A Quick Post

I'm I'm free! Just a very quick post to let everyone know that I got the big purple cast off today. I now am wearing a post op. boot. I can take it off to bathe and sleep. The break is healing nicely. I go back to the orthopaedic surgeon in a month. That just goes to show that eating calcium rich food and drinking milk ...along with a good calcium supplement does help. The surgeon was impressed that it was healing so quickly. I still am hobbling around but this boot is a lot more comfortable than the "purple thang" that I was!

I will leave you with  a couple  pics of my little Jak. I did not keep him today and sure missed him. I did enjoy my nap though. I put on some laundry and passed out. He will be here in the morning very early.

Jak never lets you get a natural picture of him. He always makes a face or yells. That's just Jak!

Have a great day tomorrow! Many Blessing, Karen

Jak is just very excited when you point a camera at him. He's doing what he thinks he should do!!
So glad you are FREE!! I know how Tom felt when he got his cast off.
I am happy for you!!! You are doing a good job taking care of yourself.
God bless, Fern

How is the healing coming along???
What are you doing with your days except baby sitting? Can you get any sewing done? Are you a good house keeper? I am not a good house keeper at all!!!!!
Lets learn more about each other.

Thanks for your visit!! Yes that was a bad storm yesterday!! Thank-goodness we did not get any down burst!! Years ago we did. Had 4 trees come down. None on the house tho- thank the Lord!! That is a miracle when things do NOT fall on the house. We have had so many mircales!! We have a lot of trees right close to the house on all sides. We have had a bad hurricane in 85, tornado in 98 and down bursts lots of other times. Lots of mircales!!!
Hugs, Fern

Hi Karen, Thanks for your visit.
It has been a full day and I am getting ready it hang it up.

Hi sweet friend, thanks for coming to see me!!! I love your visits!!!
Today was even a little warmer. 66 degrees. Another sunny day. We walked 5 times today. We are suppose to be 68 tomorrow and rain over night and into Saturday, then cold again. It is winter and when you have pretty days it is easy to forget!! We have Daffodils coming up, so it isn't just the people that forget. The birds want winter to be over too.
Big hugs, Fern

Hi Karen,
Thank-you for your flattering words. The boys liked me, than men like me!!! When I found Tom and he liked me and we got together then I never noticed the men falling all over themselves to get my attention!! Tom did and he would tell me. In five days Tom and I will celebrate an anniversary of sorts!!!
Hope you have a good week, Fern

Hi Karen, It was cold for you this morning. I am so glad I live in Florida. This year was so cold we didn't think we lived there, but we did. It was not the mornal winter.
It would be nice if you would blog!!! Then when we came to your blog we would have something new to read. Honey I know your are very busy!!!!! But maybe just a short one. Even no pictures would be ok. OK??
Hugs, Fern

Hi Karen,
It is already 99 degrees and it is only 1 pm. It is going to be another HOT one!!! When you looked at tv yesterday you would think we had some rain but we didn't!!! I have been looking for rain for 2 weeks. When it is this hot and no rain everything is getting hurt!!!!
I can't remember it being so hot for so long without any rain!! Other people are getting some rain but not us!! Sorry I am complaining but it is hard to think of other things when it is so hot 24 hrs a day. Our low last night was 80.
Come and see me later. If blogger will load pivtures I 'll put my G-daughter's pup on.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Hi Karan,

XXOO, Fern

Happy 4th to you and yours!!!! It sounds like you have a plan!! You are going to be with one you love!!! We have no big plans. Just enjoy each other and bbQ something good. My oldest son said that they wanted to come over but $$ was a problem!! So that is how it stands....
Happy 4th!! Fern

That's just boys I think, lol He is a cutie and for some reason all little boys do this when they are getting their picture taken. You have a right to be proud. Glad your cast is gone, you are getting there!
