Hello Girls. I have been having alot of medical problems and havent felt like doing anything. I have a cold now thanks to being out last Sunday in the wind and rain. I have also been seeing an orthopedic doctor for my lower back. He sent me for some injections that really helped but I have to go back again as they have worn off. With all the bone growth over the spine, they really cant do much else so I am trying to do as little as I can to keep from hurting. Tried PT and it just hurt too much.

My great grandson Cameron turned 2 on Sunday. He's getting to be quite the little man. His newest thing is he is in love with Toy Story and that was the theme of his b-day party. My other new great grandson Kent is now 8 months old and crawling all over the place. I went to see him a week or so ago and at first, he was a little shy but he warmed up to me when I got down on the floor and played with his toys with him. Then Britney and Sarah had to help me get back up. lol

I guess we are in for a warm up weatherwise finally. The old folks called it blackberry winter and I dont care what it was, just want my warm weather back.

Dandy will be 2 in a couple weeks. She's settling down some, not quite as frisky as she was as a pup. She's mellowing out at last! Whew! lol

Hugs, Jackie

Sorry to hear about your medical problems. It's hard to feel like doing anything when you aren't feeling well. Does it help your back to lie on the floor? I do that sometimes and then bring my knees up to my chest and rock from side to side. You might want to try that.
Birthday wishes to Cameron and Dandy!
