it is supposed to be hot in August.

Great day! I went in the pool for the first time in 4 years and did aquatic therapy.  It was just heaven!  Thank you to my daughter for allowing me and the therapist to use her pool. It was so much easier to achieve range of motion in the water. Thank goodness my swim suit still fits.

Your beliefs don't make you a valuable person your behavior does!

I started outpatient therapy yesterday and I couldn't move the rest of the day! I was exhausted. There was a lot of stretching, balance work and scar rubbing. I'm going to
Therapy twice a week for four weeks.

I'm walking without a cane or walker in the house but still using a cane outside. So progress continues!

We had a celebratory dinner last night with my son in law and daughter. We are just so happy with the news we received yesterday.  I'm so excited about the future and that has been hard to come by.  When doctors told me that Ron had maybe 3 years to live I tried to keep myself grounded. I was always trying to be prepared for the worst.  Ron was always optimistic!!  It has been 5 years and 3 surgeries later. We are 1year cancer free. What a miracle!

Hooray, Ron got a great report! The spots are stable and they think they may be cysts. We are good for another 3 months! I'm so grateful!
