Conquering steps and stairs, in and out of the car, putting on his own socks and shoes. There is no end to the progress being made here in Midcoast Maine. Here are some pics from today’s adventure.
This was Lou’s two week post-surgery appointment in Bangor. It went amazingly well. We got there at 10:30 am, Lou was taken right to x-ray. Then he went in the exam room and the doctor came right in. Everything looks good and he was cautioned not to try to do too much, too soon. A look at the x-rays:
Let’s skip back to Monday. Don’t think we made the Care Team work continuously every day, they managed to get some relaxation and fine dining in on their last full day. The Sisters started with an early lunch at Young’s Lobster Pound. They love Oysters! They followed up with a shopping trip at Hannaford where they picked up their lobsters – I imagine they will be sharing Christmas Cards with the oyster and lobster folks.
Sadly, the Traveling Sisters Care Team had to be awake early, when the car service arrived at 3:45am. I happened to be up, so came down and got a pic of them with Ross. Ross has driven them numerous times. They had a few delay scares on the way home, but did manage to catch each flight and they are now safely home in California. We are so grateful, and appreciative of Catherine and Beth using their vacation time to help get us through Lou’s recovery time.
