Joyce rides to the rescue

Long day, winding down, beautiful fall day, Nan spent her day sleeping in the company of reruns and Joyce Western, a long time friend from the Tracy church. Not able to sit still for long Joyce cleaned floors, sinks, showers, emptied trash and was a great help in general. Thank you Joyce for your help today.
While Joyce was here I was able to do some local work, seeing a completed home worth about 1.9 million on 5 acres, lovely home with some kind of shiny solid surface floors, great design and huge rooms. Then to another neighborhood to take photos of recently listed homes and then back home. While out I found the Taco Bell and lunch.
I've been jamming things out this evening and Nan has been a few feet away sleeping and watching TV. She needs pain doses of Dilautid every 2 to 3 hours to survive the pain and if we include some Adavan then the sleeping is extended and more restful.
Our delivery arrived on time this morning, 4 boxes of things we need to survive another week. It takes a bit to get everything put away and our little frig is packed with the supplies for life.
this evening Terry the nurse showed up at the door to just make sure the dressing for Nan's picc line was correct since our trip to ER and the ultrasound might have disturbed it. What a sweet person she is.
Tomorrow Sylvia is able to fit us into her busy schedule. She will be with nan while I head out to Danville, then Isleton, then a relo right here in Discovery Bay, fun fun.
We are trying to get the appraisals we have already seen completed and out the door.
When I think of how much we depend on the help of others it is amazing. Paper towels and Kleenex, apricots, tomatoes, soup, snacks, lunch money, house payment, we are very much in the debt of others and we appreciate the help, the christian dish, the flowers, the lotion for the body and feet wow we are lucky to have such friends and family.
This evening we heard from Sharon, she has sold her home the day before it went on the market, at least it is pending. What a blessing to her and a direct answer to prayer for her as she moves her life forward.
We are now heading for bed, long day, short of joy but long on hope.

Please pray for Nan, for pain relief, for hope, for a better set of days ahead.

    What a dream job, driving around the country side on winding roads with the windows down enjoying another beautiful fall day. Getting out of your car taking a little walk on a wonderfully landscaped yard. Going into spectacular million dollar homes and taking some photographs so you can remember your pleasant visit with the rich and famous.

    Ok, back to reality. Hurry and finish that Taco and get to your next appointment. No more donuts for you either Gerry got them all. Is that paperwork done yet? Come on!

    Heck with that just stay in pleasant land. They are the same place just a different perspective. I hope that you can keep yours on positive today. It makes all the difference in the world.

    Tell Nan that relief is on the way. They prayers are increasing and the answers are forthcoming.

    Another day comes to an end. The laundry is finished ~ again. The activities of the day are slowing to a stop for now. Actually, I hate to see the week end this time ~ Lesley is leaving us this week end. Roger and I will be doing all the work until we can find help. I can't believe we have no help as we start into our busiest month of the year. Fortunately we have several month long renters this month ~ that helps! The Lord knows our needs and will either send us help or give us strength for each day.

    Again you have had a good friend come to the rescue to stay with Nan while you are out looking for houses to appraise. You are so blessed to have so many willing friends!

    May you have a peaceful night with few awake times tonight. And may God continue to bring you peace.

    Love and prayers ~ Carol

    Hi Tim & Nan,

    Just got back from Jackson, Had a very good 5:00 Dinner(On-Line comp Coupon)) did not find too much traffic and missed the big lines at the Players Club Coupon Booth by 1/2 hour, actually came back with a few more $$ than We went up there with. When We left at 7:30 the line was nearly out the door to redeem the $50.00 comp coupons which are only good till Sunday at Midnight.

    We are going to try to come over Sabbath PM to Visit You for a bit if things are on a level that You could put up with some company. Have not seen You for several weeks and need to give You both a Personal Hug or Two.

    Rather warm today, looking for it too cool off tomorrow and continue cooling for the weekend.

    Need to do some House Cleaning & Laundry tomorrow. I guess I Should Call Carol Peden as She seems to be in that mode most of the time lately. Just a bit far away I fear.

    Carrol's Hand is healing nicely and causing Her very little discomfort. She may try to play Her Clarinet with the Band on Monday, not to sure about that Myself but She is very determined to give it a try.

    Have a restful evening and We will call You tomorrow evening to see how things are going for a Sabbath Afternoon Visit.

    Love & Prayers,

    Bob & Carrol.
