Lizzy's Dream House

Fantasy~Mer Pinterest

For those of you who are on the third book of the Legend of the Mer series (Song of Sirens) I thought I'd let you in on my Pinterest board Fantasy~Mer.

I've pinned several images which have inspired me not only on the third book, but also the first and second as well.

This is an image of Lizzy's Dream House pin for her dining room.

There are some images for the Prentis Home as well as images of people who might remind me of some of my characters in the book series.

If you're a fan, I hope you'll check it out!  ;)

Walking like a two year old ;)

I never dreamed I would one day have to learn to walk again, but I am.

On the 4th of July I was sent to the hospital by ambulance.  I had an infection which became sepsis.

In 24 hours I lost the use of my legs; not only could I not walk, I couldn't stand either.

I've been blessed to have a Physical Therapist as well as a Nurse coming by to help me out.

I'm so thankful to them both and all those who had a hand in my rehabilitation.

I've had the use of a walker to help me get started since I left the hospital nearly a week later.   

Over the past weekend I used a cane, but I kept trying to make my left foot step down at the same time the cane did.

This only frustrated me because it felt like marching and not walking.

Yesterday I decided to be brave and try walking without any assistance.  It worked!  Lol!

I am not walking very well, but I'm walking!

My legs are still stiff and don't turn easily and I'm not used to the full weight resting on my legs and not on the walker.

Although I'm walking like a two year old, I know I'm blessed to be able to do it again!  ;)
