Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

This is why I dread this week of the year

PT for me was good. They did some pain management that really helped. I've promptly not done my exercises but I worked from 9 Am until 9 PM with a 30 minute break and over 100% productivity, including 5 evals, which included one lady who screamed at me that she hated me and hit me with both hands because I didn't want her to walk around on the cuffs of her pants that she wouldn't pull up after she peed because she was angry that I suggested she try herself. It was charming and I can't wait to treat her again. Although I suspect she'll sign herself out AMA just like she did elsewhere a few weeks ago, and I suspect there is a distinct reason why, called I think she has a drinking problem.

But I'm so, so tired. I didn't get home until 10, I still have to put a sheet and blankets and pillowcaseson my bed, I should shower, and my meds are just barely starting to work and I have to be up at 5 for more PT.

So, I should shut up, but at least I finally believe my ankle is going to heal. I'm going to wean from the cast boot to another brace in about 2 weeks and then as my ankle is stronger I'll get off the cast boot at work and then eventually teh brace, I assume.

For now, I have a cat demanding love and I can't blame her; I've worked 30 some hours in the last 3 days. Plus the commute, plus counseling, plus PT.

More tomorrow, if I survive.

I see by the next post that you survived and have hope for healing!
You are a WORK HORSE! Of course, you're tired but it reflects that you are a capable, conscientious person! Yeah for your work ethic! And your character, values and ideals!

I hope you and kitty get a lot more warm healing reassuring lovin' and some cat naps, too. I know that's a big "hope" but...I pray for you and "hope" you see the upward trend!

"And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us." Romans 1b-5

Can you get Silent Night or Away in a Manger looping in your head?

Important things to ponder in our hearts as Mary did:

“So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.”

Luke 2:16-20

Man! Those evals are the worst. I had an angry lady once start pushing me and calling me all sorts of awful bitchy names right in the middle of a shower transfer. Naked, wet, and so pissed because I wasn't "doing it for her". She was MOD A for a stand step transfer, but she thought I should be doing all the lifting or get a LIKO.

I got so mad I almost couldn't keep it together. I was just thinking how dumb she was to attack me midtransfer! I was so worried she was going to fall...
Anyway, we hit it off in the end (like 2 days later), and she ended up buying me a reuben sandwich at the local deli during a community outing.
