Hello to all; it's good to be back!
Thanks to everyone for your good wishes and special thanks to Marly for her encouraging calls and visits. Her friendship is valued and appreciated. Also, thanks to good buddy RitaDallas for her phone calls, too.
My wonderful caregiver, Maria, is here with me 7 days a week. She is so sweet to put up with my fractured Spanish and has learned to make some "comfort foods" like grilled cheese sandwiches, French toast and spaghetti with home-made meat sauce. These were unfamiliar to her and the spaghetti was such a hit that she included it in her family's Chrstmas Eve celebration dinner.
My foot and most of my right leg are in a plaster cast, but the ankle is healing well and the cast should come off in a week or 2. I'm in a modiied wheelchair now, but will probably be using crutches later.
Best wishes for a happy and safe New Year!
