Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day!  Things here are fine.  Not much news to talk about.  Dad is the same.  He really doen't look good at all and is hanging in there.  He is very thin and doen't really talk too much.  He just shouts when you do something he doesn't like. 

We are having a bit of trouble with diaper rash on his bottom and are trying a bunch of different things so he isn't as comfortable as he could be.  These rashes just pop up and they are somewhat hard to make go away.

Jerry and I have been traveling around alot this month.  We went to a class up in NJ and saw our cousins Tony and Judy, then we went to Tom's and also saw Cousin Donna her daughter Tammy and their family.  It was so nice to see everyone and it was nice to revisit the old country. 

Jerry's and my daughter, Emily is getting married in a few weeks and that is keeping us a little busy.  Thank God her mom has to deal more with her.  We have heard that she is a Bridezilla!  I thought about taking Dad to the wedding, but really don't see how he could go.  It is about a 45 min drive to the wedding site and back and he just can't really sit in the wheelchair for that long anymore.  If you keep him longer than 2 hours, he really starts to shout that he wants back in the bed.  We will take pictures and show him the wedding.  At this point I'm not sure he even knows who she is anymore.

One other thing is that I am sure that I told you that Dad's pacemaker leads are shorting out causing the battery to drain faster than is supposed to.  The doctors say he wouldn't make it through the surgery so we are not doing anything about it.  Anyway, I have our nurses checking his vital signs daily and his pulse is starting to slow down.  It was running about 70 and has slowed to the low 60's.  This is an indication that the battery is weaker.  Just wanted to let everyone know that it is slowing and we aren't sure how much the pacemaker is providing and how much his heart is doing on his own.  Only time will tell.

Hope all is good with all of you. 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Mary et. al.
