Week 4: done!

And what a week. With therapy and a couple of doctor's appointments, it was plenty busy. On Thursday I had an appointment in Pasadena and we made a couple of stops on the way home. It all added up to a total of 20 transfers in and out of the chair for the day, which has to be a new record. And after that busy day we had to get up at 5:45 Friday morning for me to get to therapy on time. Needless to say, I was bushed after all that and have been catching up on my sleep since.

Still, I managed to finish a couple of things today, including planting some beans in our little balcony garden. The hummingbirds have found one of the flowers and are around regularly now, and not at all timid. And of course I can always plant some more interesting things that the doctors at the Casa recommended for um...medicinal use.
