Well, hells bells...

Got this adorable award from Chris at Enchanted Oak...the deal is link it back to her and send it on to at least 3 other bloggers? I've never done this, because well, you know...I'm a technotard!! And then list 10 things that make you happy. So, I'm sending it on to...Roxy, and Kathy, and Carol, and Gary
WooHoo! You're tagged!!
My list of (only??) 10 things that make me happy:
1) That Irishman
2) Friends
3) Spring wildflowers
4) Good Coffee!!!
5) Family
6) Furry friends
7) Random Acts of Kindness
8) Being Sober and living ODAAT
9) Other happy people
10) Writing, Reading, and all the other things I take for granted.

And there you have it


I have been feeling great all day, until about 4 this afternoon, suddenly started hurting like the dickens. Laid up and read, took it real easy...this afternoon earlier, I gently swept the kitchen floor and walked out to the mailbox on my crutches. Then around the house to the chicken coop, where I gathered eggs. Hobbled back in and it hurt quite a bit, and I realized it had been feeling so good all day I hadn't taken any pain medication. So I took some and didn't think too much more about it. When hubby got home from work, I asked him to help me change the ice packs because I was feeling rough, and when we opened it up there was blood everywhere. Apparently, I broke one of the stitches on the left side of the knee. (They only have 2 stitches in each one). It's been bleeding off and on all night, so first thing in the morning I have to call the doctors office and see what they want me to do.

It's scaring me a little. One tiny little hole shouldn't be causing me this much trouble. lol

I slept really well last night and didn't get up til after 9 o'clock this morning!!

And I just want to say thank you to you all for your kindness and concern. It means so much.

Tonight I had to wake the Irishman, and I always try to not ever do that...he's an early sleeper/riser and our schedules are pretty mismatched, because of his work hours. Bless his heart, he scolded me for apologizing for waking him up...but I know he doesn't do well without his requisite 8 hours.

So goes day 1 of the recovery process. I hope that I haven't done any grave damage, I don't think I did and the doc said full weight bearing on the guess I just have to wait and see.

Anyhoo, it's off to bed for this old cow...see you tomorrow earlier, with my Flash 55....

Love and big sloppy smoochies to you all.

OMG, I use the phrase "old cow," too. How funny!

A., I'm sure you haven't done any damage. Let us know what the doctor says.

Hang in there!

You are such a dear! I also hope everything will be okay, but I must say I love sloppy smooches when they can be received virtually! Glad you're feeling so well.

We just don't slow it down easily do we?

I love you and hope you heal quickly and that this is just a small speedbump on an otherwise long, easily winding road

WITH joy, hope and friendship

of happy destiny!

PS the verification word for that was "blumpt" which makes me laugh because I want to make up definitions for that.

I hope your knee is feeling better soon. You are a dear soul.

Thank you!! for the nice award! I am so proud of myself that I figured out how to "pick it up." Talk about a technotard!


Prayer Girl said...

And love and great smoochies right back at ya.

My guess is no real harm done to the knee. I'll keep praying though.

That would be worrisome to feel the pain and then see blood. I like your list of things that make you happy. I would have had to put good coffee in second place!

Enchanted Oak said...

I love your list! We'll see what the doc says. My guess is no biggie. But scary, yeah. Take care of yourself. Stop picking up eggs.
