Happy Bird Day - CK #77

Happy Thursday my friends!  And it really is. It's almost to the end of the week.  I have my last PT appointment today, although I'd sure like to still go. I have to commit to doing my exercises every day, walk 30 minutes at least 3 times a week, and get back into a routine of doing a workout.  Yikes! That's a lot.

GOOD NEWS! Finally after 7 weeks of having a sore throat every day, I woke up on Saturday morning and it was ALL GONE! I went to a throat specialist last week and she took pictures of my throat. It was still all red and irritated and the tonsil base tissue was all swollen. I don't have any tonsils, but if I still had them, I would have had tonsillitis. So I got a prescription for another antibiotic, this time the right kind for what was wrong with me. So good to be all well again. Thank you for any of you who said a prayer and had get well thoughts for me.  I do appreciate it.

So, on to the challenge for this week for Creative Knockouts!  Our theme is Spots & Dots!  So cute.
