Hello again

Hi, everyone! I'm really trying to get back to posting but it's a slow process for me. It's kind of like a group of people who are very close who live in a small town and then they're all moved to a big city. Even though they still care about each other it's harder to stay in touch and keep that closeness. At least that's how it is for me. Maybe someday it will feel like home again.

I'm trying to get back on my feet. My foot that was broken feels funny on the floor and it's very hard for me to get back in the process of walking without the boot. I have no problem with the support of the boot but without it I feel so vulnerable, like it's going to collapse and I'll fall, which I did this morning. I was walking back from the bathroom, very gingerly, and tripped. Not being too steady anyway, I fell to the floor and twisted my good foot underneath me, breaking a toe. It's all black and swollen and hurts like crazy! Now I can't walk again without pain. If it ain't one thing it's another!

Since I've been housebound so much I've spent a lot of time playing Qwerty on Pogo. It's like Scrabble and really gives your brain a good workout. I met a great lady months ago and we've become good friends. We usually meet several times a week and talk and play Qwerty together. She's like a long-lost family member. I've told her all my troubles and we're still friends! She's lived in Turkey for many years and it's so interesting to hear about things there, things that I'll never see. She also has a blog here on blogger. Her name is Spot, the turkey. :) She has a lot of great recipes and now has a fun food survey there. Go check it out. I filled mine out and will post it later.

So that's about all that's going on here; more pain in my other foot, Molly's on new pain medicine and we're crossing our fingers that it works and doesn't hurt her, Paul's taking care of things as much as he can, I'm getting ready to get back in the world, and so on. I'll be around to visit everyone and try to catch up.

Have a great weekend!

I'm am always thrilled when you write an entry. I really miss you and yes, the blogging is just not the same.

I'm still here daily just to get the updates of all the people I care about, but when they don't update (and not just YOU), I do ask myself why I bother blogging myself.... *snif*

I'm glad you found a new friend. I visited Istanbul once with my ex on one of his flights (he was an airline pilot). Somewhere I have pictures.... or should I say, HE has pictures *pout*

Take care of that foot, eh those feet! {hugs}

Thanks for posting. It will never be the same. It is an effort for me when I do post.
Glad you found a new friend.
Ouchie on the toe.

You need to hire a handsome young guy to carry you around everywhere, so you don't injure your feet/legs anymore. lol. So glad that you up-dated us. Please stop in more often. I miss you more than you know. Take care. Hugs.

Hi, Betty. I'm glad you updated. Sorry about your toe, it's hard to walk without one, eh? I hope all of you (Molly included) are going to be feeling good shortly.

Darlin...I have had so many injuries that I could almost be a bone doctor. The first bit of advice is to walk as normally as you can. If you use a cane or crutches, keep your gait normal. It is hard and hurts a little but your recovery is easier.
Secondly...take Xanadu's advice!

Hope you get that broken toe healed up and get to feeling more comfortable putting weight on that foot and walking around as normally as possible SOON!

It's nice to "see" you posting again.

*Hugs*
