Sweet Time With Helpful Grand Daughter
September 10, 2013

Last night around 11:30 I took the prescribed pain medication.  I slept all night with very little discomfort.  The main difficulty was just maneuvering in the bed.  Woke up about 8:30 and took the pain medication at 9:00.  I am not taking the full dosage and there is very little pain.  There is a lot of swelling.  I can take the bandages off at noon tomorrow, so I know that will help the swelling. 

My daughter-in-law brought my grand daughter over this morning about 10:00.  I had fixed my breakfast and eaten by then.  She is home schooled so she brought her work and we had school here today.  She helped me wash my hair first and then did her reading assignment.  With just the two of us here all day and the TV off, it was great to have normal discussions with her.  I probably asked for a few repeats, but very few,  Thanks to the Cochlear Implant! 

Next my grand daughter did her history lesson while I worked on the blog about my surgery.  I had her read part of the history lesson to me.  She is studying the Constitution.  We discussed that some and then she mixed up a fruit salad for us.  She worked on her science while I got out a jigsaw puzzle to work on.  Spelling was her next subject and we worked on that.  She is a hard worker both on her school work and things to be done for me.  She is quick to sense my needs and always offered to help. 

She got out the things for lunch and set the table.  I cooked the grilled cheese sandwiches, but she did the rest.  We had a good time visiting over lunch.  The afternoon was relaxing with bird watching and jewelry making for my grand daughter while I worked on the puzzle.

While we checked on the birds after she filled the feeders, I spotted this bird.  Later she saw two of the out there.
Later we watched as this Golden Fronted Woodpecker built a new home.

The hole is getting deeper.  I really appreciate the woodpecker building this where I have a good view.
We had another blowing rain this afternoon and we are due more of them all week!
Before my son came to pick up his daughter, she made some jewelry for her sister and herself.

How could my day have been any better?


  1. You will recover quickly with such great help!

  2. Sounds like an awesome day. I treasure those times with my granddaughters.
