I have to go to my daughter's in Grand Rapids and do "child care" while she has another cortisone injection into her spine. MC is now walking very well with her walker and also can carry baby in one arm while she holds the wall for support with the other. She has a "cottage-style" home, broken up into many small rooms, which makes maneuvering with the wall for support very easy for her. Her grit and determination are an inspiration to me. It's been almost a year since her incomplete spinal cord injury and we have since learned that the doctors thought she would be in a wheelchair for life... She has astounded all of them and it's your prayers that have kept moving along in her healing. Thank you, my friends.
After a few days in Grand Rapids hubby & I will be heading up to Lake Leelanau to close the trailer for the winter. Lots of heavy lifting there
. I should be ok, though. Yesterday I planted 100 daffodills, took a shower and some pain meds and went into a coma for the night. I feel surprisingly limber today and only a little sore. Seems the more I have to do the more my body meets the challenge. I do a little, sit down with a cold drink, rest, and get back at it. For me, beating fibro is a matter of Malic Acid and determination with a little pain med relief now and again. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you all on Monday.
