Larry, you thought boot camp was tough? Wait till you see what your Arkie woman is really capable of!

True story: A friend's DH was in serious condition in hospital a few years ago. He started curling up into fetal position, refusing all attempts to care for him. My friend decided to confront him. "Are you ready to die, then?"

Answer, a mumbled "no".

"Well, that's what's about to happen if you don't do what needs to be done, & let others help."

He got the message.

Please, Larry, don't give up yet. There are folks who still need you in their world.

You forgot to ask if the can is right side up or turned sideways.

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.
That's good time Steve, nice job! I'm surprised by your comment about heavy traffic. I still think it's kind of light around here. Guess I'll find out at the end of the month when I start travels back north.

Di, I have faith in your ability to do anything you set your mind to. Sic ‘em and show him how the cow eats grass if he doesn’t listen.

Waiting for the lvad nurse to talk to the doctor, but I am thinking Larry is getting a suite at Tampa General.... it will be a private suite as they are not allowing patients to have visitors with them...

severely dehydrated, still wont drink fluids...

Even though we are worried about the virus, his overall condition is deteriorating.. local hospitals wont admit because of the LVAD, they would just send him on....

Just keep him in ohms... will post when i can

Ended up sending him to TGH, he could not walk, and I could not get him to, so called 911.... they were here in 5 minutes, got iv going and transporting him by ambulance.

I am at home, we are an hour away, but with virus protocol, I could not go into even the building, his nurse will call me when he gets in and admitted....

Prayers and OOms from our family to yours. Being separated at this time
is tough, but the Mutants stand with you.

Love always.
