Hello Marie. I never knew Russ was such a baby. He will not stay alone. Tom even sleeps there. Russ is 88 and death on his mind. I hope Tom does not get in trouble at work/ Russ's insurance pays for home nursing care and for physical therapy so that is a relief/ I am alone but guess I am made of stronger stuff. The floor looks great. We bought a rug for it nice match. How did your entertaining go.? I think Russ might come home tomorrow. Give my best to Ed. Take good care.HUGS,POPS

Marie- Thanks for checking in with me. We are pretty much setttled in our new home. The boxes are all unpacked and the kitchen set up. The only thing left is to hang the pictures on the walls. We do have quite a bit of room for things as there are 2 bedrooms and a den plus a large living room snd dining area next to the kitchen. It is very comfortable. I do enjoy having no steps, as there were lots of steps in the house. I try to walk more than I did at the house. It is flat here and the house was on a steep hill. It was definitely a good move.
We need to say special prayers for Lots, if you go to Cathy's page you will see the message about her health. I am sorry to say it is not good. We need to send her many HUGS.
I hope you are doing OK. My BG have been up and down since the move. I think the stress of moving got to me. I am trying to get them more regulated. My best to Ed. Cat

Hello Marie. I cannot sleep. Conflicting stories. His PCP said he could go home Tyesday. He asked w3ho is there to help-? My cousin and he is in a wheelchair. The heart doctor wants him to do physical therapy. Not like whereI was but a place he will get therapy every day. Russ dies not have Medicare so I w3ill check with his insurabce company there are loads of therapists who fit the bill. Kitchen 85% done. Hope things ok with you. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

I haven't heard from Lots of Shots in about two months. Have you heard from her. I am worried about her. I've tried calling writing on her page and her private email. Do you think she's alright? What can we do if she isn't?
