Charleston Great-grandkids. Butch was Spider Man, and Sweet Girl was – well, she’s her mother’s daughter. Five, going on twenty-five.

The GangsterThe Moll

We had a party at church, and went as Your Friendly Neighbourhood Gangster and his Moll. That’s the first time The Squire’s worn a suit since my mum died.

The scarf was to cover my scar, but actually it wasn’t so noticeable that I needed to cover it.

Sweet Girl has no idea what this is all about, but she’s game.  Love that hat!

Two Weeks and Counting

12 Oct

I had the surgery on my neck two weeks ago today, and since then I have not had a single moment when my back hurt, my legs gave me fits, or any of the other ills that have plagued me for decades.

A couple of years ago I had a mass removed from one armpit, and for the last six months I have been seeing a pain management specialist for what he called “sympathetic pain”. Gone.  There are times when I felt as if somebody was pounding ten-penny nails into my heels, and that is gone. I have had Restless Leg Syndrome since the early 80s, and was up to 2 mg. of clonazepam every night to keep that under control. The last two nights I’ve only taken one mg. I’ll stay on that for a while, and then start cutting them in half.

As Peg said, I won’t know how to walk without all those pebbles in my shoes!

I do still have a pretty ugly scar across my neck, but it is fading. We’re having a Halloween Haunted House at church in a few weeks, and I told the committee I’ll just spread some ketchup over it, and I’ll fit right in.
