Surgery Day – Part 2

read

Well! I did not mean to leave you hanging since I wrote Part 1 of this story! My sincerest apologies. Just when I thought I was out of the woods, things came crashing down again. Oh, you just have no idea. But you will. It’s been quite a ride. So while things are good, (and […]

Foot to mouth story 1 – getting prepared for surgery

read

Hello friends! It’s been awhile. So while things are ok at the moment where sitting upright in front of a computer screen seems feasible, I felt it would be a good time to share a health update on my recent tooth pulling foot surgery story.

As the regular readers of this blog will already know, this is kind of a big week in my imperfect little world. I was scheduled for the pulling of a failed tooth and an upcoming surgery I talked about in THIS post. So while I’ve been fussing and worrying and preparing and trying to forget […]

Until I got chilly. Then I went out and started all over again. I’ll admit though, evening bike rides during hot […]

I’ve started a few new good habits lately. One is walking every evening. I put the bike riding away for a spell because I wanted to see if walking would offer a few more health benefits. So far I do feel stronger, and have a little more spring in my step! Yay me! I think […]
