They missed me

                                                      and i missed them
                                       thank you ladies from my BSF group.
                        Next week i should be driving myself.   
Today, Friday, is my first day to face K & K without "the pill". 
 But it means i can drive myself and maybe, say, go out to lunch, or at least for  a frosty  !

moonlight in the morning


                                          and maybe a final therapy chapter.
                             final day in jammies  ( ok sweats )
                             tomorrow could be my final visit 
                                        to my cute doctor
                                    final week without driving 

                                first week back in BSF  circle 

Goal: totally off meds by Sunday
  Not to be taken lightly.  So far I have needed anti nausea meds before therapy.
                                   Therapists  can be so ...
     anyway, next week, will be the first time ( since the first visit )  without  "fortification"

                                                          I can do it
remember Phillipans 4:13  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

New International Version (NIV)
Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

And that is the truth

Watch out K and K

    because I am getting stronger
                                               but  how much longer before
                                        I can hold a big cup of coffee ?

Therapy for all

   The longer i wear this little purple brace, the more i hear about others who have been through therapy AND  the value of following through at home.
  But on my first visit, i knew nothing about the  "details"

 The friendly smile in front is Kristin.  She is an expert in  hand therapy.  She explained very carefully what was going to happen,  how I would participate, and other information that i cannot remember. But Karrie, also with a friendly smile, bobbed her head in agreement with all of the above.  She has been a patient here before.  This time, her injury was job related.   She helps people in the theatre world to get in and out of their costumes.   Somehow, her hand got under a large shoe while trying to help get her client in or out of trousers.  

Me?  Well I was not smiling so much.  It had been a big day with the PA sawing off my polysomethingorother splint.   This put me in a prone position and popping an anti nausea pill. 

That prepared the way for a somewhat pleasant encounter with Kristin. ( as noted above ). This was Monday.   On Friday I returned to meet Kathy  ( sorry no photo ) the other very best hand therapist in in the state of Washington...probably in the whole USA.
The appointment did not go well.  I don't want to talk about it.  Kathy said my face was about the color of my hand, so she let me go home. 

So we go home and I call Kelly, to make an appointment for the following week.  
And now you know what took place in those first two weeks after surgery.

You can see the 7 little screws  in the "right" place in my "left" wrist.

that is enough information for one post !  

p.s. if  you notice some similiarities, it means you actually read my story, it all the similarities are true.  

I live an exciting life.

Sunday Summary

Stopping at Darrell's favorite bakery
  (stop by before Wednesday and enjoy a donut or apple fritter with me)

Sunday school message on anger was very good
Daniel Burke should be a teacher
He got participation from the kids and gave something for all of us to remember
Mark 11:15-17

Bountiful buffet lunch
Bible study Col 3 - new life in Christ
II Cor. 10:5 - bring every thought into captivity
Rom 12 - my favorite chapter in the Bible

Maple Valley - home of our favorite Bronco fan - Tiffany
The food:
 five layered dip and chips,
 chili with toppings
 10 pound brownie (this year 11.1 lbs),
 and Bronco napkins

Though the group was small, the noise level got pretty high from about 3:30 to about 7:00
If you live anywhere near Seattle, you know everyone has been “geared up”,      Office buildings, including the Space Needle’  were lit up in blue and green.  It was amazing!

It is impossible not to feel the Seahawks energy all around. Oh, and don’t forget our 12th man!
Most of our family are Hawk fans
Check Anita's FB page (don't bother with Tiffany, not on FB and she is  wearing orange)

And the rest is history!
What a game and some decent ads.
I came home with brownies, meatballs, and $25.00 - hmmmm
