Adventure #3 - Our LONG Drive to Las Vegas

Over a week ago I finally got around to writing about one of our adventures from last month. Adventure #3 is done, in the book and can be read here. The other 8 will be up soon, and then I'll be caught up! Thankful our next adventure shouldn't happen until sometime around the middle to end of May. I am so grateful I had the layouts done before my accident so to make it easier to blog while traveling, but that was not how it ended up working out. I didn't even take my laptop with us. I was just so thankful I got to still go on the trip, I didn't want to jinx it or add anything else to it!

Being able to type one and a half handed is better than one-handed, LOL! I can actually rest my left arm on the laptop now and move just my hand as needed. Mobility has been improving too. Bruises have healed, aches and pains have reduced considerably, and only get pop pain up after exercising which I have been given and are allowed to do. What I also had was my first outpatient PT appointments last week. Went very well. Will be at them twice a week for 30 weeks. That seems like a long time but having a myopathy adds just a bit of a challenge. Plus my insurance allows me 60 visits a year, and since I have met my deductible for the year, they are covered 100%. Also no more Home Health as of the Friday before last, yay! We also stopped the nurses, or as I had been calling them, grannysitters! I had three different ladies help me over the 6 weeks, all were so helpful and allowed me to continue resting, and healing, instead of straining it trying to keep up with things myself.

Last week I got to go to the fair and watch my granddaughter show her goats. She did excellent as always. She received Grand Champion and Grand Champion Reserved for Breed with her two baby girls. Plus she got purple for their momma's! She didn't do as well in her showmanship, getting the first blue, but understood where she slipped up. Lesson learned!
Because she has two dairy goats, she needs help during the breed judging. On the left is Brook with her leader's daughter, and my granddaughter is on the right with Chloe. Even though Brook is absolutely beautiful, she does have an attitude and doesn't like to show. Chloe just LOVES strutting her stuff!
She wasn't the only one entering the ring. During the PeeWee Show, young kids not yet of age to actually enter themselves, get to check it out as well. It's my grandson 3rd year with the goats but his first for the calf.
He looks like such a pro!

That was the extent of my time at the fair this year. I didn't even get to the other exhibits. I am so stubborn to use my chair in town. It's one thing for the races, amusement parks and such, but to get around town, I would prefer to try and walk it. Only since my accident, has it been difficult. Hoping the strain will pass with therapy as we continue to work out those muscles again. 

Just another week of Our Journey Through LIFE. Thanks for stopping by.
