Mother’s Day when your children have fur

P1120728-Edit-sm

I am lucky to blessed to have a mom that always encouraged me in my endeavors – except maybe my early teen years – she probably wanted to send me away for those. Actually both my parents supported me but my dad passed away when I was 32. I loved my mom’s mom too. Grandma was a special lady and I wish I would’ve spent more time asking her about her heritage and past when she was still with us. Continue reading

The shoulder verdict

This is my 2nd post on my shoulder. I had the MRI on Monday and opted for the cheaper closed one at Blue Ridge Bone & Joint (now EmergeOrtho). I probably breathed too heavy. The more I tried to control my chest heaving up and down and try to picture myself on a mountain instead of an enclosed tube, the less air I felt I had. I shut my eyes before they stuffed me in but they had to stop and restuff the arm holder pads because they quit going in with me when they hit the opening. After just a few minutes my neck and both shoulders were tense and tight but they told me not to move so I didn’t adjust. About half way thru I realized when they put me in my right arm was no longer by my side but they told me not to move and I guess they could see what they were capturing. I’m glad it’s done and I guess they got what they needed because surgery is scheduled for next month.

My eyesight ain’t what it used to be!

My first set of bifocals were just not right. Over and over they told me I wasn’t looking in the right place. Trouble was I couldn’t find the right place because there wasn’t one.

I have myopia, or nearsightedness for years when in 2014  I could no longer see close up things within arms length without taking my single vision glasses off.

Aug 2013 Rx for distance only glasses was the last time I’d be happy with my glasses.
