We woke up it was windy and 42 degrees!
BURRRRRR!
I stayed in the tent with the heater on, while dad did some stuff.
Then we went to Lakey and had breakfast.
Then I stayed in the tent while dad was putting things up so we could go home.
Like a tradition.......We went to DQ, Dad ate food and a dessert, I just had dessert. Yum!
When we got home, I was with Rosebud for awhile.
Then I crashed out in bed for an hour.

Luckly we had a heater in the tent.
I got up VERY VERY Sorely in my back, and legs and arms from the cot.

It's was comfortable, though my right foot was bothering me all night long.
And I was straining again getting up and down.

Dad and I went camping at Garner State Park.
Luckly dad had no problems doing the tent or the cabana this time by himself.
We had fun up until it started to rain at nighttime.
I was straining get up and down from the toilet or porto potty to my wheelchair.
I took my red chair, the new one, It is bigger than me though.
But this chair lasts longer and it's easier to go on dirt pavement and gravel.
I slept on the cot this night.

September 18, Sunday, 2011
Blood Sugar : Weight :
At 5am I almost threw up, I was so congested.
I had to have dad put my bipap on me, for I did not want to wear it to bed.
And my back was hurting something bad to move or to breath.
Finally got up around 7:30 am ……..and ooooooooohhhhh was I sore,
~an dad had to put recovery cream on me.

Today, was the day, we were leaving around 2pm.
in-which is good, for I missed Rosebud!
And I don’t think my legs could handle up/down anymore.
As we were on the way home, we stopped at DQ for Dessert this time. Yum!

When we got to the mailbox, YES!!!!!!! My Grey’s Anatomy came!!!!!!!

When we arrived at home, it was sunny and at 4:30pm.
First, I saw and was with Rosebud, then I went to use “MY” bathroom,
~and saw my right arm where my small bruise was, but when I saw it,
~not only did it grow, it spreaded too!

Later that night around 8:21 to 9:30pm It stormed and hailed.
This was when Rosebud was on my chest & stomach and I was in bed.
It scared both of us, especially Rosebud.
Dad was home visiting teaching when this happened.
He came home just when it started to stop.

Sore in 2 arms and legs and right foot.
Had a migraine.
Took Loratab, Skelaxin & Imetrex.

Dad & Liz Darnall my cousin, had a 7 hour train trip excursion.
While I reclined in my wheelchair and fell asleep & listened to cd music all day.
While I was watching ducks, squirrels, people swimming, boating, canoeing & kayaking.
And I saw 2 small tiny spiders & 2 lizards.
One of the lizards was 5 inches long.
With the back as steardy as leather and looked like a snake.
Was very scary to look at.

I went around the table to get some ruffles or something to eat…..
But I got stuck in the dirt first & luckly my neighbors were right there to help me.
Then later it started to rain & Becky next door helped me get into my tent.
Man did I sweat up a storm,
So much that I could taste salt off my lips.

After it stopped raining.
Sarah Darnall, my cousin Liz Darnall's adopted daughter came over,
~& made the tent release water, so I could get out of the tent.
Then, much later, Liz Darnall & Dad came back from the train excursion.
Dad was telling me that they sang a Rap Train song of Happy Birthday to my dad, for Monday is dads birthday.

Then dad, Liz Darnall, Sarah Darnall and I went to Coopers BBQ for Dinner. Liz paid.

the next time she will give it back to me.
She looked at my breast and said,
Luckly it was not internal bleeding,
and as for the lumps in my left breast.
They are caused by the fall.
If they haven't gone away soon, give me another call.
Dr. Scanlan said, when I fill better,
~to go to get my mamagram for my right breast.
And I need to see Hyperbaric Wound Care for my right upper leg
~and a foot doctor for my ingrown toenail.

April 26, Monday, 2009:
When I was 1/2 way comming awake. Around 1pm.
Liz Darnall was here, and she went through all my medicines and said, These make you sleepy!
Dad was on the phone, talking to my doctor.
He had Dr. Scanlan take me off at least 9 of them.
Telling her that :
On the way home, Dad was eating Ruffles Chips,
~and I had asked him if he was going to make a basket out of those chips?
Later, I said :
"Lark Doley, makes Beef Jerky an inch thick".
Dad knew I was OUT OF IT!!!!
Later, Liz Darnall and Dad, saw my Black/Blue Chest!

April 25, Sunday, 2009:
At Garner State Park ~ Conclusion
Sunday morning around 2am.
I got into my Blue Motor Wheelchair,
~In - which, is unusual for me to do. Too much off my balance!
~Later, Dad said, I must have had something called adrilian.
I was cold & I asked dad for a blanket.
Wierd, the heat was on in the tent.
He said get back in bed.
Then he heard a CRASH!
I had fallen face first on my Bipap machine,
~between the Oxygen machine & The Cot.
Dad struggled to get me up.
Somehow, in the morning, he managed to get me dressed
~and in my wheelchair.
He was upset with me for I was picking at my food instead of eating it.
Somehow he got my motor wheelchair into the van with me in it.
I was Really OUT OF IT!!
Kept falling asleep too!!!
Dad took us home.

April 23, 24, 25, 2009:
Dad and I went to Garner State Park!
Most of it was a blur.
But dad said I had fun,
Dad said, we even played Yahtzee!
~up until Sunday Morning...
Saturday night, I was in pain, & I was extremely restless ....
~way too restless to sleep.
So, not sure, I took something for pain and for sleep.
So, to make sure, I did it again.
