Enjoying My Birthday Dinner With My Grandson

I had such a good time Thursday evening when I went to dinner with my daughter Becky and her husband Jamie because my grandson Matt and his beautiful wife Lucja were able to join us. This was a small family gathering to celebrate the birthday I had last Saturday when I turned 88 years old. I was really happy to be able to STAND for this picture outside DiRito's Restaurant in Canon City, CO. I've been walking with the help of a walker for several weeks now. In fact, Becky packed the wheelchair away for storage today. She also cleaned off my treadmill and cleaned up my office so I can start using my treadmill as my physical therapist has recommended.
I celebrated my 87th birthday last year in a hospital bed with my leg in a cast and diabetic ulcers on my foot. I'm healed and healthy now and can tell already that my 88th year is going to be a much better year. It was wonderful to start it off with an Italian dinner with my super family. I feel so lucky that my only grandson and his wife live so close to me that we can get together for special times like this!
