    Good night muffie!

    Today I'm off to see my advisor and get my school schedule. Then I'm doing some Christmas shopping, treating myself to a nice meal at St Elmo's in downtown Indianapolis and will look at some apts.

    Feeling better tonight and I pray I don't get sick before I see my advisor tomorrow.

    I got my financial aid report. Good news - for my very expensive private college I don't have to borrow a dime! Got scholarships and grants to cover everything. Someone in another post chastised me for going to an expensive college and accumalating debt. Hah!

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Congrats, bethin, on going to the college of your choice without debt! That deserves a big WOOT!!! And have a good day treating yourself, it sounds like you have a great day planned!

    Muffie, hope the vascular consult results are good news for your maman. Thanks for starting the thread, hope you get some sleep before tomorrow!! At least you'll have a nice lunch.

    Greetings to all who post after, I'm going to bed now (West Coaster here!) and will see you all in the morning! May today be, in some small way, better than yesterday. Prayers going out to all who need them. --- D

    GOOD MORNING, MY LITTLE PEEPS!!

    well, it's almost 0200 here in the WINDY CITY!!! LITERALLY!!It's raining and the wind is gusting here, tonite!!

    For those who remember my sob story from last weekend with my leaking & crumbling ceiling, I don't know exactly what will happen tonite. DH has buckets strategicly placed & he hopes he can trace the path of the leakage to seee where he needs to do repair work. The roof is fairly new, so he thinks or rather hopes the leak is around the window area; that will be easy enough to fix.

    Wednesday was indeed his last physical therapy session; he has made great progress on that shoulder & will most likely no need surgery!! Thank the Lord!! He increased his shoulder ROM from 45degrees to 110 defrees. He met 3 out of his 4 goals---he just has t o work on strengthening. His overall pain went from 8/10 to 2/10. He's quite plesed.

    I'm at work & it's a much busier nite then it hasbeen the other 2. Of course, that's mainly because I have totally different patients again!!
    All of my patients are still here--just not assigned to me. Oh well; not going to go there!!! I'm in a fairly good mood---don't want to ruin it.

    I'm off Thurs & Fri nite!! I'm having my hair trimmed right after work & ten nothing else really planned.
    I do have to start working on getting the house in order since my Mom will be coming for 4 1/2 days over the Holiday.
    I'm looking forward to that!! She is going to be out East at my Sis's house for three weeks over Christmas & New Year's. She does so well for a Woman going on 90!! I hope I can do as well when I reach her age-----If I reach her age!!

    Muffie, thank you for starting the thread!! I do hope your Mom's consult goes well!! I'm sorry that you can't sleep!! That's why I prefer to just stay on nights---no switching. I know I would do poorly with that!

    Beth, I'm so glad you feel better---hope it stays!! Congrats on the Scholorships & grants!! I hope all goes well for you today!!

    Dianah, I hope you get good sleep tonite!! . and hope you have a wonderful day!!

    I really do hope y ou all have a wonderful Thursday!!

    I think I will leave my Day buddies some really good coffee-- here's a NEVER ENDING POT of Kona Coffee!! Hope you enjoy--Siri & Susy & anyone else who wants a cuppa Joe!!!

    here is a nice cup of tea for others

    So to all yet to come, have a GREAT DAY!!

    Mary Ann, I had no idea you lived in Chicago. Chicago is my all time favorite city. I'd live there after graduation but I hate winter. I love the lake, Navy Pier, Michigan Ave (although I could never afford to shop), water tower. Love it all! I'm so glad that I'm only 5 hours away - I live in So East Indiana. Oh, and I love the museums. My fave is the Field Museum. I envy you!

    That good news about your husband but not such good news about your roof. It's raining here too. I even hear some thunder. I also heard that we might be getting some snow Friday.

    Funny that you posted those pictures of someone sleeping on a desk. One night I got NO sleep and had to work a 12 hour shift the next day (48 hrs with no sleep). I was ok until I sat down to chart at a computer. Fell asleep and ended up falling off the chair! Luckily no one saw me and we only had 9 pts and all the aides and nurse was on the floor. Even if I get a good nights sleep, if I sit down at work I nod off. I always have to be moving or doing something.

    Wow, your mom is almost 90 and still goes out to see her kids! That's great. I took care of a 92 yo woman who had a cell phone and told me the week prior she stayed up for 24 hours to play 287 hands of gin. That's how I want to be when I get old!

    Hope your night continues to go well!!!

    hello from me.
    thursday evening here.
    went into the city today and met a friend for lunch. enjoyed looking at all the christmas decorations and ornaments etc. bought dh a dvd, "lonesome dove". he loves that movie! bought the first of the christmas gifts, a book. i always give books! i love books! :-)
    dh progressing s-l-o-w-l-y. his pain score is still hovering around 8/10 most of the time. the wounds, (2 keyhole + 2 3 inch incisions), have healed nicely. rom very limited. it's 'only' three weeks since surgery and the doc says anywhere up to 12 weeks for full recovery, so guess it's still early days. he's a good patient, but understandably frustrated at his situation. i took him out to lunch on tuesday to try and ease the frustration. that helped somewhat. i'm having to find ways to obtain space for me! being together 24/7 gets a tad "testy" at times! lol still, so far, so good.
    ok, i'm outta here!
    enjoy your thursday! :-)
    cheers.............

    Hi Grace!

    Sorry your dh is still is so much pain. Hopefully each day he will get better. Couldn't imagine being holed up with my husband for days and days. Think I'd end up in an aslyum. Thankfully, I'm not married. Although my parents can drive me insane...........like all the time.
