So it's Friday and I'm actually posting about Friday ~ YAHOO! I've finally caught up to my own life.
Today was a monumental day for me ~ I am done with physical therapy ~ officially released. I had two amazing physical therapists. BJ and Jean Marie at Beachside Physical Therapy. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all their hard work and effort to get me better (notice I didn't say back to normal!). The whole staff there are really great and they actually CARE ~ such a rarity these days. They always cheered me on when I was conquering a new skill (like drinking without a straw) and were compassionate when I was having a bad day. So here we are today and thanks to them I am smiling again ~ still a bit crooked but smiling!
Now here's the photo I haven't shown you (or anyone) before now. This was taken just after my diagnosis of Bell's Palsy but before I had any movement at all. Believe it or not, I was actually trying to smile in this photo. Now you see why I scared small children! I do want to thank all of you who have called or emailed to check up on me and wish me well through all of this. I can't begin to tell you how much it means to me that you care. I know that was a big part in helping me heal.
I did finally manage to finish the baby quilt I was making for Alex's sister's baby Cameron. I was really afraid that by the time I got around to finishing it he'd be old enough to drive down here and get it. This little guy had a bit of a rough start in life and had to have surgery while still just days old but he was a trooper and is doing really well now.
Also want to wish a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my cousin Jimmy tomorrow! Love ya Cuz!
All in all it's been a great day for me ~ So, how was your day?
