We had another 2.8 tremor last night around 10 of eleven followed by a small one sometime after midnight. The 2.8 shook the house but nothing fell off the walls and flat surfaces/

Foggy and rainy today. One private home helper came this morning from 7 to 10 and JoAnn came at noon and will stay until 8:30 or so.

Shes going in town to pick up wings for dinner from one of favorite restaurants.

My Home Instead sitter is here today. I’ve had the same one during the week and I love her. She is great with Colin and attentive to what I need.

We did a load of clothes and emptied the dish washer.

My muscle spasms have come back starting last night. I called my physician and he is phoning some thing new for me to try for the pain. The spasms called down a little this afternoon.

Partly cloudy today with temperatures in the low 70’s.

Another warm, fall day with lots of sunshine and calm. Highs in the 70’s.

I had a private pay this morning from 7 – 10. She fed Colin then helped me with my breakfast. She took Colin out several times. I have my same Home Instead person this afternoon. I fixed a sandwich to put in the fridge and had her put my ice tea on my side table before she left.

OT came around 10:45 for my shower. I ate lunch and now hanging out until she gets here this afternoon. I paid  couple of bills and did a few things at my desk.

The nurse and PT came this morning. Then we left for Winston for my haircut. A nice ride down and back.

It was 70 degrees down there and it’s in the mid 60’s here with lots of sunshine.

Al’s cousin Doug has a furniture repair business. They live in Seagrove, NC where Al is from. He and his wife and one of their sons drove up this morning for him to repair my sofa. The seat on the side I sit on was sinking making it so that I sat in a hole.

He and his son took it apart from the bottom and added a foam cushion to my side and the other end. He used some type of webbing material on my end to stop the springs from sinking down. Very nice of them to drive this far to make the repairs.

Al drove me down to Winston for my doctor appointment with my infectious disease doctor. They removed the picc line. No more infusions of antibiotics.

Warm down in Winston but only the mid 50’s here with some sprinkles and breezy.
