The buyer is the one that shot us such a low ball. They finally threw in the towel, made us another offer and it was within five thousand of what we wanted....so we accepted their offer.
A year ago, we had said we would be very happy if we could get what they offered, but this year we set our sights 5K higher. Silly me / us.....
It took two months and two days from listing to accepting their offer. Who said this is a bad time to sell a house? Karen in the Woods sold her house in about a week less time than we sold ours. Answered prayer all around. Why am I always astounded when things like this happens? God is faithful, what else can I say?
Last week was full of physical therapy and doctor visits. He is walking on the treadmill and learning how to breathe.
|Are we having fun yet?|
He works on strength in his legs. Pretty soon he is going to be able to leap tall buildings!
|John with his "coaches"|
|It's mandatory and in the rule book|
Don't tell anyone, but that recumbent bike is not fun. Next time I am going to get on the regular bike. I'm just too short for the recumbent. I have not done these machines since my knee replacements and it really felt good to be at it again.
It seems that John is right on the line between diabetes and not. His physician is sending him/us to meet with a dietitian and a nurse for "training." I look at this as a perfect opportunity to re-learn how to shop, cook and eat the healthful way.
I need to loose weight. I have lost twenty-five pounds by using Zija and as a result of John's struggles. I still need to get rid of more pounds.
John's weight loss while he was in intensive care and at the long (short for him) term adult rehab hospital brought his weight down to where it should be. But his doctor said if they did a body mass test, he would have too much fat and not enough muscle. Guess where the fat is? So he needs to loose his middle and gain muscle. I probably could do some of the same, but shave the weight also.
Friday was vet day for our cat Noah. When John came home from the rehab hospital, he and his buddy, Noah reunited and John mentioned that Noah had mats behind his ears.
We were so busy running to doctor appointments and physical therapy that I gave Noah's mats no thought until last Thursday. I called the vet and asked if she could take a look at them since I was unable to cut the mats out without cutting flesh.
Friday, we went to Hillview Veterinary Clinic. Noah has been a patient from the day Hillview opened and feels that he has the run of the clinic and hospital since he would stay there when John and I were at llama shows.
This time Noah knew there was a big problem and decided to take up residence under John's chair. Finally, he came out and let vet Jennifer look at his "bumps" behind his ears.
Jennifer began to remove the mats, but then the skin came off too. It was not a pretty sight. But soon Noah was "fixed up" and sported a new neck band that remained around his neck until yesterday. Today, he is looking as handsome as any twelve year old cat.
Today, Oliver and Olivia went to the spa. They were so neglected while John was sick. Olivia got a drastic hair cut. Oliver lost some hair, but not much. He is much easier to comb out and does not mat like Olivia.
I think that is the last of the problems that resulted from John's "adventure."
And this is the last paragraph of a too long blog.
