Here's a photo of a skeleton for Halloween. It belongs to Bill! This is a photo of the X-ray they took of the implant in his finger. Do you see it there in the middle? I'm living with a Bionic Man. It is a pyrocarbon implant. Does it look a little scary? It does to me!

He is doing fine though. Attending PT twice a week now and gaining lots of motion in his hand. He still has to use the braces during the day and while sleeping though until he has full motion and the OK to use his hand by the doctor.

It makes life a little bit more hectic around here than normal. Watching baby Mae is not as easy for me as it could be if he was able to hold her more, feed her and change those diapers! (Is this part of your plan Mr. Bill?) But, seriously, he is doing really well and does many things one-handed. Before we know it he will be back to normal (as normal as a Bionic Man can be, that is) and I will have him hauling gravel in the yard and weed-eating.

I got my daughter Kimberly here to help me wheel barrow loads of gravel yesterday. I hope I didn't make her body too stiff for the rest of the week. But it was nice having her help. I told her that I was sorry for her that I am OCD because I can't just do "part" of the job. Once I start I have to finish. There is no "waiting until tomorrow to finish the rest" in my vocabulary. I am a determined person with a goal in mind always. And my goal yesterday was to create two new walk-ways with the gravel. Mission accomplished.

And then we went to Oktoberfest in town and celebrated with food, drink, music and a bon-fire. It was a nice way to end a day of hard work. Thanks for the help Girlie! I really appreciated it. And you know me: it takes a lot for me to ask for help. But, I am learning to and appreciating the help that I receive. I am open to unlimited goodness!


  1. oktoberfest sounds fun!! yikes on the hand...does not look like it could have been fun getting it in there but glad he is healing...

  2. It certainly looks unusual, that implant. Not something you'd see in any ole' skeleton!

    Hard work, followed by fun, best way to be! Some of the best sort of days.

    Hope you are well, Teri! Big hugs!

  3. You're welcome. I figure the more help you can get, then the faster the project gets finished, thus satisfying that OCD feeling of having to get it done.

  4. It's back now :) The case of the vanishing blogpost...
