Out and About

Karen had a need to get out of the house for a little bit yesterday[Monday] so we made a run to the post office, Walgreen's [for my meds, that were ordered on line before I left Missouri] and Sonic for a 1/2 price drink [during 'happy hour'!] Yay!

Today we went to Subway for lunch[the kids were off school for Veteran's Day] and took Jacob by two places to find out about doing some community service for a Boy Scout project he is working on. They were "not accepting community service help at this time". So he will have to look elsewhere.
Karen got a 'follow up' call from the surgeons office today and has an appointment there for Thursday. She has more use of her left arm and hand every day, but will be really glad to get rid of the drain in the incision in a few days. Check her blogsite for a few pictures she has posted.

Things are progressing very well here. Ron is heading home tomorrow, but I will stay a few more weeks--at least until they decide what kind of further treatment she will need. I have already done some Christmas shopping on-line before I came out here. Maybe I can get most of the rest of it done that way, too.

Thanks for your continued prayers. God has blessed us in so many ways!

I'm so glad you are there to take care of her. It puts my mind at ease to know she has her mamma there ;). Please let me know if you need any help with some online shopping. I know this great site that has some steals and deals ;)

I am so glad that you are able to be out there to take care of Karen. I am glad to hear that she is doing well. I can't believe she ventured out of the house! Actually I guess I can. I know she doesn't like to sit still for too long. :)

Thanks for the update Judy. I know Karen appreciates all you are doing for her and the rest of the family.

Happy shopping!
