Rick was so tired today. I guess the combo of going home and then going to Levelland was a little too much for him. He still worked hard and was even able to start a cognitive test in Speech therapy. This is a test that he has never taken before because Meredith didn't think he was ready for it yet. I'm looking forward to seeing the results. He worked on balance and walking in PT and did laundry in OT. He shaved himself tonight and did a really good job; I only had to clean up his chin a little bit and shave his neck. He also cracked a joke tonight. Boots called to check on him, and when I got off the phone I was telling Rick about Bootsie's surgery he had a few months ago on his wrist. Rick said, "why did he have to have surgery?" And I said, "just old and wore out." And Rick said, "And they just stopped at his wrist?" I thought y'all would get a kick out of that, and Bootsie knows we love him!
I plan on heading home tomorrow to pack some more, and then go to Seymour to spend the night. When the kids get out of school on Thursday we'll head back to Lubbock.
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
