Summer is finally here.  I forget how hot it gets when I wish summer would come.  But I love the swim exercises I go to.  If nothing unexpected comes up, I will get in the full 5 days this week.  Have missed a day here and there for doctor appointments.

I feel so good all day on swim days.  I need to exercise on weekends or days off swimming, but I have no drive to do it.

Looking so forward to vacation in LA.  One month from today I will get to begin seeing the sights there.  It will be a great fun time.  Lots of sight seeing, and evenings can relax in the hot tub and get ready for the next day.

May 23 Mom leaned over in her wheel chair to get in a drawer and toppled out. She landed on her forehead and knees, scraping one leg and arm on closet as he went down.  Went over to hospital and had CAT scan on head, Xrays on neck, knees and shoulder.  Luckily nothing broken.  They taped up the scrapes and said the big goose egg on her forehead would probably cause black eyes.

Both eyes did not turn black but it started down her left side with the eye, then on down to cheek and clear down into neck area before the dark bruise stopped.  It was a little amazing to watch it just spread day by day. 

She is two weeks out from it now, and the forehead and eye are clearing up and down the cheek some. She still has the dark blue in chin and neck area.  There is still a knot on her forehead.

Very lucky not to break anything. She hurts all over anyhow, so this just made that worse.

But for 92, she came through it well.
