Home Again

Saturday we arrived home around dinner time.  John and Ashley welcomed us with a fire in the fireplace, beautiful mood lighting around the house and a wonderful lasagna dinner.  It is good to be home!

Sunday Dick was able to watch the Vikings with Mike and Jonathan.  During the commercials and after the game they helped me move the treadmill upstairs to the porch and moved Dick's office to our kitchen table. The boys took him through his exercises and had him saying his tongue twisters, many of which I can not say.
Pertaining to living in our three story home, we have considered all possibilities and the one we are going with for the moment is, one time down the stairs in the morning. one time up the stairs at night, and never to the basement.  It is not that he can't do stairs, but rather that he is somewhat nervous about the stairs.  Even last night, after realizing that they weren't so bad, he went upstairs early so I could change his dressing early and go to bed.  My back was really giving me fits and I needed to get off my feet.
Inch by inch, everyday more progress, more strength, more confidence.

On the whole, things are going well.  We are nestling in for the winter.

  1. I am relieved you are home. Every morning Darrell and I pray that the Lord will protect you both and sustain you until your surgeries. What a journey!
