Tuesday Thoughts

Rick goes to see his surgeon tomorrow.  He is still in a great deal of pain, but his mobility is amazing.
He no longer has to use a walker, and only has to use a cane in the yard or away from home.

It is astounding that a week ago they did the knee replacement and now his leg is straight and he is walking around.  There are some things about modern medicine that are truly miraculous.

I went back to work yesterday.  I keep waiting on my fatigue to subside, maybe by the weekend.

Our facility is at pretty much full capacity right.  Lots of new faces coming to yoga and several saying goodbye.  With out women today I did a class on remembering to love and honor yourself.
As always there are tears when I teach this class.  I look at their faces  as I teach and wonder if some of them have ever loved themselves.  I try to teach them how.

I think I hear my bed calling me.  We have to be in Birmingham early in the morning.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
Don't forget to be kind.


  1. Hope you feel better in the morning Jilda. A big week and its only Wednesday tomorrow.
    Hugs and Love

  2. Replacement knee surgeries are quite successful procedures nowadays. PT is tough, but it'll pass. The hard thing, and perhaps the most important one, however, is 'keeping an eye' on body weight.In many cases, doing that prevents surgery, but people tend to take the short way of meds and steroids. So, unfortunately, they end up doing both, surgery and diet.

  3. Glad Rick is doing so much so soon. You may be tired out, but you are making such a difference in the lives of others Hope today's trip brings good news and you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. You do change lives, Jilda.

    Glad that Rick is moving along.
