Sorry for the late hour but our power has been out.
After weeks of praying for Jim I have been saying a lot of prayers of thanks in the last few days. He is doing so very well. They removed that tube this afternoon. He feels so much better, it had been bothering him a great deal in the last few days.
He was allowed to have cream of chicken soup and chocolate pudding with whipped cream, two favorites but he was especially happy to have his cold glass of milk again. He tolerated it all very well.
Seems he wont need to escape after all. Dr. says going home on Tuesday is very possible but maybe not till Wed. I am preparing for his homecoming. He is so weak I am afraid he might fall. I want to be sure all his needs are addressed. I maybe over doing it a bit but I don’t want to have to leave him alone while I run out to get something he needs in the first few days at least.
He has an appointment with the dietitian tomorrow afternoon per his request. He wants to know what he can and can’t have which tells me he is going to be very cautious, for a while at least.
Whilst the power was out I made Jim’s card for tomorrow by the light of a battery operated lantern. You’ll have to wait to see it but here is his card for today.
We had a scary storm this evening. With thunder boomers you can feel deep in your chest, lightening, strong winds and finally heavy rains. I am always exhilarated by storms like this but the potential for fires is frightening. We had the longest spring in my memory, seems summer has been trying to make up for lost time now. It’s been HOT!!! 104 today! The temperature dropped from 95 to 75 in less the half an hour once the rains came.
The long cool damp spring has brought us lots of vegetation, unfortunately it is all dried out now and the rains didn't lasted long enough to be of help, we are still under red flag warnings. It wont take much to to touch off a brush or forest fire. We are told to expect more storms like this minus the rains over the next three days.
I am so grateful we have the VERY BEST firefighters on the planet in our area. They have kept fires from getting out of control under extreme conditions year after year. It is a comfort to know they stand at the ready. Our military put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms, these men and women put their lives on the line to protect our lives and homes. They are our unsung heroes in my eyes. I feel they should be given just as much respect and honor as our military heroes.
I am hopeful once I get Jim home and settled I will finally be able to comment on your lovely blogs again. I don’t think I’ve done that for well over a month. See Ya tomorrow, weather permitting.
