MY WOUNDS ARE DOING VERY WELL .. FILLING IN TEH HOLES THE WAY GRACE DID--- WASH OUT -BLOT WITH STERILE GAUZE,SQUEEZE ON NEOSPOXXXX MASH THAT IN WITH VASILINE SOAKED GAUZE THE NON STICK AND GAUZE AND THEN-----... BLESS THE CP'S WHO SENT THE VET WRAP !!
THE REST OF ME FROM THE FALL IS HAVING SOME SERIOUS ISSUES...IN SPITE OF BEING SERIOUSLY PADDED, I HIT THE GROUND BIG TIME-- AND I TOLD THEM AT THE TIME I DID NOT LOOSE CONSCIOUSNESS- BUT IN RECONSTRUCTING IT . I DON'T REMEMBER HOW WE GOT FROM HIM GRABBING MY ARM AND ME PULLING HIM OUT---- TO SITTING AROUND HOLDING MY WRIST -WITH HIM STANDING QUIETLY NEXT TO ME TRYING TO LICK UP THE MESS- I AM TOTALLY MINUS THE PART FROM SEEING HIM CONVULSED-- TO HIM LETTING GO AND STANDING UP.-- MY ONLY CLUE I S THERE WAS GRAVEL IN MY HAIR WHEN I WASHED IT AFTER THE EPISODE.
GIVES ME ANOTHER APPRECIATION OF HNDICAPPED... LITTLE THINGS...LIKE DROPPING PIECE OF PAPER-- A BAINDAID WRAPPER--- IT BECOMES A MONUMENTAL EFFORT TO PICK IT UP WHEN YOU MISS THE SCRAPBASKET.. AND WHAT HAPPENS IS.. I JUST DON'T...- SO I HATEE TO ASK TEH VOLUNTEERS TO PICK UP AFTER ME.. BUT AFTER MY DAILY BAINDAGE CHANGE-- THERE ARE 4785 LITTLE BITS OF STUFF AROUND THE TRASH BASKET IN MY ROOM.
I AM SURE I WOULD LOOSE WEIGHT IF THERE WEREE NO VOLUNTEERS TO HELP ME...BECAUSE COOKING IS OUT-- AND DONNA IS SOOOOO GOOD AT COOKING STEAK...AND BEFORE MY SHOCKING EXPERIENCE-- I HAD LOADED UP THE FREEZER WITH SOME REALLY GOOD LOOKING STEAKS FROM COSTCO-- THEY SOMETIMES HAVE "PRIME' BEEF INA VERY SMALL SECTION-- AND IS IT EVER GOOD.... WELL MARBLED--NICE ! CSOCO NORMAL BEEF "CHOICE" IS NOT BAD... BU THIS PRIME SECTION IS SOMETHING TO LOOK FOR- EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO EAD MAC AND CHEESE FOR A WEEK TO PAY FOR IT.. IT IS GOOD.
I HAVE LOADS OF PAPERWOK I CAN DO TO KEEP ME ENTERTAINED. I HAVE NOT BEEN OUT OF THE HOUSE SINCE.....AND THAT NONSENSE HAS TO STOP--I MUST EXPAND MY CHALLANGES - PEOPLE TALK ABOUT CLIMBING MT EVEREST- MY CURRENT CHALLANGE IS TO PUSH THE FLUSH HANDLE AND TRY AND GET SOCKS ON MY FEET. HARDLY AN INTERESTING EXSISTANCE...
I WILL GIVE IN FOR ANOTEHR DAY OR SO... DO A BUNCH OF IRS STUFF- SLEEP IN THE CHAIR NEXT TO THE FIREPLACE... BUT THEN I HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE !!!! AT LEAST RIDE AROUND IN THE TRACTOR.. I HAVE HEARD RUMORS OF A BIG SNOWSTORM????
Subject: Cakes for Fire Departments
Couldn't believe what happened to you and Bentley. How many times have the Hey Dawg and I ridden in elevators never expecting the unexpected. Do notice the date inspections stickers and will be diligent do that in the future. Thank the Lord you are safe and healing as is Bentley.
Hey and I along with Jerry will deliver a thank you cake to the Wenham and Hamilton fire departments on February 19. Do send along your statement so we can represent the Service Dog Project correctly.
WOOF, Hey, Gay and Jerry
AND THEN THERE IS THE BED....
From Bella's Mom:
I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of photos of these 2 monkeys on the Barker Bed! It seems this is the new favorite spot. Now Bella has slept on the Barker Bed 2 nights in a row. George has started with her and then moves to the twin. It's kinda funny that the human is in the dog bed and the dog is
in the human bed. Bella says the Barker Bed is super comfortable.
George did a little better in school today. Bella did take his jacket off so he could feel her holding on better. I also told her to switch things up a bit. George may be to comfortable in his routine and just focuses on going from point a to point b that he forgets he is supposed to be helping Bella get there
safely. A year ago it would really have been difficult for Bella to get from point a to point b on her own without george or crutches but now she has gained to much strength that she can manage to get there herself with less pain and discomfort.But otherwise they had a great day. Thanks for checking in!
BELLA IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT !!!! I TOLD YOU ALL-- THAT BARKER BED FOAM IS SOMETHING ELSE--AND WE ALL HAVE SLEPT ON IT AS WE WAIT FOR PUPPIES TO BE BORN... I ASKED MR BARKER ABOUT ONE FOR MY BED AND HE SAID IT WAS POSSIBLE BUT EXPENSIVE.
NOW WITH MY LATEST INFIRMARIES I AM THINKING MAYBE NOW IS THE TIME FOR ME TO GET ONE FOR MY BED,,
