This is getting too long to load for some people - so here is part two, as proposed by WYSIWYG - Áine's Recovery - in 6/8 with bulldozer accompaniment.

Don't post here, post there.

Just had a phone conversation with Áine - all this way off in England. She sounds great, and is raring to go. Layne is going to do the planting and she'll be supervising, that's the plan anyway.

She's still not allowed near the computer, but she's going to be having a go at the guitar again today.

Great to talk to her. So glad she's on the mend.

Your mission, should you choose accept it:

Convince Áine to adopt a style of gardening that won't tear her back all to pieces.

There is one site that might just help, all about container gardening, here, that has enough purdy pictures and daring ideas to make any gardener drool.

Just got a call from Layne! She is home and not too groggy, actually said hello and bragged about being able to walk from the car into the house! She is in less pain than she's been since this all started.

Dharmabum, they were really surprised to find a package on the porch and were blown away by the beauty and generosity of your gift!

Also, they asked me to pass on their thanks to everyone until she is able to be here, herself.

Wonderful news! Thanks!

I do understand. It's about getting "older", partly, and refusing to admit we can't do the things we did when we were sprouts. I vividly remember the last time I tried to do a "round-off" in the yard...........hell, just taking the garbage out is an adventure in Back Pain anymore and I don't have herniated discs or any other diagnosis (except for being an upright, 2 legged primate)

Then, I watch these people who are 20+ years older than I am, and a WHOLE LOT more overweight do dog agility trials......gives a lot of meaning to Guts.

Hang in Aine, and we hope we hear good news this evening!

They aren't C-U........But she can't do it to the "overwhelming" extent she's used to. I tried to tell her that after a few weeks she could do the easy stuff, but Aine's a kind of "root hog or die" girl and she has a hard time accepting less than a full blown, balls to the wall attack!!! Good Lord, she's upset she can't "build her rock retaining wall!"

I tell ya' what though C-U.....You have some great ideas there and you need to sell her on them! She's probably going to feel pretty good and want to do more than watch (by the end of the first week, I'd broken every rule....but Karen stayed on my ass for about another month and I managed to please the docs).

Why no gardening? All that need to bend over and twist?

How about container gardening? And raised bed gardening? I use a wheelchair and can't get down on my hands and knees to garden, but I have a little herb/flower patch planted in a half whiskey barrel, so the earth is the same height as my lap, more or less. Basically the same phyisical requirements as houseplants, but outdoors, in the sunlight, fresh breezes, and all that jazz.

Geez, Louise! if the docs ban gardening all together, their out of their gourd! ;-)

She did say she'd try working with houseplants and I am sending her a link to my favourite place for them, with all kinds of rare and exotic ones which have gorgeous foliage and blooms. She thought at least that way she could still play in the dirt a little bit.:-)

I told her, just before they whelled her into surgery, to visualise herself at home, post-surgery, feeling well and free of pain and doing something she loves to do, which is allowed by the docs! Not gardening!**BG**

It's a beautiful image...hearing her pain-free and able to get around sans wheelchair.

Specific time, if you want to beam some extra-special thoughts, is set for 8a, Texas time, but it's not a hard and fast time, so it oculd be as much as an hour later.

She sounds good, lots better than she was. We had a real talk about her NOT doing any gardening this year; that's gonna be a tough one, but she's already thinking about other things she could do. Any suggestions would be welcome, just remember they need to be lightweight.:-)

Well, she sounds about ten years lighter. She answered her own phone just like a grownup and she's cracking jokes and is nervous as hell about the surgery but ready for it.

Only regret is she won't be lifting big rocks in the garden this spring, so I suggested she find some inexpensive assistance. But it ain't the same.

Good luck, lady TGG!! We're peppering you with the best of thoughts.

I talked with Aine this evening and she's in great spirits. Nervous, but ready. She really hates the fact that she's going to miss "Spring Planting" but I'm sure there will be some flowers and things that the "Dear Hubby" will plant. She got some of the "Rules and Regulations" from the Doc today and like I have said, if she comes out of this feeling half as good as I did, the toughest part will be playing by the rules.

Also, we should hear something by tomorrow night and she's expected to come home then too if she gets into the OR early enough. Send them good thoughts folks!!!

I talked with Aine this evening and she is certainly appreciative of all the support from her many friends here at the 'Cat!!

AND


She is in much better shape. Her voice is almost normal and she laughed a lot too! She has some good meds which are relieving some of the pain but moreover I think she feels better because she can see light at the end of the tunnel. We all know how much better a person can feel because decisions have been made. In Aine's case, she went for so long with no diagnosis and after being hassled around, she has found a doctor she trusts and says he has a sense of humor to boot! Now, after all the diagnosis and decisions have been made, it helps the mind a lot simply by being able to see an end to the pain! She went in for the pre-op testing today and was even able to stand well enough to get an x-ray.

Her surgery is scheduled for 8 AM next Wednesday so in less than a week relief will be at hand. Everyone seems confident and Aine's attitude couldn't be better. Today we even talked about other things including birdwatching! And that patented laugh can be heard which shows just how much better and how ready she is. Let's keep the good thoughts headin' for Texas folks!!!!

I'm afraid I lost touch with this thread and Áine's status for a day or two while I was in transition from Portland to San Diego [Hey, Amos!]. I'm very distressed by some of the horrendous-sounding prognostications and, then, rendered a bit hopeful by some of Spaw's more recent posts.

Really, all I can do is add my voice to the chorus singing the praises of sweet Áine and encircling her with our love, prayers, and positive energy. If a community of caring friends counts in curing what ails you, then I know, Áine, you have a great shot at getting back to your usual beautiful form. Please make it soon!

Re: Drinking lots of water... I recently saw a tv program aimed at teachers -- discussing the physical needs and psychological needs of adolescents, and the expert being interveiwed said drinking enough water is vital. She pointed out that the nerve cells in the brain (and in the spine) are basically producing electricity, and water is the best conductor of electricity, so it stands to reason that getting enough water will make the whole nervous system run more smoothly. So what Guest Mgarvey said makes sense.

She (the expert) gave a couple of rules of thumb:

1) to find out how much water you should drink, take your weight and divide by three: You should drink one ounce of water for every three pounds of weight. The 'official' health tip of 8 cups a day is right if you weigh 190 pounds, but if you're less than that, that would be too much...

And 2) don't drink large amounts of water all at once (most of it will go straight to your bladder and out of your body, that way). Instead, just swallow a couple of mouthfuls every 45 minutes or so during your waking hours.

I started following this advice last week, and I immediately noticed two things: my lips stopped chapping, and my nasal congestion due to alergies stopped to almost nil.
