Shiloh, IL (Hi 76 Lo 64) Went from 105 to 70's with a storm this week.
I would like to give a good word for those helping with Jim. I seldom do "ads" but the PT, OT and speech has been tremendous from the company of SIVNA. Southwestern Illinois Visiting Nurse Association. If you need help and you're in the St. Louis area (Illinois side) please give them a call.
This week was fun and sad at the same time. Jim's family came in from NC. Sharon, Robin and Johnny stayed from Monday to Friday evening. Frank and his wife Angie had two extra beds for Johnny and Robin and Sharon stayed with us. The two gals are caretakers by trade so I knew their brother was in good hands.
Monday morning the nurse came and I waited for her then went over to my sisters in Missouri. I wanted some down time and get some much needed sleep. I can sleep fairly well at nights, but it's not a deep sleep waiting for Jim to move or wanting to go to bathroom, so it was good to sleep nine hours straight.
Our youngest son, Rick came down from Chicago and stayed in motel while he worked. They had a great time all meeting at our place in the evenings and being with Jim. Tuesday they went to Frank's for a shrimp dinner. The shrimp was caught in NC from the family members that shrimp for a living. (Click on the pictures to enlarge).
