Quick update

My rose bush is beautiful right now.

I take short walks around the yard ~
It's good to keep moving.
Even when it's physically hard~
Each day I'm improving.

Typing now with seven fingers ~
Instead of five.
Crazy mobility lingers ~
Still it's good to be alive.








Update: I have a June 24th appointment to see a neurologist. My left hand, arm, and leg still have issues. It gets frustrating but I try to remain hopeful and cheerful. I'm so blessed in other ways.

We're definitely into warm weather. It rains every other day, and then turns muggy and humid. I put the air conditioning on, around 75 degrees... for this week at least. Where I live might be in the 90's one week, but then back to the 70s the next week. It's always been like this for as long as I can remember.

My hope is that everyone is healthy and enjoying life. If you are battling something, let me know so I can keep you in my thoughts, (smile). Please bear with me. I'm not writing much lately. I hope that will change soon. Be well.

Love, 
Dixie

  2. So nice to hear from you Dixie. I hope you soon get all the movement back with a full recovery. Your rose is beautiful. Not battling anything in particular, just the aches and pains which often accompany aging.

    1. Thanks, Jo. The rose has a scent that reminds me of cotton candy.

  3. Still praying for you and that they will find answers on June 24. Hang on to that great attitude. It will get you through this.
    We finally turned hot and humid last week. I'm hiding inside.

    1. Thank you, Alex. That humidity is the realer killer. I wait for a nice rain that will take it down a few notches.

      Hiding inside - yes - sounds about right.

  7. I pray for you, Dixie Dear. I'm always battling something. Your roses are beautiful. It's very hot and dry here in Northern Florida. My roses do not look happy, but with a lack of rain, so dries up Lake Junebug. Thus, I have more grass in the backyard. We're in the nineties every day now and might get to the upper seventies at night.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Bless your heart. I've complained too soon. I remember visiting my Aunt in Orlando - scorching days. Be careful when you go out.

  8. The air is sticky in my home town too. We hope for rain, then miss the sun. Never miss the heat though, lol.

    I'm glad you are improving somewhat :)

  10. Have the doctors already ruled out MS, Dixie? Something about your symptoms just made that thought pop into my head.

    1. I'm thinking the doctor will check at the 6-24 appointment. I thought that too, and it's a bit scary. I try to keep my mind clear right now.

  11. Our weather is an up and down variety also...until mid-June, then it will be hot and muggy pretty reliably.

    Prayers for you. I hope the doctors find something easily treatable that gets you back to 100% fast.

    1. Dez, I know exactly what you mean. I do tend to let my reading other blogs chase away the negative thoughts. They are the real killers.

  20. Tonight I shall add you to my prayers... My spouse lost use of her right arm and hand a three years ago. It's been a struggle, and still is. But now she has full function back, but the nerve pain is still lingering. But like you, she says a a day waking up is a blessing in itself...

    peace and love
