Thanks. I spent a few hours with him today, and it wasn't as bad as it originally seemed. Last night he didn't have control of his legs, but when I got there it was all we could do to keep him in bed, he kept wanting to get up and go make himself a sandwich. He's disoriented and in a lot of pain from the fall, but as long as he's ambulatory he's a fairly happy camper. I mainly don't like the idea of the choice for him being between the ability to walk and a surgery he's not likely to survive, which was the choice we were potentially looking at when we first took him to the ER. He'll be 90 in a few months, and has said multiple times he's okay with the idea of dying as long as he never has to be bedridden.

Yep, we should probably all start taking Airborne as preventive measures if we're not sick already! I meant to get a flu shot and somehow missed it this year ...

Thanks for all the well wishes. FIL is recovering. It's just taking him longer than he had hoped. On the plus side he lost more weight as a result and he told me his diabetes has never been this good since he was diagnosed. He was able to indulge in things like Thanksgiving pie.
That's something of a silver lining at least ... when is the drop-dead date on needing the decision?

I told DH tonight that 3 weeks from tonight, or 2 weeks from tonight, I will be driving him bonkers with my last minute excitement and packing.

We had a lovely day thanks - we laid round in our pyjamas and played board games, ate ice-cream and she played with her new dolls. She is a doll freak, she collects them and has shelves lined with collectibles. Saves every penny for them. So that she had something to open on her birthday we got a Monster High doll (Lagoona Blue) and so did her grandparents (Abbey Bominable) and tomorrow is the big AG day so she is very excited! I have no idea where she gets the doll collecting thing from

Hope you all are having an enjoyable day!
Oh, I love scrapbook shopping but since they closed the Archiver's 15 minutes from my house, I haven't bought a thing (which is probably a blessing in disguise)! I'm sure there are things I really need, though. I really need to get back in the swing of scrapbooking and these Disney trips usually give me a much needed kick in the pants!

Last week at the family party FIL looked good and we decided to go with Plan A plus wheelchair. So I booked the chair and spent the week working on decorations for both rooms. What I did not realize was that for the next two days after the party, he could barely move around the house. It's not just a question of how far he can walk, but how long he can even sit up without exhausting himself. Yesterday they came over around 2pm and by 6pm his back hurt from sitting up and supporting the neck brace. He just isn't going to be able to do it and he'll likely be miserable if he tries.

I'm at work until 1pm today. So trying not to think too hard.
Oh, NO! I'm really sorry for the disappointment, Terri. I hate to say it but better to realize this now than later. It just takes longer for people to heal the older they/we get. He probably needs to concentrate on getting better and it may take longer than originally expected.

Sigh. I'm still hoping for a Crystal Palace one of my MK mornings! I really think it's just the luck of the draw!

I hope they get all this straightened out ASAP. Poor guy

I suspect that once everyone is past the holiday weekend, we will pick up the pace. Especially since some people leave next week!

I'm so excited for all the folks who are in the single digits. We're still 19 days away here, but that's OK. My ADRs are finally finalized and I just need to pack and figure out my morning touring plans for each part. Not bad.

I love to hear things like this......which is, of course, what the holidays are all about!

We aren't doing any ADRs..so I'm good there. Just feeling really really nervous.
Sometimes it's fun to fly by the seat of your pants! Since you don't have any ADRs, there really isn't any need to be anywhere at any certain time.

It's like the major holiday parade for the township and all three of us are in the parade
I have NO idea when I'll be doing my christmas cookie baking! I baked over 30 doz cookies last year!

Val, I must have missed this tidbit regarding your bro. Is he in the high school marching band or college? My sweet sil (who passed away 1.5 years ago) was a music teacher/high school band leader in Youngstown. I love half-time shows!
