Life is good

and calm at the moment.  No outbursts.  His glucose is still running between 192 and 220.  Too high.  But he doesn't want to change his meds.  He's having a lot of pain, but working through it.

I'm playing more.  Being creative in my studio.

Spent all of last week at my sister's and she's coming down tomorrow to spend the rest of the week here.

We are going to play with dichroic glass in the kiln.  Cutting and shaping glass.  Experimenting.  What we do best.

About 8 years ago, she was in an accident where her left leg was run over twice by her own car.  She fell on ice, the car rolled over it, then reversed and rolled back over it.  It's a miracle that she did not lose her leg when it happened.  As she ages, she's having more pain and problems with it - not sleeping well.  She's not in a wheelchair yet and is able to still get around...but we can tell that it's getting worse as she ages.

So I told her that while we can still drive, still get together, still play, we need to do so as much as we can.

Seems to take my mind off what's going on here when I can be of help to her.  And hubby seems to understand and doesn't mind.  In fact, when she is here, he is in a great mood.

We live about 3 hours apart, and are both working towards an eventual goal of being in the same town as our mom and youngest sister.  It's a goal.

Should be a good week.  Very much needed.

Sounds like you've had a wonderful week. Good for you! It does indeed sound like a miracle that you sister didn't lose her leg. Great that you can still get together, and have a goal of moving closer.
