Home again, home again
We arrived home around noon today, bil is finally out of ICU and in a room, he's able to do a slid, step with a couple of folks holding him up, to get to the bathroom which made him feel almost like a new man. (He just couldn't let go on that bedpan). He's still wearing a holter monitor but all the other wires and ivs are gone so moving doesn't set off more alarms that a lock-down at the state prison now. The nurse taught James and his wife how to exercise his arm and leg and now they're waiting to see if he'll be able to receive rehab. Unless he can get some financial help, the rehab place won't even consider taking him because he has no health insurance. Tomorrow his sister and I are off on a quest to see if there's anything to be done about financial help that they're so far claiming he's not eligible for.
I was able to visit with Jordan and Jaylen this weekend. They're growing up SO fast! Jordan had a ball tourniment on Saturday and their team placed second. They had to play 5 games and I saw two and part of one before I wimped out and went back to their house to cool off. I swear it was 96 degrees in the shade!
I've even had a fairly productive afternoon today, for me anyway. I picked the cucumbers and squash in the garden, washed 3 loads of laundry, and cooked a fine supper using mostly stuff from the garden. Now I'm pooped and near'bout ready for my bed.
I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!
