With the help of a cane, we made it through all of our shopping but my muscles near my kidney on my right side are very sore. I am using the cane in my right hand. The good news is that the muscles in my left hip are just fine now that I am using a cane instead of swinging my left leg out to keep balanced. Somehow, I can't win!
It felt great to be able to get around and to be out into the world.
Mom is having problems with her Comcast email account so I need to somehow get up to her apartment this morning. There is an elevator but then it is a long walk. Later, we will probably just go to lunch and not do a lot of walking.
I need to continue to improve. The orchestra concert is coming up, Shelley and Russ are getting married in two weeks, the Irish Fiddling group has several gigs lined up and Mother's Day is around the corner.
Mom loves to go to casinos. She used to go to them on a regular basis before she moved closer to me but there are no casinos near us. We are going to visit my dad on Monday, change his flowers, clean the plaque she had made in memory of her brother then drive into the Sierra foothills to an Indian casino. She is so excited that she is not sleeping! Michael is going with us so he can drive as it is just a bit too much for me.
I so hope my knee is better by Monday and I don't think I will be doing a lot of walking around the casino. We are not big gamblers but we are so happy that we are able to give this gift to mom. She will be in heaven!
