I'm not dead yet! I think I'll go for a walk!

I am back from our yearly family beach trip (and family reunion). My family, my 2 aunts, 2 cousins and my uncle all go to Oak Island for a week and stay in a rent house. My Aunt Kay isn't in that picture but she was there. For the most part it was a good beach trip. My older cousin is a spoiled brat who refused to listen to anyone, even when it concerned her avoiding my arm. She is the blonde in the pink shirt on the far left. I avoided her most of the trip. The other little girl is my Mini Me that I adore and look at as my little sister. She was awesome this week and was very helpful if I needed anything. I spent a few hours on the beach most days and overall, it was a good week.
My arm is ok. It swelled up more (along with a good part of my upper torso) and the pain has spread. I had to switch from my smaller sling back to the big one because of the swelling. I only had 2 tremor episodes which I thought was good since I had the sling off while I was on the beach.
We are still waiting on the referrals to the orthopedist and the pain clinic in Winston. Back t the hurry up an wait.
Dixie is doing great. This week I am hoping to make her some service dog in training patches so we can start taking her into more environments. Lola is growing like a weed and smart as a whip.
