Thursday, November 6th

Hey Y'all. Not much happening today. Dad and I went to Walmart to get her some clothes to wear at the rehab center. I got her some more of those snap down light robes to wear and one heavy robe for the winter with snaps. I also got a few pairs of pull over night gowns. She normally wears long PJ's and they wont work with her catheter. The doctor is not sure if they will leave the catheter in her or if they will take it out. If they take it out, she can't go to the bathroom yet and will need the depends and they will have to change her every two hours to keep her skin from breaking down. They said she can wear shorts there and thread the catheter through the leg of the shorts.

Today she did some occupational therapy. The therapist tied an apron on her that had buttons, a zipper, a pocket and a shoe lace. Mom worked on the buttons and did them with her left hand. She also had to pick up some large pegs and place them in the pocket. Then she had to take the pegs out of the pocket and put them in a peg board. She did real well with that.

Jan is also teaching her to turn her self over in bed. It is still hard for her, but she is giving it her all. He did the sit up thing again and she was a bit tired today and really couldn't hold herself up.

When we were leaving today she took her left arm and pulled Dad's head to her so she could kiss him and when she did that, she also straightened out his collar!! She can't resist taking care of him when she is ill.

That is about all that happened today. I fixed Dad and me a turkey pot pie from leftovers that I found in the frig. I cut up a few potatoes and put them in with the turkey and veggies and cooked it for an hour. And the potatoes were rock hard. Oh, well, next time I will cook the potatoes before I put them in the pie. Live and Learn, but Dad didn't complain at all.

Talk at y'all tomorrow and hope all is well with all of you.

Love, Mary and Eddie
