Feeling so good on the steroids. The muscle weakness I usually have is gone, most of the pain and muscle spasms are gone or really mild, I can get out of bed in the morning and actually walk instead of wobbling like a Weeble for the first hour or so. I have my happy mood back and that is worth so much to me, I can move and hold things. I love it. I almost dread when I am finished with them.
My son and his wife were both off at the same time yesterday and today, rare for them right now since the hospital changed everyone's schedules and he is back in school. My husband and I and my husband's sometimes worker went over there and helped them get the old fence out to the street to be picked up, got the ground up tree stump mulch moved, got post holes dug through huge, body sized, tree roots and got posts set to get his fence back up. He and his trusty screw gun can get the rest up by himself on his next off day. After we got it to where the men could do the hole digging she and I went inside and got all the sheetrock and dust and mess cleaned up that they had made putting in the new hot water heater and got everything back to normal. With their lives nearing normal again they are so much less stressed.
As a result of the above, they had some time today to attend the annual arts festival that their city has. Her mother and I joined them and a great time was had by all. Good local music, beautiful handicrafts, lovely paintings, lots of info from local businesses and hospitals. Got some Christmas shopping done for the family. We really have some talented people in this area. So many people get famous for their arts of different kinds.
Both yesterday and today I was not able to eat as planned since the meals were provided by someone else yesterday and today we only had food trucks to choose from. I chose the best that I could from what was available, had no desserts or snacks or extras of any kind. Pretty happy with myself.
I don't live in the path of Irma, though we may get tornadoes from her. I pray for those who do and my heart bleeds for the ones that lose people and/or have to start over again.
