PT news

I had my session today for my sore shoulder. The outcome was positive. The therapist said that my shoulders(especially the left) were sore because they were so tight.i.e.lack flexibility. Uon moving my shoulder the tendons get pinched. When my shoulder hurt I avoided using it which diminished the range of motion and then exasperated the tightness. So she started me on stretching exercises.and I am optimistic that I will make good progress.

We have had a lovely visit with John and Shana. John received a smart phone and purchased a Kindle so he has been busy trying to figure them out. Shana stayed at kara’s and we really didn’t see much of her. Margie is not having surgery until March. CC here next week

The girls are counting down the days till Christmas and it is too close for comfort!  This evening Ella is at her final rehearsal for the Sunday School program at church tomorrow afternoon.  She has a solo to sing and is very excited about that.  Delaney, Matthew and I did a little last minute shopping after supper tonight.  Davie is wrapping some gifts.  Steve is watching a DVD of “Les Mis”  and soon Taylor will be here after collecting Ella at church, and will pick up Delaney and head back to Fishers.  Melissa put in a full day’s work at her job.  I have been busy with a million and one things, and look forward to some time tonight to just sit in the living room and relax.

Tis the season…

News from the Weekend

At 6:30 am I was wondering why we signed up for the 5 K Santa Hustle but once we got downtown I was glad we did.  An invigorating run - 11 minute miles.  I thought there were buckeyes at the end but it was chocolate covered cherries.  We then went to Whole Foods where they were having their holiday sample dinner. Then home to do our own baking - pumpernickel bread and cookies.

Weekend Reports

I guess 10 posts is our limit so I thought I’d give everyone a place to post activities from their weekend activities. We are headed out to the murder mystery dinner for Dave’s office party.  I shouldn’t be hungry as I was hungry after swimming so I came home and ate a snack which turned into dinner…

Sounds as if everyone is getting the end of the year doctor appointments in… Kate? Carol Fay? Barb?  Susan - the dr. cracked my neck also… what does that have to do with my shoulder blade or your rotator cuff?

Surgery and Christmas pins

First surgery.  Taylor had emergency surgery on Sunday afternoon for a severely infected and messed up gallbladder, also a stone in his appendix.  He is home now from the hospital, pain yet but just now able to keep solid food now.  He had been having gallbladder attacks (he now knows!) for the past several years.  We are thankful!

Christmas Pins.  Tonight at Poetry Plus we are having a guest speaker who will show us her collection of Christmas pins!  Something a little different from our usual fare!  All are welcome, 7:30 pm in the library at Pilgrim Luth. Church.  (By the way, our new church is rapidly taking form at 106th and Shelborne Road, ready by next summer to move into.)

Had an appointment today for a chiropractic treatment. I had purchased a groupon for that and a massage. Not surprisingly the doctor said he thought he could help me feel better. My insurance pays for all but the $40 copay and includes a massage so I am inclined to go for it. The masseuse worked on my sore shoulder(rotator cuff) and really dug in there. I think it did some good. I will not be at cc this week because I have a dinner to attend from Bill’s small church group. My “mountain in the way back is about head high now. I used my flowtron leaf eater to shred about ten bags of leaves so thay will decompose better by spring. I plan to plant my hills with lots of butternut squash. The vines take up lots of room so having this area will be a good thing.
