it is funny how our milestones change from freedom to use the washroom on my own to driving my van into town. i can now do most of the in-house basics, and a few of the ones not inside. there is still alot that is beyond me and still a long way to go....but time is ticking forward and i assume my ankle is healing well (i go for xrays next week so i will know then for sure). i am hoping once they see them they declare me a miracle and tell me i am free to walk a couple of months early. (it could happen you know!)
in the meantime, i need to figure out how to re-locate those cats back to their area. especially boo who has made my bed hers. she freaks out poor maudie in the middle of the night if maudie decides to move. and i really don't want 6 cats in my bedroom, including 2 that live under my bed. i want them in baskets and on couches and laying outside in the breeze on nice days.
in that month we have welcomed trev and mable and lost cedric and moses. and sad-man is happy, hank got the home of his dreams, and tigger woods has a normal face. our fields look wonderful and are safer and healthier for the big guys outside and the killer maple tree is just a memory, laying out on the ground.
a month ago today i was laying in the OR waiting to have a long sleep and all i could think about was the disaster of a broken bone and what that meant to all of us.
well it meant a great deal, and really not all that much too, cuz life just kept happening, like it always does.
