Thursday, 9/18 -- This boot is made for walking!

Thursday, September 18, 2014

This is the first time I have ever had to treat a fracture with a boot. Nothing was done years ago for a fractured toe (nothing to do for that) or a fractured thumb (Dr. just said it was fractured) or a fractured/stoved(?) middle finger (splinted it myself with popsicle sticks.

I keep telling people I would be having great health if it weren't for accidents!

Anyway: This boot is made for walking! That's what I'm gonna do!
May walk slow as a turtle, but walking I will do.
Are you ready boot? Start walking!

Also: I am woman, hear me roar, never down this road before
Don't mess with me or you will see, I may 'boot' you out the door!
Yes, I fell down, without wisdom now the pain
Yes, I'm overweight, I frown at what I've gained . . .
Because I have to, I will walk anyway,
I am strong but not invincible because I have to, I can face the pain
I am strong, I am not invincible, I am woman . . .

* * * * * * * *
And this, too, shall pass! PTL! A sense of humor and a song usually work for me!

This, too, shall pass.

Off to see the orthopedic Dr. today to see what is to be done about this fractured foot. Maybe a boot? Maybe a cast? Maybe . . . Though this will curtail my exercising, 'this, too, shall pass.'

Have you heard it said, 'Time heals all wounds?' Return comment: If time was all it took to heal, it would be unnecessary for God.

God can heal with or without time. But, oh, how we hate to wait!

Have a great day! emoticon emoticon

Monday, Monday, Can't Trust that Day!

Monday, September 15, 2014

Update from family Dr. on the x-ray from ER. It is a fracture and I must see an orthopedic Dr. tomorrow to see what he thinks should be done.

I joined the Fall challenge and was so looking forward to it because I did a challenge before and was pleased with the results. Now what do I do? Most of the exercise challenges will probably of limits to me.

Think I need comfort from a cookie! emoticon

Weekend Review--Friday, Saturday, Sunday-- Fall, Fair, Falling

Monday, September 15, 2014

Friday was a day to remember for my oldest grandchild.
It started out a cool day, but it was a pleasant one and mild.
Out for a school outing, hiking up a hill
Then she slipped and lost her footing. Goodness what a spill!
Twenty feet! Flipping and flopping, tumbling down like Jack and Jill!
And when she hit the bottom, she lay there . . . very, very, still.
Momma and twin sister, got to her just as fast as they could.
Wow! Not a bone was broken! Our God is always good!

* * * * * * *

Friday evening we went to the local grange fair and saw quite a few folks we knew. Some family. Lots of entries into the food and crafts divisions. We didn't go to the animal section, though, and it was getting too cold to sit and watch the horse pulls.

Saturday, I slipped and fell down a couple of steps on our porch. Left foot and badly bruised, but the ER Dr. didn't think anything was broken. They gave me an air brace to help me walk. It didn't help much. Putting weight on the foot was terribly painful.

Sunday, the foot was much better. The swelling had gone down some, but still couldn't get many of my shoes on. Finally found a pair, though tight, and went out to church. After I am on the foot for awhile, the ankle aches.

Weekend through, looking forward to a better week.

  Accidents happen when we least expect them.
Usually shifts our routines somewhat.
Happy to hear you are both survivors.
Healing takes time. No way of getting around it.

Thinking It Over Thursday

Thursday, September 11, 2014

The Wonder of Walking: Just going for a brisk 20-minute walk can relax muscle spasms, soothe pain, and speed healing as effectively as a pricey professional massage, reveals a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.

Due to some joint problems, walking is what I do most for exercise. Uneven ground irritates an injured knee, so I do a lot inside. Leslie Sansone is good for me!

Quote of the day: "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." Thomas Edison

. . . and thinking about thinking, if I fall asleep on a yoga mat, does that count as meditating?

    yes, it counts!

I add the hours I fall asleep in my chair every night to my sleep hours.

So sleeping on the yoga mat is double time. Sleep & Meditation,
