Nikki saves the day, Nan is doing OK

Dear Friends and Family,

Its 8:30 and its nice to be home with nan. I drove about 6 hours today to do one appraisal in Madera. Nice folks, had 300 chickens and sold eggs. Comps were all over the place but the trusty GPS helped me find them. Now I'm home sitting with Nan, fire burning, CSI on the TV. Nan spent most of the day in her bed resting up. Nikki was kind enough to spend the day here with mom, helped her find things to pack for the trip and Keanna entertained them both. They spent a nice afternoon together and it helped mom pass the time as well. The wound nurse came this morning to check things out and said the leaking wound is smaller all the time. She left supplies we will need on the trip.

I'm working as hard as I can right now in case the trip does actually happen. We are preparing to go and unless monday presents new health challenges we are on. Tomorrow morning I have to be in Vallejo by 9 am and then back here to take Nan to the doctor and then to see two more properties before crashing for the evening. Our visit with the doctor is important, they will do a simple cbc and that will tell us how basic in the blood are doing, hemoglobin, potassium, white count, creatins.

Jason is on the phone right now talking to his mom. Those calls are so good for Nan's spirits.

So we come to the end of a very busy and stressful week. I believe we have made progress, Nan's foot no longer hurts, she is able to move about more freely, she is pretty well free of nausea, the leaking from her nephrostomy tube has stopped. Pretty impressive when we think about it.

Thanks to Nikki's fellow workers who allowed her to be with her mom this afternoon. She was here all afternoon and they made a lot of progress working together. Finally she had to leave around 5 to get Keanna to her class. Thanks group! Thanks Nikki!

We are now heading to bed so good night or morning to our friends. We think of you in Boston, North Carolina, Colorado, Oklahoma, Idaho, California, Texas, Washington, Oregon and Hawaii.

Thank you for your prayers in Nan's behalf. We both appreciate them very much.

So good night.

    Good Morning Mustards,

    What good news this morning ! No more Leak or Foot Pain & the Nausea is gone too! I say that is real progress. We will be thinking of You today and hoping for good Blood numbers as We so often do for Ourselves. Seems like We live by the results of "Blood Work Numbers".

    We are thinking of making the drive over to Discovery Bay Sabbath afternoon to visit with You a bit if Nan is feeling up to it and You are not to tired out Tim. Maybe We could Meet for Lunch? We will call Sabbath morning to see how things are going.

    I guess We are going to have some more wet weather coming up I'll get on Weather.Com shortly and find out what & when it is due to be here. That may or may not have a bearing on what We do Sabbath.

    Have a Safe & Productive day and know that We are thinking of and Praying for You Both.

    Bob & Carrol.

    Nan and Tim,

    Greeting from La PAZ, Mexico!

    We have limited use of the internet but we were able to read the blog and check on a few messages. We will be back on April 23 which is the day you are planning on leaving for the cruise.

    Take care.

    Connie and Art

    Ah, another week end! No appraisals, no rushing around. Just a day to relax and reflect. This week has brought at least some good news... leaking slowing down, feet feeling a bit better, nausea some better...

    Our week is winding down. After the trees came down in the wind, Roger's biopsy, and news of our assistant's moving plans life has slowed down to calm. Good news ~ Roger has only "mild irritation" of the liver. Now they want to compare the other 2 biopsies to see why the first diagnosis 13 years ago? Very interesting. I'll let you know the outcome.

    We leave on our cruise on Monday also. So, if you are out cruising I assume you will not be blogging. We'll miss you, but I couldn't get the blogs anyway. I hope it all works out for you. At least Nan is packed and ready to go. I haven't started packing yet! Too bad you aren't going the same place we are and we could go together. That would be fun. We always talked of taking a cruise together.... That's one of those "someday we will..." items that we put off and never quite do. So, we will be taking separate cruises together. Hmmm ~ I guess that will have to do this time.

    Have a blessed Sabbath.

    Love and continued prayers ~ Carol
