It is hard to be side lined when a loved one is in the hospital!
I am so very grateful for the messages and texts from my sisters and sister in law while Lonnie has been in the hospital.
Louis Dean and I somehow thought life would return to normal if we went to bed at a decent time and woke up before late morning. We tried that and it didn't work. I was asleep by 11:00 last night but didn't leave the bedroom until after 10:00 this morning! Apparently I need a lot of rest no matter the time I go to bed! Since my calendar is totally BLANK these days, I have given in to whatever my body needs.
I have been puttering around with the patriotic decorations a little at a time.
I only have THREE tubs of them so it is an easy theme to put out!
The dining room table is NEARLY set! Stemware and silverware and extras to come.......
I do so love the red white and blue colors and the TEXAS theme!!!
The sewing room is the most decked out room so far!!!
The den is yet to come and I have one whole tub of things to strew out in there!!!
I have reclaimed the kitchen!!
Decorations and cooking!!!
Tonight I made Chicken Alfredo - over TOAST for Louis Dean and over Spinach Garlic Egg noodles for ME!!!
Louis Dean has an aversion to PASTA that I so do NOT understand!!!
We ate dinner in the gazebo and we were BOTH happy!!!
Our one and only brother is still in the hospital due to an elevated white blood count.
He is doing SO much better than this time last night!!!
My thanks to Deanie and Nita and Michele for keeping me in the loop with messages, texts and this photo!!
I feel so helpless and wish with all my heart I could be there to comfort, encourage and cheer him on!
However, he is being very well cared for and I am here praying and thinking of him.
I was meant to go the doctor tomorrow for my post op appointment but it has been rescheduled for Friday! My wonderful doctor and his wife are having a baby so I will gladly stand back and wait my turn!
Louis Dean and I are now going out to the gazebo to close our evening!
Perhaps we will be in bed before midnight!
