My hubby was able to get some great photos of the “Super Moon”, so I thought I’d show them to my Xanga friends. He was so sweet the night it was to be so full and beautiful – I was at our home, sick still, and he and Dannye had been out on a Senior photo shoot much of the day. They brought supper, and we sat down to watch some movies we’d been saving for when we could be together. Bill kept saying he needed to go take Moon pictures, but we were snuggled on the couch and he kept putting it off. So these photos were taken at around 10:30 Saturday night. He got his photos, and I got lots of snuggles! Can’t beat that!
Daddy came home from the hospital Saturday. Because I was still sick, Jeanne took him home and stayed with him until last night. Dave and Karla picked up medications and lunch over the two days I was at Dan’s. I was so thankful to have no worries while I was recuperating! We are so blessed to have so many of us right here able to pitch in when needed!
Daddy is not doing well at all. He is so very weak, and requires so much more help than just a week ago. He does seem in good spirits, though. I told him Nathanael and Emily are coming in a couple of weeks, and he was so thrilled. Michael and Amy were there visiting when I got home, and that is always a boon to Dad’s spirits! Dannye brought me home, and when Daddy sees her, he always says, “HI!! DanReigh!!” His grandchildren are the apples of his eye! Just their presence makes him smile!
Dr. S will be calling hospice today to get that ball rolling. Because of Daddy’s weakness, we are not sure how long he can continue to get up and down from his own bed – it is very low; plus, he is supposed to be positioned with his upper body raised 30% when he is lying down. In his recliner, this is not a problem, although he is struggling to get up from his chair now. We don’t know how soon a hospital bed will be warranted. We are thankful that Daddy is still able to help with these decisions, and he is very willing to talk about things logically. He is so precious! What an amazing man is our Daddy!
I have to go now. I am printing an abundance of emails and attachments at work that piled up while I was sick, and it’s time to go on to the next set. Please continue to pray for us – it is all that keeps us afloat sometimes!
God bless your day!
