Back in the crib


Well its great to be back home. Now its time to get it together and make it work from the house. That means at home Physical Therapy and new treatment. So far so good and the weakness is getting stronger. We are looking forward to walking without a walker sooner rather than later...at least the PT guys think so. So its time to strap on those leg weights and get to some leg lifts (something I couldn't do just a few weeks ago!) Hopefully by the time I get my legs back I have this diabetes under control as well and figure out how to manage that blood sugar (bye bye Bryers Strawberry cheesecake ice cream!) But its all good and I am still soo sooo BLESSED! Every day I can get up and take a breath is another day where I can serve the Lord and make some impact here.

Oh and as you can see I am bald again...I had the reverse Mohawk going before (because of radiation no hair in the middle of my head!) ...trust me it was very scary looking. So now back to a clean head. Maybe it will grow back at some point!! I miss the hair!!! It would help to cover the mega chipmunk cheeks...yes I am still talking about the cheeks!! And don't let me get started about the double chin and the big gutts (stomach). These stink steriods!!!!

Glad to hear that you are back home. You have always been a strong one, and I know that will regain your strength soon with the help of the God Almighty.
Take Care and God Bless
