Thanksgiving Day, 2015

                                                           Thanksgiving day

My first day walking again after my long confinement of six weeks in bed. All of my leg muscles are showing signs of atrophy. I spent my day out of bed, with help from a caregiver. We managed to get the turkey in the oven ( it will be yummy! ). The pies are cooling, and I am excited to spend the evening with friends. Below are photos of myself and Bud. I am blessed to have a life with love in it, So to everyone I know and love, I am so thankful for you and everyone who loves me, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Coping With Confiment

I am finding that I am very much happier when I am active. But now that I have 2 more weeks to go I am mostly doing things that I NEVER do like watching a lot of TV in the day time. I always like to be outside for a big part of my day. And only watch TV for a few hours in  the evening, after being active all day and my brain is shutting down the TV comes on before I go to bed.
So today to cope with my confinement I followed my loving dog on his afternoon romp. Usually I have him on leash, today I held the camera. Here's a sample of his afternoon romp. While I am house bound my friend and neighbor takes Bud in the early am to romp. Bud is a lucky dog and I am grateful for my helpers and Bud lovers to keep my boy fit. I LOVE my play times with Bud. I will have my life back soon with a better foot thanks to a great surgeon, Dr Sima. Thanks to my people in my life who care enough to take their time. Thanks to everyone who makes my life happy and mostly thanks to Bud.

Bud My Therapy Dog

I had toe surgery 3 weeks ago and have not been able to walk on my right foot so my life has been very different. Normally I take Bud to the beach each early am for play time. One of my good friends each am comes over to get Bud to play at his beach and I can't thank my freind enough for helping Bud exercise. I am not able to be walking now and I have to wait for one of my helpers to come to get my day going. I am getting bored of laying around but I am doing what the doctor wants me to do which do nothing.
My birthday is here once again and am grateful for my good health and white hair on my head. At least I have hair, I tell myself.
My boy Bud keeps me smiling. Shown here doing what he does best. The cream cheese frosting was Bud's treat today.

Scarf Bud

Bud knows that summer is over and he wants to be ready for winter. Labs are originally from Newfoundland.  were the temperate is cold. The Labs are meant to swim in icy water. The fishermen used these dog to be with them in their boat and to swim to retrieve their fish nets. The dogs used their strong chest to break ice in the water.
Some how I don't think Bud would want to swim in that cold of water. He loves swimming in the bay where there never ice. Thankfully I say. I would not to live in cold, cold climate.
