Another week

Well, we have been at Hook for 5 days. It has been an adjustment but everyone has been good to us. Therapy has been stepped up and Jim is busy most of the day. But the weekend is very quiet in comparison, and pretty boring for him. Although, Sunday was fun for him. Steve Korn, an old friend of ours, now living in Arizona, and his sister Linda and his mom, visited with Jim and I. (Hi Helen!. Thank you for all your support) Also, our son Andrew and his family came a little later. Jim loves seeing all of them. He REALLY enjoyed that.

Jim entertained all. It was good to see him laugh.

There are two thing you could all pray for this week. One, Jim should be getting a cat scan of his neck by the end of the week. If it is not healed, surgery may be his last hope. The other is, it is possible he will have his first pass to go out with me on the week-end. This is exciting, but a little scary, too.

I will let you know how it all goes. (Hello to all at the VA, Parkview and St Joe)

Oh, my God, how is everything going! We all, here at VA miss you and Jim so much! Is he adjusting well? We are worried, naturally, we all have become so close. I'm sure you are watching over things and making sure he's okay. Our unit has not at all been the same... We are praying for all of you and again we miss you very much!!!!! Thank you for all the nice things you said about us in my previous reading! Thinking about you all and missing you much!!

Dear Jim and Sue,
Well, you are one step closer to coming home. What an amazing trip! Congratulations on your new granddaughter. We'll all be excited to meet her. We will pray for the scan and hope that the neck is healing. A date, just the two of you . . . Considering the road you have been on for the past 6 months, that is almost unbelievable. We hope that all will go well and that after all the fears and planning, it will actually be an enjoyable time. You all continue to be in our prayers and our thoughts.
Ron and Minda
