Brodie's stitches

Yesterday I took Brodie to finally get her stitches out in the doctor said everything looks great, now we just have to wait until the hair fully grows back on her tail. We took her to the park and she ran around like crazy, just like her old self.

I'm going to go check it out the Alameda County Fair Thursday to see if it's worth going back, judging from last year and from what I have heard so far it sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun. It also looks like the weather is going to be perfect.

The weekend

Last year we went to the Alameda County Fair in Pleasanton and saw Carrot Top. I always thought that he was kind of silly but he was actually really funny. The fair is here again this year for a couple of weeks and I will definitely be there.

Nick came back yesterday to install the surroundsound in my bedroom and it sounds awesome. I had taped the Eagles first farewell concert and we watched it yesterday, it sounded so good the neighbors came over to watch lol...it was unbelievable.

A great day

Today was a really great day. David and Deziree made manicotti for dinner and a really killer salad, it was awesome. They were supposed to stay until tomorrow night but instead they have to leave tomorrow at noon, it's always great to see them but their visits always seems so short.

After dinner my cousin Michael called and we talked for a long time, he and I were really close growing up and always the best of friends. I haven't talked to him for a long time and we promised to keep in touch. I also got to talk to my cousin Steve that I haven't talked to for about 20 years. He sounded really good and he also said he was going to keep in touch, I didn't get to talk to him very long but he's going to call me tomorrow and I can't wait to catch up with him also.

Tomorrow I have an appointment at wound care, I'm starting to feel like I live there.

Happy Birthday to me

I spent most of my birthday in ER. I have been battling with a sore on the outside of my right ankle that I got from my AFO's. While trying to stay off of that I got a sore on the other side of my butt. I was going to wound care and everything was looking pretty good but for some reason on Saturday morning when I went to take a bath the one on my legs looked a lot worse so we decided I needed to go to ER. My mom was leaving the next day, today, and was nervous about leaving when my sore looked so bad. We got to ER about 7 p.m. and finally got out of there about 2 a.m. and we were both very tired. They gave me some antibiotics, said it really wasn't as bad as we thought and urged me to go back to wound care on Monday. I have an appointment at Valley Medical tomorrow anyway so I will see wound care while I'm there. It just takes such a long time for sores to heal and I'm running out of sites to lay on.


I did have a lot of people stopping by, calling me and e-mailing me to wish me a Happy Birthday, that was really nice. And hoping if I stay in bed all weekend I will be able to get up on Tuesday when David comes but he said if not we will stay in and watch movies and order pizza.

Star Wars lll

On Saturday Robert and I went to see Star Wars. He had seen it once before but I didn't, it was a great movie. Lulu went with David and Corinne and they went to see Shark Boy and Lover Girl. I didn't know that Shark Boy and Lover Girl were 3-D, now I'm going to have to see that one because they said it was great. David left his glasses in my wheelchair pocket so Lulu gave him hers and she didn't get to see it in 3-D Saturday night we watched a couple of movies on TV, 50 First Dates and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. It feels so good at night when we are all in my room on my bed watching TV and talking. Stanley came and got them on Sunday and they left after we ate breakfast.

Sunday night somebody called and said that they have my dog. I almost didn't call them back but I'm glad I did. When I called the lady back I told her that my dog was right here but she apparently had Keisha. I gave Keisha to my sister-in-law's brother in Modesto and apparently she had gotten away. When I called my brother Stanley he said that Janet and Corinne had been out looking for her for a couple of hours.

Brodies surgery

I just called and they said that Brodies surgery went great and she is doing fine. They're going to let her rest for a little bit and then we can go and pick her up and bring her home. I miss my baby.

Next Friday were going to Modesto to see Robert graduate from middle school, I can't believe he's going into high school next year. Were bringing the kids back with us for the weekend so Stanley and Janet can celebrate their anniversary alone. On Saturday we're going to take them to Peramount Great America and then on Sunday were taking them to Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk.  Kelly said she would drive.

The weekend after next is going to be my birthday and David is coming down for the weekend. It's so nice that he works for Delta and can do this.  I cannot believe that I'm going to be 44 but it will be great to have my brother and my cousin, along with the rest of my family and friends, to spend it with me.

Kelly's visit

Kelly arrived here Thursday evening, what a nice surprise. She and a friend of hers are going to start a business of their own and she will be staying here until she can find an apartment in San Francisco. Her and her husband will be going back and forth from Florida to San Francisco. It is really nice to have her here.

Brodies tail

Today is kind of a sad day. About a month ago Brodie injured the end of her tail. Since then we have tried everything we can think of and every suggestion from anybody else who had one but nothing worked. We took her back to the vet today for the third time and they said the only thing we can do now is amputate her tail because at this point it is never going to heal, she goes in for surgery on Monday early in the morning.
