Touch of Autumn

Well, here she is – all 20-inch-seat of her!  Isn't she just beautiful?!!  We call her "Chairy"…short for "Chariot" and "Cherry" – because she is such a sweet ride!

I can sit in it for short periods of time.  Yesterday Doug sat me right next to Isaac's recliner, and after I had been there for a few minutes, Isaac t-u-r-n-e-d his head to his left and loooooooked at me…as if to say "I thought I heard you over there!"  Isaac very rarely turns his head to the left, so when he does, it's for a good reason. 🙂

Today, I was able to trim and peel carrots:

This is how far I got:

Not a marathon peeling session, but a little bit is better than nothing.  I was desperately trying to get those last 9 carrots done, but the pain was just too much.  No need to prolong the healing time for something like carrots! 🙂

I had planned to get to my chiropractor today, but we forgot he closes at 11 a.m. on Thursdays.  So I will call tomorrow for an appointment.  He is always able to take me in right away.  I will be glad to get everything aligned, so that the healing can continue in a better way.

Isaac is really enjoyed having Doug home during the daylight hours.  Doug is enjoying working at night.  I am just happy that they are both happy. 🙂

My mom brought me this gorgeous sunflower last week!  The colors are just amazing for a silk flower.

I have it tucked in between the dresser and the nightstand, so I can see it all the time.  Since the temperatures here are still in the 90's, and I can't get outside anyway, it's the only little touch of autumn I'm experiencing right now. :)  I know cooler days are ahead.  I just have to be patient.

Thanks for your encouraging comments and for your prayers.  I know God is working miracles all around me.  I can't see all that He is doing, but I know He is faithfully fulfilling the work that He has started in me.

Wishing you blessings this day,

Alesha

  2. Slowly but surly. God is healing as we are all praying for you. Glad you got a sweet ride! When I had my broken leg and was not allowed to stand on it I used my computer chair. Amazing what you can do from a sitting position. Hugs and prayers as you heal.

  3. I can relate to the wheelchair thing! Here’s something that might make you laugh–I tell strangers all the time that I have a lot of people that “push me around.” Think about it….lol. They always give me the strangest look of horror when I say that! I love it! 🙂 I also get teased b/c my wheelchair is a pediatric one–33 years old. Oh well.
