Good News/Bad News

Well, the events of the past week have been, how do you say, eventful?  Ron called me Monday evening saying he thought he had just experienced a sudden onset of Alzheimers.  He went to get in his car to come home and couldn't find it.   It wasn't due to Alzheimers but to the fact that it had been stolen.  After notifying security personnel and the police he finally got home about 10:00 pm.  Of course the Good News was he wasn't carjacked while in the car!

But the week progressed on a higher note.  We saw Ron's oncologist on Tuesday and his CT scan results were good.  She said he is stable.  No change.  The spots in his lungs hadn't changed and she even said she is beginning to think they may merely be scar tissue.  So he's been stable over a year now and that's the best news of all. 

Then yesterday I spent the day in the city with my son-in-law while my daughter had surgery.  They were expecting the doctor would have to do a full fusion on her wrist but he was able to save some function.  She will still have some movement (she can still do the queen's wave) and that was much better than expected.  She was in a lot of pain afterwards but I'm hoping she's better today.  She has a titanium plate, screws and pins in her wrist so it's bound to hurt for awhile.  The pins will be removed later.

Then twin #1 had a chair dropped on her foot and she broke 4 toes.  The next day one of her students dropped another chair on it and then that evening her husband accidently stepped on her foot. But she managed to hobble herself to her sister's house last night to stay with her.  She was great and able to get Jamie's pain under control and the two of them cuddled up in bed together and watched movies.  That twin bond........I love it!

So, that was our week!  But we are all still here and life goes on.  Can't ask for more than that!

I guess we are going car shopping today.

Good Lord. What a day/week! Sorry about the car and the chair dropping - very happy to learn the spots may not be anything bad!

Merry Christmas.
