I am home tonight and spent the evening with my cousin, Karmalee, who has just moved here from Laramie to be near her parents. Her Dad, Lee, and my Mom are brother and sister. Karmalee is going to be staying here, watching over the pets, the house, and the gardens. It's another blessing and perfect fit ... I can breathe again. Ruby's second cousins, Lacey, a Border Collie Healer Mix, and Fat Boy, a Lab Rottweiler Mix, were welcomed with open paws. BTW ... this Rottweiler is too fine. He loves me but he loves Ruby more. Lacey is a precious luv pup and is named after my Great Uncle Lacey ... I think ... therefore it must be true. I leave in the morning at 5 to snatch Karen from the hospital and drive her to Omaha ... I'll get to see the sunrise and perhaps have a Skywatch Friday post. If not, I will have a sense of everything at home being just fine.
Speaking of which ... Karen spearheaded a team of Prairie Chicks to work with her here at the house yesterday and finish getting us settled in for Ron's return home and my sanity. Nyla, Cheryl, and Ashlee totally knocked it out of the park ... well ... out of the POD, and into the house, cleaning, dusting, and organizing along the way. Girls Rock !!!
Ron had a terrible night. His restlessness and attempts to get out of bed triggered, in my opinion, too much sedative and too much pain medication. He slept the day away, missed therapy and all three meals. Night time "freakies" are very common with hospital patients in general, but particularly with head injury. I am an expert in the "head injury" field now ... ask me anything ... I double dare you. He also has a slight fever so they are doing a blood work up tonight and I will know more about that in the morning. Prayers please. Of course, we are all expecting him to wake in the morning and say, "Hey! What's going on" ? Sorry I have nothing acceptable, photowise, to post. I may have some video in the works though ... don't ask.
