It's been a pretty normal day around Honeysuckle Hill. Normal for us, anyway. Chilly, windy and grey. The chickens didn't want to come out of the coop this morning, one of the dogs stood in a corner growling at her own shadow for over 10 minutes, the oldest of the cats insisted on going out in the mudroom (he usually stays in--hates the cold) and then as soon as I would close the door, insisted on coming back in immediately. And by "insisted" I mean the butthead would sit there and yowl until I opened the door again.
Thank Goodness, I had to leave to go to PT and was gone for almost 4 hours. God only knows what they did while I was gone (conspire, probably) lol.
Tonight the dogs have all 3 been acting crazy...something must have been traipsing through the side yard, and they wanted out to get it, but then in because it was 32 degrees. lol Out and In and out and In and finally I told their slave to stop putting them out!!!! The Irishman glared at me and I ignored him. But they were up on the back of the love seat that sits in front of the picture window, acting stupid and making everyone nuts. I threatened their lives. The next time he let them out, Bella's collar fastener broke, and she bolted out the door and was gone for 2 hours. I wouldn't worry, except there has been a lot of coyote activity and lots of pups yapping...she's not smart enough to leave them alone, and I was worried she'd get into an altercation. But--she didn't. I went out again and whistled for her and she came bounding from around the house, muddy and happy. She's sleeping here at my feet.
Good news on the PT front: I am making such progress that starting next week I will only have to come in twice a week instead of 3 times. YIPPEE !!!! He also prescribed 4 more 15 minute massages. WooHoo!! I can tell I am stronger and that the PT is working and I am very glad.
The 3rd injection in my knee was today as well. It went smoothly with a minimum of pain. He did say that he thinks the tendon there is calcified. Apparently a by-product of the inflammation. He said he kept hitting it with the needle and it was hard as bone. I've been studying up this evening trying to find out what to do for inflammation. Inflammation is bad in my right wrist too...diet change is in order and I will take necessary steps to try to manage this stuff without any more surgery. Wish me luck.
Got a sweet pictuire of my great nephew Reef today. Picture of the little booger laying on the blankie I made for him. I'm thinking about taking all the pictures of all the blankets and making a collage out of them. Here is his little Hiney-ness...
When I made this blanket, we didn't know whether he was a girl or boy yet, so I played it safe and went with a jungle babies print.
Isn't he gorgeous ?? Just like his mama.
Okay, it's after midnight and I need some sleep. Sitting for my neighbor tomorrow and have to be up at a reasonable hour to get everything done so I can go.
Sweet dreams all...
