Wednesday or Thursday is good for me.

I have been with Mom two days in a row. She was upset she hadn’t seen me since last Thursday. I asked her to go with Elliott and me to Evansville but she said no since we were going to watch Baseball as well as visit. Sometimes I just can’t win. I hope to see all of you this week.

Good News about my Mom!

I talked to my Mom today since I haven’t seen her since last Thursday. I have talked to her. She went to a movie with a friend from Morningside, last night. Mom is going on an outing tomorrow with Morningside friends. I’m thrilled she is taking advantage of the activities. We still are looking for an assisted living that is cheaper. A cousin, from California, is coming this week to visit Mom and me. We really are keeping busy. We need to get back to the Condo once Mom sells it. We have a realtor.

yard work

I am working in the yard today and tomorrow afternoon while Kara keeps Bill company. His slow progress is due to the sciatic pain which is totally unpredictable. We try to be optimistic. Next week we will have a therapy inspection visit to see what they suggest we need for
Bill to be safe in the house. This does not mean he is ready to come home yet. He needs lots of assistance just to get up out of bed.

Florida ~ yup it still gets hot down here!

Last visit to Orlando was in 2008, when we took Ella to Disney when she was nearly 5.  This time we have taken her to Universal Studios to see the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter ~ it is an unbelievable recreation of the movie….no detail is left undone.  To see her face as we entered was worth every dollar this is costing, and man, it does cost!!!  Matthew and Davie met us here, and we are all staying at the Cabana Beach Resort Hotel on the Universal grounds…wow - Retro design perfectly done!  We have been at the parks the last two days, and have one more.  Then on Sunday we are going to sort of hang loose…swim, do some shopping and maybe hit downtown Disney.  Ella declined spending time at Disney World.

We fly home on Monday, and likely will do nothing on the 4th due to theme park fatigue!!

Do we want to meet next week?  I could have it on Wednesday or Thursday….depending on who will be around.  Maureen may still be in Cincinnati.

Sorry about last night.

I got home about 5:00 and had to drive my Car to Church brothers to get it repaired. This time the car accident was in front of the house and Elliott was driving my car. the neighbor across the street backed into us. Not a lot of damage. Today I had laser surgery. My eyes have a film over the eyes that happens after Cataract surgery. My right eye was done today. It’s not as bad as Cataract surgery. I had some discomfort so I lay on the sofa when I got home. I’m posting so ‘m better. Munster was pretty good. We spent time with Josh, my cousin Linda and a friend of Mom. We are going back in June to meet with the realtor and put the Condo up for sale. We are going to visit both Bobby and Matt this summer.

Catching up!

Seems like a long time since we all have connected - so many things going on in our lives~  but looking forward to a little while at Maureen’s on Tuesday night!

I have been battling a bug for 2 weeks now….came back from the week in Minnesota and promptly got really sick on the Saturday before Mother’s Day - spent that whole weekend in bed and just now, 2 weeks later am feeling like I will recover!  What is left is poor hearing, some loss of taste and smell and just sorta blah.  But pushing forth anyway!

Celebrated Ella’s Confirmation on the 21st,  Matthew flew up from Florida which made her very happy!  She wrote an awesome Statement of Faith which she read on Sunday morning at church.  Then since Matthew was here, on Monday we celebrated Delaney’s graduation…she chose Cracker Barrel to eat at!  Matthew flew back to Florida on Tuesday.  It was great having him here after almost 2 years.

Steve went to the race yesterday, I didn’t.  So had 2 tix that were wasted.  Today I did go over to Union Chapel Cemetery to walk around the Veteran’s graves - usually lay daisies on them but they were done blooming already!

Tomorrow Steve is flying up to Minnesota, and I am driving then on Wednesday.  We will finish up with Marshall’s apartment etc.  Lots of stuff is going to Salvation Army, and then movers will pack and transport other things down to Florida and here to Taylor’s and a few things to us.  A funny feeling to dismantle a lifetime lived…..  I plan to drive down to New Ulm to visit my folks on Saturday and Sunday….my dad’s recovery from his fall is going along well.  Can’t drive again till beginning of July however - so Mother has had to resume driving after several years.  A good thing in my opinion.  Steve will drive his dad’s car back here as well.

Been trying to do some planting and gardening the past few days also! 

Hope to see you all tomorrow night!

I enjoyed the Reveal and happy we are now hoping to Face-Time Monday nights!!

  I’m sorry to hear about Bill. If I can help in any way let me know since I am just around the corner. Mom, Elliott and I really enjoyed visiting with Bobby, Rachel, Asher and their family and friends. I’m sorry We can’t get together in May. I want to show you the reveal Video before I tell you the results. I’m planning on taking my Mom to Munster and leaving her alone for a few Days. I have names and numbers of friends who hopefully will check in on her. Also Eddie and Josh are close by. They both called Mom on Mother’s Day which really surprised us since we really haven’t heard much from them since Josh was here visiting.
  Summer reading is almost here. I can’t believe It’s been 4 months since My Dad Passed Away!! Mom Had a tough time on their Anniversary and Mother’s Day. She was Married to him 66 !/2 years when he Died!

Thursday May 4 Day 10 in the hospital
Finally this evening Bill graduated to “eating” clear liquids. If he tolerates this ok the NG tube will be removed. He is still connected to tubes and wires and has a bed alarm. He sat up on the bedside commode and performed. This was every bit as exciting as the first time each of my kids performed and I would cheer. Big Bird would be so proud. Bill is still very weak and sleepy. He needs help to turn over or get up from the bed. It looks like the worst of it may be over and he should be going to rehab in a few days,
