I HAD A DREAM....IT WAS VERY EDUCATIONAL--- AND UPSETTING....MUST BE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE AN ALTZHEIMER PATIENT... I WAS ON A BICYCLE RIDING THRU A NEIGHBORHOOD OF VERY SIMILAR HOMES WITH DEAD ENDS THAT HAD A TURN AROUND AT A RIVER --- TRYING TO ORIENT MYSELF.... I WATCHED THAT WATER FLOWING TOWARD MY LEFT I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHERE I WAS... OR HOW TO GET HOME... AND I HAD TO ASK A POLICEMAN FOR HELP.
NOW THAT I AM AWAKE ( I THINK)-- I KNOW THAT NEIGHBORHOOD-- IT IS IN LAWRENCE MASS.. NEAR THE NEW BALLANCE SNEAKER OUTLET .. THE WATER FLOWING LEFT MUST HAVE BEEN THE MERRIMAC RIVER.
I AM NOT GOING TO RIDE ANY BICYCLES IN THE NEAR FUTURE.... !!
MAIL CALL-- SOMEONE ASKED WHEN I HAD TAKEN A VACATION - AND WHEN WOULD I AGAIN? WELL BEFORE MARRIAGE AND CHILDREN I WENT ALOT OF PLACES.... AFTER THAT??? ONCE-- ABOUT 1990 , I DID MEET AN EDINBURGH FRIEND AND WANDER AROUND GERMANY LOOKING AT GREAT DANES FOR A WEEK.- AND ONCE I SPENT A WEEKEND FLOATING DOWN THE COLORADO RIVER.. THAT 'S IT. OTHER THAN THAT, I CAN'T REMEMBER ANY.. YOU CAN'T COUNT MY HUSBANDS MEDICAL CONFERENCES OR EXCURSIONS TO RACE TRACKS AS ANY VACATION OF MINE... AND NOW-- I HAVE SPENT YEARS PUTTING TOGETHER AN AMUSING EXISTANCE RIGHT HERE WITHOUT HAVING TO GO THRU ANY 4 HOUR SECURITY CHECK AND 3 HOURS BEING NERVOUS THAT THERE ARE NO GEESE TO GET IN THE ENGINES BETWEEN HOME AND SOMEWHERE WHERE I AM TO SIT IN THE HOT SUN AND GET MY CLOTHES FULL OF SAND.
THE ONLY PLACE I WOULD LIKE TO SEE-- FOR ABOUT AN HOUR IS THE PACKAGE SORTING ESTABLISHMENT OF FEDEX IN ?MEMPHIS TENN?
BIGGEST NEWS OF TEH DAY ? GROMET AND OPAL HAD A TIE FOR 9 MINUTES..... I KNOW WE HAVE SOME NEW PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT UNDERSTAND THE SOMEWHAT BIZZARRE PROCESS OF PUPPY MAKING. HOW TO EXPLAIN? BRIEFLY, IF THE PAIR ARE NOT RENDERED IMMOBILE FOR MORE THAN 5 MINUTES IT IS SAID IT DOESN'T "WORK" .. YESTERDAY WAS ABOUT DAY 10 SO I ASSUME WE HAVE A FEW MORE GO ROUNDS BEFORE SHE SENDS HIM PACKING WITH THOSE LOVELY LONG CANINE TEETH OF HERS. MANY DOG PEOPLE MUZZLE THE FEMALE. ....BEING A WOMAN.... I DON'T INTERFERE - SDP STUD DOGS ARE VERY EDUCATED AND POLITE ( OR THEY GET BITTEN)
MOMMY NATURE CAN EDUCATE FATHER TIME...
DIRT MOVING OF THE MASSIVE VARIETY- HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED AND WE HAVE A PRETTY GOOD RAMP DOWN INTO THE AREA NEXT TO THE FLAT FIELD-- THE MINUTE THESE MONSTER MACHINES GET THRU, I WANT TO PUT SOME CLIMBING PLANTS NEXT TO THE FENCES BEFORE TEH WILD VINES AND PRICKERBUSHES GET GOING... I AM NOT SURE, BUT I THINK YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SEE THE FENCE ACROSS THE FLAT FIELD-- IT IS A DOULBE FENCE SO THE DOGS CAN'T GET AT IT.
THE LAWYER CAME HERE TO LOOK OVER THE ESTABLISHMENT-- HE IS TH E ONE DEALING WITH THE BUILDING INSPECTOR-- HE THINKS THERE SHOULD BE NO QUESTION.. AND IS PRETTY SURE THE PROBLEM IS USING WHAT IS MY DRIVEWAY TO LOT #45 -- THE BARN LOT.
AWESOME ANNIE 'S BROTHER ROBERT---AND A NEIGHBOR CAME TO PICK UP HER CAR -- HE HAS TO GO BACK TO GEORGIA FOR WORK, BUT THE NEIGHBOR VOWED HE WOULD STAY IN TOUCH... WE WILL TRY AND GET SOMEONE IN TO SEE HER TODAY... GRACE SPEAKS THE HOSPITAL LANGUAGE - SO THAT IS HOW WE GET ANY INFORMATION LIKE WHERE SHE IS. WE SENT IN A HANDFUL OF PICTURES OF POCKETS AND A HANDFUL OF POKERCHIPS FOR HER TO GIVE OUT. SO NO NURES THINKS SHE IS NUTS TALKING ABOUT DONKEYS.
Well this young lady was off to Middle school today. She said she loved it and had a great time. She was able to get George on and off the bus with no problem and I guess he even behaved because nobody called saying he didn't. (ed... I LOVE RACHAEL'S APPROACH !!) Bella was able to meet a bunch of Gabi's old teachers. So everyone would
ask her if she was Gabis sister. Bella could proudly say yes! She looks up to her big sister and was happy when they knew her because of her sister. Then this evening Bella learned a new trick! We may have to get video of this one. So she has been riding her 2 wheeler for a while now. She does awesome
but has trouble starting and stopping. So when she wants to stop someone has to be there to catch her. But today, SHE STOPPED!!!! She rode down to Ed to go inside and she stopped and got off her bike without his help! She was so proud she did it about 5 more times just so we all knew she could do it.
So proud of my girl. It takes some stress of now going for a ride that she isn't going to fall if no one is there to catch her. Tomorrow is infusion day. We are still waiting for an update from Dr Karlin and Dr Kasser. I am anxious to see what they both came up with for a plan. I figure I will try very hard to wait
until Friday morning and if I haven't heard I will call Dr Karlins office then. So we shall see. Once I know I will fill you all in! Than you again for all the love and support you show our family. Almost 20,000 of you! So amazing. Love Bella and George
I WAS THE YOUNGER SISTER IN OUR FAMILY-- AND I HEARD SOOOOO MUCH ABOUT HOW MY OLDER SISTER - FRAN - WAS WONDERFUL--SHE WAS A PERFECT STUDENT.. SHE COULD SPELL...I COULD NOT..MY ANSWER WAS MORE... WAS MORE "%^&*()_"
