HELLO!........I'M AT HOME!

JIMMY CAME HOME YESTERDAY, AND TOOK ME TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM RIGHT AWAY.  WE ARE THANKFUL HE GOT AN EMERGENCEY PASS FROM HOPE HALL, TO COME HOME TO TAKE ME TO THE ER, SINCE MY RIGHT LEG HAD NOT GOTTEN ANY BETTER.

I AM SO HAPPY THAT MY HUSBAND WAS ABLE TO TAKE ME THERE.YOU HAVE NO IDEA.  WHEN JIMMY IS WITH ME, LIFE SEEMS HAPPIER, AND LIGHTER. 

HE ARRIVED AT HOME A LITTLR AFTER 8 AM, AND BY 9:30 AM OR SO, WE WERE AT THE ER.

THEY TOOK 6 VIALS OF BLOOD FROM ME AND TOOK X-RAYS OF MY RIGHT FOOT.  THE DOCTOR WAS A WONDERFUL MAN....SO PLEASANT, SO UNDERSTANDING, AND A BLESSING TO BE WITH!

THE X-RAY SHOWED SOME SOFT TISSUE SWELLING OF THE RIGHT FOOT, IN THE HEEL AREA, AND A
"HEEL SPUR."

I EXPLAINED TO THE DOCTOR THAT MY ENTIRE LEG IS VERY NUMB, AND HURTING, AND IT SEELS  LIKE I KEEP GETTING THROWN OFF BALANCE WHEN WALKING....AS IF TO FALL.

HE KEPT ME ON ANTIBIOTICS, AS THERE WAS SOME INFECTION THERE IN THE LEG, WITH A LOW GRADE TEMP.  THE LEG IS STILL SWOLLEN, AND I HAVE TROUBLE PUTTING PRESSURE ON IT WHILE WALKING.

HE TOLD ME IT WAS GOOD I CAME TO THE ER, AS BEING A DIABETIC I HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL FOR ANYTHING WITH THE FEET/LEGS, AS I HAD THE AMPUTATION OF THE TOE OF THE OTHER LEG BEFORE.

HE SAID IF I SEE ANY FUTHER REDNESS OR SWELLING, OR SPREADING UP MY LEG, I AM TO COME BACK TO THE HOSPITAL.

SO, JIMMY AND I WERE VERY HAPPY , THAT I DID NOT HAVE TO BE ADMITTED FOR E IV ANTIBIOTICS.

HOWEVER, WOULDN;'T YOU KNOW IT, I FELL LATER ON THAT DAY!

WHAT HAPPENED WAS THAT AS JIMMY WAS LEAVING TO GO BACK TO HOPE HALL, HE CLOSED THE DOOR, AND WALKED OUT, AS USUAL.  THEN , PRINCE AND I ALWAYS WALK TO THE BEDROOM WINDOW TO WAVE GOOD-BYE TO HIM.  PRINCE WAS SO EXCITED , HE PUSHED AGAINST MY LEFET LEG, AND SENT ME FLYING FORWARD, FACE DOWN ON THE FLOOR.  I SCREAMED OUT TO JIMMY, AS HE WAS WALKING ACROSS THE LAWN.  HE RAN BACK TO THE WINDOW, AND COULD NOT COME BACK IN THE HOUSE, BECAUSE THE DOOR WAS LOCKED, AND HE HAD NO KEY.

SO, HE TALKED TO ME THROUGH THE WINDOW.  HE WAS READY TO TAKE THE SCREEN DOWN, AND CLIMB THROUGH THE WINDOW.  FORTUNATELY I WAS ABLE TO PULL MYSELF UP.  I THEN WALKED TO THE FRONT DOOR, AND HE CHECKED MY KNEES AND LEGS.  EVERYTHING WAS OK, BUT I WAS SHAKEN UP, AND THE RIGHT LEG HURTS MORE THAN EVER TODAY, AND IS QUITE SWOLLEN.

SO, NOW I AM MANAGING TO GET AROUND THE HOUSE, USING MY CANE AND WHEELCHAIR...................WHAT CAN I SAY!.....................IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING,

DESPITE EVERYTHING, JIMMY AND I HAD A GREAT DAY!  HE IS A WONDERFUL MAN AND HUSBAND.....THAT IS ALL I CAN SAY................HE TOOK CARE OF ME ALL DAY, AND HE SAYS HE JUST LOVES TO DO IT!.....IT'S INCREDIBLE TO FIND AN ASPECT IN A MAN LIKE THAT!

HE COOKED ROASTED PAPRIKA CHICKEN THIGHS, ALONG WITH A DELICIOUS DISH OF SAUTEED POTATOES, WITH ONIONS AND MUSHROOMS.............I JUST LOVED IT!

I HAD A HUGE PITCHER OF CRYSTAL LIGHT ICED TEA FOR HIM, WHICH HE LOVES, AND I ALSO MADE SOME COFFEE..................WHICH HE LOVES HOW I MAKE THE COFFEE!

HE HAD ME REST ALL DAY, AND GAVE ME MASSAGES THROUGHOUT THE DAY..................

HE HAD BOUGHT ME A BEAUTIFUL BOUQUET OF FLOWERS, AND A BIRTHDAY BARBIE DOLL, AS I COLLECT BARBIE DOLLS, AND JULY 1ST IS MY BIRTHDAY.

WE WATCHED SOME SHOWS ON TV TOGETHER, AND OF COURSE LAID IN EACH OTHER;S ARMS A GOOD PART OF THE DAY!

JIMMY AND I ARE LIKE A CHEMICAL REACTION, WHEN TOGETHER................WE HAVE A LOT OF ENERGY BETWEEN US...............A LOT OF LOVE FLOWING , AND PEOPLE ALWAYS SEE THAT IN US.................WE OURSELVES FEEL THAT WHEN TOGETHER, AND IT IS AMAZING............

WE ARE ALWAYS HAPPY PEOPLE, TALKING, DISCUSSING THINGS..............LAUGHING.............AND SIMPLY FLOWING THROUGH LIFE!

ALTHOUGH WE ALL HAVE SOME OBSTACLES IN LIFE, AS WE ARE HUMAN, WE MUST LEARN TO FLOW THROUGH IT, IN ORDER TO MAKE LIFE'S JOURNEY A PLEASANT ONE, AND PRODUCTIVE ONE.

AND AFTER JIMMY LEFT, I WENT INTO THE KITCHEN.  EVERYTHING WAS SPOTLESS!................ALL DISHES WASHED, GARBAGE OUT.HE EVEN WASHED THE KITCHEN TOWELS!......................WHAT A HUSBAND!..........EH!.....I LOVE HIM SO!

..............................................FRAN

Awwwww, I'm so glad Jimmy came home to take you to the ER, and I'm especially glad you were'nt admitted. Now try to rest as much as you can so that leg does'nt swell on you anymore then it already has. It's so great that you have a husband who loves you so much and is so devoting. Your truely blessed, and so is he to have a wife who loves and adores him as much as you do. I hope you heal quickly. Have a great day. ((((Hugs))))
