    Yeah, giving up your drivers license sucks. Had to do that this year when I was bedbound, but was supposed to go to the dmv for a road test to renew it. Don't know that I will ever get it back

    On the good news front: was at the wound clinic yesterday. My newest pressure sore seems to be healing. Shallower, no longer bleeding. I still have to stay off it, but am somewhat relieved. And physical therapy went well. Was able to transfer from exercise table to wheelchair without using a slide board, and able to stand at the parallel bars for a whole 15 seconds!! So home exercising seems to be helping....in between lying in bed for hours each day

    No trick or treaters here. We are way too far off the beaten path th lure them. We like the day after Halloween, though: all the candy is half price!

    Peg, that is a tough moment for sure. Are you able to still enjoy riding a horse or a tractor, for fun, not for transportation?

    Uppitycats, glad to hear your progress. Every increment of progress is something to revel in.

    Getting the cervical spine and thoracic spine MRI today. Finally.

    Peg, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with losing your driver's license. I've seen how hard that hits people.

    You're good with a computer and being able to do a lot of things online might help to make this easier.

    Cat, that is such good news about the pressure sore! With luck they've caught it in time. And congratulations on the signs of improvement!

    Good luck with the MRIs, BBS. Do they do them both at the same time?

    Cool

    :) Peg I am sorry about your license. For awhile they had me take the driving test every year because of MS. Two years ago they changed the DMV and put it under the tax collector. I have not had to take it since then. In 2018 when I renew I am sure they will make me take it again.

    Living alone would not be easy if I could not drive. I only go to the grocery, the doctor, vet and dentist and once in a while to dinner close to home.

    Cat I am glad your bedsore is healing and that PT is helping. I don't know if I could stand for 15 minutes. Maybe one or two minutes. BBS let us know your results please.

    Andy will be here soon to do my trash and recycle. The ceiling light is out in the computer room so I will get him to change it. I am so grateful that he is so willing to help me. Jeanie :)

    Cool

    I tried to lose a day, but it didn't work. I somehow got it in my head, we get paid tomorrow. Now tomorrow I won't have coffee unless I save some today. I guess it was just wishful thinking.

    I did sleep late today, but payday I'll be out the door before 7, and get everything done. After grocery shopping payday, it will be coffee time. I'm having coffee with a spoonful of chocolate ice cream, and a spoonful of sugar. It makes a nice flavor, and cools it enough to start sipping it.

    So tomorrow, and today, I am doing NOTHING. I do have a meal for each day, just not....sniff....coffee!

    Have a great day gang!
