Subject: RE: April 2013 Showers wash away clutter!!!!!!!!
Been meaning to post here lately, but keep running out of time. Today's caregivers class was sandwiched between yesterday's podiatrist appointment (for Tom) and tomorrow's appointment with his primary care. Got some suggestions from his podiatrist that may make Tom less susceptable to cellulitis. More work for me, but, hey, that's what I'm here for. Hope we can get some useful suggestions tomorrow from Tom's PCP.

It's frustrating. Ginkgo could really help Tom's peripheral artery disease, but it would be dangerous for him to take it because he already takes Plavix (blood thinner) and his blood pressure runs low and really can't take the possibility of it going lower.

Tom did get a good workout from his therapist today while I was at class -- transitioning (again) to using a cane. Still, it will be safer this Friday for him to still use the walker to get to the Press Room session.

For some reason I'm really tired and achy today. I didn't think I did THAT much raking and moving leaves around yesterday while Tami & Jason were finishing up restacking the firewood we're keeping out of the way of the driveway getting "done" next week. Over the weekend I got the forsythia and some other plants out of the "holding bed" (loam pile) which my driveway guy will move for me before he can start work.

I've also got most of the leaves removed from the back beds and what passes for a lawn. I hope I haven't lost too many plants because I haven't been able to do that for a few years.

I hope to fill a planter and get the borage planted today, too. And get a load of laundry going. Maybe a shovel full of sedums from the loam pile to the rockery...

Then I'm going to go upstairs and under-react by watching a couple episodes of "White Collar". Dinner is leftovers, so that won't take a lot of time. I really could take a nap...
