Friday ...">Good day to end the work week on I guess. Had unexpected company, Bob's cousin and wife, come in on Tuesday evening, and they have already headed back out early this morning. That's the kind of company to have, just long enough to find out how everyone is doing, reminisce about old times, and then leave. What is that saying about company being like fish? Something about after 3 days they start stinking? It was great to see them, and hopefully I will make it up to Maine this summer to see them and the rest of the family.
S is making it day by day at the nursing home. They are trying to get her over to the north side, where they know her and are used to her ways. I give her so much credit for keeping it together right now. Wonderful news, the speech therapist was in yesterday, and they tested her on honey thick liquids, and she did very well. There is no reason to think that she will not be able to have the feeding tube removed eventually. S is estatic about this possibility. As soon as I got there, she told me about having 2 milk shakes with the therapist, and not choking on anything. I gave her another milk before I left her last night without any problems. She followed all the instructions about small sips, tucking her chin down, and keeping her mouth shut as she begins to swallow. There is such a bright light at the end of that tunnel.
All in all this has been a great week, and today being Friday just rounds it all out for me.
