He's Home

Friday morning about 10 o'clock my son arrived from Colorado and we went to the home to bring Hubby home. Imagine he wasn't even ready. But that didn't matter by 11 or so we were home and in the house and he did very well walking with the walker of course but sat in his lift chair for a long time. Till lunch time and he did come to the table to eat.

We had gotten a hospital bed for him compliments of the Ruitan club, on Thursday. So all was ready for him. So far so good. He has been sleeping in his bed at night. For the last couple years he stayed in his chair day and night.

Our Daughter came after she had finished with her school day and extra teaching for a home bound student. So the complete original family was all together for the weekend. What fun and what a big help for me. Here is a picture of them taken this past Christmas. She is so good helping with her dad. DS did a lot of things for me. First off, because they were calling for rain on Saturday, he cleaned out the spouting at the front of the house. It has covers but with all the trees we have and after 6 years they really needed it.

The the big project was running a new cable line to the bedroom so Hubby could have his TV if he was going to sleep in there. He kept the TV on all the time. So it had to be run the complete length of the house. Both of them worked on these. Then when he hooked it up the TVs all worked but not my Internet. I have broadband through the cable company. So he had to figure what was wrong. For someone who designs rockets and working now on the new space vehicles, this wasn't too big of a problem

Saturday DS said he would go out to Outback and get us all supper. Mainly a lobster for his Dad. So that was a big treat and another meal I didn't have to cook. DD did most of the dishes while she was here. Had to go back home about 2 on Sunday because of something else on tap . So far Hubby likes his bed and has slept pretty good. At least he hasn't woke me up yet.

DS leaves tomorrow and he will be missed. But he has to get back to work and his family in Colorado.

Now I see that this is my 200 post so tomorrow I will post a giveaway for the end of the week so stop back.

Glad to know UGeo is home! What a treat to have both dc home for a bit. I'm glad they were a big help to you as well.

I have your brother & SIL here and we are having a good time. I'll have pictures up soon from K's grad.

Great news! I bet the bed is more comfortable than a chair to sleep in....

I'm glad to hear that your DH is home again and making the adjustment well. Wonderful that your son and daughter could be there to help and to love on their parents. It's great to have the original family together for a bit. I'm hoping and praying that life will settle down to a pleasant and contented purr for you both.

I am glad DH is home, and equally glad DS is back home and doing well too. I know this is a big job for you, and hope it all goes well. Our own beds always feel the best!

So Eileen, I want to know if that is tile in a quilt pattern between your countertop and cabinets. We are wanting to tile our kitchen there, and wow, if I could do a quilt pattern it would be awesome. Let me know. -Julie from QH
