A Red, White and Blue..Miracle Day

Happy Fourth of July
Today was full of miracles...
My daughter and her man are the best!!
A holiday with out my dear man...it crept up on me.
It beached me.
My daughter took the kids for awhile and I went back to bed.
When I awoke, the place was alive.
Red, white and blue...food and fireworks...all ready for a feast.
She showed me big time that I still have family left and family that really cares.
The cook here making eyes!!!
 The napkins and plates Lynsey insisted on...She was afraid that I would forget the today was the Fourth of July...Guess she thought knee pain equaled brain pain..
They brought a pool for the kids.
 Ha Ha...on sale cuz the store is putting out school supplies..
OMG, really???
The children adore Uncle Brian!!! 
 Everyone wanted to be first..Uncle Brian made up silly games.
Who can hop the most on one foot????
Who is the first to kiss the cement???  OMG..
 My daughter and her man..did it all...After, they cleaned up and she packed the children's bags for camp.
I could not be happier..How love can just change it all around..
Gratitude.
My surgery deal is getting better every single day..I am exactly 3 weeks post surgery today!!
The pain has lessened 70%...seemingly overnight!!
I can walk 200 steps up and down Fintan's wheelchair ramp, pain free and without a cane...just using the railings.
I still have to use 3 or 4 Hydrocodone a day to manage, but at least it manages and it is down from every four hours around the clock.
The only struggle is getting up and down from a sitting position..
Amazing miracles...
Now I am going to sew my pot luck covers and chill.
Love....Granddaddy watching over all of us with love!

I am glad you are getting some help and taking some time off to chill. I had a busy week so I am taking a day off. I don't like to cook in the summer. Can't wait to see the covers.

Moved to tears on your behalf. A day worth celebrating and marking! and thrilled with your knee progress. A day will come when you get up and down without thinking. I know it seems impossible, but it will happen! Keep walking.

You have the best daughter & son-in-law in the world. It looks like a grand day. I am so happy to hear the surgery pain is beginning to ease & you are getting around a bit better.
You are loved, very much.
