Today I had my first really big day out of the house. First we went to the Crawford Jr. wrestling match. It was so exciting for us, Austin had his first pin and then he had his first 1st. place. And he did it with no tears, he just tucked in and wrestled. I was very proud of all of the Crawford kids, they did so well. I got to watch so many of our old day care kids.......when did they grow up so fast? Anyway they all did such a good job. I will try to get some photos posted of some of the matches. After the tournament I went to Melissa Siek's baby shower and then walked home from downtown. I wasn't done yet because Jeff and I went to the Frontier for Skip Chubb's going away party. I got to see a lot of people I hadn't seen in a long time. It was a great day!

I Took My Camera For A Walk Today...

I guess you could call this pure boredom but it was the most fun I have had in weeks. I took the camera with me and snapped a few pictures on my walk. The day is beautiful, the colors are awesome. I wore a coat and didn't need it. I think spring is one its way!!

5 Blocks - feels like a Milestone!

Today I made it 5 blocks.I walk 4 times a day and each time I try to go just a little further. Funny how that sounds, there was a time not so long ago, I walked 6 miles a day. However, I feel more satisfaction from those 5 blocks than from any of my other walks. The road to recovery is coming.....I can feel it.

I'm Back!!

Hi Everyone,
I am so excited that I can sit for more than a few seconds at the computer. I have missed reading the blogs and seeing how everyone is doing. My back is doing great. I won't lie, it was a tough surgery, and not for the faint at heart present I am pretty much pain free. WooHoo!! I am still off from work until March, and still can not bend, stoop or lift. In 2 1/2 months they will x-ray my back to see how the graft has done but my Dr. sounds positive and if I mind my p's and q's the graft should be good.
Things I have learned from my surgery.
1. My daughter is an amazing, compassionate, caring woman and she IS my hero!
2. That my friends are the "BEST" of Best Friends
3. That I need to be a better friend.
4. That I need to respect the word "major" when talking about surgery
5. That Jeff knows how to cook, well at least soup and sandwiches! And, can run the dishwasher & wash clothes!!
6. That while on pain meds, no one should tell me something and think I will remember it! (Sorry Jeff & Damion)
7. That being able to put on socks is a blessing.
8. To pray the Rosary! Thank you Damion and Daunee' - your faith is strong and catching.
9. That the Wilson's are very thoughtful
10. That God always has the answers for me.....I just need to listen
11. That yesterday I could walk 2 blocks and today it was 3!
