Subject: Tom is coming later today
Tom just called and said he will be here this weekend as well as coming again next weekend for the following week. He said "Why not?" and Mary Liz is insisting that he be there for his parents like he is insisting she be there for her father. So he will arrive about 10 pm and is renting a car, which we can take back the next day. I offered to pick him up, but he said he already paid for 24 hours and he figured I'd be bushed from the day already and didn't need to drive that late at night.
Daddy is pleased he's coming. I also told Daddy that Dolores and Bob, Bob and Judy, and Rita are going to all be coming to stay with him at different times as well as us until Mom is .... well, able to leave rehab hospital which will be a while. I told him then after that maybe he and Mom might want to come to Houston for a while while Mom is getting better. So he is ok tonight. His eyes seem clear and not red for the first time since I've been here.
Believe it or not, Daddy initiated a shower tonight. I had decided that I wasn't going to mention it for tonight. He wasn't that dirty and he could skip a night. I didn't say a word, and he got up about 9 and said he was going to take a shower. I heard the water running etc. This was before I told him about the help the help from Dolores and Bob and Bob and Judy. In fact Rita called while he was in the shower. And Tom called after Rita. Jo, you are in charge of organizing the visitation schedule.
So things are ok here. Dad's legs are much better too. I put more on this evening after his shower. It turns out there were ants going right in front of his chair out in the garage, and I wonder if some were ant bites, but then again, that would have been an awful lot of ant bites. I used a spray to kill those immediately. Frank noticed them actually, and I also gave Frank and Dottie the extra garage door opener.
Well, I'm going to bed now. Lots of love and hugs, Anna
