Doing better, Sylvia to the rescue

Dear Friends and Family,
Another interesting day. First off Nan had a good night with lots of rest and little pain and wake time. But early this morning, 4 am there was very little urine output so I did not really go back to sleep with concern over possible dehydration. I left the house early this morning but wrote the important facts I needed in my book, then started calling Dr. Melynk, Nan's long time oncologist. His office finally caught up with him doing research and he called me directly. We discussed Nan's possible need of a transfusion and my pressing concern about possible dehydration. He was not aware of the 21 lbs Nan came home from the hospital with. So as we talked he decided that he would like to try lasix first, to pull some of the fluid she is carrying lose and out. He took the drug store number and called it in. We will see him on friday for a regular appointment and at that time we will decide about the possible transfusion and whether Nan needs one. While I was driving to Vallejo Sylvia Ahn, our long time friend from Tracy called to say she could come this afternoon to be with Nan. That was such good news. And so she came and spent the afternoon sitting with Nan and helping pass the time. She emptied every trash in the place unloaded and loaded the dishwasher and did more stuff I have not noticed yet. Thank you very much Sylvia for your help today.
Loree and I had discussed in advance if she could be available to help Nan make the transition down from upstairs mid day. Loree said she would be happy to help and did. She spent several hours here in the office today and was a great help holding the business together and dealing with the clients. Loree has a unique ability to keep tons of details in the air at the same time and to do it all perfectly, plus feed the fish, add to their water, double check the kitties and dogs and watch over Nan. Thank you Loree.
I am going to Madera tomorrow because I've put it off way too long. Nikki has agreed to stay with her mom for half the day and we are so thankful that she is being allowed to help out in this tough time by her work. Nan has already started a list of things she hopes they can accomplish as they are together tomorrow afternoon. I guess you know she is feeling some better, much less foot pain, no throwing up today so far, more alert and awake.
By the time I got back from seeing Discovery Bay properties this evening Nan had started taking the lasix and we hope there is a good result. Thanks Sylvia for picking up the meds and some milk.
At this point we are still pointed toward the cruise and with Nan feeling better our odds are getting better. As you might imagine I am working very hard to get everything done, there is just so much to do and it seems everyone wants something. Yet it is good to have business and to be able to make money.
Tonight we are very thankful for the blessings of this day, the safety of miles traveled, the sweet homeowners I met today.
So we send our love to you tonight seeking Gods answers, His healing.

love

tim and nan

    Tim,

    I did an interesting thing or to myself today. After the usual school day and the chess club after school I went home and did levitation on the furniture for 23 min and then on to Cold Stone to work. A fund raiser for our school were I got to see my students and they got to order me around telling me to add sprinkles to this and chocolate chips to that. Then they would tip the cashier, an action which required all workers present to sing. ie

    hi ho hi ho
    we thank you for your dough
    we laugh and play at work all day
    hi ho hi ho hi ho

    After two hours of that I started toward your house with a chocolate malt for you but when it mysteriously melted I changed direction and went home instead.

    I am thankful for the reduction in pain and the new and renewed hopes for the future. I am also thankful for all our friends that make our lives so joyful and meaningful!


    Wes

    Hi Tim & Nan,

    Glad to read that Nan is feeling better and that You,Tim, had a safe day on the busy highways.

    I just got back from My Service appointment at Big Valley Ford, Needed to get the Hertz Car that We bought last week registered on Hertz's Warranty System and get a couple of things adjusted. Everything went fine. Hertz had already got Us set up and in the System. Ford Motor Co had Us all registered also so We are set for the next 2 Years and 24,000 miles at no charge. That is easy to take.

    Carrol got back about 2:00 or so from Her Shopping trip and was very happy about the Bargains that She found at several Stores. She does love to drive Her Odyssey, It is good to see Her Out on Her Own again, a far cry from last Year at this time when the Power & Wheel Chairs were an every day thing. We are so thankful for the Lord's leading the Medical team to the right treatment for Her.

    I saw by the News this morning that there were several bad traffic tie ups around here 205/5/80/99 almost everywhere. Hope you were able to avoid all of the big messes.

    Can you believe this COLD weather?, what a change from the mild stuff last week. Pedens do not have a corner on funny weather I guess it's everywhere.

    Talked to My uncle a few days ago, He & My aunt got back to Nashville just fine with the Mercury that they bought from Us. He had just left the Local DMV office and got everything transfered without a hitch and He let Me know that He had just filled the Car with Gas at $2.24 per gal. Just had to rub it in a bit. They were really taken back by Our $3.20 + prices out here. He said that Gas got progressivle less expensive as they traveled east. With Out doubt We out here in Calif. are really getting "RIPPED OFF"

    Have a good Day,

    Love & Prayers,

    Bob & Carrol.
