Still no getting around without a walker. Steps are an adventure, up or down equally challenging. 45 minutes of physical therapy, twice a week, began today. Has a list of impossible exercises but determined to try following the regimen laid out. Pain controlled by lots of drugs. I'm still the cook, for the most part. Just got done fixing her bed for the night. Whatever position she starts at, it's where she has to spend the night as there is no turning over without getting up. Feeling extends to where she can now feel her knees. She even insisted on washing some dishes last night but did it in 3 or 4 short sessions. We're aiming to be rid of the walker about the first of March and then just a cane after that. But despite how bad I make it sound, every day shows a slight improvement.
glad too hear she is on the mend Martin! don't push not using the walker too much, better to rely on it to long than not enough! there is an all terrain walker that my gran used to get around gardening till she was 93, wish we had not let it go now!
Hey Tallpines....I hear where slightly cooler temps and passing a hand or such over the top portion of the plant(like ruffling hair)makes for stockier tomato seedlings !!! HehHehHeh...what husband dosen't occaionally "ruffle" the wife??!!
Being serious now, all the best to you and the Missus, Martin!! bee
