Just to let you know what is going on in my world -
My Mom is doing a lot better. My sister took her out to get her hair done, then her newest great-grandbaby stopped in for lunch, and my bil took her for a drive.
Not all in the same day, but all in the same week.
She is alone in the house, but will be moving to a senior's residence next month, after they finish building it. She has care workers coming in often. She cracked her pelvis in 5 places, and a rib, in the accident last June.
And I am starting school tomorrow. (Today is a holiday in Canada.) I know I told you all about it last winter when the process was starting, but there have been delays, and more delays.
They still have not approved my funding, and I am having terrible anxiety attacks about it all.
But that will pass, right?
I am taking dental assisting, so I will be the person handing the dentist tools and wielding the vacuum next time you need a filling.
I don't remember if I told you about Jake's knee giving out on him, about the same time I had sciatica. I had to carry him home from a couple of walks before he quit using that leg. But I seem to be almost back to normal (a bit of a limp), and he is doing really well, putting most of his weight on that leg again, and going for walks under mile and a half again. He says he is ready to chase rabbits, but he is a whippet and born to chase.
So all is well in my world.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers over the months.
