Hello My Friends, Hello!

We are back from Petaluma. Daughter and new grandson doing well. She is home, Lucas still in hospital hopefully home this Saturday.

We finally got a room on base in guest quarters. Gramps here could not handle staying with the kids, even though we had our oun room. I needed a hide out period. Had to increase meds while there just to try and cope. Am Losing control of my emotions and ability to keep calm and mouth shut.

Came home sick again. But we have figured out the problem, their is mold and mildew all over tha t base and I am highly alergic to mold. So from now on will have to build up with antihistamines before we go.

Now to start back on the pond. God this disease just makes me not want to do things , forget what the hell I am doing and really now mly emotions and starting to not care about others, they are starting not to exist for me. I have a very hard time writing on this thing now. Mind wanders toooo much. But still can get out something. Body is starting to rule itself and not tell me. Eating I forget to eat or tha t I ate real pain.

Until we meet again.

God Bless You & This Country of Ours!

Glad all is well. Sorry you got sick. And I hope you get your pond done soon. It is snowing here so no outside work for any of us.

Hey Joe,

Glad to hear all is well with your daughter and grandson. Handling kids for some can be a challenge even without your issues. In the end you were still their for your family when they needed it - hats off to you. Now you are home and can work on your koi pond ..... fish are pretty quite, so, as Mary puts it, you can have a brain break.

Have finished my project ... I am presenting it to the class tomorrow - hope I can do it without crying (that's O.K. have a box of kleenex with me). Thank-you for allowing me and others into your world - it is a great educational lesson that is never ending. I only hope that those listening to it tomorrow learn some of what I have learned and also keep learning, listening and advocating for patient's and their families.

I will continue to read your blog and stay intouch ......

Keep smiling .... my thoughs and prayers are with you and your family

Howdy Joe,

Welcome home. Im so glad everything looks good for the new and wonderful Lucas.

Sorry you got sick,and hope that you feel better soon. The Koi pond sounds like a fun project.
Good luck, and I hope you make quick progress. It'll be a nice place for a comfy chair to just sit and try to have a little peace.

Think about you often.

Love, Cheryl (Arlene's daughter)

Hi, Joe,

It's been awhile since I've commented...I lost your blog! So glad I've found you again. I've been wondering how you are doing. And here I discover you are a new grandparent!

I will be catching up on what you've been up to, now that I've found you again.
