So much has happened since my last update. I had my foot surgery two weeks ago. Everything went well. My stitches have been removed as of today. Soo very glad that portion of my day is over. YAY!! I went to my aunt's funeral last Friday. It was beautiful. Simple and nice with and Irish Wake afterwards. She was the last of the immediate family of my mother's family. The cousins on the Kenney side my mom's side that is are going to make a point of getting together at least twice a year. We have such a great time together and have so many wonderful memories together. The Kenney family is the musical side of my family.They knew how to party too!! LOL

My husband hasn't felt well for a month and I pleaded with him to see our dr. He finally went in the day of my foot surgery. He was diagnosed with diabetes. It was devastating news to him. I tried to help him eat right though the years and he wouldn't have it. He was a junk food junky. Not anymore. He's eating the way I do... healthy. I admit I sneak a treat here and there. He is in a deep depression and it's difficult to reasure him that everything will be alright cause he won't believe me. I have to let his emotions run their course I guess. I'm going email our dr. and tell him what's happening though.I'm hoping he can reasure him. I just found out that he has kidney stones and that's painful! When it rains it pours around here.

On another note I am slowly healing from my fall. I have permanent damage but nothing I can't live with. I'm still in therapy and will be for another 6 mo. supposedly. I'm starting to ride a stationary bike for my leg therapy. I have made great strides with my healing process and will continue to work my tushy off till my work is done. I am going to have to take time out for a while though my other sugery is tomorrow. It's going to take me at least three weeks before I can try to do anything.

The next step is surgery tomorrow. I know I will get through it but I always get nervous a few days prior to my surgery this time it was the day before. I keep hoping that some day I won't get nervous anymore. I know I have been told it's normal but I don't like feeling this way and I know everything will turn out fine it always has in the past.
I'm listening to Josh as often as I can. He calms me. I do need to download more of his music though before I go in tomorrow. I want as much as I can possibly have when I go into the OR tomorrow. He goes right along with me. My vitals and recovery are so much better when I listen to Josh while in the OR. I bet he never had any idea the talent he really has. LOL I am very thankful to take his voice and music with me.

Well that's it for now. I'll be back in a few days.

Have a great week my fellow Grobies!!

Shirley :)
