Winners…Medical Updates

I apologize for not announcing winners earlier this week.  We’ve had a busy week….and busy not the way we really expected.

Hubby took a bad fall at work and ended up in the ER.  His knee, the one that’s already bad, took the brunt of the fall.  He was assigned crutches for a week, along with pain killers and rest.  If you think I’m bad at taking care of myself, he’s worse.  He has been resting a bit…you know, like mowing the lawn…going to an auction….you know, rest as in not really resting.  In his defense it is a riding lawn mower and there were chairs at the auction.  He has been hobbling around and still went to work.  Thankfully we’ve had rain so that made work for him a little less stressful and the hours not quite as long.

Anyway…that left me with a little more to do so things like picking the winner of the blog post got shoved to the back burner.  Sorry but that’s life around there.

For me medically, work went good last week.  It was my first week back.  I was tired by the time it was bedtime but that’s okay.  It was a good tired…a more normal tired-not fatigue tired.  My main complaint at this time is that my sense of taste is still not there.  Everything has a metallic taste…it’s gotten a bit better so it’s more like a “I just brushed my teeth taste”.  Either way it’s still no fun.  It’s kind of anticlimactic to spend an hour making supper anticipating a yummy supper only to find that not much tastes good.  I’m trying to be optimistic and just be glad that this is worst thing left that’s bothering me….I can do this WAY over the fatigue and head aches.  I have to say that making food like potato salad where you almost have to taste it to know if needs more salt or mustard is really-really hard.

Enough about the health thing…on to picking a winner.

    Glad you are getting better and the taste thing is the worse, when my late husband was going through chemo, they told him to eat with a plastic fork or spoon, nothing metal because you would be able to taste the metal.
    Take care of yourself and your wonderful hubby, good ones don’t come around to often.
