Nana's new 'Boot"

January 21st, 2009 at 02:02 am

I went with Nana (my mom, but we call her nana cause of the kids and grandkids) today to the orthopedic surgeon. Yup- broken bone that would not heal without firm support. SO, she got one of those velcro boots that she has to wear 24-7 (except during her shower).

Problem was, nana could not coordinate walking with a cane and the boot...whatever that hand-brain connection is was short-circuiting...and she couldnt do it. SO...luckily my boss is very understanding and allowed me a work at home afternoon so I could help her shower and get settled. I think she is ok to get to the bathroom on her own and to I will just be there in the am to help her get dressed...and then off to dialysis.

I DID spend $10 today picking up lunch for Nana and the hub...(I stuck to my meal plan today...cant wait for the next size down in jeans!!!)

BUT...yesterday I collected all may change and turned it in today..$ that more than paid for lunch. Right now I am saving my extra $$ for nesw vacation clothes for Puerto Vallarta in May. Smile...which will hopefully be 2-3 sizes smaller than I am today... Big Grin
