Hippy Hopppy Home Again

Be it ever so humble there is no place like home.

Granddaughter is staying with me a few days to help out.

We tried to go out to eat after we left rehab. I did fine for about 30 minutes and then it was like I hit a brick wall. I almost didn't make it back to the car. Yesterday I just laid around and took it easy. Today we got up and started in we have laundry going. We cleaned out the refrig. Loaded the dishwasher and are just resting.

I have caught up on e-mails. Ordered a embroidery piece that will be a challenger for me.

I need to fold some clothes so that M can put them away.

I am not as strong as I thought I was I need to work on that.

Last night in rehab

My 10 days in rehab have been a good experience. I have made some good friends in the staff and patients. Maybe my prayer for some friends that are retired and don't work is being answered. I am going down to another room in a little while for a chat before bed time. These ladies are still here for awhile but live in the same general part of town that I live in.

I'm so happy to see pictures of my great grans on face book. One in California the other in Mississippi. I would never get to see them some of them are even moving that is great to see one get his first taste of solid food. The other one taking a bath in his grandmothers sink.

Next blog from home.

Hello from Rehab

Son told you on his blog how I wound up here. The week in the hospital was terrible. Rehab is better the doc's are listening to me about medication. When you have been on pain killers and shills med for 4 years. Your body goes into withdrawal. I have been taking 10 codine and 325 tyendol. Lyrica is for the shills med.

I kept trying to tell them I was in withdrawal and the pain was intense. Hospital doc wouldn't believe me. They cut me down to 5 codine and 500 tyendol. Doc's have told me that much tyendol was danergous for my kidneys. Anyway I fought the entire week I was in the hospital.

When I arrived in rehab they immediately listened and started with the correct doseage. I had a little trouble getting pills scaped out to my usual ones but that is working alright.

Rehab is working well I am walking twice a day besides that they have me doing. Friends have been good in coming by so I see family or friends once or twice a day.

Number one sons bog is keeping me up on all the news. I am appaled at Baylor's choice of president. Is all the colleages and seminaries preaching funday teaching today. No wonder young men and women are staying away in bunches.
