Days spent in the back yard...

This was taken a few days ago by Sarah. The toot would not stand still for a good photo...anyway.....the girls are here. Well, right now only the toot is here...asleep for the night I hope.

Today has been a big day. I had to be at the doctor's office this morn at 8:45. I was dreading it so bad, but walked out full of hope. First I had to have some more x-rays, and one position I had to hold hurt really bad. Next I seen the doctor. He was a young doctor...one I immediately had confidence in.

He does not think I need surgery, and thinks I can get all movement back with therapy. He did give me a steroid shot in the shoulder....not fun. Oh, it wasn't horrible....just a bit more than a normal shot. He said it would take a couple days to take effect and then I should not feel pain.

I am going to have to focus on doing the therapy though and not have days like today where I cannot even take time to do them.
*************
After we got home from there, the girls got here in just a little while. Oldest daughter and I had to go get her self-storage rented, then to get a lock for it....and from there they started loading the truck, trailer and cars. They got the most of it in the first round....not too much at all left for the second round of loads...

Now if it hails, we can put the truck in the garage, and IF I find a few more things of oldest daughter, I can take it and put it in storage.

While they were doing that moving, I played with Lorelei....most of the time was spent playing with water/sprinkler/rocks. She loves running water in a bucket and bowl and having smaller things to fill and pour it from here to there. And she LOVES rocks...

I may try to visit a few blogs now, but am so tired I don't know if I will get far. and I may not get much done tomorrow as I plan on babysitting the toot while her mom tries to get some other stuff done.

Judy said...

I love her expression, that is awesome. She looks a lot like our little Esmie who is about the same age. You just take it easy and get better.

Ginny said...

What a cute picture! Are your daughters moving in? Gosh, I hope that shot starts to help and then you can do the P.T.

A fine shot of Lorelei. I hope you shoulder feel pain free very soon. Chronic, severe pain not only hurts, but it takes something out of a person. Very tiring.

Oh..I have had problems in both shoulders and needed the shots and then therapy...It is so painful and darned if you don't need your shoulder for so much of what you do..


You had mentioned that you can't have a bird bath. There is a cute little one that I have that hangs in a tree from Duncraft...Michelle

She's pretty cute. Hope your shoulder is okay.

I'm amazed you do as much as you do with that bad shoulder. I sure do hope the steroid shot works wonders for you!

Jacob said...

A painful shoulder is no fun at all. But I think the shot and the therapy will help a lot.

I'm always amazed, when I get hurt, how vulnerable we humans are.

Please concentrate on yourself and your family and don't worry about blogging. You'll have time to do that in the days ahead!

A piece of news said...

I have been super-compliant with my physical therapy and it's been three weeks now. I'm noticing differences. I do it at home regularly, so I highly recommend that. I hope the effect of the steroid makes a real difference for you.

I'm so glad to hear you won't need surgery!

Your little granddaughter is so darling. :))

Sunday hugs from Port Canaveral,
