Mom and Dad just drove out of the garage and are headed to Vail for a couple of nights away from home. I am so excited for the two of them to get away together with some friends for a few days.
They are meeting my counselor and her husband up there and staying at a super swanky place that I wouldn't mind going to for a night or a week, even. They will eat out, wander Vail village shops and restaurants and have conversations that aren't about me. I think they really need the time away together and I hope they have a blast, sleep great, and and come home on Tuesday afternoon rested and refreshed.
Maddie and I are holding down the fort here. I am excited to take this big step of independence! My phone is programmed for all of the neighbors on our street, the church directory is handy and my sister is only phone call and a few minutes away.
Tomorrow and Tuesday morning, a home health caregiver is coming over to be here while I shower and to help me dress, walk Maddie, and see me off on the bus that will take me to my usual activities at the Stroke Center.
Tonight, a friend is coming over to eat dinner, watch a movie and eat lots of theater candy!
I will get myself and Maddie fed and to bed each day, so life should go pretty smoothly. I will keep my phone close just in case and will be extra careful around the house.
Will you please pray? Especially for my sweet mama to really rest and relax and not worry about me...
Thanks so much!
And get a load of this one-handed typing!! Not very quick...but I got it done in the end with some corrections here and there!
