Good morning everyone. Time for an update. Jim is doing well in the rehabilitation hospital. He receives 3 1/2 hours of therapy each day - physical, occupational and speech. His progress is slow but we are beginning to see some signs of improvement. He can say yes, no, aha, awright. He comprehends almost everything you ask him. He shakes his head most emphatically if he does not like something and he gets a silly grin when he finds something very funny. He rolls his eyes at my sister who is quite the chatterer. He fell out of his wheelchair yesterday. Did not hurt himself but needed to learn he was not ready to be on his own yet. My sister is holding up well and the children have settled down. We have tried to keep their routine as normal as possible. Today is their son's 13th birthday so the whole family is taking dinner, birthday cake and presents and we will have supper with Jim.
I have settled to some stitching. The wreath itself is finished and it matched perfectly when the two ends came together. It is all backstitched and I am working on the lettering in the middle. I am changing the center wording so it takes some work. Will post a photo when I get home.
I am flying home on Thursday to be with my family for Thanksgiving/Christmas. My mom will be arriving on the 9th to help Sherry until we return here on Nov 1st or 2nd to help out. We celebrate Christmas at Thanksgiving every second year since we don't go home for the holidays. We put up the tree, cook the turkey and pass out presents. I am looking forward to watching the grandkids as they rip through the paper. Well, folks back to life.
Sherry and I thank everyone for their kind words and prayers!!
