I keep those alerts disabled, religiously. I did get some recently on a landline(!). Those were for the infamous Water Crisis, which I have given up talking about due to the flood of plot twists and drama. At least now I’m in a different town...

Getting tired of flight delays. 15 minutes here, 45 minutes there. Doesn't seem to matter which airline. Only 1 of last 6 flights I've taken has been on time.

I'm tired of not being able to walk.

yes, yes, I know I made it worse, by taking pain pills and walking on it for 4 days after it happened. . but sheeh, I'm ready to be walking without a cane already dang it!

^ Geez Bert that's awful for you. It does make me ask you how the arm is, now?
Since you pulled something during our first Dragster ride? Hope it's well now,
so you can cope with "what's new in pain", lol.

Sending good healing thoughts to and for you. :angel:

thanks Bill,

yeah, that was a rotator cuff tear, and officially diagnosed as "Frozen Shoulder"
I'm still not 100%, and might never be on that. but just over a year later, about 85% movement back in that shoulder/arm.


THIS fun one is a severely bruised Quadriceps muscles and slight tear in my right leg. Staying off it for the last 10 days or so, has greatly improved it. . . at least I can walk now.

I've probably got 65-70% of the movement back (tho still can't really bend my knee very far due to the strain on the muscle), but at least all the swelling has gone down due to a week + of elevation, Ice, and Ibuprofen.

starting to do very slight PT this week to try to get the elasticity back in the muscle, but it's been improving every day, so that's good.

My thoughts are going out to those in India, who have experienced the worst flooding in a century.
Over 300+ have been lost to the floods, and around 70-80,000 separated from their homes, now lost to the floods.

P.S. This isn't exactly the thread I wanted to put this in. But it's one of those "where do I put it?" kind of posts.
And I really don't wanted to see a "Sadness Thread" in this site. That would be too depressing for anyone to read.

Our cat caught a baby mouse, I got it away from her, but the only thing I/we
can do right now, is keep it safe from Stella, and let it pass away in peace. :(

EDIT!!! Mousie's still alive!!! I got some soy milk powder to whip up a bit of
nourishment for it, and hope it gets better from today.

:smile:
