Lauren to the Rescue
I have been feeling pretty well. But the last few weeks my toes have hurt on one foot. I think it is from overdoing it on the exercise. I exercise whenever I’m bored so I exercise a lot. My mom told me to take it easy on the exercise until my foot stopped hurting. So now I have been a little more bored, if that is possible, because I’m not exercising as much. Oh well, that just means I get to talk more which drives my mom nuts. Ha-ha.
A couple of weeks ago we got a lot of snow here although not as much as the Boston area. We got 18 inches of snow with winds blowing 40 miles an hour and wind chills 20 below zero. That morning my dad was putting the snow blower into the back of the truck to take to the store and he slipped on ice and broke his arm. He just had surgery on Friday. They couldn’t do it any sooner because of the swelling. He broke his right arm so he can’t do much. I feel very bad for him and keep praying that it will heal soon.
I’ve had to help my dad button his shirt, put on his socks, open the pop up and open up containers with his pills in them. The only thing he is able to do with his arm is to write if possible. Other than that he cannot use it at all. It was a very bad break and they had to order a special plate and screws to fix it up. So the doctors were very clear to him that he could do NOTHING with it.
So thanks to him I’ve got a new job to do. I don’t mind it at all. It gives me something to do. It also gives me someone else to talk to. I feel very useful and I haven’t felt like this in a long time. I like feeling this way. It makes me feel good to help someone else.
There is one more thing my dad needs help doing, and that’s driving. Now I tell everyone that I am his new driver. Ha-ha. (Not too bad for someone living with wolfram syndrome.)
