Take final stuff to auction from Brown house (if weather permits) Nope
Lose 5 pounds (assuming my starting weight is still 241....haven't been near a scale in 2 months!)  Maintained, so that's good:)

Neck Update:  Unchanged.  Some days it's better, but other days there's weakness in the left bicep.

Achilles Tendon Update:  Began having ZERO pain on 11/1, but after beginning PT on 11/6, pain returned.  Did my exercises faithfully until the 13th, forcing myself through the pain.  Talked to Mom's PT guy about it on the 13th, only to be told that since the pain had gotten worse, to STOP.  So I did....and it's gotten better.  Pain level down from 5 or 6 to a 1 or 2, depending on my activity level.  Still wearing air cast, and return to Ortho Doctor on 12/3.  No surgery; go back to see her on an 'as-is' basis, keep wearing the air cast/brace.
