Bonne Année 2019 Lee and Gerry
Thanks for the update Gerry. So glad you know she is getting the best of care and kindness in your absence.Sleep is the best medicine and with that thought and seeing as you are on the road get some good rest yourself. You never know how tired you are until stop. So travel,sleep,work,sleep and you will feel like the more you sleep the more tired you are. That is because you have been too busy to allow it to hit you. You do need to schedule a day here and there where all you do is eat and sleep. You need it and you so deserve it. Lee needs you in top form.Hi Everybody... sorry I've been away from the board.
Thanks so much for the cards, flowers, and thoughts... Lee is once again coming along, although she is awfully tired and slow to improve. Sleep right now must be a good thing for her, because she is certainly doing her part to catch up. Today is Day 778. Wow.
Her nurses and care staff are wonderful, and do a great job of helping her through every day... they chat with her, rub her feet, and really do wonderful work... I just am amazed at how hard they all work to help my wife get back to her old self.
Overall, Lee's health is continuing to improve; she is still very weak, but the improvements from that point have been slow all through this process. One of her caregivers told us that you need to BE well, to GET well... and that the better you get, the faster you get better. I probably didn't understand that the first time, but I've seen it myself a few times, and I get it now... the goal here is patience and small gains, to get ready for larger gains later.
Patience sucks. I gots none of that stuff..But every day is another day, and that's something, anyway.
I'm away working again now, and the next few months will be ugly, with me on the road and her in her room... I hope she can get back to the point where she phones me every night (and 5 times a day when I'm working!), just to talk.
Anyway, better go. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes. Lee has nice friends, and I'm glad to know you.
you will have to play around a bit to find them (the link was there during event)
