Robservations for April 6, 2023

6 Apr

What’s going on this week in Rob’s world? I continue to heal up pretty quickly I guess. I can do short distances on the cane or longer walks with the walker. The snow this morning has set me back as far as walks go. It is tricky in the snow with a walker.

I have been in a very negative head space since I cracked my femur. It has been very isolating, especially on top of my dialysis. My life was dependent on friends (and Home Care) for meals and dog walks. Now I am able to get up and get into the kitchen or out for a drive. It feels nice to be able to see people again.

I did have a few amazing people going out of their way to help me. Some stayed over-night at the beginning to make sure I was okay. Lots of folks took the dogs for a walk or two. Kootenay Kritters has been amazing. The hounds have met a lot of new friends.

I am very thankful for all of the people that have been here to help me out. It may not seem like it sometimes but that is just my bad personality taking over. It is hard to explain the feelings of total isolation and being incapable of doing anything. My friends who have been delivering this rag are amazing, week after week.

Anyways, I am hoping for no more major health setbacks. Between the heart surgery, femur, multiple myeloma and kidney failure, it has been a tough past 5 years. I do not wish that on anyone.
