Tuesday Update

Hey, Y'all,
Today is a brand new day. It started with thunderstorms accompanied by lightning. Gramps had a pretty good night, and mine was not too bad. He has been up for awhile and has had breakfast, therapy, and a sink bath. He did all of it by himself, mostly, with some assistance from a lovely therapist named Petra.

I went out to breakfast this morning to Hardee's for gravy and biscuits, then stopped at Kroger's for a couple of fresh peaches as dessert. I also stopped at the Dollar Store and bought a couple of pair of walking shorts for Gramps (the kind that have all the little holes in the cloth and have a lining for comfort and are made completely of shiny polyester). They make me think of the Rocky Balboa theme song, cause they look like the kind that boxers wear. He is wearing them now.

The team will be meeting today to determine a tentative date for his departure from this facility. Hopefully, it will be soon.

I have located a laundromat that I can take our clothes to tomorrow so that we wont' wind up with out any clean ones to wear home.

Update on Lois- She is still in the Springfield Regional Hospital and is still having difficulty swallowing. There has not been any indication as to when she is leaving .

Well, I will sign off for now and report after the Staff meeting today. Blabbin' Grammy leaving off for now. Love to all of you. Thank you for your continued prayers in our behalf and of Lois' behelf.

Dear Gwammy,

Hope the news on Dub is exceptional and that you two are on the road to New Market very soon.

on another note, i want to express concern about your recent diet of Southern comfort food. i know that stress may be driving you to biscuits and gravy and to Hardee's high-cholesterol fare....i hope that you balance this with a salad now and then! saying this cuz i would like for you to continue to grace us with your presence here on the planet.

Sounds like you have most things under control for now. I will check back to see what you find out from the meeting. Take care.

I have been out of town and had no Idea that Uncle dubby was in the hospital. I read a bunch back and am wondering if they know exactly what is causing the memory loss and disorientation or if it is just a biproduct of having lots of years behind him. I love you guys. I Hope all is well.
