It's been very windy this afternoon, and I didn't get any yardwork done. Instead, I popped over to Patti's to return a book of Joel's she'd lent me a long time ago. I never did finish it (and had actually forgotten all about it) but now Joel wants his books mailed to Dallas. The amazing thing is that I found it right where it was supposed to be, in the very first place I looked. How often does that happen?!
Patti continues to make significant progress with her recovery.
It appears that all of the swelling in her leg and ankle is gone; they finally look back to normal. Inside the house she is no longer wearing the massive boot, but a much smaller supportive brace that fits inside her shoe, and using a cane instead of a crutch. The PT was helping - not only with mobility and movement but also with the nerve pain - but after just 8 sessions (!) her insurance is making her jump through paperwork hoops to get more approved, so <sigh> she hasn't been able to go this week. Hopefully that will get resolved soon! On the plus side, enough teachers each donated a sick day to her so she's being paid this month.
Shelley and Rob are coming over in a bit so Tom can school him in Creepy's intricacies and other pool maintenance. I'm curious to hear what he has to say about fixing the diving board.
