First of all praise and glory to
God Our Father.
Thanksgiving for good news at the MD.
As many of you read I had a fall Wednesday.
I have fallen numerous times in the last year and we all decided we needed some answers.
What did you do?
Did you get dizzy?
Why were you out?
What kind of shoes did you have on?
You need a Life Alert, you know one of those things for old ladies.
Well I visited my Orthopedic MD on Friday with all my bruises, scratched up face and fat lip and the hip that has been bothering me since my really bad fall on Derby day turns out to be a little arthritis and bursitis.
Okay, physical therapy will get me on my feet again and some promises were made.
I made a necklace for my phone so that I can have it with me all the time.
Will see my diabetic MD Tuesday and get RX for Diabetic shoes.
Have you seen these lately?
There are some really cute and easy to put on ones.
Will use a cane til the leg is stronger.
(MD said use a walker, but not yet. I would fall and hurt myself worse. Those things make you even more dependent and encourage less strong muscles.)
We will compromise.
Will Mod Podge some pretty paper and purple ribbon on my cane and call it Maxine.
Maxine can do anything she wants.
Will add one more Aleve to my daily dose for pain.
So I am not giving up, just admitting I am aging. Notice I did not say old, just aging.
Why do I have such a hard time with that word?
I know Jesus suffered enough in His few short years on earth, but He never had to get old.
Forgive me if that is blasphemous.
Just hedging a little.
Thanks to all for good wishes, e-cards, calls and a prayer or two.
Love ya all.
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
