Cloudy with rain, heavy at times today. So far I’ve had almost an inch for the day.

The refrigerator repairman came this morning. He replaced the sensor. As he said; hopefully that will fix the problem. If not, it will be something in the electronic board. We will know in a couple of days if the fridge temp gets and stays above freezing.

PT came this afternoon. We had a good session.

Sunny and warm this morning with temperatures in the mid 70’s. Chance of rain/storms again this afternoon. They went around me here at the house yesterday.

After the returned from running errands they dug weeds and grass from the natural areas along the porch and driveway until time to stop to go get takeout for dinner.

This morning Al vacuumed upstairs and down and cleaned my bathroom shower, toilet, and sink. While he did that I dusted.

They left a little after noon to head back down the mountain.

Sunny and warm with highs in the low 80’s. Chance of rain/storms this afternoon.

While Frances and Al are out running errands for me I am doing the laundry. They had a couple of places they wanted to stop at for themselves along the way to the drug and grocery stores and library for me.

My freezer in the garage is plugged into a GFI outlet. For about the third time a power surge tripped the outlet and turned off my freezer. When Al went to their freezer packs in there last evening all my food was spoiled. So, He had to clean up all the melted raw meat mess in the freezer. Fortunately, did not have a lot in there. Stunk to high heavens.

I am going to get George to change the outlet to a regular one before I load up the freezer with food again.

PT came this afternoon for my last session for this week. I had lots of exercises to do until I see her next Monday. Swelling has gone down some, With the exercises and healing going on lots of pain to manage.

Sunny, warm, and breezy today with highs in the low 70’s.

Nancy and Betsy drove up from Winston arriving around 11:15. We visited for awhile then they went into town to pick up takeout from Muddy Creek for lunch. They stayed until 3 pm when Celeste arrived.

I had texted her last night to let her know I had company today but that would be ready to leave by three. She arrived as they were leaving. Did my therapy so now need to go ice.

Mostly cloudy this afternoon with temperatures in the mid 60’s. Chance of thunderstorms this afternoon. We had about 2 tenths of an inch of rain over night.

I am getting around well. Just using the walker as balance. Keeping the knee iced and doing my exercises.  I did a load of laundry. Now that I can put weight on the leg I can balance the laundry basket on the walker instead of having to  push it with the walker.
