We are approaching three months since Diane had the expanders removed and the permanent implants put in place.  Diane is doing well, there is some muscle pain yet and those crazy twinges from the nerves firing off as they recover.  The amount of pillows Diane needs to support her while sleeping is gradually diminishing.  She can sleep on her side for short periods too, but she still gets sore when she does.

Diane has been walking, getting back in shape.  She had gained weight because of the reduced physical activity and the need to eat every time she took medicine.  The city has added some nice paved walking/running paths in the greenbelt (floodway) in the past couple of years which makes the activity much nicer than utilizing the city streets and sidewalks in the past.  The greenbelt is just half a block away so it is convenient too.

Diane’s mom is getting married in the middle of November so we will be seeing a lot of family and friends for the first time since all this began a year and a half ago.  Diane should be doing just fine by then and will be able to thoroughly enjoy the time with her mom.


Diane arrived home last night after flight delays, again 😦 , but not as bad as the previous trip.  Incredibly it was due to storms in Atlanta once more.  I think Diane is getting to hate Atlanta.  Well maybe not hate, it takes a lot for Diane to show that type of negative emotion, but it is probably a strong dislike.  As you can imagine she was tired when she finally arrived home.

The trip was eight days, but I am sure it seemed like it was no more than a weekend getaway to Diane and her mom.  The good news is that they were able to share some quality time together, the tough part was when Diane had to leave.  Enough said…

Diane’s mom saw the blog for the first time this week, after reading the posts on the main page, she commented on how open I’ve been putting this blog together, and that was before she started reading the medical pages.  I understand completely, that is one of the reasons I am doing this, not Diane.  We were both raised to be very conservative and to keep family private, it took a little bit for me to get to the point that I could do this too.  The blog sat dormant for a period after I signed up with WordPress while I tried to decide if I really wanted to do this.

It is 10:46pm and Diane just called to let me know she arrived safely at the airport, where her mom was picking her up.

Our day started at 4:00am, Diane was up and starting to get ready so I could take her to the airport.  At 4:15 she got an automated message telling her that her flight was canceled due to weather in Atlanta, her stop-over.  The message also informed her she was being booked on a later flight.  We left the house at 7:30am headed to the airport, we go in to check her bag and get her boarding pass, the agent checks the status of the flight and all was OK, I watched her go through security, then I left to go get some breakfast before heading to work.
