I haven't to look far to find what is 'right' today. My dear daughter (only just over 5 weeks since she had her knee replacement op) drove herself to, and home from, her physio appointment this morning. I know she had her hubby with her, just in case, (gee, she has a wonderful bloke there) but she made it both ways without a problem. When you consider it is about a 35 minute drive each way, not a lot of traffic lights fortunately, that is a lot of driving. We are so proud of her as that is thinking really positively on her part. It's great to know she will now not be house-bound.
Tomorrow she is popping in for a cuppa before she drives into Fremantle for an appointment. I've told her that Phil will gladly take her there as it is can be quite busy even though only a few kilometres from our place. I guess she will decide how she feels once she has driven as far as our place.
Another good 'right'. I saw our dermatologist yesterday and apart from 'zapping' a couple of spots on my forehead he said he doesn't need to see me for *12-15 months. I am very fortunate at my age not to have many skin problems as we live in a country where melanomas are only too frequently found, even on young people. I have a very fair skin and it is to mum I am grateful as never was I allowed out in the sun for any length of time without being smothered with Hamilton's sunburn cream. My skin is by no way perfect but I have few wrinkles yet and I should also credit mum with that as I always wore a big sunhat except when swimming.
My dermatologist recommended a good scrub for anyone who needs to perhaps give their face or their lower neck and good clean. It is Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub. He said to use it twice weekly to get rid of some of those little bumpy things that can appear on the skin of older folk. Just saying. He jokingly said to make sure I got the Positively Radiant and not the Negatively Radiant!!!
*Actually I am seeing Jonathan again in September as he wants Phil and I to co-ordinate our appointments. I'm not sure how we got out of kilter but we did. He will check Phil out in September and probably just glance at me and then we should hopefully both be clear for a further 12 months.
