Still truckin'

It was a good day today. Game Design Merit Badge class wore me out, but we had fun. Most of all, I appreciated spending that time with Anna and Brian as my co-counselors. After the MB class was over, I came home and took a good nap. Deanne made a great supper. And then, while Anna and Brian baked muffins and Daniel and James kibbitzed back and forth between the kitchen and Deanne on her computer, while Zach did his stuff online, I took a shower and dressed my ankles and feet.

I've had to change my personal care schedule around. Late afternoon or early evening is the best time for me to concentrate on changing dressings. It's a complicated process, but I'm getting the hang of it. The wounds are looking better, I think, though no doubt there's a long way to go yet. The big thing is to be able to normatize as much as I can, so I can go places and get things done and not be laid up all the time.

Stressful as things are on weekends, I enjoy having my whole family here. Zach comes for the weekend to clean, and plays patiently with the cubs. Brian is fun to have here, too. Anna has come a long way towards de-stressing; she's even beginning to write stories again. All of us are helping each other through all the stuff each one has to deal with. It's what family is supposed to be for.

I am greatly blessed.
