It is me again--a couple of days later, and hopefully somewhat stronger. My sister-in-law, Nancy, left...and I have to say I miss the extra pampering she gave to me. Spence just took me out on the treadmill, and I walked (very slow speed) for a big 5 minutes! Yesterday I walked to the end of my street...and got to see some of my neighbors. Today was somewhat rainy and cold,and I really don't want to get sick...so I stayed inside.
Can you believe this? I ate some lasagne, some bread, and some salad tonight. WOW--is that ever progress!! I stilll eat fairly small amounts, and am reminded to eat them very slowly...but it is wonderful to eat REAL food. (the orange jello and chocolate pudding in the hospital don't really count as food!) Both Brady and Kelsey gave us a concert tonight (that was our family night)--Kelsey on the piano and Brady on the guitar. It was very relaxing and nice.
My friend, Eileen Allred, came over to stay with me this morning. We are still a little nervous about me staying alone, but actually I can do it just fine. Eileen has been a tremendous support to me during this whole time, and has helped me often.
I am going to include some pictures for you. I know several of you have seen my new look through Facebook...but for those of you who don't have Facebook, you can see the new me. I am also going to include a picture of the scar on my neck--it is amazing how little you can really see it, and it is healing well. So here are some pictures for you to see.So that's the latest from here--hope you are all doing well. Love you lots, Louise
