A Brief Update

Hello All, it's been several weeks since I've posted and much has happened. My Meniere's went on for several days and then got better. That enabled me to use my ticket to fly to Idaho for a vacation with a family that has adopted me as a grandmother. Quite wonderful for me.

I stayed there 10 days and came home exhausted. It is so true that what one did when younger is no longer possible when one reaches her eighties. I rested for nearly a week, sleeping 9 to 10 hours each night.

Then the rain began here and an arthritic flare-up occurred in my back. When I had the back surgery in March 2017, he back surgeon told me that he could do nothing in the operation about my very serious arthritis. Thus, this flair-up wasn't unexpected. It lasted for an entire week with me keening and moaning and walking around like an old crone! Stiff like cardboard! Hardly able to bend over and feed the cats. Only today do I feel equal to getting things done in my home without pain.

During that time, I also got a virus that meant diarrhea and upset stomach plus the headaches. So this has been a difficult time. I do hope to return to my Sunday blogging in the next couple of weeks. I want to do my part to keep our blogging community enlivened with the stories of our lives.

I want to write AND I want to read about what is happening in your lives. I hope to catch up soon. Thank you for stopping by and checking on me.
