Weekly Ephemera #61

  • Mom continues to recover.  We visited the bone doctor this week and they were happy with the rate of healing and told Mom she could start taking off the sling she'd been wearing since the accident.  She's both happy and a bit cautious with that.  It means the physical therapist can now start working on her arm which she is dreading.

    We finally set up someone affordable to come in a clean Mom's house every couple weeks.  This will help Mom a lot.

    We also set up a Life Alert like service ("I've fallen and I can't get up!").  She now has a necklace with a call button she can use if she falls and hurts herself again.  Gives us all a little peace of mind.
  • We, fortunately, are not under a heat dome at this moment.
    I didn't walk much this week.  A health issue popped up and I am still waiting on test results.  I will probably talk more about this once I get some answers.  I did manage to walk 10.9 miles (17.5 km) before I decided it was wise to let things settle out.
  • I finished "Severance".  A very interesting psychological thriller.  A second season is coming once the writers and actors get the contracts they deserve.

    I started watching the second season of "Foundation" before I realized it was episodic and only one episode was available (D'Oh) so I started watching "Silo".  After a couple episodes, I like it.  The more I watch TV adaptations of books I've read the more I realize my reading retention sucks.
  • I celebrated our wedding anniversary by making a dentist appointment for the Wife.  She said it was 'perfect'.  I did this as I had my check up.  I've been suffering from a sensitive tooth and I will be visiting a root canal specialist in a few weeks.  The tooth has a root canal that is twelve years old so I suspect either a crack or another bothersome root.
