Thanks for your posts! I'm sorry I haven't been on much this past week, but do want you to know how much your words are appreciated.
Daniel was here Tuesday afternoon and evening. We had a grand opening of our new Walmart Supercenter. At long last we have one in my town!!! We thought one of the Ohio State football players was going to make an appearance at WM but it's next Tuesday. We were told wrong. Daniel was SO disappointed that his favorite player wasn't there. I felt so bad for him because he had been excited and counting on seeing him ever since Sunday. He had asked us Sunday if we'd take him out to Walmart and of course we said sure. Thank goodness I called WM Tues. before we went out to ask where they were setting up the table for the guy...so we'd know before we got out there in that crowd. That's when they told me he wasn't there. I had to hang up and look Daniel in the eye and tell him the bad news. He was all ready...had his Ohio State shirt and hat we bought him and the new Ohio State jacket we bought him for Christmas. After we ate, we went out to Walmart anyway and let him shop and get some cool things. At least he had fun doing that and motoring around with the electric cart. We took him back to Greenville at 10PM so he did have the afternoon and evening with us.
There's no big news to report, but it's still noticeable that he is improving week to week. They're working on him being able to get up if he should fall. One thing-- he now can walk into a store with just his cane--or a restaurant! He tires out if he is up too long. It makes it so much easier to go out to eat and he feels so much better not having to be wheeled in. In fact we rarely take the wheel chair anymore.
I'm supposed to tell you all again a big hi from him and thanks for the prayers!! He sends love and hugs. When he talks about you to people they think he's talking about family!
He is of course, but they think he means family right around here!
