We enjoyed my daughter's visit
My daughter came for a short visit. She will be changing to a new job and had some time off in between. She is a big supporter and cheerleader for Larry and he is always happy to see her come here. It was very hard on her to see him last year at this time in the rehab facility. She kept saying her allergies were bothering her, but she had a hard time seeing Larry in his early stroke period. I told Larry we will be going out to eat as he is not too keen on this right now. We went out for dinner the first night and the place has a wide variety. I mentioned about 8 different things from the menu - pasta, seafood, hamburger, etc. and he finally settled on the old chicken finger platter. He did have the baked potato soup also, and ice cream again, when we got home. I am still trying to figure out what affects his taste buds, and what he will eat. :uhm: We also went car shopping. Both of our cars are old, and the Honda Accord is about 17 yrs. old and 134,00 miles. We were looking to see if the new Honda's had more head room. I hate car shopping, but Larry use to be quite the negotiator. Several years ago he got a price from the dealer, and when he said the floor mats would be extra, Larry got up and walked out. The guy just sat there stunned. LOL I hope I can do this myself. I don't know if I know when to stop and say "Its a deal". I don't think Larry will know this time around either. He will just be glad to get it over with. I noticed Larry is more talkative with my daughter when she comes. She talks to him like he was just the same as he was before the stroke and also tells him what is going on with her job, etc. His kids come over and I don't think they know or care or are just in too much of a hurry. I'll say "well Larry did well in therapy today" and they will say "Oh, good dad". End of conversation. Oh well. I have learned not to expect too much. Well, I guess I'd better get off before Larry thinks of something else for me to do. Now what will I fix for dinner???
