TGIF! It’s been a crazy week that’s for sure. Thank you so much for all your kind emails, messages and comments on the blog post earlier this week about my grandfather’s leg. Some of you may know that his leg has been cramping up causing him to drop to the floor and basically be confined to his recliner or bed. We took him to the doctor and they gave him a stronger muscle relaxer to help with the cramping and spasms. As my grandfather said a couple days ago, “it sucks getting old kid.”
He is still confined to his recliner or bed but he can kind of get around with a walker but he is soooooo slow. It’s like he went from a mobile, spunky 86 year old to a crippled 100 year old :(. He aged years in a matter of one day it seems. I know that sounds crazy but this picture above is how he was last week, walking around with his cane and causing trouble. It’s horrible to see him not be able to walk and get around. I mean, my grandmother is in better shape right now and that’s not saying much. She has been using a walker for years and literally can barely move at times. For him to worse, is just shocking. Keep your fingers crossed that the meds help my grandfather’s leg over the next week. His left leg is much better today and his right leg seems to be getting a little better. He isn’t in tears anymore with pain so that is a plus! I just want him back up and around. On a happy note, the police station makeover is coming along nicely and if you follow us on facebook, you saw me yesterday making a cornice board that just about killed me. -ha.
