Other than that, things are going pretty well. Riley is doing well and loving all the sitting and cuddling. I have been taking it really easy - only going out when necessary. But I have had to stop driving. I even got rid of my car because it needed a new $300 Florida tag, and a fortune to fix the alternator, more than a pensioner can afford.
Giving the car up was the hardest thing to do, but I have great neighbors who are willing to take me to the few places I need to visit. I am hating to have to admit that I am old now. Remember from a very bad illness years ago, I was told I had aged my body by ten years. I am feeling that now.
For a while after the fall, I was using a walker a friend loaned me. Now I do not need it as much, but I am taking it with me for certain trips where I have to walk far and there are no shopping baskets to push.
I am better every day, and I am able to walk farther each time I take Riley out. I am planning on a shopping trip in a few days- a very short one, but I need some things I cannot order from the grocery store (to be delivered).
And a doctor's visit is coming next month. I will get all the "numbers" then - I just want to get my strength back. I doubt I will do much more than shop occasionally and go to the doctor, but I want to be able to go and do it without problems. (major problems).
On another note - my air is still out - going on 5 months and it is getting hot. A repairman did come by a few weeks ago and diagnosed what is wrong. Management told me they finally got approval for the "board" that is needed, Now if it is not in Japan (it is a Mitsubishi) it should be installed soon.
Sometimes I feel like I am in purgatory paying for my sins. But I know it is just my life that is going wrong-, as it has over the years. But I will keep on trudging along for as long as it takes.
