I am able to do a little more each day after just 4 weeks out of the shoulder surgery. I am thankful for the ORTHO LAZER treatments I did and with just 6 visits it got me through the really bad pain. You must locate one if you have knee or shoulder surgery. Visits were not cheap for me as Medicare has yet to authorize its use, but I will appeal that I did not need more than 20 opioids before switching to an NSAID and Tylenol.
Yesterday I had PT as I do 2x’s a week (hate just one stretch she does, the one bent at the elbow and she pushes down. OUCH but I can do so much more most days so I will stay the course.
Yesterday I came home and got ready for a potential storm I say potential as most miss us leaving the soil dry and me yanking a hose around to water just the food gardens.
Knowing I was looking at potential surgery back in February I decided to just plant the basics I will eat daily, and it worked out perfectly. I planted just enough Snow and Sugar Snap peas for some salads and soups and cleaned out the box.
Two days ago, I dug out my package of seeds I was given by the Hopkinton Historical Society. I signed up before I was hurt for a project with the Abenaki Indians here in NH to grow some food and save seeds for them. I was given 5 Skunk Beans, 5 Cranberry Beans and 3 Crookneck Squash seeds to do my part. They are all in now and cannot wait to see how they grow. I will eat a few beans from each plant but mostly bring them fresh to their farmers market or let them dry in place, shell them and bring them when the squash is ready to harvest.
I have been painting like the title states mind you they are small but all for sale.
Grateful to be retired and have no pressure put upon me to do more than I can.
Thankful for this place I call home no matter the cost to me and each day she blesses me with gifts for giving back to the wildlife.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy your weekend when it gets here.
