I'm very sorry to hear about your hip...... I hope nothing is broken/fractured. At our age, our sons ought to be cleaning our patios, instead of the other way around....... lol
I hope I've been able to help you some. I'm always here to do what I can. Take care and good luck with that hip.
I'm so sorry that you have been through so much trauma with all your health issues. I totally understand, and it is so hard to make and keep friends when you cant get out of the house much, and when you don't have the energy for commitments. I use to have friends, I was the bubbly happy one. But I've become a bit of a recluse, staying home and only visiting family who understand my dilemma in life. So I'm happy to have made some friends here.
I guess the grass always looks better on the other side, right. I guess I should stay in Canada, close to my kids. And ok health care! then when and if my husband retires we can go on an adventure and maybe rent a place in the sun during the winter. I've heard that a lot of Canadians spend the winter in Arizona, escaping the snow and ice.
You deserve a big bear hug!
Thanks Deb, I am really sick today :(
I have some sort of sinus/sore throat virus so I feel like I have the flu.
I feel like such a big baby when I get sick, because I'm already on the edge with my back pain, so when I get something else
It pushes me over the edge and I can't cope. I was so disappointed because my husband had today off work, we were going to go shopping but that was cut short. And I rarely get to spend time with him since he travels a lot
Wow, I sound so miserable!!! One good thing is that my daughter is moving home April 18th, she is great company and helps me so much.
How are you doing, hopefully better than me. Take care, Sue
