Sorry if you're getting tired of seeing the progress on my cardinal but I like to document my progress and it's my blog after all!
I beaded in between Dr. appointments yesterday and hair (dye job!) today. He's coming along and now I just need to finish his tail feather and branch. I did decide for sure that I'm doing six birds and six butterfly's and each will be mounted on canvas. I'll call the collection 'Feather and Wings' or 'Wings and Feathers'. Go figure, right!
So news from Bob's hip Dr. is he's thinking it's Bob's back and not necessarily the prosthesis in the leg bone. There is some "increased activity" in the leg bone and the replacement joint but he doesn't feel that's causing Bob's leg pain. Bob has days where he has NO pain at all and other days that he can't walk at all! So far yesterday and today he's been pretty much pain free. He's scheduled for a MRI of his lumbar spine next week and then he'll see the Dr. the middle of July. It's just a process of elimination so this is a start. Guess we'll just play it by ear unless of course I shoot him first! They shoot horses don't they!
Speaking of horses, we're getting the DVD 'True Grit' this week from Netflex! We can't wait to watch it being the western/cowboy fans that we are!!
On another note, I am thoroughly enjoying listening to 'Between Shades of Gray' by Ruta Sepetys. The story is basically about a young girl who along with her family are exiled from their homeland by Stalin and the suffering they incurred. The young girl, Lina, is also an artist who documents their life during this horrid time by drawing! I'm glad I'm listening to this book rather than reading it so I can listen while I sew, clean or drive! I'm so anxious on one hand to finish the book but on the other hand it's one of those books you don't want to end! Do pick up a copy..it's very well written by Ms. Sepetys!
