The weekend before Christmas means shopping and Christmas parties, even for someone with limited energy and mobility. We had two “parties” to attend. “Get together” is a more accurate description for both.
Friday afternoon we went to Apex Physical Therapy and partied with Bill, his support staff and other patients. Hadn’t seen Bill in a few weeks so it was really fun to catch up.
Saturday we went to a small gathering at a friends place and built gingerbread houses and had a gift exchange. The gingerbread was all made from scratch, and the work station was well stocked with delicious and colorful goodies. I love watching peoples creativity flow with fun projects like this. Our friends are seriously talented. I’d post a picture of the winning gingerbread house, but it doesn’t classify as PG or even PG-13.
Today we finally made a move on a car, after weeks of online research and dealership visits. The one day they physically cannot sell us a car, is the day we’re ready to buy. The power went out all over Temecula today, haulting businesses from the mall to Pechanga casino, including all the car dealers. Oh well, this just gives us one more night to know we are making the right decision.
Tomorrow we visit Nicks pain doctor again. Time for plan C. He’s been in more severe pain for the past week and a half since his last cortisone shot. We’ll be investigating how he can benefit from a spinal cord stimulator trial. It sounds like that might be the next step for Fener.
