Bum Wheel


Since having lung cancer did not slow me down enough, I've been given a new challenge. Early this morning I was sitting at the computer (at home) and I stood up to answer my cell phone in the kitchen, when my foot decided to be asleep. I went to take a step and instead heard 3 or 4 pop sounds then fell to the floor. Luckily, nothing is broken. Unluckily, it appears I've torn some tendons in my ankle/foot. I guess this will slow me down whether I like it or not. I really am fine, but I'm not suppose to put any weight on it until I see a specialist on Wednesday (that's next Wednesday - 6 days from now) I'm sorry, but I have way too many things to do before then, so I'm going to be very good for the next few days and see if I can speed things up a bit. Crutches are my friend....

I'm sorry that I've been slacking on my blog lately. Now that I'm laid up with a cough and a bad wheel, maybe I can communicate a little more regularly.

Just a reminder that Thanksgiving is coming up. Even through some very challenging times we've faced this year, I'm constantly reminded how truly thankful I am. Take the time to reflect on your family and friends and I'll bet you'll feel the same way.

Love you more than all the turkeys in your grocery store's freezer, gobble...

Doreen,
So sorry to hear about your trip (not the one to SF but the one at home). However, it will give you a good excuse to be catered to during the Husky-Cougar game tomorrow. Don't let Angie use that "sore neck" excuse either. I have a nice purple comforter with a big "W" on it if you want to borrow it.
