So, we didn't make it to Baylor. Insurance was not returning phone calls and TLC in Lubbock had already planned to evaluate Rick next week. Since Rick is doing better, we decided it would be best not to muddy the waters with insurance and confuse them about a move to Baylor and then a move to TLC. TLC will be here on Monday and we should know something Wednesday. Rick had a much better day today. He went to bed @ 6:30 last night and didn't wake up until 8 this morning! I checked on him at midnight and he was sleeping like a log...I think the medicine has kicked in enough that he's relaxed and feels good, so he's sleeping good. He did a little PT, OT and ST today. In PT, Christie walked him and she could tell the tone has given because Rick is weak. What happens is tone stiffens the muscles and actually helps you to stand and walk. When you take the tone away, then you can evaluate the underlying muscle. Rick's muscles are weak, and now we have to start building strength. Rick has a huge advantage in being so healthy and strong before his accident...this will help him get his strength back quicker. Bryan came by again today and visited while we had lunch. This afternoon there was a Halloween Party at the rec center and we went and listened to some of the worst karyokee you've ever heard, but it was fun. He took a 2 hour nap this afternoon, cleaned his plate at supper, and is now watching TV, waiting on his first shower since his surgery.
I felt sorry for myself last night watching the World Series all by myself...well not by myself, but not with Rick like was have for 14 years! Seriously...we always watch the World Series and last night he was in bed, so I watched it with Walter! For once he wasn't wondering around and sat and watched 4 innings of the game. Walter also sang "Happy Trails" today at the Halloween Party...he's a good singer.
The kids are in Guthrie this weekend. Jodi is having a surprise B-day party for Riley tonight and then on to the football game. Tomorrow is the fall festival and trick or treating. You can get on my FB page and see some pics of the kids in their Halloween costumes that Lori Moss and Anna Livingston posted...really cute...and thanks for posting those!
I read in my bible last night that you should consider trials as tests...put you faith in God and you will pass your test and not have to take it again! Good advice Joyce Meyer!
