You're ready to shine now!

Such a busy day.  Cancel Family Lunch.  Several calls to Kaiser.  Dr. Waterhouse is out of the office until the end of the month.  We finally got an appointment for 2:30pm for Physical Therapy for dad.  Tonight we have CERTS from 6:00pm to 9:30pm.  Spent all morning cleaning and cutting fruits and vegies, making salad and sandwiches.  Also watched two good movies on TCM with the Marx Brothers and Roy Rogers.  Beautiful day today.

Such a busy day.  I'm exhausted, but it was a good CERTS class.  The Physical Therapist gave dad some exercises to do, told him to ice, take pain pills and come back in one week.  Looks like the pain in his leg is not so much the back right now, as the hips.  Seems he has a LOT of arthritis in his hips.  He really couldn't tell us if he thought it would get better or not.  Every step is agonizing for dad.  Sometimes he cannot move the leg at all.  Sure hope it gets better every day.  But - One Day At A Time.  Sweet Dreams.
