"Largest snow storm of the year"


The snow is back, with a vengeance! Supposed to get 6-12 inches by noon tomorrow. There was NADA at 7:30 and by noon the neighbor was SKIING!
Alex made a quick run round the back yard, but he was too fast to catch him on camera today. Ok, I was too slow....

Graduation, back to shoes


Finally, graduated back to regular pants and shoes! Yahoo!!
It is a bit crowded in the shoe, with this brace, but so far, so good. A friend with a bad leg/knee injury said her PT told her to use ice three times a day to keep swelling down. I will have to try that!

Now, to learn to NOT walk like a Duck!!

Alex will like this. Part of my therapy will be to walk him, if it ever stops raining!

watching Alex & Kit play

One of the fun things about this enforced layoff is watching Alex and Kit play - they always do some at night, but now I know they get into play on some level at least 3-4 times a day. Alex cleans Kit's ears and Kit cleans Alex's face. They play tag - and you would not guess who is usually running in front! TAG! Kit is it!!! If I call Alex to me, Kit runs behind and waits for him to finish reporting so they can get back to it. Way funny!

I will miss them when I go back to work - normally a 9-10 hour (gone) day.

ankle progress - 2 mos

It has been two months since I broke my ankle and I am now in an aircast. I took these today after I bathed and cleaned my wounds. I have to redress them daily. Back to the Dr tomorrow to gauge my healing and progress.
Alex has been remarkably patient with me, so today he was rewarded with his first walk since New Year's Day. It was only a slow and short one around the block, but I know he was happy. And I am glad I went early - it all hurts now. Too tired!
I also finally got the Christmas stuff put away in the basement and gathered 3 large bags of trash for the garbage man tomorrow. May as well catch up on something. No driving, so basement sorting is as good as anything.
I will know I am really bored when I finish my taxes!! ;-)

I found this great blog of other folks who have broken their ankle. I will have lots more questions for the Dr tomorrow!
Take care...
