I have some wonderful friends, both IRL and in Blog-land. Bob received some wonderful get well cards, and I'm really grateful for the love and humor that has brightened his day. If you happen to have our address, some time, a card & an extra stamp, please send more!
He's had phone calls from Carrie in NC, which have really brightened his day. Sharon and Oden spent the day here on Sunday, I even made Chicken and Dumplings; Oden's favorite. I have truly wonderful daughters.
When asked how Bob is doing, I'm replying, "He's about Medium." This is how I interpret medium:
Bob's pain is under control, for the most part. Yesterday, I even "caught" him walking without his cane.
Bob and I are temporarily traveling as a pod, you know like old people who are always together? So, "we" had an appt. with our GP on Tuesday, and she was able to give him an injection that is helping, temporarily with the back pain. Bob has absolutely no appetite, not normal, and is nauseous much of the time, so she also addressed that. She held off doing more tests, right now, because "he has enough going on."
In addition to the pain Bob has heart problems and diabetes; nothing is ever simple at the Prytz household! Tomorrow, "we" see the cardiologist. While in the hospital, Bob had a couple of "cardiac episodes"; so that has to be investigated. On Monday "we" see the pain management specialist; he visited Bob three times in the hospital, and thinks he's found how to solve this problem. Keep your fingers crossed, and keep sending prayers and good thoughts Bob's way.
In my spare time, I finished a quilt top and back. I hope to get some photos taken today and a post on Janice Elaine Sews. Check over there; if you're interested, in a couple of hours.
Be well and do good,
