Last two days have been pretty intense. The feeding tube clogged Monday night. Tuesday morning we bundled into the car in the midst of what people said was the worst storm in these parts in 10 years for an emergency procedure to replace an errant tube. Maybe worst snow and wind I have ever traveled in. Finally arrived in time for the procedure and before doc left. Lin kept her composure all through the journey (although she did say “I am catatonic” when I asked her, halfway through our journey, how she was doing—but I thought catatonic people couldn’t talk—once again, Catch 22, I suppose). Last part of the journey, wheelchair for a block in a blizzard, was the most interesting. We all arrived caked with snow and red of nose and cheek and a rime of white around our eyes. Our friend Kay Davis came over after the procedure and got us in his 4WD jeep and we abandoned the car to the elements.
Back home, noticing loads of flowers in our bedroom, where Lin is staying. Very nice. Lots of bird visitors with the ground so snow covered and all. Someone said 16 inches. Lots of sunshine today.
Lin is getting stronger every day. Quite a workout yesterday to and from the car in the snow with a walker. Her sense of humor persists and she effectively supervises us assistant nurses so we “do it right”.
Our Baltimore friends from the early 70’s Pete and Betty Addicks cooking lots of good soup and such. I have gained a few ounces so must keep up exercise.
Adelyn our (lone) daughter Kadra’s daughter, with us all snowed in, has taken to me like white to rice…maybe it’s all the angel food cake I feed her.
Antibiotics soon to end. Doc is pleased with progress. I am pleased with progress. Just the tube glitch.
Austin resumes charge nurse duties today coming back from Austin Texas where he ran a half marathon. He feels like he more half ran a half marathon than ran.
