Kai is in my make-shift hospital room (Caleb and Kai in twin beds next to one another). He is medicated from the pain but feeling better and after a full day of house cleaning, sorting, unpacking, loads of laundry at Carol's house,cleaning again- we are settled in for the duration. Carol and Jenny spent most of the day with me and Max ran errands. Had a visit from the nurse and will start into a home routine with PT, OT and Speech tomorrow. I was at first questioning my decision about coming home instead of going to a nursing situation, which is what was suggested, but now I am certain that in spite of the extra work load on the family, it is best. Spudly's cold nose on Caleb's face first thing in the morn was the first sign among many that this is where he needs to be.
As far as the generator - my good friend Donald brought a little one by yesterday so we could wash Caleb up and do dishes...it was not powerful enough to run a household - so like you, we did the storm in true Fleetian style. As of yesterday around 3- we have power! I am proud of the way the boys do so well under adverse situations..power outage to them at a young age meant staying up late and playing poker by candle light. I just didn't give them whiskey or cigars, but other than that - they looked like profesional card sharks.
I am coming to get my wine Kevin -- before you and all the towns folks decide that it would be better to make a toast to us
and celebrate with my gift - I know how this works. I am a fan of Steinbeck - and that is just what the paisanos would do! Thank you for the marvelous gift - I will put it to good use.
I have ordered tees and hoodies and as soon as they arrive I will give you sizes and cots and we will start shipping......meanwhile-- thanks for all the continued well wishes and for the love. Caleb is going to make it!! Mumsie
