How was your weekend?

January 19, 2015

Mine began like this: Bloody Toered line
Sweet, eh?

Have some residual “reminders” of my two neurosurgeries…On occasion my left foot has drop foot – no message from brain to foot to pick foot up. I am fairly trained now to pick it up without message, but Friday it doubled over before I knew it. My toe just ripped across and all my body weight dropped on foot and toe without any preparation to carry it. I called my husband as I could not get the bleeding to stop, nor could I put any weight on foot. He got home and I was laying in the bed with a papertowel around my toe and a trail of blood from the kitchen to the pillow my foot lay on.

What a guy. He cleaned me up. Probably could have used a stitch or two, but he got it to stop and he bandaged it beautifully. He also bandaged me into a “splint” for my foot to stabilize it. I kept it elevated and he got ice – and he then insisted I lay on my back the entire weekend.

He knows how difficult it is to keep me down no matter what, but he was right. Bless his sweet heart. He did everything plus-plus-plus.

It is now Monday and any swelling is gone. I am still bandaged, but can put some weight on foot . (He made me use the walker I used after my surgery, all weekend.) He would have made a wonderful paramedic.

Was going to get x-ray, but it is so much better I am just going to keep on letting it heal for a couple of days, and I think it will be fine. Even the swelling from twisting my ankle is gone. Mostly just got black and blue and a bit of toe swelling now.

So there it is RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) and I am on the mend. He even cleaned our refrigerator, went grocery shopping, and did the laundry.
What a guy. I thank God for him every day!

My husband never knows what I will do next!

September 18, 2013

I guess I am a bit of a wild woman, and I LOVE having fun.  Sometimes I will do something “out of the ordinary” just for fun.  Doesn’t have to be much.  I went to a yard sale and bought this “green thing” for a quarter.  I put it on Michael’s motorcycle helmet in the garage, and never said a word

The first time he want into the garage he came in laughing and said, “I’m not wearing that on my helmet.”  That was exactly what I wanted…was to make him laugh.  Everyone needs an unexpected laugh now and then.  He loved it the night I came out of the office wearing a tiara.  I didn’t have to say anything and he just smiled and shook his head.

Do something just for fun today.  Not anything hurtful – that’s not fun.  Just something silly.  Have an extraordinary day!  It’s all in your hands now, and GOD BLESS YOU!

A Man’s favorite piece of clothing

August 9, 2010

This is my husband’s favorite piece of clothing. Every time he runs around the house with them on, I am really tempted to rip them off! However, I know better than that.

I did that one time with one of his tee shirts, and I heard about it for months! “It was soft”. “It was air conditioned.” “It was just broken in right.” “It was holy!”

Yes, he laughed, but inside he withered at my careless destruction. So these days when he sports his NEW favorite piece of clothing – I just look and am tantalized!

Oh, a deciding factor in leaving his clothing alone was when I wore one of my favorite pairs of jeans that had a few holes…I liked the way they fit…and he caught me by the one over my booty and rip! By-by jeans. Hello “Hands off the clothing” protocol.

Have a wonderful day!
