And now back to our regularly scheduled program...

Donny's out of the hospital. My hours at work have been cut back again. Life is returning to normal. Or our closest possible imitation.

Next week my grandma is having knee replacement surgery. She finally lost all the weight that the doctor wanted gone and so she's been cleared for surgery. I almost typed cleared for takeoff. Can you tell that I'm tired?

My mom is starting the process for gastric bypass surgery. Her doctor asked for a personal favor from the surgeon to get him to take her on even though he doesn't take her insurance. Things have gotten bad with her. Her legs are having a hard time holding her, so she falls a lot. Her bones are getting real brittle, so she breaks something every time she falls. Her doctor wanted her in a wheelchair, but she refuses to let it go that far. So they've compromised, she uses a walker, and she's getting the surgery.

So life goes on. All in all I'd say that things are good here. I hope that all is well with all of you.

yeah, I am going back to normal, too. I start work again Monday. I guess my "vacation" is over. Finished PT today, too, for all the good that did me. I hope things go well for your Mom and Grandma, and Donny, of course.
