Seeing Shirley here! I've been so worried.
All the flowers. All along my back fence daffodils are in full bloom as well as my pots of pansies. The neighbors Japanese magnolia is gorgeous and the park across the street is solid white from all the Bradford Pears in bloom. My lawn is also getting green.
Although my sister has been back in the hospital two more times with pneumonia coming back, she is home now and feeling better right now. Still on oxygen but they are hopeful that the scar tissue will heal enough that she can get off of it again.
Although my brother got a flu shot this year he got flu. As bad as it was the doctor told him he probably wouldn't have made it had he not gotten the shot. It turned into pneumonia too. He is finally on the mend too.
Being able to walk this week. They finally decided that I have stenosis of the spine caused by a genetic blip in my family that causes some of us to grow extra bone. They found a lot of inflammation in my spine/discs that they think was caused by the medication I was on for the staph infection I got at the hospital causing it to move inward, it had compressed a nerve so badly that I lost feeling and use of my lower extremities and also one compressed in my upper back so that I was having a hard time using my hands/arms, they flopped a lot. They put me on steroids and manipulated it enough that I started getting feeling and some use again. They plan on doing surgery to grind the bone inside the spinal canal off and stabilize any weak discs. I am also grateful that it waited until I am 63 to start. My brother started having this problem in his early 30's. Surgery is much less horrific now than it was then and you can usually go home in days, not weeks.
Steven Hawking. A good inspiration on days that I felt sorry for myself.
