Well, I guess they are having fun at this point. Soaring, eating fish, playing chase, and E-23 learning all kinds of new stuff. I miss them.

It did not escape me you googled ablation. In your hospital bed. I’m glad you are doing rehab. A little bit now, but you will get stronger and stronger. There will come a day you will do something, and remember how you couldn’t do that after surgery. It will make you proud of yourself, and you will know you really are better. So you… Read more »

I want you to feel as good as you can Karen Marie. Mind and spirit is very important. I know you have ups and downs but you are truly a winner! So you are still in the hospital but are able to walk around the hospital floor. That is good. We do all care about each other, but it just shows more when we really go thru a rough period.
I stayed one night in the hospital after the ablation. I don’t have a need for rehab now.

I did the whole course of rehab that Medicare provides, both in a nursing home and afterwards with home health. I’m working now on using less walker, more cane. The problem is the cane occupies a hand, so you only have one hand to carry something. My walker has a tray to carry things. If it wasn’t for that I think I would use the cane all the time. I may still need the walker in public because someone could bump me and I’d loose my balance.

Oh, I agree, Debbie. I would also use the walker in public. That would be horrible to get bumped and fall.. I find that I also prefer the walker to the cane, for the same reason. I can carry more items. The only thing I don’t like about using the Walker, is that it is so hard for me to get it in and out of the car. It is pretty heavy. Do you plan to go shopping to get a personalized type cane? There are a lot of nice ones out there.

So you must have a tray on your Walker to. It is hard to fold the cane and get it in to the car. My walker isn’t heavy but it is getting hard to fold. I just got two plain canes. One is a Hurricane but really isn’t much different than a plain cane.

Yes, I have a basket on the front of my Walker. I hardly ever use my cane, even though it has four legs or whatever you call those things. I just don’t feel uncomfortable or bala”nced. I remember watching “House”one time and seeing him buy a spectacular cane. It was quite funny.

That is true, Debbie. They need their fun time. I’m wondering exactly what they do during that time. I’m sure they soar a lot, catch fish together, and I don’t know what else,. A few weeks ago, I saw them chasing each other with food. It was so funny. I miss seeing those things.

Oh I would love to see them chase each other! How lucky you were. See, they are having fun. More time to relax, energy to splash around in the pond. All the food for themselves. When it storms they can find shelter in an overhang instead of being mombrella.

Yes, Debbie, I was truly lucky to see them chasing each other. Next I would like to see them soar together. That would be beautiful. I also remember when F23 gave M15 her mombrella. I thought that really showed their connection. I think there are probably some videos on a lot of what we wanted to see but missed. I search for them frequently.

From Karen Marie’s sister. Karen had surgery today.
Hi Debbie, 
This is Kim. I’m Karen’s sister. I did receive a call from Karen’s surgeon around 12:30 today. Everything went fine with her surgery. He waited to contact me to make sure everything we well during post surgery. I meant to contact you sooner, but I fell asleep when I got home from work. I didn’t sleep much last night. 
Let me know if you have any questions.

The rehab will probably be quieter, less nighttime wake ups. I’m so happy the doctor said you were doing great! My number one fear was infection and I’m glad that hasn’t happened. You will feel great! Probably better than for a long time. Are you eating ok? Don’t worry if you aren’t it is still soon. Pain managed?

Felt that way with 21 when he left and happy for the return but sad again leaving for the second time.

F23 brought a fish to the nest today. Maybe she was hoping to see E23 one last time, but E23 didn’t show up. The shrike was bothering her a lot, but she just snapped at the bird. After a minute or two, the shrike left her alone. She ate the fish at the nest and then left.

for those of you who had given up hoping that Iris the Osprey would have a respectable mate again (it’s been 5 yrs!), she does now -& she’s laid 2 eggs by him & he’s a first yr mate, but has caught on quickly–brings her fish, guards her while she eats–it took a while for her to accept him since psychologically, she was still bonded to Louis, the traitor. But she finally did accept him, – & thankfully Louis has left her along since then. The SPO site is Hellsgate.
