1. Macey finally got her sock!! Her compression sock. She got it almost two weeks ago. It just looks like a skin colored thigh high sock but it is very heavy and pretty scratchy. She wears it all day long and then has to take it off at night. Last Thursday night after dance she wanted to take it off and Mom said she would help her. Well guess what, Mom couldn't get it off, she got it clear down to her ankle and then Mom wasn't strong enough to pull it off. Why? Well, it is that tight and heavy, and mom is WEAK. Finally, Macey's momma got it off of her. Hopefully by summer Macey can have a lighter weighted one. It seems to be helping a little bit. I think it will just maintain where she is at.
WE CAN'T GET ANY PICTURES TO LOAD HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THAT PROBLEM?
2. Grandma started her radiation treatments this week. She will do 33 sessions five days a week. At first she was really nervous but she has had two and told mom last night she is not so anxious now. The Cancer center she goes to are very kind to her, and try to make her as comfortable as possible. She will go back up to Des Moines this month for her checkup with the doc who did her surgery etc. We are praying everything is going just fine. So we figure by the time spring arrives she will be done and on her way to better health. She has even cooked a few meals for Grandpa which is a good sign.
3. Our dad goes on Friday back up to the University to have a MRI on his shoulder and arm area. Ever since the accident he has not been able to move it to the side, or use it to put his arm in a sleeve etc. without it spasming and locking up. For some reason the doc's were not on the ball about it until last month when they xrayed to make sure he did not have a broken shoulder bone, which he did not. We are hoping his new arm doc is very smart and can give us some answers. In two more weeks he sees his back doc. Yesterday he went to PT and they said they are going to tell Workmans' Comp that he does not need to come back because they just cannot help him without knowing what they are working with. They said his body is pretty messed up, and they really don't know what to do. So we are anxiously awaiting Friday....I wonder if our dad knows a MRI is in a tube that is sorta tight........ugh....................
So that is it folks, we are moving along, in the right direction.........thank you all for being right there beside us.
Someone asked yesterday why we call that cat "weiner" well its because mom and dad used to call her the Halloween cat when she would stop by our house....somehow it has turned into this name.???
Have a great Wed.
