Larry's son, wife and our granddaughter, Rachel (4 yrs) came over for lunch today. We had pizza and salad and Larry actually ate about 4-5 pieces and a salad. Rachel played with these bendable things that come in all colors. Her mom and dad also played with them and said this keeps Rachel busy for hours. We persuaded Larry to go outside on the patio and Rachel entertained us with her dancing. It was about 80 degrees! :hot: We all got some vitamin D. I had a nice lunch with my friends last Thursday. We had not been able to get together for several months. It's nice to be able to talk to friends and unload. Friday Larry's friend from his carpool and workdays came with his wife. We had not seen his friend much since Larry came home. It's funny how friends will come to the hospital when Larry is half out of it or tired but when home - they disappear. I wish he would have more visitors now! Larry has been going to his independent exercise program at the outpatient rehab center. He works on several machines, does some stretching and works at the parallel bars doing backward walking, side stepping and stepping up on blocks. :happydance: He works much harder at the center than at home so it is worth the time and cost (which is reasonable). There was a floral spray toward the back of the center last week and I asked about it. They said one of their patients had passed away. They said since the therapists were like family, they brought it to them as a tribute to their help.
I thought to myself that they are like family in as much as they have helped us over the last year.
