Got my second shot yesterday.  It's been 24 hours and the only side effect is a slightly sore arm.  Well, except for this tequilla craving.  You up for it Thurman.  Just say where and when.

I've had both shots of Pfizer thanks to the St. Louis Veterans Admin.  I had no side effects from either.

I just watched the service for Dean. It was very moving. I feel for his family and shed a lot of tears. The pictures were wonderful. RIP Dean.

I watched Dean's memorial, also.  I was moving and the slide show really was great as well.  RIP Dean.

FYI Gayle fell last Monday and had to have a hip replacement. She is currently in rehab until the end of the month. I'm sure she would appreciate prayers. 

Have a smiley day and a great weekend!

I just talked to Gayle.  She is doing well but it is slow going.   Between PT, OT, and daily care her days are pretty full and exhausting.   Frainklin Cty went purple this week so she is not sure what their new protocol will be but up until now it is one visitor a day for 1/2 hour.  This is, of course, really limiting. She wants to reach out to everyone but does not have the technology or the energy to do so on anything but a very limited basis right now.  She is being well cared for now and has a wonderful support group,  She has promised to try to let me know how she is doing and I will let you know.  Keep those prayers going out to her.  Kathy

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I took a wheelchair walk this morning from the end of the hall to the other end with the reward of being at the vending machine! But more importantly strengthening my legs for a return to normal soon!

     I'm so sorry about your fall, but glad to hear that the rehab is going well.  Hang in there, it will just be a memory before too long.

Gayle, if this was anyone else I would probable think they would just basically give up. But you are a fighter and I have no doubt that you will be up and "charging forward" in no time. Just don't rush it TOO much. Prayers for you as always and keep up the spirits. As was said in an earlier message to you, you are a big part of the "glue" that holds this class together. Keep us posted on your progress.

Gayle, I know the issues you may be having.  I had a hip replaced 17 years ago.  Doc told me it was good for about 20 years.  I think he was a bit optimistic.  I've been in pain and walkiing with a limp for a couple of years.  I do not know how much longer I can put off getting it done again.

I wishh you well and of course a speedy recovery.

Good morning all!

I'm getting my brain working on a going home plan! The date is next Friday Apr 30. The extra days here have given me additional info about how to strengthen my gait and balance. 

Thank you all for your good wishes and blessings in these posts and cards. One in particular confused Wanda who delivers the mail. She didn't know who Gayle Thomas was! What a great reminder of how connected we are!!

Blessings and peace to you all!

So happy to hear you're going home.  Please take it easy and try not to over work that hip.

Hi Gayle,

Glad to hear that your recovery from hip replacement surgery is going well. 

I had a hip replaced in Nov. 2019. It's a tough recovery program but I found that strict adherence to the pysical therapy exercises, which I also did at home, during these last 17 months have given me greater stength and balance than I've had in 25 years. The exercises are painful and result in soreness but they are worth it in the long run. To give me an incentive to keep going, especially during the first 2-3 months post-surgery, I identified at least one improvement in my consition each morning and that gave me hope to press ahead. I found that the biggest jump in fitness (strength and balance with much less pain) occurred when I could begin walking without a walker or a cane for 30 minutes at a time. Now I'm walking 2 - 3.5 miles, six times a week and still doing the exercises.

Wishing you all the best in your recovery!!

With a heavy heart just heard of Carolyn Campbell Tremain (Ms. Campbell) passing.  I never forgot her firm teaching guidance she gave me.  

Rest in peace sweet lady.

I was in Ms. Campbell's English class when they announced that Kennedy was shot and then died.  Was anyone else in there that day?  Meredith came to the door and asked to speak to me.  Ms. Campbell said I could go. The two of us went into the girls bathroom, sat on the floor and smoked cigarettes.  I don't really remember talking, just sitting on the cold tile with our backs up against the wall smoking.

Thank you all for your thoughts and notes during the past 2 1/2 months. There is a status update: they found a small blood clot in my non-surgery leg on Thursday. Am taking a blood thinner and being a little more careful for the next 3 months. I can drive and walk but only for short distances. Have a good time and safe travels to/from the Mini on July 1st!

Gayle, glad to hear you are continuing wellness in one area but sorry to hear about your blood clot problem. Just do as instructed and you should do okay. You may (and that's only a "may" have to stay on them for a very long time if not forever. Depending on what you are on you may not have much problem with bleeding or buising. I have been on Eliquist for many years and really cannot see any difference when I get cut, stuck with needles, IV's etc. But remember don't over do it until doc says you can increase activity. Take care dear lady.

I talked to Katie this morning. She has had 2 eye surgeries recently and she said to tell you her sky is now blue! t's been 6 years since her brain surgery and her vision slowly turned to everything looking yellow. 

And she is not wearing glasses or contacts! Only readers for close work. 

Blessings and peace to you all.

Love, Katie
