    Monday the 21st is going to be a mixed up day. The day starts with an eclipse. Here in the states, no one in Oregon is going to be able to get on the roads at all except During the eclipse. Where I live we will have about 60% coverage. I have a doc appt at about the time it starts but will be outside to see the almost full darkness. I will not be trying to see the sun at all.
    I am Arlene and Dr Mary Vernon says it best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaquSijXJkQ for me. I used to stand under my plum tree waiting for the fruit to ripen and fall, now I stand near a coconut tree.

    It is now Saturday and we are leaving very early on Sunday morning for the Sault Ste. Marie to see my doctor on Monday..
    We will be returning home late on Monday..
    I will be gone for the 2 days from here..
    I will let you know what the doctor said as far as my recovery goes from my new shoulder.. My physiotortureist says I am doing very good for only 8 weeks.. She is pleased with the progress so far.. The doctor has ordered X-Rays for Monday morning ...

    I'm not going away just yet, but on December 11th, I will be gone for one week as Annmarie is having an ankle replacement operation and she will be in hospital for the better part of the week.. I will be staying in a hotel for the week which is very close by to the hospital..
    When we return, I will have my hands full just taking care of her..
    I really can't say if I will have time to post on here, but I will try to keep you posted on her recovery and condition..
    She MUSN'T put any weight on her ankle for 6 weeks.. Knee scooter, wheel chair, walker to sit on and move about, and ME to help her do whatever she wants to do...

    Meantime, we are doing daytrips out of town to see different specialists and her pre-op which is coming up shortly..
    Eye doctor, heart doctor, x-rays, cat scans, diabetic doctor, blood tests, and the list goes on and on... She even wanted to have her teeth cleaned and checked before the surgery..

    I am getting the house ready for her.. Had a ramp built to get in the house from outside, got a transfer seat for the bathtub, bought a knee scooter, rented a walker with wheels and a large seat, moving around some furniture to allow her to be able to move about in her knee scooter and the items go on and on.. I will even remove the door to the main bathroom giving her full access to the entrance..

    Just a note to let you know what is going here.... Actually, never a dull moment..

    Gosh, Steve.... that is a lot of work. When I had my first hip replaced 16 years ago they said no weight for 6 weeks. Got good on crutches. Now they have you walking in the first few days. NOT Annmarie, though. I cannot even imagine an ankle replacement.

    No worries, you baby her and we will keep this place in order.

    Annmarie has an extreme time trying to handle crutches..
    She has a touch of arthritis in her hands and cannot put the weight of her body on her hands to use crutches..
    6 weeks with NO weight bearing will be a challenge...
    Even after the 6 weeks are over, she won't just get up and walk like nothing ever happened.. Physio for at least 6 months if not longer to get her back to walking properly again...
