At Long Last .... An Update 
1st-May-2015 02:13 pm
Brothers!

About time I hear you say !!!

Hope all is well with you and I haven't missed too much.  I seem to go from one day to another, and never get time to spend relaxed in front of my computer.  This is being done on my tablet while Mum and Dad have a snooze.  Good excuse to not do housework as I have to keep quiet 😉

So let's get up to date .....

1 - I am actually feeling a lot better .... my energy levels are up and the pain level down.  My osteopath has said that he is also pleased with progress, but still has a long way to go.  Anyway I am feeling positive, and for the first time in ages I am actually going to restart playing my clarinet.

2 - Dad is doing OK ... he still gets times when he loses himself and his vocabulary is not great.  However he is keeping busy doing gardening every day .... even when I am not around to nag!  He goes to Church with me every Sunday and takes Jiffy for a walk every day.  So all in all for a 90 year old Alzheimer's sufferer he is doing well.

3 - Mum has good days and  bad days ... for the first time yesterday she did about quarter of an hour sweeping where I was digging ... she was wiped out by the end, but it was good to see her wanting to do something.

4 - I am now on Instagram .... so if anyone else is then find me there .... Debris4spike.  My nephews nagged me, and although my phone camera is not great it is still fun.

5 - Jiffy keeps well.  The mornings I am here (4) we go for a walk ... so that's nice for us both.

6 - Now I am in a routine with cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc, life is easier.  I feel more in control of my own life again.

Well I have to get on .... certainly busy as ever, but at least now I am feeling a bit stronger life is a bit easier.

Will try to keep up better.  But I know I am a bad girl, so make no promises 😄

Lovely to see such a great positive update from you Deborah, I'm so glad you're feeling better healthwise, and that your mum and dad are doing well - and that you've got an organised routine letting you feel in control again.

*hugs*

Getting a routine has certainly helped.

How are things with you and the girls ... either of them .... do either of them have exams?

*hugs* back

You're a busy girl, not a bad one! I'm glad to hear things are improving for you. I hope they keep going well. (Are you on Pinterest?)

Not heard of Pinterest ... so will have a look at that.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better and that your parents are still doing fairly well all things considered. Thanks for checking in :)

Sounds like keeping busy is actually a good thing for you. Will you still post pictures here or just on Instagram?

I have posted the pictures .... thanks for suggestion. I know you have other things on your mind ... hugs you.
