I have been in Physical Therapy for the past month and a half. During this time they have been working on my back and hips. I have severe arthritis that I am working on keeping limber. The problem is about 4 weeks ago my “good knee” (the one I lead with going upstairs and down) crunched really loudly. I have babied it for awhile trying to see if I could get it back but it is not getting back to normal. So, after a doctor visit I need an x-ray of my knee and tibia to see if it is arthritis in my knee now (something new), a fractured tibia, or if the x-rays don’t show anything an MRI for a torn ligament. Just when one thing seems to get better another pops up. Getting old is tough!
But, there is so much goodness happening right now too. I can hear my son upstairs playing his Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) game. He created a one shot campaign for his birthday and is running it today. We are so happy. For so long he didn’t have birthday parties with friends. We did parties of family friends at baseball games or arcades. We took him on vacations for his birthdays for a party with us. But, now he has friends and last night we made deliveries to all 10 kids to drop off bottles of Sasparilla (root beer) and cupcakes. It was a western theme party so bandanas, sheriff’s badges, and cowboy boot mugs were included. I had so much fun with this. He had so much fun with this. It makes my heart happy to hear him having fun.
I just booked my daughter’s flights and hotel to Phoenix, Arizona this summer. She is going to dance in the Irish Dance Nationals this summer. She is so excited! This has been a goal of hers and they are doing Traditional Sets this summer so her dance teacher asked her if she wanted to go. Of course! She realizes this may be her only shot to dance at Nationals before leaving for college. We are gifting her the plane tickets and hotel for her birthday. So, excited for her.
So, lots of good things happening here. What good things are happening in your world?
