Rick was sleepy again today, but I called the Medtronic nurse, Joyce, and she reassured me that he is fine. I just wonder how sleepy is too sleepy. Joyce was at the hospital the day of surgery, and she was like an angel sent from heaven. She took the time to visit with us before and after the surgery and I've called her twice since and she's been nothing but nice. She's been with Medtronic for 18 years and she knows her stuff.
He is wide awake watching the PBR now. We had a visit from Amy Bell today. So good to see her...she actually got Rick to smile when she told the story of him riding across the pasture with his reins in his mouth and his "guns up"...Amy used to be the masked rider for Tech. He tried to act like he couldn't remember the day Amy met him at the cookhouse door at the 6666's and took him down right there on the porch...his glass of tea and cake went flying! She chapped him...he paid her back later!
TLC from Lubbock will be here in the morning to evaluate Rick. I'm confident they will accept him. We should know something from insurance by the end of the week. Please pray we get moved to Lubbock!
I also changed the setting for posting a comment...hopefully more people will be able to post now.
