Another oldie but goodie. Think this father is nuts about his daughter?
We brought Sean and Carly to the airport this morning at 6:30. I hated to see them go but was so grateful that they had come. When Jerry came home from the hospital after bypass surgery, I remember how scared I was (and he was) that we wouldn’t know what to do. And that time we had a visiting nurse popping in each day for awhile and I had nothing to do, really, except make sure he drank enough fluids, got some exercise, got some food and meds.
With me, it as a tad more complex (a tad??) and even though Jerry was perfectly able to do it all, I didn’t want him stuck doing it all on his own. God bless Sean for coming so they could rely on each other to remember everything because, let’s face it, I was no help at all in the beginning. In the last two days, I’ve finally started asking Jerry what he’s doing and how he’s doing it so I can gradually take over some of the work. Until now, I have had absolutely no interest in anything except sitting around helpless and having people wait on me.
And I was so glad Carly came. I know how busy she is. Lawyers in New York do NOT have easy, laid back lives and I was so grateful she hopped on a plane to come see us. Sean lucked out when he found that girl. We are crazy about her. They’re moving to Los Angeles, probably some time this summer. Sean is going to get his MBA from UCLA and Carly will join a firm there. She’s already had one offer..not exactly the one she wants but if the perfect job doesn’t come around, at least she has a job out there.
So now we’re on our own (and that’s fine). Anne and Clark were here and left again to go to Memphis on business. They’ll be back tomorrow until Friday…don’t know how they keep up the pace but they do.
My back is fine (but whether it’s fine without Tramadol I haven’t had the nerve to check yet) My back wasn’t all that great in the middle of the night and so I was doing the cat and the cow on the bed around 2:00 when I felt a pop…oops. I was kneeling on my feeding tube and when I moved, it pulled one section out. NOT out of me, thank God. That would have been a minor crisis. This was easy to put back together but I learned my lesson. Note to self..no yoga while I’m hooked up to the feeding tube.
I’m trying to walk for an hour a day…in twenty minute segments …but I’ll probably not get to an hour today….way too lazy. I had a lot of shopping to do today …What on earth did we do without Amazon? Lana desperately wants the Lego cruise ship and her birthday is coming. She’s going to get it early so I can help her with it (I honestly do NOT love working on Lego things…way too much can go wrong and then you have to pull the whole thing apart and start all over..drives me nuts. The things we do for our grandchildren) I ordered the caterpillars from Insect Lore again this year. It’s an amazing gift and I highly recommend it to anyone with kids or grandkids. There is something so incredible about watching caterpillars get bigger and bigger and then form a chrysalis and emerge as butterflies. I’m as enchanted by it as the kids are.
Call the Midwife is on tonight. Love that show. Perfect way to end a perfect day.
