Greatings to all! So sorry I haven't been posting for awhile! Things have been pretty crazy in Peteworld lately. As some of you know, my 83 y/o Mom is a snow goose! I drive her up to her lake house in N. Joisey in the Spring and fly back to Fla. Then in the Fall, I fly up there to drive her back! A few days before leaving for Jersey about two weeks ago, my
sister-in-law was in the town next to us visiting her 90 y/o father and helping him out w/ some chores. He still lives alone! She was cutting a limb off a big live oak tree on a ladder w/ an electric chain saw> a big NO~NO!!! She fell off and broke her back! A burst fracture to a vertabrae in the lumbar section> The worst kind of broken back there is! She is so lucky that she didn't loose any feeling in her legs!!! Anyway, between getting ready for my trip, having people (family) stay here and at Mom's place to visit my S-I-L in the hospital and going to see her myself, there was little time to get on line!
Then there was the trip north! No computor at Mom's> She thinks they are evil and maybe she's right??? I was up there closing up her house, cutting tree limbs, raking leaves and taking them away and of course fly fishing the local streams and fishing in her lake for about a week!! (I caught lots of feesh!) I evan went to the Giants vs Lions game at the new Giant's stadium!!! The G-men evan won> Go Big Blue!!!
As usual, I over did it and was hurting pretty bad the whole time up there> using heating pads> tens unit> hot showers & lots of meds I was able to stay on task most of the time. Then there was the drive back to Fla w/ Mom & her cat Charley!!!!! It seemed longer than usual but nice weather driving through the Shenendoa Valley (awsome colors on the mts.!) and we survived it. Now I'm hurting much worse than usual! We got back Weds night and I haven't done much since getting home, it just hurts too much! I keep switching the sticky pads of my tens from my lower back to my neck trying to numb the pain. I feel bad as I haven't helped my wife w/ any chores since getting home! I feel useless and hate it! I have to get back into my groove and get moving! GGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Well fams, I'm having trouble sitting here, it's hurting way too much! I'll try to start posting again cause I miss Y'all so much! Hope all Y'all are feeling better and Big Hugs to all!!!
