See You Later.








 My yard and my body are in the same state. We need repairs. I have avascular necrosis. Those who have inquiring minds can google that and see why I am having so many problems with my bones.
Friday unless we change the plan, I am going to have surgery on my right shoulder. I haven't been blogging much because it hurts me to type. The truth is between pain and depression and not getting much rest I haven't felt like doing much of anything.

My dog has been good medicine. He is a reason to get up and get going. He is so sweet and thankfully he is laid back and seems to know when I'm not feeling good.

Because this is my right arm and I'm right handed  I don't know how long I'll be gone. I may read your blogs and not comment but you'll know who it is if you have a visitor button. I'll miss you probably more than you'll miss me. Lately my life has bored me to death.  I'm not good at this patient thing. Having these changes in my health has been the lousiest plate of humble pie I've ever had to eat. About the hardest thing for a care giver to do is be a care receiver. But that is where I am and I can't side step it.

 So this is my farewell for now post. Friday I have surgery and recovery will take time.

Be good, enjoy your babies and families. Don't sweat the small stuff, don't fret about fat thighs, be grateful for health and strength for each day. Give thanks for your life, for your abilities to do the things you want to do. God is good, even when He takes us some where we don't want to go. He never send us off by ourselves.  It's funny because I have been pretty grumpy. I have wanted to be alone. I'm tired of being in pain and I don't even want to talk about it anymore. But God is invisible company! His presence however can be felt. I can't get away even when I wish I could.

I'm saying more than I really want too. I just can't wave bye though and say nothing. I'll be back when I can and until then...so long.

Best of luck on your surgery and your healing and on coming back with all your strengths restored.
I'm glad you have your puppy to help you keep a positive outlook.

Take care of yourself and I will be praying for you on Friday. Have your Hubby do a post and let us know how you are.

Dear KD,
I will be thinking of you Friday and wishing you a complete recovery. I had avascular necrosis in my right hip in 2005, ended up with a full hip replacement in 2006. Unless one has been there, it is hard to describe the pain, it is excruciating. Mine was gone when I woke up in recovery, hope you will feel the relief as well.
