Chapter 62, the pity party

I am feeling sorry for myself today. I hurt my shoulder while i was in CA, I have been in pain and on pain meds since 7/17/09. The Dr. has x-rayed it, had an MRI done, and decided that the MRI was not accurate, so now is fighting with eh insurance company to get another MRI done, where they will inject dye into my shoulder. I have lost a ton of strength can not lift the arm, and am just miserable. sighs. I can't brush or wash my hair, and it is funny to watch me struggle into clothing. I had never thought about how much I relied on my right hand/arm to get dressed. I can't adjust my pants, or get my bra on, and pulling a shirt on is pain. I am even beginning to have problems driving. I am okay for short distances around town, but I am trying not to drive. The house is going to pot, as I can't even keep up with the laundry, or dishes. I can do some knitting, and some embroidery. I have not tried crochet yet. so maybe all is not lost. sighs. I just want the pain to go away so I can sleep for more than 3 hours a night.

Chapter 61, The Pommie meets the girls

Cleo Violet

Today the girls are five weeks old and the kids and I decided it was time for them to "meet" the doggies. The dogs have sniffed the cage over, but today was the first time they got to sniff the girls over. I held the piggies and Reesie (who begged to be allowed to meet the girls) and Nicholas worked the camera. Reesie was so cute! he sniffed them all over, then licked them and tried to clean their ears. LOL when he was done, Violet sat up and gave herself a bath to fix her hair. Cleo just sat and took it. Both Piggie girls did not seem afraid of Reesie, and sniffed him over as he was cleaning them. Reesie is not to sure he likes me holding the piggies instead of him.
