A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

Hey ya'll.  Glad to see a lot of my Doodle Family Is still here and you are probably wondering where Pemon and I went. 

Don't know if I told you that Memorial Day weekend I went into a severe diabetic coma with my sugar dropping below 15.  The paramedics said thank heavens Mark called 911 when he did.  I was almost a goner.  Spent about 3 days in the hospital with that one.  Meds have been adjusted and that seems to be working.

Well, August 23rd I had a bad fall and broke my Femur.  Left one, same one I broke in 2009, but in a different spot.   Bent the post they put in in 2009 which had to be removed and replaced and then they put a couple of plates and pins in the new fracture including the upper left side of my knee.  Was in the Hospital and Rehab center until 9/12.  I don't want to bore you all, but we had a horrible experience with the insurance and home health agencies.  I'm beginning not to trust the medical field at all.  That's that in a nut shell.

So, After many weeks I'm finally on therapy at home.  Poor Mark, working full time  and having to take care of me.  He built me a platform from the living room to the family room (where my computer is).  The other day I made it up and down the ramp by myself, but that still doesn't sit too well with Mark.  I have to get caught up on Mark's Company books and our personal budget.  I'm getting there slowing.

I use a transport board from the wheel chair to the portable toilet and bed.  I'm getting really good at that.

I use to call Mark everytime I did this as I was afraid I was going to fall.  But I don't have to call him anymore.  I can't wait until I can walk again, but I think it will be another month.

But, I'm O.K. otherwise.  LOL.  I will try to get caught up and I'm so sorry I have not welcomed the new people that have joined our community -   But I will say welcome now and you will enjoy our Doodle family, we have some wonderful members and lots of beautiful Doodles.

Love you guys,

Grace & Pemon

Just wondering about you the other day!  What an ordeal you are going through and dealing with the crazy (I'm being nice here) health care system on top of it!  At least you are home and on the mend. I'm sure all the Doodles can't wait to hear from and see Pemon again!
