Ever Changing

The Absentee Shawnee Nation opened a new Indian health clinic just 20 miles from us which is about 20 miles closer than the Pottawatomie clinic we’ve been going to for years.  Since my doctor just left and Mike’s psychiatrist left I thought this might be a good time to check out this new clinic. 

Mike will see the new psychiatrist on the 9th of August.  He’s excited and happy the clinic is so much closer to home.  So we will see how things go.

Mike is doing great.  He’s getting better every day and seems genuinely content if not down right happy.  His dependence on me has greatly decreased and that’s definitely better for him.

I feel like I’m in a marathon to get myself well before Ron’s next CT scan.  I’m going to physical therapy for about 9 hours/week.  The progress is very, very, slow but I’m hoping by the end of the month I see a marked improvement.

We were worried that Ron might be losing his job but fortunately they were able to acquire a new contract to take the place of the one they lost.  So that’s good.  His health insurance will remain intact.

So if we can just be blessed one more time and dodge the surgery bullet things will be better than they’ve been in a very long time.  I might even get to take the trip to N. Carolina that we’ve been hoping to take in October. 

So please keep those fingers crossed!  I’m praying the spot on his lung is shrinking…………..

Fingers and toes...all crossed.
Makes it hard to get much done, but it seems like things are looking up out your way so I'll do what I can to help.

Great news about Ron's job and I hope the new doc doesn't change Mike's treatment since he is doing so well.
You are on a roll and I will pray that only good things come your way.
