Fran, September 16

I have missed a lot of days of blogging.  Fran's fall was a serious setback.  She spent a couple of days in the hospital and then was moved to the Rehabilitation Center as an inpatient.  It proved difficult to manage her pain, and she is still in constant pain.  In spite of the fractured pelvic bone, there are no restrictions on weight bearing.  Except for one, the pain. She can stand and move a couple of steps, but it is very difficult.

She was discharged from Rehab on Monday the 12th, and has been home all week.  She has lost a lot of independence, and her care is more challenging. She is improving gradually and the pain, though still severe, is considerably better.  Her courage and determination are still there and she will recover.

Our caregivers, Isela, Katerina, and Cindy have been wonderful, as has been the support of Fran's friends, especially Alice and Jerry Rost and Barbara and David Binns.  Marshall and Ana and Maliq and Rachel have been there for Fran as well.

I am pretty busy. I am doing an hour webinar on Tuesday, entitled Measuring Performance, Damned if You Do and Damned if You Don't, with a paid (not much) audience of about 75 around the world.  I am also taking a class in web design at Mira Costa College, and I am finding it to be a real challenge.
