Good news and Sunshine, Blue Skies and Strawberries, Butterflies and Bees.
















Pop Art.


Slept well last night until something woke me up, from the light outside it was before 6 am.

Just as I was thinking what now Richie got up, so when he returned I asked him for THC which was successful in helping me get back off to sleep.

Had a strange dream about being stuck somewhere in the middle of someone’s endless rambling conversation.

When I told Richie he suggested that is was maybe someone talking outside, we do get alot of people who have to stand under our bedroom window talking loudly.

Weird that they never seem to mind who hears them, it is like people who go on the Radio and TV.

And tell millions of listeners their secrets which up to that moment no one not even family and friends knew.

Oh well just have to learn to live with these street 'performances' maybe I will even see the funny side.

Ton Peeks,from the RCA, (Amsterdam Rehabilitation Clinic) came around 30 minutes earlier today, yesterday it slept from his mind, because he was so busy at the Rehabilitation Clinic.

He was so embarrassed about this, and suggested he came round today at 12.15, so I was very surprised when the phone rang and Ton said he was at the front door.

Luckily Richie arrived home with the dogs so Ton could come up and inspect the wound.

Ton was very pleased it is barely 1 mm, very tiny and the skin looks very good around the healing wound.

He will be back on 7 October, when we all hope that it will be totally healed up and I can start to sit again.

If all goes well the adapted wheelchair should be ready not too long after Ton’s inspection.

Richie and I are very happy about this, and as if to highlight our happiness the weather is exceptionally good.

Blue skies, sunshine, strawberries,bees and butterflies on the flowers by my bedroom window and it is warm.

Richie took the dogs around the block in a short sleeved t-shirt and Ton, too had a short sleeved shirt on.

He took a photo for his files and to show Doctor Stolwijk the progress, Ton is delighted and very happy to come by weekly when I start to sit again.

I feel optimistic now, that soon I will be able to go out again something I was not convinced of before last week.

Mathilde, lmy physiotherapist was happy to hear the good news when she came round for our exercise session.

Happy days are ahead, know this for sure now, last week Thursday modelling session showed me that sitting in my wheelchair was a realistic prospect.

Something that will really happen and not just a day dream but a real prospect.

I am so happy, will enjoy today very much.

Hope you do too.

Rain said...

First of all POP ART PUGS!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!! :)
Herrad, the news just keeps getting better and better! I can't even picture 1 mm..so tiny! I'm glad you're enjoy nature around you, and strawberries always make me smile too! I bought some more today at the farm. I've been having them with some vanilla yogurt, my take on strawberries and cream I suppose! I found a "bottle your own" wine store, so I got some nice Australian Chardonnays and Shiraz'..very affordable! I really love this town, it's called Summerside. Everyone is so friendly, mind you, they don't sit outside my window yacking at 6am!!! I don't know how, but kudos to you if you find humour in it! Have a great evening!!!
