funny happenings

the first day of occupational therapy, i laughed and snorted. the lady asked if that was normal laughing herself. hubby said yes since the stroke. lol

the other day i decided the stairs would be a good thing. i went right up them, no cane, no problem. jessup sat up fast. it was time therapy and watch ZoZo. farra followed me once she saw me go up. i did them on my own! laughed most of way.

after therapy we had to go to the army hospital to pick up some drugs that hubby forgot,he went to get a car at the son’s house in Virginia. farra forgot where they were and guy helped us,we got in the elevator started laughing. no snorting maybe its correcting it self.

after long wait at the hospital we went to the commissary. i walked the whole thing with the cane. i was wore out. my hand was lazy and was hanging. sore.

last weekend i decided to do the hand exercises and was on the floor to lean on my hand. don walked in and thought i fell. laugh. i said no madanna did teach me how to get up and down. he was relieved. the leaning on hand really helps wake up my sleeping right hand. small progresses.

still need don to help but doing more on my own, just takes forever. don is trying out a job this next week but farra will be here. i get all my teeth pulled tomorrow and first dentures. sore im sure i will be. second dentures in four months i think. i just want pain to be gone and to eat. sounds like our family has dentures. sadness.

doctors

well i weighed in at 149 and in December i weighed 183. at the point that i was eating from a tube i was 140. crazy how much i lost. my legs were so thin it was weird. slowly building muscle again. and moving around. physical therapist is really good. he even does things for my arm. Monday we get occupational therapist for the arm. it moves but no typing and such. i can open my fingers. don said in December i couldn’t move my left arm, i just kept working with it. that would have sucked .i didn’t have to do any scans the last two weeks. but now i have a heart monitor for a month. no one knows for sure why i had the brain bleed. i do have to do a ct scan to make sure i don’t have pneumonia. i did in December .i get to do it here. we see a doctor here Wednesday. my life is now doctors. then on Friday it is the dentist. getting all my teeth pulled and dentures. they hurt bad and don’t want eat. yes i am bad for not going to the dentist. few times that i did it hurt a lot. but instead of 5 years like the one periodontist said i kept them 20. i didn’t care for him. he was not nice. that’s going to cost. i will be glad to have teeth just not the pain at first. they even thought i had an immune system problem the doctor ruled it out. i think it was just high blood pressure .i am a mystery. i don’t remember anything in December. I guess they ran every test possible. i had back punctures for protein, i had heart scoped, etc. you wouldn’t believe the bills, but Tricare has done good. still difficult with don staying home with me. but i am glad he could.

milestones

i got up a few times more. i couldnt stop laughing.the head injury makes me laugh and cry. i hate that.i have some medicine but dont want to take it all the time. i walked today without the cane. don stayed beside me. i think walking the pond and treadmill everyday really helps. as for the hand its slow but i can slowly empty it. i i cant completely lift it yet.you never realize how much you need both hands.who would have ever thought id become a lefty.but walking without the cane will help me do stuff with the left eventually.

Christmas DIY Ornaments – The Start of New Traditions

The daughter is so creative! Love it!

Lights, Camera, Action

This is technically my Daughter’s second Christmas, but it’s the first that she can actually be involved of her own accord on some things. Normally, we spend Thanksgiving at my Mother’s home and this year was no different. After turkey dinner, we usually set up the Christmas tree. Well, at least within the next couple days. My daughter was such a big help! She loves helping. “Help” has become one of her favorite words, in fact. Grandma would put the branches on the tree and ZeQara, my daughter, would hand her another.

Watching the whole interaction made me realize how much I want to create traditions with my daughter like I’ve had with my family over the years. I remembered recently watching an episode of The Vampire Diaries where they made a popcorn garland every year for their town tree. What a perfect tradition for us! Not the popcorn garland…
