Jim Day 5 Tuesday

5:00 Is it really Tuesday? I first saw the sun at 6 am and now its 5 pm. Tme melts.and I

Jim walked for the first time today - challenging ofcourse but he is motivated. He wants to go home. I am a bit more cautious. He has had very serious surgery and I don't want to go home before he is really ready.
-
We are now encountering new problems to solve - what do we need and how to set up when we get home.
Fortunately Robin, Karen and I have organized events - we have the skills and experience - it is a matter of identifying how we will set up the house so that he does not have to climb stairs and figuring out what supplies we need.

Feel sure there will be a story here.

This is good news. You guys amaze me, both of you. And youy're right, the home stuff is small stuff compared to what you've been through this week. It will come together, esp since you have good helpers.

God bless you all, Ellouise.

Ellouise and Jim,
Such good news. I'm glad your kids are there. Remember I am quite nearby, esp any needs for library materials delivered renewed etc. --Jane

I've just caught up on the surgery and Jim's progress forward. I'm so glad he is getting through this. Your thoughts on hospital stay are very vivid and bring back memories of times I've spent with Pap in the hospital-you described the ICU so well I felt like I was there again. Godspeed to you both!

WOW! I'm so glad to hear he's up and walking. It's always the first step that's the hardest. They won't let him leave until they know he's ready. My stay was nearly 2 weeks but I had issues with eating. I'm so happy for you both. Hang in there.
God Bless you!
