Well friends, we have begun to cross over into the "feeling human again" category. Brett is sleeping 3-4 hours at a stretch each night. Gone are the 2, 4 ,6 8 nights, and replacing them are the welcome 3:30, 7:30 nights. He eats a house a fire during the daytime, although when he does eat at night, he eats a good bit then too.
Merrilee and I both feel blessed and able to deal with this pattern if it continues!
Merrilee is making a little more progress each day, although she still is not at 100% yet. The ladies in our church have been so kind in bringing meals. The following ladies have brought an evening meal during the last 2 weeks: Genevela Campbell, Mary Kaufman, Melinda Mattern, Sandra Grabill, Amy Stratton, Sue Myers. Hulda Newcome is coming tonight. These ladies have been life savers, and have allowed Merrilee to heal while still eating great meals--she would have gotten tired of me fixing her hot dogs and hamburgers, and pizza etc. So, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of these kind and thoughtful ladies. Also, a shout out to Bette Maier--one of my CASA/GAL volunteers who brought a scrumptious coffee cake by the house last Tuesday--and my colleague Jean Desmond who sent some killer cookies!! Thanks ladies!
We also can't thank all of you enough for the cards, comments, calls, gifts and visits. We are so blessed to have so many great friends!
