Thursday evening - end of a very good day!

Dear Friends and Family,

Nan is watching Survivor and has just returned from a long walk. This was her second walk today and she is strong and feeling pretty good. Art and Connie came to visit today and were still here when I got here this evening at around 7 pm. They played Mexican dominos, talked, snacked and played some more. Nan really enjoyed having them here and it helped pass the day in a very pleasant manner. I got to walk out with them to their car and thank them for their coming up to visit. Then when I came back in the elevator decided to take a vacation. So I finally came back up in the staff elevator.

Nan had a very good night last night with lots of sleep and rest. She had a good day too. So far we have not heard anything about the next step but since the flow of the leak continues unabated we think they will have to consider doing something else. Perhaps we will learn more tomorrow about planned procedures. They have waited all week in hopes that the leaking would diminish on its own, it has not. Other than the leaking Nan is doing very well. She now has no antibiotics, is eating some food at every meal and some inbetween, has not been running a fever, has good pain control.

I worked here until 10, left for Modesto which turned out to be a 1 hour and 45 minute trip, enjoyed doing an inspection on a cute property which included 3 giant tortoises, a bunny rabbit, a huge Saint Bernard, a rangy poodle, a large above ground pool with green water, a collection of coffee grinders, strange indeed. As I found the freeway onramp I spied a Sonic. So one yummy grilled cheese sandwich and a large order of tator tots later I was once again on the road. This time to our home in Discovery Bay where mail was stacked up and Loree had laid out work needing my attention. I settled in to write an appraisal that was needed and overdue. Got that done and then turned to the checkbook to write a few checks and enter them into our Quicken system. That done I loaded up and headed to STeve's place to see a very wonderful Keanna, she launched herself into my arms with a cry of Grampie, so precious. Then fill the tank of diesel and headed back to SF. Good run with minimal traffic in the city itself. As I mentioned Art and Connie were still here so we visited a bit and then they had to hit the road.

Now we are winding down in the room, got hot tea for Nan and hot mocha for me, checked email messages and did the big walk with Nan. Now she is getting ready to sleep. She has had a great day. Tomorrow will be a special day, at 2:30 in the afternoon Jan is arriving at Sacramento from Denver. She is Nan's cousin and a great friend as well. She will stay with us until next wednesday. That will allow me to do a bit more work and Nan will not be alone.

We sure appreciate having the room to stay on 27th. Kathy and Brad have been very kind to allow me to stay at their home. It has saved me many late night trips back home to Discovery Bay. Thanks so much.

Thank you for remembering Nan in your prayers. Please continue to seek God's healing and His will for Nan and the current leaking problem.

    Hi Mustards,

    So glad to read that Nan is doing better and is more comfortable. Now for the LEAK We are praying that The fix can be put in place very soon.

    We enjoyed a good dinner with friends at Folsom and a couple of hours of "Tripoly" in the Hotel room. (Combo Card Game), Hearts, Rummy & Poker.

    Weather here is beautiful and should stay the same over the weekend.

    Say hi to Jan from Us We do remember many good times with Her & Folks & Brother Rusty when they were in school here in Lodi with Our Boys. Carrol & Ann were and still are fast friends.

    Much Love and Prayers,

    Bob & Carrol

    Good Morning! It sounds like not only Nan but Tim also had a good day yesterday. I'm so glad God is giving you peace. The pain control, the decreased nausea, getting the appraisals done and money coming in all help with the general attitude. Now for this mysterious leak...... Are the doctors all back from Chicago? It doesn't sound like they are telling you much about a plan if the leak doesn't stop on its own.

    Only another week and a half left of October ~ yea!!! This has been our busiest October yet since we have been here. So many leaf lookers and people in and out. We will have had 45 cottages to clean this month with people coming and going every few days. I have a wonderful new cleaning lady which helps a LOT. My washer and dryer have gotten a real work out. I go to the laundromat when there is a lot to do at once though. Sunday we have 6 going out and 6 coming in! I hope we make it! We will all be cleaning on Sunday.

    Have another good day and may you continue in peace knowing God is in control.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol
