Have you ever noticed when someone asks you, “What’s new?” or “What have you been up to lately?” it’s hard to answer the question? You know you’ve been busy. Days are filled with activity and weeks start running together. Once you sit back and think about it, things start to become clearer and you remember all the stuff you’ve done!
Well, we’ve had one of those stretches! Mommy officially graduated from PT. She will continue on her own and hopefully keep progressing with the nightly walks she takes with Daddy. It’s probably a good thing her PT is over because we found out Daddy’s surgery will be on Friday, April 29. It will fix his ruptured bicep, so he won’t be able to use his right arm for a while. That will be tough because he is right handed. Ringo and I are going to have a sleep over at our friend, Jennifer’s house for the first few days after the surgery. The doctor said Daddy will have some discomfort, so he will have some “happy” pills to help. Mommy will also take care of him. When Ringo and I come home, we will help, too.
Last Friday, Mommy and Daddy went to a concert. They saw Pat Benatar, Mommy’s favorite female singer. They had a great time.
The next morning, Mommy and Daddy went to a Donate Life Ambassador recognition brunch. They met a very nice man who was an outstanding keynote speaker and kidney transplant recipient just like Mommy. His name was Bruce King. It was a beautiful day, so we spent some time outside when they got home.
We celebrated Rudy’s Birthday on Sunday, April 24. He would have been 12 years old. We think of him often and really miss him, especially Mommy. He was such a cool little guy with tons of energy (even more than little bro, Ringo!). Without Rudy, there would be no Rudy’s Little World (or Blog-spot)!
Along with all of the activities I just told you about, we have been doing stuff around the house to prepare for Daddy’s surgery. He has been working on a massive project for school. We have also filled a few book orders and prepared for an event in May. So, I guess we have been busy! Now that I remember all of this, do you think anyone will ask me, “What’s new?”
