Hi, all, and thanks for checking up on me....yes, a busy time of year around the office made much easier by a pain-free hip! Our weather has been gorgeous which makes it harder to stay focused and work but I pray for all those areas so adversely affected by Mother Nature. Our friends in CA are fine but have been without power for days, roads impassable, etc. Our lesson in survival of THR serves us well in all areas of life....we all MUST BE SURVIVORS!
Viral infection traces are gone, not much problem with fatigue anymore except by Friday, my a** is dragging but it should be, right??
The only puzzling issue I'm dealing with now is my feet are swelling. Some days are worse than others and I may not be drinking enough water or perhaps adding some salt back to my diet after months of abstaining is the culprit but it is aggravating. No pain, nothing serious, just plump ankles at days' end.
I'd like to tell you of a sweet blessing that I probably encouraged along....one of my friends has really needed THR for a very long time. She had hers on 12/28/22 and is ridiculously happy now that it's done and she's well on her way to a very successful recovery and rehab. She had known of mine, particularly questioning me about #2 since it was so recent and she was still in the "educate yourself" phase so I've been a little support system she feels free to ask those questions of without judgement. You never know when something you've experienced or survived will be just the nudge someone else needs to create a better life for themselves and their families. It has been I who have been blessed by this opportunity.
Regarding the "new house", well, we're slowing working on it, lining up different people to do what it requires before I get my hands on the "pretty stuff". This week the roofers came to tighten down the screws on the metal roofing. We also purchased and had installed a new HVAC unit for inside and outside as there were several potential issues that could have occurred with the old one. This way, it will be in perfect shape for our hot summers without worry. Carpentry work is next and we're "on the list"
I'll check back in a couple of weeks, hoping that my ankles settled down, and all of you continue to have great outcomes with your own miracle!
