Larry, Larry, Larry .... do what Di tells you to do or suffer the consequences. You have been warned! This too shall pass.

Turbohms from here Di. I could say a bunch to try to encourage, but I'd ramble....oh you knew that? OK.
This hasn't been at all easy that's for sure, but I've looked at what could be worse,....that's been helpful for me.....(and some days are really tougher than others, that's for sure).....
Like, you're home in sunny Fla, not a Brooklyn hospital, woah... (!)
Take care Larry, you two got this! Soak up some sun, even if it's through a window for now....God is here.

Hey Valerian, do as mamma says as you don't want me to get cussin Vinnie there for a visit do you, eh!

Diane, all good applications of mutant beliefs are headed your way from over to this neck of the woods aimed at both of you.

Barb, Ohms your way too.

he gets mad at me when I remind him he has to. For his heart pump as well as kidney disease....

He is very shaky and I had to get his walker out, but even that is hard. I know cardiac rehab is key....

There is nothing any of you can do, I know that, but I need lots of ohms... and maybe I just needed to vent, because I am having a really hard time...

If I take him into see his team, they will admit him and put an iv in him and there is a no visitor in effect... right now I am seriously thinking about taking him...

BUT if he continues like this, for another day then I will..... if I can get him into the car....

He must have been reading my mind, because he just drank 4 oz of apple juice, not near enough, but a start.....


I Really need lots of ommmmms... to give me wisdom to know what to do and how to handle him...

Gone from sweetness, cajoling, special homemade foods, rationalizing, explaining.... now just being insistent....


Each of you mutants have struggles as well, and I hate to ask for your thoughts and prayers for even 5 minutes, but I do think of you all each day, and even get my book out to wonder about the mutants who just stayed with us for a short time... they missed out on knowing the best group around.... love you my friends...
Mary Ann and I send prayers and ohms for health for Larry and wisdom for you, Di, our dear friend. Mary Ann can vouch for the difficulty in getting a loved one to eat and/or drink. She struggled with me for a few months and now I'm eating "better" comparatively speaking. Maybe she can send you her cattle prod that she had to use on me.

Continued prayers for you and Larry.

WE'RE HOME IN INDIANA. A 5 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. drive of 1030 miles. Traffic was unexpectedly heavy until we got to southern Indiana. The number of trucks was unbelievable on I-75, I-24, and I-65. A-hole drivers every few miles who don't have a clue about lane usage or how to pass a vehicle in less than 3 minutes. I'm sure that countless truckers wanted to have a shotgun to use on some of the fools we saw.

We're fine. We found the house in great shape. We unpacked a few essentials last night and finished the task this morning.

We will have to sort thru my closet one of these days and pull out shirts and pants that now hang on me or fall to the floor as I walk. Must visit Goodwill or Salvation Army with several bags of those items.

Our family is healthy due to common sense following of the rules. GK are e-schooling thru their home-schooling co-op ( which 4 of them attend 2 full days a week). Their mom, our daughter Jennifer, is an OT and teaches 5-6 classes at the co-op and is now teaching them online to the students of each class. Our daughter, Amy, has worked from home for a few years so no break in her routine. Her "fiance" Mark owns a construction company and he has been as busy as usual in his installing home foundations for new homes. We're counting our blessings.

Hope all of you are getting along fine. Stay safe and stay well.. Love you guys.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Di, IMHO, Larry could have complications from his diabetes that should be monitored.
Me? I wouldn’t give him a choice!
Larry, dear friend, please get examined?

Papaw and Mary Ann, glad you got home in good fashion. Now stay there!

Health wished for all RVMs.

Di, he must be Army. They can't follow directions very well. Tell that butt head to pull it out and start listening to you. Must be why the Army's mascot is the Mule!!!

Is that from nose to end of tail, or just where the tail starts?

If'n it's just where the tail starts, a lot of people will feel right at home. :-)
