Good morning! Today is "I like Thursdays" when we fill the internet with positive posts! Hosted by LeeAnna, find entertaining and happy energy by visiting her and the other bloggers here.
Today's theme is making lemonade out of lemons!
Brad had his two week post surgery appointment this week. The good news is that he is healing exactly as expected (slowly). The really good thing that is that we met with the Physician's Assistant and she answered a lot more of our questions.
Turns out that hubby has the worse kind of disk herniation and that the recovery is a minimal of 3 months. Or longer? Couple the injury with the fact that it took months before the hospital system/insurance companies allowed him to have the surgery and you have a long convalescence.
This is actually good news; we know to relax now and just take it as it comes. But here is what we are SUPER grateful for: He got the surgery before the office closed (they expect that will happen and even his next post-op appointment is scheduled for a phone consultation). My husband is safe and home during what surely will be the worse covid surge.
Baby it's cold outside!
I'm grateful for silk underwear! If you don't have them and have to walk your dog frequently like I do or if you just like walking, I highly recommend them! They are like long underwear but thin as silk and boy do they keep you warm!
This is Kerry, my mom's new puppy. Brad and I call her the Tazmanian Devil or Taz for short. So the good news is that Scout likes playing with her..for about 10 minutes. When Scout has had enough, she sits down and while the puppy is jumping all over her, you can tell that look on Scout's face means, "Please make it stop." 😂
Kerry has a virus and is now quarantined as well. She'll be fine. The good news? Scout didn't catch it. The other good news? I figured out what to get my mother and her new puppy for Christmas:
A hand held carpet stain eraser made just for pets!😂😂😂😂
I already had it delivered to my mother and she was really appreciative of it!
So this past week I mostly just kept hearing the song, "Always look on the bright side of life..." in my head. I hope you are keeping your sense of humor too!
I hope you are all well, wearing your masks and staying safe!
Have a great weekend!
