No BLT


Today was Doctor day to remove R staples. It is such a good thing I never wanted to be a nurse! The nurse told him no BLT until at least June 5 when he goes back for X-Rays and checkup. BLT for all us laypeople is no bending, lifting or twisting. He can't drive until he goes back for the checkup. He has done remarkably well considering all the repair work they did on his spine. We saw the 4 screws, 2 rods, and the bone grafts, not pretty, but the pain is gone:)
We have had rain all day today and south of us was a tornado, so storm season is here. This little cardinal didn't care, he just wanted food. We have enjoyed seeing the birds while sitting on our patio waiting out the recovery time.
