Happy NEW Year to all of you. It looks like I haven’t posted for 10 days. Larry and I both were very sick over Christmas. We had that cold and sinus virus. We just stayed home and rested. Now as of Jan 2 we are feeling better.
Also, some of you have known that on Halloween Larry had a knee replacement. It has been 9 weeks, and he is doing fine. He has been back to his Larry’s Garage part days now for 2 weeks. He just finished up 8 weeks of physical therapy and that all went well. He is bending and straightening his leg fine. He is walking straight and no limping. They gave him more exercises to strengthen the leg muscles. I just asked him this morning if he remembers what it was like when he came home from the hospital. He said he really doesn’t remember but he has come a long way. First month he couldn’t drive. The knee was swollen a lot, so he used the water treatment a lot. He had physical therapy three times a week. The knee was stiff, and I found him rubbing it a lot to get feeling back to it. I do believe it is the most time he has spent at home was during this recovery.
He worked with his chain saw this last weekend. So slowly he is getting back to doing what he does. The hardest is kneeling with his automotive work, but he is making that work.
I am working on plant orders for the first ones to come on Feb 20th. Here we go. I have lots of cleaning and organizing to do before the planting starts. 6 months of being in the greenhouse, gives me only this short time to work on the house and all the bookwork I have with the two businesses.
With the holidays behind us, it is time to get ready for 2024. HARD to write that for sure. Hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas and the best of the New Year. Till next time this is Becky Litterer, Becky’s Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa firstname.lastname@example.org 641-794-3337 cell 641-903-9365
