Well, we survived the first 2 full days at home. I am learning to give Gary Insulin shots. Someone told me to practice on an orange. I don't love an Orange, but I DO love Gary. If me giving him the shot daily (it will be only for 3 weeks) means, that he will be better, I will do it. I don't have to like it to do it.

Otherwise it's slow going. I picked up the supplies at the VA yesterday. Health Nurse is coming in today again and the PT is starting with the workout on Tuesday. She was here yesterday for the evaluation. Things are taking shape. Gary is getting better with walking around the house (with a walker of course). BABY STEPS is still the motto. Rome was not build in one day.

This week, with all the running around (I am the driver for now) I am behind in my crafting. I will make it up when things are settling down.

So glad to hear Gary is home.

Yes you can give the shots, I use to do it for my mom.

Don't worry about your crafting, just worry about you and Gary. You have to have some down time Chris, you can't run on fumes.

I hope you see this comment...

THANK YOU FOR THE beautiful blanket you made when we went to get Matthew. We use it ALL THE TIME. I have been carrying around a thank you note for you guys since our first Sunday back. I just want you to know that we are praying for Gary and we love the blanket.
