Hi all. As you know, I have been depressed, having a hard time with the pain, and with being taken over by aliens invading my body and not leaving very much room for me. Its been really tough.
The doctor prescribed Lycria for me last week. 75 mgs to be taken at bed time.
OH MY OH MY My constant “stinging”, “itching” all but went away. I had told my doctor the week before that there was not one single moment that I didn’t think about the disease because I was constantly reminded.
Well believe it or not, I have had several slots of time now pass where I wasnt completely absorbed in DD.
I went to my sons house, to babysit my three granddaughters while their mom went to the oldest grandsons school to help out in the classroom.
I had the MOST fun I have had in years !!! I had bought each grandbaby a little coloring book that also had stickers and “tattos” in it. We colored pictures. We stuck stickers on each other. I put their tattos on them whereever they wanted - it was so fun.
And then I put a couple of fake tatoos on me. A lil butterfly just peeking over my cleavage. And for my trashed knee, I put a flower at the upper end of the scar, so it looked like the scar was the stem of the flower.
We had fun fun fun. The little baby came to me on her own for the first time. She is so cute, she knows you are going to lift her up to your lap backwards, so she backs in to be picked up. HOW CUTE !!
My son and his wife received a Wii system for Christmas. So, my son and I “went” bowling. When he was growing up, I worked for a bowling alley making flyers for different functions, and they traded me free bowling. There was often times when my husband and I would go down and throw 10 games apiece.
Its been a long while since I bowled. BUT with this, all you do is hold the remote up, then drop your hand in the action you would if bowling. WHAT A BLAST !! It was so much fun, it really does a pretty good job of simulating bowling. When I got home, my right arm felt like a mass of lumps and bumps. I didnt know if that light activity just brought more to the surface, or made new ones, but I really didn’t care.
My grandson said (he’s five) when you can bowl, you can feel young again.
He was sOOOOOOOOOOOOO right. Gosh, It was a blast.
Then it was time to bring out hungry hungry hipppo. We played a few games of that, screaming and yelling and trying to chomp white marbles.
Next it was Cootie Bug. We rolled for parts, and the race was on for who built the fastest cootie bug.
Oh those sweet little hearts just gave me hope and life. We turned on animal planet, ordered some pizza, and had dinner.
Then their mom and dad came home, and my YaYa job for the day was done. Thats what they call me, I am their YaYa.
YaYa came home tired, but ever so uplifted emtionally. Slept for two days but it was worth every minute.
It gave me an idea for Monday,when I go to see my knee doctor. He is a really fun person. I am going to get some washable markers and decorate my knee before I go in. I will put a nice big flower head at the top, and then color the scar green all the way down and put a leaf here and there.
I bet he makes his girl take a picture of it. I am looking forward to our laughing together.
Well its almost 3 AM and I am tired not, but heres hoping and praying you all have a day soon that you will want to hold on to too.
