It’s been awhile, friends. I apologize for not posting recently.

Scott’s still hanging in there,Ā but I’m afraid I don’t have anything new to report. He continues to be pretty healthy physically. We’ve had some ups & downs with blood pressure & heart rate, but nothing that’s really worriesome. Scott’s ST thinks his swallow has gotten weaker which is a bit concerning. Scott has his eyes open for several hours a day, but it’s not terribly predictable. You can ask his visitors who have experienced a wide range of “wakefullness”!

“His eyes are always open!”
“His eyes are never open.”
“He closes his eyes the minute I start talking.”

Don’t worry folks, he often closes his eyes the minute I start talking, too. šŸ™‚

Jenny & Pat’s wedding was lovely. We had sunshine (a crap shoot for mid-October in Michigan!) a gorgeous bride and a gracious groom. There were no serious hiccups duringĀ the ceremony and we all made it through the receptions toasts and first dances with poise. Then we honored Jen’s request to get thier money’s worth out of the bar!

It was a fabulous trip for me all in all. It was super-busy andĀ hectic, but IĀ was honored to be part of Jen & Pat’s day and so happy to see and spend time with my family.

More later! Until then, be safe and be happy!


Always Home

Hello friends!

Since I’ve last updated you Scott has gone to see two more neurologists.Ā Both are here in Frederick. The first offered a diagnosis, butĀ said he would likeĀ to see some more information from Dr. Makley from Kernan. The second said that he would like to take some more time to learn moreĀ before delivering a prognosis for Scott.

We wait some more…

Kaiser & Elsa are doing well. They accompanied me this weekend to the dropzone. It’s been since May that we’ve been there. We’ve missed our DZ friends (human and canine) so much!

Next weekend my niece is getting married, so I’m busy planning for my trip to Michigan. Eda & Dave will be holding down the fort while I’m gone. They actually have double duty with trips from Berkeley Springs to see Scott and puppy sitting.

I’ll pop in next week with an update.Ā In the mean time, feel free to stop in and visit Scott. He’s always home! šŸ™‚
