Quiet Park

Well 90% of the Winter Texans are either back home or on their way!! Safe Travels everyone. See you all in the Fall. Now its time to begin all the outdoor work, mowing, weedeating, water line repairs, etc. Thank goodness I have help this summer!! But I do love to mow....No new news on Neil. Will have to call and see if they are up for coffee one night this week again. Enjoyed visiting with them and want to stay on top of his progress! Well back to work for now.

Nice Day

Well another beautiful day in South Texas....90 degrees and wonderful breeze. Sunshine is plentiful but we sure do need some rain. Trees are out in leaf again...even though they really are not bare very long down here. Lots of remaining Winter Texans are hitting the road in the morning so things are really getting quiet. My Summer JAMS begin Friday night. Looking forward to those again!! All for tonight

Been to Long

Well sorry its been over a week since I got on this. Nothing to much has gone on except people leaving in droves for the North....why they are in a rush to get back to the cold damp weather I have no
Went to Neil & Carol's last night and had a nice long visit. Neil is making great progress physically. His mental issues will take longer I'm sure. He is having great difficulty reading or writing and spelling is out of the question for right now but it will come. I was shocked to hear he didn't know what to do with the computer or even the mouse. But it will come back in time. Carol said they will start his "brain homework" in a week or so. It was truely great to see him up and walking even though he is using a walker. He needs to gain alot of weight back but that too will come in time. Carol is trying her best to "fatten" him up. He said he is even eating things he would never dreamed he would touch years ago!!! His sense of humor is coming back slowly and that was great to see also.

Great News

Carol just called and Neil got HOME about an hour ago!! He was overwhelmed as the residents lined the roadway to welcome him. It will be a long road yet for both of them. daily trips to rehab, etc but he is making progress!!!

Well talked to Carol today and Neil did NOT get to come home yet. His blood work has not come back the way they wanted it yet. she is hoping for maybe tomarrow....I guess their park (Lemon Tree) is holding a benefit spaghetti dinner this coming tuesday so we will definately plan on attending. He was outside the hospital when I called holding MiMi (their dog). That always cheers him up.
Nothing else much new. Weather has been great lately. Alittle chilly int he mornings but that ends tonight. We will be back in the high 50's and low 60's at night and mid to upper 80's daytime.

Well hoping this week is alittle quieter than the past one. Our RV friends are beginning to leave for their Northern homes. Visited Neil yesterday and was shocked to learn that he wil be going home from the hospital this Thursday. What a great surprise. his progress is slow but improving. They will live in a friends park model till he can regain enough mobility to either  head to IN or move back into their 5th wheel. Not sure how long that will take but each day and a time!!

Well its been a very busy few days. Have not had time to write a thing on this. To much happening right now I guess.Visited Neil on Sunday and he was doing great. Will visit him again this sunday after church. Our park minister is going to take them communion. Weather down here has been great. Very warm and sunny. We really need some rain bad but I'm sure it will come this summer. Probably more than we want. Trees are all green again with new growth. Grass is still very brown and ugly but it will get better as we get some rain. Other than that, nothing much new for now.
