Beth I know what you mean about the nice weather making you want to get things cleaned up. Between the weather and having time at home I'm making the most of it. Today Nick and I cleaned his room top to bottom. It looks and smells great. I did mine a few months ago when I painted so that means that 3 out of 4 bedrooms are completely done Still plenty to do, but I'm making some progress.

Good morning, DDA!

Not a lot to report. Bob is making some progress, and hopefully next week will bring even more. He has a smaller trach and a speaking valve now so we can talk again. He has been up off the bed for a few seconds the past few days and they are putting a chair in his room so that maybe he can sit in it for about 30 minutes at a time. The change of position will help him a lot, I am sure. He is down to 140 pounds and doesn't have much padding so he gets uncomfortable very quickly. All the turning and wedge pillows and raising and lowering the bed are just not enough.

Today is his 61st birthday and Kristin and I are going down this afternoon to spend it with him. Normally I would be judging Festival Practice Recitals all day long but my co-workers got together and reworked the day's schedule to eliminate me! I have my new 10:30 class to teach and that is it. I can't go tomorrow, but today should be really good. He told me yesterday that he wanted a big piece of birthday cake. He was furious when the speech therapist and I told him he knew better than that!

I would love to have the time and energy that Beth and Deb have for cleaning. My house is in need of a thorough cleaning but it just isn't going to happen anytime soon!

Good Morning,

I definitely need to get the cleaning bug here, but I'll just have to settle for the straightening bug, lol.

Elin, Tell Bob I wish him a Happy Birthday, it's wonderful to hear he's making new progress, hopefully he'll be able to regain some of his weight soon.

Wish him a Happy Birthday for us. He can't have birthday cake, but maybe a nice Ham dinner for Easter? Something to look forward to. Your coworkers we so nice to do that for you

I remember how crazy busy we were when Hunter was sick. Mom and I ended up power cleaning my house just before his surgery so that there wouldn't be any germs when he came home. I think that was the last time I thoroughly cleaned the whole house. Life gets in the way most of the time

It's great that you can do that. Chris and I have always tried our best to do the same with my parent's pitching in as needed.

Good morning, DDA! More snow here today...I know, it's only February. It is a good thing that today was a scheduled day off for the schools, though, because I am pretty sure that we are out of snow days.

I hope that the bathroom guy shows up this morning. Since he was sick three days last week, he worked Saturday. He told us that he was coming back for 4 hours yesterday and then never showed. It is so close to being done. I was hoping to be able to do things with the kids today and tomorrow, but now he may be here both days. It's not a huge deal, but it's a little frustrating.

I hope that everyone has a good day!

Good morning, DDA!

It is to be in the upper 60s to low 70s today. And then we are to get snow tomorrow.

On a better note... Bob is trach-free! The trach tube kept popping out and he seemed to be doing well without it, so the doctor removed the whole thing this morning. He is now breathing regular room air and keeping his stats where they need to be. On to the swallow test on Thursday!
