We are into July now and seem to be keeping busy at the resort. It hasn't developed as I wanted, because on June 30, I was coming home from the reoort on my bike after sitting around the camp fire with my sister and family that had just arrived. I started up the hill toward our driveway and knew I couldn't peddle all the way, so stopped, got off and my left foot was kinda down in the ditch where the water runs (when it rains). As I went to take my right leg over my bike to push it on up the hill, I lost my balance, and THUD on the ground I went. A trip to the ER, later x-ray and CAT scan revealed I cracked the ball of my left hip....so to Marquette for a partial replacment of hip on Sunday, home on Tuesday, and I'm recouping at home, Weren't we smart when we built our log home to put a bedroom downstairs on first floor, a bath/sit down shower and higher toilets in the bathrooms. I'm doing well, have the staples out, graduated to a cane from the walker, and continue my exercises under the supervision of my personal trainer, Ted. He is doing double duty as nurse and housekeeper at the resort. That wilh all his work....shingling a roof on #3 right now. We have had many offers of help and will use them if needed later... I'm thankful that it wasn't worse. We will make it. God is good.
