Marilyn is home safe, calm day here

Dear Family and Friends,
Thursday evening, 10 pm, Nan is in her recliner after feeling really bad after eating her dinner. She helped me make pastry shells with sauce, lima beans and topped it with cottage cheese. I think she might have eaten too much as she was feeling pretty bad for a bit. Now she seems to be feeling better but her back hurts around the nephrostomy site on her right side. The nurse worked on her nephrostomy and last time she had to come back and redo it as it hurt too much.

Nan says that after sitting in the chair she is feeling better.

She rested up today mostly waiting for the nurse to come this afternoon. All day she wondered if Marilyn had made it home. Finally they talked and Marilyn made it home after being up all night. What dedication. We really appreciate what Marilyn did for us and I think she enjoyed being here too. What fun we had. And it was really fun when Barb and Gerry came down and they all caught up with memories.

Tomorrow we go to the doctors at 11:30, come home and get Nan settled and then I drive to Dixon for a late afternoon appraisal for a purchase. In the morning I will write things here in the office for awhile, pay the house payment and then help Nan dress and we will see the doctor. Then back to leave again. Nan will rest until I get back.

Today is our anniversary and of course Nan remembered it and I didn't. Somehow she managed to get me a card. We remembered that last year she was asleep and did not even know the anniversary had come and gone. I gave her the card when she woke up days later.

Nan found out today that Dana has arranged things and will be here on Saturday afternoon. It will be so good to see her and Nan is looking forward to it so much. Dana will like the season we are in, farmers are all selling vegetables which are so good. Oh I forgot to mention nan had me get her a bowl of squash for lunch, she was hungry, what music to my ears.

Also on Saturday Keanna has a recital for her dance classes in the morning. What fun to see our precious little girl in action. Nikki is helping with vacation bible school in Tracy this year, they are having it in the evening, what a great idea and Kim asked Nikki to help and she agreed. so Keanna will get to attend a special VBS this year.

Well its seems to be time to head to bed now.

Please pray for Nan that she will continue to recover and that somehow we can deal with the tumor growth.

Thank you for the wonderful comments to the blog today.

love to all

tim and nan

    Today will be merry of that you can be sure. Even without your wonderful friend Marilyn the day can be merry. Sure was nice to get a little extra merry stored up while she was here though.

    Welcome to another wonderful day. One in which we can love, help and enjoy the people we will met today.

    You and Nan enjoy yours!

    Good Morning,

    Well, Wes, since we are in a time zone 3 hours earlier than you the only way to get in before me is to comment the night before. You made it this time! Well, somedays I don't get to it until later in the day.....

    And yet another good news blog! Wow! this has been several days in a row now. You go girl! Yes, I know ~ you still have issues you are dealing with, but it sure is good to see the sparkle back in your eyes and just a hint of mischief.

    Roger got home safely this a.m. with only one delay in Atlanta ~ storm problems again. He's still sleeping as I head out to the "Y". I'll have to catch up on the news when I get home.

    So glad Dana is coming. Now that should give you some excitement in your life. You very well could be out shopping, playing games, remodeling your house and starting your own zoo before she leaves.

    Have a great week end and continue on with less nausea, more appetite, feeling better and enjoying life more.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol
