Don't You Just Love Willy Nelson...

On the road again.. can't wait to get on the road again.

Not really. I don't like traveling as much as I have the last month. I'm back in Ft. Worth again. My s.i.l. had back surgery a week ago yesterday and on Thursday my baby brother e-mailed me and asked if I could come down and help for a few days.

GiGi (my s.i.l.) was to get out of the hospital on Friday and he was scheduled to work Saturday and Sunday. So I packed a bag on Friday and drove down.

To make a long story very short... it's Tuesday and we are hoping she will be able to come home today. Physical therapy had orders to ambulate her only. That means simply get her up and help her to walk.

Well, they had not read the orders properly and had her doing lumbar exercises. She told the p.t. person that it hurt to do the exercises and, of course, they said to just try a little. Being the good patient she tried... and now is paying the price.

So I've beeen spending a lot of time at the hospital, away from the computer. My baby Bro is off today, but he had a meeting at the hospital at noon-time, so after the meeting he is going to bring her home, if her doc okays it.

I got to stay at the house and, after a much longer time away than I'm comfortable with, I am back on the computer. I miss posting and I miss checking up on everybody. I feel that my social life has so been compromised.

So I'll be going visiting today to see what I've missed. Hopefully, you all have been having way more fun than me.

so glad to hear that you are o.k., best wishes for your GiGi's recovery. I've heard back surgery can be tricky but now days it seems more successful. Have a safe trip 'home' and talk to you soon ;)

Speedy recovery for GiGi's back surgery. (I have had a couple of those and they sure have come along way with the surgery's I felt like a new person each time)
I have good friends in the Ft. Worth area. Family lived in Plano for 15 years.

I'm glad your back. I've missed you!
I hope all goes well with Gigi!
Be thankful that you are able to help others. Better that than the other way around!

God Bless~

Hoep your SIL continues to make progess. Gotta love when hospitals read the orders wrong!!

Oh I want that wagon wheel, would you throw it in the car on your way back please?!

Man I can not believe they would screw something like that up at the hospital. Seems like they should have known.....hummm? My aunt had hip replacement surgery and they screwed her up too. Now she has to have another one! Sure makes you wonder.

Ok, you hurry and get back home and lets get some pictures in the next few weeks scheduled for you and them babies! Be safe coming home ok?
