Slowly the joy from our visit is seeping in again, as my back alternates between getting better and reminding me sharply that it's still recovering from a fairly bad episode. After sitting for any length of time, it's stiff and sore and I need to lean on the cane to get around. Once I've been walking and moving, it's OK for a while, but then standing is too much. So I sit down and the cycle starts again. It's interruptable if I lie down, but I can't always do that, nor do I want to.
Dave took all 3 kids to a model airplane show today (no pics unfortunately), so I had some peaceful time to rest. I'll need it, because the rat race starts all over again tomorrow.
