Good Morning Y'all,
Everyone is doing well here in Houston. Dad has been home for a week now and is getting a bit stronger. He seems to be in some pain when he tries to move his trunk and I think he has a fractured vertabrea and when he tries to move it pains him. We tried to give him a half of a pain pill for the pain, but they just make him a bit woozie, so the ladies prefer to give him tylenol, extra strength of course. He keeps trying to unwrap his wrapped up finger. He has done a pretty good job of it too. I need to call the dr and see if they want him to come back in and re-wrap it.
Mom is doing pretty well. All the stars lined up properly and Joan and I took her to church on Sunday. It has been hard to do. One of the issues is the weather. If it is raining too hard, you really can't take her cuz she will get too wet in the process of getting her in and out of the van. Also, she isn't doing well enough to take her. She did well at church and seemed to know what was going on. If she is ok this weekend, I will take her again. I can't take both of them, if dad has to go in the wheelchair. I can only transport one in the van at a time. If dad can get into the car by him self, we can put the wheelchair in the trunk and he do the wheelchair to and from and in the church that would be fine. But it would be too long to take each one of them to the church separately and you have to have too many people to do that.
Joan went home yesterday. It was great to have her here. She did alot of stuff for M&D. And me too. She cooked for M&D everyday and that was a big help for the nurses. She starts school today for the teachers inservice and the kids come back next week. The kids here in TX start the 3rd week of Aug.
That's about all for today. It is real hot here and M&D haven't been out too much. Liz likes to take them for walks, but today the high is supposed to be 98, with a heat index of 113! Way to hot for them outside.
Gotta run and get some work done,
Love to all,
Mary et al
