  • Mainely Improving …
    Didn’t realize a couple of days have slipped by without an update. The routine has been mostly the same, the Traveling Sisters Care Team continues to feed us, and they handle a lot of Lou’s needs as well. My main job is providing motivation, and it is working. […]
  • What is Happening in Maine?
    Things are going well. Lou continues to improve each day, and we continue to improve our care techniques 😂. So far, I have only made a few mistakes (backwards underwear, two feet in the same leg, and backwards pants). Today was change the sheets day, so the Traveling […]
  • Day 6 Update
    Apologies for not posting this update yesterday. The day was a whirlwind, and I fell asleep with a dog in my lap when I sat down to write a post: The Traveling Sisters Care Team has been a Godsend. They have taken over snacks and meals, and are […]

  • Today is the Day
    Thinking good thoughts as we prepare to take off for Bangor. Lou’s knee replacement surgery is scheduled for 12:40pm, and we need to get him there by 10:30am. It was nice not to have to get up at the crack of dawn. I will update this evening. I […]
  • Allergies, Anyone?
    I was waiting to post until I had some ”real” flower pics. The plan was to take the real camera and a tripod out for a photo shoot. That hasn’t happened. No problems, I have just been wrapped up in my game. An update came out for my […]
