Wow! The last two weeks have been so hectic! Mostly good, some sad, but completely hectic. First our daughter and her family lost one of their dogs, Homer. He was a Korean meat dog that she saved from becoming food.
He was an important part of our family, and they are really struggling, especially our daughter because she saw it happen. He was hit by a car in a parking lot at one of Austin's many trails.
Shortly after that, we went to Austin to help them move into their new home, and our precious grandbaby started walking about the same time. She's going to keep them on their toes.
After returning, I had to take mom to the Dr. She is still having issues with the wounds on her leg and hip which they think is a rare disease called Pyoderma Gangrenosum. The Dr. said they may never go away. We will just hope to get them to a manageable level. And her Alzheimer's is getting more noticeable.

And I have a scrapbook retreat coming up this weekend (another 4 hours in the car each way) that I have got to pack and organize for, but what is going to make it more difficult is I have a broken finger. It happened the day we went up to Austin. When we got back a few days later, I had it x-rayed. It was a small distal phalangeal fracture. But... I'm hard-headed and wasn't wearing my splint, and I injured it worse. Now I have a mallet fracture. The bone broke where the tendon attaches. This isn't my hand, but it looks exactly like this but more swollen. And it hurts!
I have to wear a splint 24/7 for six weeks to see if it heals. This is going to make scrapbooking more difficult, but I'm not giving up! And all this is happening while starting a new medication for which I seem to have most, if not all, of the possible side effects!
|This is true more than ever now! Fingers, shoulders, eyes, aches and pains!|

Have a great week!
