I came down to the coffee shop to post this and a couple was in here that haad to leave and go to the emergency room. He had a transplant 2 years ago and they were sitting there and he started to have a nosebleed. I told her how to get to emergency (just a few moments from here) since he didn’t want her to call paramedics. Husbands – sheesh.
Now for the post I had written!
We are getting braver. We pick a direction and drive and just make sure we can keep some landmarks in view. We ventured downtown today and made our way around to an Albertson’s grocery store. We managed to find our way home just fine.
My brother just found out he is diabetic. When I get internet access again I will be sending him information and I know his wife will be sending me some too. Dale has been able to keep his sugar down a bit by walking. We get out of this apartment every chance we get and walk. He may be moving slow but he is moving and it helps.
I have discovered the joys of steamed veggies and I’m getting ready to steam a bunch and cook some brown rice and pork loin to make some stir fry.
I want to take a moment to thank our kids. I can’t imagine being able to do this if they weren’t the people they are. I know they want us home but they have managed to make it to school and work. My daughter got first chair at all-region and my son is keeping up in debate. He has gotten multiple awards at the last two meets. For them to do all this with us gone is awesome and I want them to know how much we appreciate them for hanging in there.
We love and miss you guys and we need you to know that we appreciate you and know how hard this is. Dad and I will be home as soon as we can!
