Riana thanks for the info about ramps. We have a long ramp on the side of the church which is in need of something to keep it from being slippery, that should do the trick.

Zoe, if it's a wooden ramp that's slippery, l have a solution. ( Our house came with one, and we've kept handy for moving things up into the house and out). When doing stain/ water repellant, sprinkle clean sand  over the still very wet surface (  bags available at building improvement stores to mix with mortar etc.) 

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays yesterday

Thanks for well wishes and compliments on sock.  Today is much better than yesterday.  Have mastered into/out of bed with knee cart and into/out of wheelchair to knee cart.   Now if I could do that to the sofa or recliner, I would be a happy camper.  Pain level is very tolerable so hope that is a good sign.  If they tell me I need this on right foot, will think twice LOL.

Wilma the socks are pretty ! Hope you heal up nice.

Linda, I have a condition called EOE, not sure you have that. But, if so.. no to PPi's, ask for dilation- best thing I ever did.

Riana, hope your eye treatment will be helpful.

I got my Mom back to PT, last week we completed the walkway for her- it is nice, except some parts are slippery. Might try damaging it a bit with a pressure washer or cutting groves in it 1/4" deep about 2 inches apart. I am trying to quilt, clean and toss out at the same time- it does not work well.  I hope to make one more thing for my SS, if not will just forgive me. Your box is stuffed, might not be in following what others did, but think you will enjoy.

Riana I hope your eye treatments are working well for you.

Speedy recover Wilma and Beautiful socks.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Friday

Wow,snazzy socks, Wilma. Maybe if youfinish the handwork on your quilting project, you could make another pair! Sending possitive  healing thoughts your way. Keep the pain meds handy for those bad's easier to control pain BEFORE it gets those nerve ends jangling.

Comment by Mary Moore on Friday

Riana, Eyes?

Wilma, Sorry to hear about heel.  Get better.

Linda, Good new about Indy.  Sounds like you are really trying to take care of you. Good girl.

Comment by Melanie Keith on Thursday

Surgery on the feet sounds just awful to me.  Hands were tough, too.  But feet -makes mine hurt just thinking about it.  Hope you are doing better, Wilma, and dI will pray for a better day tomorrow.  

Riana - thank you for the kind words.  Sweet is probably not one my dh would use....hope you can get your trip in on time.

Linda - thank you for filling in for Kathy.  You're a peach!

Comment by Linda Koller on Thursday

I don't think we've voted for Sept. yet Riana. I think it would be a good idea if everyone sent in their votes to Kathy and copy me. I know Kathy has been busy. I will take care of it if she doesn't have time.

Wilma I hope your heel heals quickly. I know how boring sitting around can be. I've been doing it for months now.

I've had my 2nd temporary nerve block and have a consult scheduled in 2 weeks. This week I've had a swallow study for my choking problem and today I go for my kidney imaging. Indy had another followup and is doing fantastic. The vet took him off one of the anti seizure meds and slowly reducing the prednisone dosage. His B-12 injections were also reduced to every other week. He's enjoying retirement.
