Tuesday was a really nice day although I decided to stay in bed because Robby still wasn't feeling very good. I did call and talk to Dr. Dave and he said that Robby probably ate something and have a lot of gas in his stomach and somehow hurt his back, that's really scary. They gave him some tramadol and said to make him chicken, rice, sweet potatoes and low-sodium chicken broth to eat… He was really happy with that but I forgot to ask the doctor how much and for how long so he's enjoying it for a while. Lisa came in and put me on my side for a while and gave me a manicure and pedicure, I haven't had my fingernails and toenails done for a while and of course she did a great job. Rosa came in and we did some personal care and I got to take a nice long hot bath, first one in a while and it felt great!
Wednesday I really really wanted to get up but I'm supposed to rain all day and guess what?? It didn't. Robby was still looking and moving a little slow so I decided to stay in bed and hang out with the puppy. Lisa came in and brought me a really cool woodland penguin and a really pretty Orchid plant, unfortunately I forgot to take pictures but hopefully we can do that tomorrow. Teresa came in and brought me some stuffed salmon and zucchini from whole foods, it was really good. We each opened a couple of presence and are so excited with what she got me. I LOVE the Big Bang theory and she got me a T-shirt and a soft Kitty, I just love it! The rest of the evening I just relaxed and watched TV.
Thursday was Christmas, it seemed like it took forever to get here and it also seemed like this year went by really fast. Teresa came in and make me blueberry pancakes and sausage for breakfast, I love pancakes and sausage. We did some personal care and I got to take a shower and then we opened up our kids to each other, Teresa always knows the perfect gifts to get me. Kelly made an incredible Christmas dinner for my mom and I. Chile Verde enchiladas and roasted garlic guacamole. She also made to unbelievable desserts, banana cream pie and layered carrot cake with creamy cheesecake and graham cracker frosting… I tried really hard not to eat too much.
Saturday was pretty great day. Lisa came in and got me up in my chair and I went outside to talk to Omar and sure enough… And let go of Robby's leash for two seconds and turned around and he was digging up Cat poop out of the roses, and yelled at him and he ignored me so I charged at him with my chair and told him to drop it but I think he ate it… Here we go again. I asked Omar if he could just put River rock wherever there's dirt so we don't have to keep having this problem. He said he would do it on Tuesday, I can't wait. I came back inside and Stanley made me breakfast… An omelette, two pieces of bacon and a blueberry pancake. I took Robby for cruise and took some pictures but of course they were pretty much the same pictures I always take, such a beautiful route. I came back home and said hello to my nephew David and Janet came in. We talked for a little bit and then Kelly started coming over with food. Kelly made a prime rib roast, cauliflower and asparagus and Janet made cheesy potatoes… It was all pretty amazing. We played cribbage for a while, Robert was my partner, and then had dessert, the same desert that we had the night before and they were so good. Teresa came in and put me to bed and David came in and tried to fix my computer, my pictures were not uploading for my cell phone to my iPhoto. The rest of the evening and just watched intervention and relaxed.
Sunday was a really great day. My family was visiting, the sun was out and we went to the Crows Nest… I have wanted to go there since I moved here and it was everything I could've ever imagined. I had crab cakes Benedict with potatoes and fruit and it was EXCELLENT. The view was amazing, I usually only just get to drive by and I always hope that one day I will be able to just go cruise around over there, it's impossible to get there in my chair because the sidewalks are way too narrow. After that we went over to Costco to get my mom a new TV, when we got back the guys installed it and then unfortunately they had to go home. Each time they come to visit I enjoy it more and more and their stay gets shorter and shorter. Teresa came in and put me to bed and I just got to relax the rest of the evening.
