    It is six on a Saturday morning, and my first comment went flying into cyberspace. Perhaps I have not had enough coffee yet to ground it.

    How can anyone look so good first thing in the morning. You look absolutely beautiful. It must be that wonderful weather I keep hearing about in Northern Ireland.

    I have a friend that will have surgery next week so maybe that care nurse would like a trip to the States. I think my friend could give her a real run for her money.

    Now I will send this and hope the cyber-gremlins will be too busy to snatch it from the air.

    Maria – Not sure what happened to the first comment. I checked the sin bin and it was not there. Glad you made it this time. Elly suddenly produced the Flip when I was pretending not to get out of bed. that gave me the idea for the advert. She approved it before it went live.

    Maynard – NO WAY!

    Ramana – I don’t want her to.

    Well, these patients just don’t know what’s good for them. A five mile run and a good workout at 3 am, that’s what they need. Left to themselves, they’d do nothing but watch soaps and drink gin. Keep that whip handy, Elly, I say.

  4. Grannymar

    Nick – My legs are worn down to my knees….. I walked a mile this morning! Alas, gin is off the menu right now, I can’t risk being found drunk in charge of crutches. πŸ™„

    YOU ARE ADORABLE. And your “big leg” went away.

    Getting out of bed is hard to do.
    Sing to the tune of “Breaking up is hard to do”

    ChrisD – I have not dismissed her yet!

    BHB – The leg is almost back to normal, the ankle and foot swell as the day goes on. I notice an improvement every day.

    I noticed that the cup of tea was waiting for you so your nurse Hitler can’t be all bad. πŸ˜‰

    I need a nurse Cratchit to prod me. After eleven months I still can’t walk a mile. I am amazed at your progress. And I don’t pop out of bed that quick, either. And my hair doesn’t look that good even after I comb it. You are the wonder woman of 2009.

  8. Grannymar

    Rhyleysgranny – Me a rebel? Well…. only on Tuesdays and Saturdays!

    BHB – I need upper body exercise and pillows don’t cause injury.

    Darlene – Elly says you are on! She will be in Arizona in November if you want to interview her. πŸ˜†

    Val – Elly is the perfect nurse for me right now.

  9. Baino

    Why you’re more spritely than me getting out of bed! And frankly, if you buy me lunch once a week, I’d like the job. You’d be a better boss than the one I’ve got at the moment! (Nice linen by the way . . .I love yellow!)

  10. Darlene

    Elly, I am looking forward to having you nurse me. I love lunch out too, so get yourself over the pond. I have to get in shape so I can keep up with Grannymar and Bikehikebabe.

    Maybe we can scrounge up a toy boy or two for your Mum and me. That means Grannymar will have to come too. Whoo Hoo – what fun we could have. (If nurse Ratchet will let me.)

  11. Grannymar

    Jean – I get tired, but otherwise I a fine.

    Baino – I am not so sprightly getting into bed after the activity of the day The yellow is very calming.

    Darlene – Let the fun begin! πŸ˜€

    Judy – How far is it from South Carolina to Tucson, Arizona? Would you make it for lunch?

  12. Steph

    Grannymar (and Elly)

    Brilliant video!

    It’s lovely to see you giggling like a naughty schoolgirl…

    especially having survived THOSE conditions! πŸ˜‰

  13. Grannymar

    Steph – We do plenty of giggling, teasing and leg pulling. NO! Not the right one please. πŸ˜†

    Darlene – I am searching for my dancing shoes.

    You’re looking absolutely MAH-VE-LOUS! And pretty and trim, too. Looks like you’ve had a wonderful nurse there in Elly; I know you’ll be sorry to see her go. Now that you can walk a mile, you can visit her for “touch up” nursing now and then. Glad to see your progress!

  16. Grannymar

    Alice, I will really miss Elly when she returns to Dublin in a few weeks time. Her sense of fun, encouragement and gentle pushing to reach new goals, tempting and enjoyable meals all make for a speedy recovery.

    I am not really sure about her singing! πŸ™„
