Tonight I have been able to sit up for 4 hours now, and the pain is not too bad; so I thought I could write a quick update.
First, thanks for all the emails, comments, and phone calls, I can't tell you how much I appreciate that.
Second, a quick update: No, I do not yet have an appointment with a neurologist. Yes, I did get an order today for physical therapy - although I AM concerned that my doctor stated, "therapy ONLY for the shoulder & arm - NOT on the neck..."
Third, I have come to realize a few things: -I am lucky to be able to find comfortable positions, because I know there are many out there who never do... -I have a great husband - nuf said. -I also have great friends, family and BOSSES. -I take really good "ground level" photography when I have nothing else to do all day, and I am glad for my two entertaining hummingbird feeders.
I think I'm on my way back...
Oh...And a note about the sizes of "my" hummingbirds: The red feeder base at the bottom of the feeder is only 1-1/2 inches high... (About 4 cm).
And I have escorted three of those little buggers out of my house today!
When I started this blog in May 2007, it was for the sole purpose of staying in touch with friends and family while we traveled to Europe for three months. I am still staying in touch. "Traveller's Joy" clematis vitalba: Wildflower found throughout southwest Europe/Africa. Used for medicinal purposes and found "climbing and covering" the roadsides of Europe.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
