Grasping at normalcy

First of all, sorry for not updating sooner. This weekend saw me go through a whole range of emotions but the past several days have been much better. Mom continues to improve and today has probably been the best day she's had since before everything began. She actually told me "I think I'm gonna make it." Prospects are looking good for her to move to the skilled nursing home for rehab as early as Friday, which would be awesome since her b-day is Saturday. I have started the processes to get assistance with her hospital bill and Medicaid for her stay at the nursing home and it wasn't as hard as I thought. Please continue to pray, I feel like I'm in a minefield where one wrong move will blow everything up for her. She deserves the best possible care she can get and I definitely wanna make that possible.

Shasta and I got to spend sometime with our friends Randy & Mara and their brand new baby Eli, what a great experience. It is awesome to see the joy that he's brought into their lives. We also got to visit with our puppies and last night I actually made dinner and we watched a movie at home. It was soooo nice to be able to do that and just spend time with my wife. I've said it before but I don't think I would have made it through this without her.

This is all very good news. I have had you on my mind - just been so busy - glad to hear an update.

Glad you and Shasta got some quiet down time.
