Not positive but I was told today I should get to go home next Thursday.  I did really good in PT today. In fact I shocked him!

Surgical update one week out. I have a good amount of pain but it is definitely improving. PT is hard but necessary so I do it. I had my first shower today. Bliss. And that is all I know.

I'm having my right hip replaced Thursday.  I'm all packed for re-hab.  Three days in the hospital and then re-hab here at La Posada.  My room is reserved and all ready for me.  I'm so glad this is happening.  When the pain is so bad you can't exercise it's time to go and that is what happened.  I have lots of help and do not need a thing I don't have.

I will try to post but don't make any promises.  Facebook is so much easier.  I'll only have my phone and not my computer with me.  

You can email me if you want, it's on the sidebar.  I'll answer as soon as I can.  The PT will be intense and that's a good thing.

Other than that my life is still wonderful!

I'm posting this photo so you can see how the face is holding up.  It's been a couple of years now and this is not retouched in any way.  No cream on the eyes because that tightens up those wrinkles when I put it on.  

My hair is finally growing in too.  Boy that was tough losing all the hair.  I guess all in all it was a small price to pay but it still was a royal pain.  I hated wearing a wig.  Itchy and hot.  When I'd get home it was a tossup which came off first, the wig or the bra! lol

Tonight the mayor of the pool and his bride are coming up here to dinner.  I'm looking forward to seeing them.

Have a lovely day y'all.   I will too for sure!

Yesterday we had "Yappy Hour"
in the bar... Of course Roche' 
decided to go!

There were treats and prizes and about 25 dogs and one cute rock!  Roche' ordered a Rolling Rock beer and requested rock and roll music.  After his beer he got a little "boulder"!

Sorry for the grainy photos.  
I took photos from the newsletter.

We had SUCH a great time!  It started with a cocktail hour with passed Hors d'oeuvres followed by a lovely delicious dinner of beef tenderloin and then it was off to the casino.  It was play money of course but there were prizes for the winners at the end of the night and drawings for prizes every half hour.  I had a wonderful evening.  

There is always something fun to do here.  I wish everyone could have as much fun as I'm having!

So last night's movie was LBJ.  I had never seen it and I did like the movie but I couldn't help thinking about how much Sarge disliked that man.  Not for his civil rights bill but over Viet Nam.  He always said we could have easily won that war (war - not police action as they like to call it) and how so many died for nothing and we ran with our tails between our legs and left the South Vietnamese to fend for themselves, horrible outcome.  When we went there he truly believed it was the right thing to do.  Right or wrong that's what he thought.  It was a tossup which he disliked more, LBJ or Jane (Hanoi) Fonda.  Then he died from Agent Orange.  So tragic.  73 years old.  He should have had many more good years.  He worked hard all his life for that retirement and was cheated out of it.  

Anyway I did enjoy the movie and got to see Ryan too.  Now I'm off to see Dr. Wacks for the second part of my physical.  I have lost weight.  I can't wait to see how much!

Have a great day y'all.  I will too for sure...

Just a bit of the wildlife I saw having my coffee on the screened porch.  Plenty to look at here!  The iguana will get lots bigger  They sort of scare me but I don't get close.  There was a fourth bird, a brown one that looked just like the white ones but I didn't get a good shot of her.  They were pecking at the ground, getting bugs I suppose.  Very busy anyway!

Today I am about to go play Rummy Kue or however you spell that.  We have between six and eight that play and it's lots of laughs. 

Have a great Monday!  I shall too!

Well it's Sunday and not too much goes on, I'm having dinner with the duck but other than that just chores around the apartment (which I needed to do anyway).  I sat outside early this morning and listened to the birds busy themselves starting their day.  Funny little creatures.  There aren't many crows and they are my favorite, so smart.  Ugly but really smart.  If you are nice to them they remember you and aren't afraid the next time.  I used to be afraid of all birds but I'm not so much any more.

Hope your Sunday is totally tits.  Mine is quiet but lovely!

So last night's movie was "An Inspector Calls".  I watched the whole thing but didn't get it.  I even googled it when I got home.  It is supposedly a classic but I don't think it makes sense.  If you've seen it and know please let me know.

If you are on Facebook I'm Bonnie Closser Cordle.  

Tonight is trivia instead of Bingo because the Big Bingo they have monthly is Saturday.  Saturday is going to be a busy one.  Bridge after dinner and bingo before.  I swear I never thought I'd play bridge again but I am enjoying it.  Sarge would be shocked! lol

Oh I almost forgot!  I played Maj yesterday with my gals from Palm Beach.  I didn't win but I loved seeing them and playing.  We have a game next Wednesday too.

That's it from my world.  Hope you have a great day.  I know I will!
