Kathy, what did it take for you to heal your torn ligament in your ankle? That must have been awful! Can you describe your treatment and how long it took to heal? Did you have surgery? 

I don't mind surgery at all, it is just all the checks and re-checks that concern me. My little bedroom suits me just fine and the trouble getting me in the car is hard on Larry. I have been losing weight, so maybe it won't be so hard next time. Or maybe we can get Jared or Zac to do the lift.

Thomas, I am very sorry you had "plantar fasciitis feet". What does that mean? Is it something one does or does not do, or something one inherits? How does one prevent it? or protect against having an event? 

I have worn orthopedic inserts for years and heavy "grandma" shoes for as long as I can remember. 

Can you describe your experience for me? What did you feel? How long before it healed? What treatment did you choose? Did you use exercise to speed healing? Did you have to have surgery? How was the outcome? 

The family brought in equipment to help me, i.e. wheelchair, and we brought out of storage the potty chair and cane.

I have what I call "Stations." I hop, roll, scoot, and limp from one station to the next without help from anyone. That pleases me. However, there are things I can't do, i.e. get into my closet, empty my honeypot, bring in my meals. Oh! Pooh! This part is hard for me to ask others to do for me. 

Laura and Larry, Laurie and Zac, Michelle and Jared, and all six great-grandkids help me. Almost three-year-old Brooklyn caught me a toad for our greenhouse to cheer me up. Toads like the crickets and flies that gather there; jeez, they are ugly!

I have a few blackberry canes. But they are very small. Almost like a bush. I picked a handful of ripe ones a couple days ago and they are so sour you can't eat them. That must be why the birds didn't eat them :)

Randy, I'm glad you have someone with you picking berries.  

My raspberries are still producing on last years canes.  Another month and I'll have a good harvest on this years canes.

My blackberries haven't started yet.

Raspberry season is over. Now, it's time for blackberries. My grandson ate the one and only ripe one so far! He's only 7, but loves to pick berries with me. And I love having him with me.

Daniel, do you have cherry fruit flies?  I removed all my cherry trees because once the fruit flies found them (in year 3), every cherry had a fruit fly worm in it.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 5, 2017 at 1:02pm

I used to like birds before I grew fruit.

Ouch, Ouch, Ouch!  Hope I never have a torn ligament.

Comment by Idaho Spud on July 4, 2017 at 5:16am

Daniel, the carrot kill made me chuckle.

Comment by kathy: ky on July 3, 2017 at 10:38pm
Thomas, they couldn't pay me to go to the Arch. Such a joke.

I second your comment about Daniel's positive attitude. I wish more people were like that.
Joan, I tore a ligament in my ankle years ago. Very painful. I hope you heal quickly.
