Yet another update

We're at the library so I could get online.

I went to John's yesterday and he was very depressed! I did get him out of bed and while he was getting dressed, I drew up his insulin, took a blood sugar test, took his temp, filled his meds in the little day boxes, change the dressing on his rash, and got his ass out of the house.

We went to our favorite diner for lunch and they were really surprised to see us. We told them we wouldn't be in for more than a month, but here we were. John was perking up by the time we left the apartment, so that was good. Got some food in him and we decided to take a drive to Crystal Cave in Kutztown, PA. John always wanted to go there, so that's what we did. We were gone for about 7 hours or so!

By the time we got back home, he was his old self again. We watched some TV, ate dinner and it the sack after midnight.

Today is my last day of vacation and I have to go back home tonight, but I'll be back there on Wednesday. Today we had to go to the hospital for his blood work that he gets drawn every Monday and Wednesday, but we go to a hospital near John's place and they fax the report to the doctor in Philly. Now we're at the library and our plan is to go to the movies this afternoon.

I have some pics to put up and I'll do that tonight when I get home. I think I'm going to put a new picture on my header, with John bald!

So things are looking up. The doctors office is supposed to call in the next day or so. He has to be on this antibiotic for 5 days. We hope hope hope they'll want to re-admit him very soon! John might get pro-active and call the doctor's office in a bit. I think he should!

OK, more when I know more!!! Thanks for listening... or reading... or ... well ... you know what I mean!

I'm glad you decided to go cheer him up. It sounds like you both need cheering up but I guess more importantly, he did.

You were just what the Dr ordered.
You are better for him then anything else.

I'm glad you both have each other.

Praying that John can start his treatment soon and get home to you soon!

You're such a good woman. I look at you and try to learn to be better somehow. I want to be like you.

I'm in awe of you.

What a beautiful couple you are. I don't think I've ever seen two people who were meant to be together...more. Good for you woman. I'm proud of your strength. You're really something. Know that.
