I am getting my arm back! The cortisone is making a difference.
Thursday, February 3, 2011
got Dove to the school, got home, Dash to the bus stop.
The day was a rest for an hour, then the mad rush came.
I called my former physical therapist to get a referral for someone who could help with my shoulder. It is just getting so bad. He told me that the specialist who works my knees is one of the best he knew.
Putting in a call, Brenda the office assistant asked 'can you be here in ten minutes'?
I got there in a rush. The surgeon was going on vacation in the morning. He thinks it is bursitis/impinged joint. He gave me a shot with a three inch needle in the shoulder of cortisone. OCH!
Left and went to my 11:30 appointment arrived with 5 minutes! We are going to up the stress medication during this time of increased physical pain. He thinks that the stress is hitting high due to the physical endurance.
Kids got home and we left straight away to get our allergy shots.Dove hurt me twice. she does not mean to she just forgets herself. It might be a type of reaction with the RAD. It really left me hurting. She play slapped me in my shoulder. She also hugged me so tight there that I almost began to cry. It is so hard to have special needs kids when they hurt me. I get real tired of there sensory stuff can cause me a real injury and does more often than folks might understand.
An xray of shoulder and knees to be done tomorrow. Knee shots week after next. Pain lets you know your alive. :}
An evening of rest.
Note they placed them right by my chair.
They even have their AR books (to take their test), and back packs.
That was complete with baby talk.
Then everything was alright and school was an accepted part of the morning. His whining stopped after this. So amazing even after all these years that security is such a wound for Dash.

They were free, and we have extra replacement parts for repairs too.
Resting is so important for our bodies.
That kept me busy baking cookies with the girls. The quilt top is finished, love it. My corners matched so beautifully.
As my sweetheart rested most of the morning I ground coffee, made pinto beans into re-fry beans (blender style, cleaned the kitchen and so on. By late afternoon he was well enough to take the drive to get the dishwasher.
Every day we use O.J. I am always looking for the best price on it. Recently I asked God for a good deal on juice. I try to keep enough for my husbands morning juice. This means often that I have to tell Dash no when he wants some. That really bothers me.
Dash and I juiced a full tree full of oranges from the neighbor. We come out a good three gallons. After a full evening of events. He helped so much.
Another two baskets of grapefruit and oranges on the fence post greeted me this morning.
It was so important to hear his heart.
I used my meat slicer and cut up a turkey breast smoked and roasted for lunch meat this week. We need to have lunch meat for homemade lunches. When those fresh turkeys that came my way after Christmas were cut up and put up into freezer it set us well.
The sky is just black to the west of me with the sun beaming through the eastern side against the yard walls. The dance of shadow and light is picturesque.
Older women likewise teach the younger women...
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

By Maya Angelou
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.
- A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
- The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
- Return with Honor
- The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
- "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
- “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
- "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
- "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
