I started my day with a nice healthy breakfast at the motel and then we headed to my sister-in-law's home. We visited with her for a while-she is doing much better than I thought she would. She told us how Joe told her that a really bright lady kept coming and wanted him to take her hand but he refused. She told him that he needed to take her hand so she could take him where there was no more pain. The hospice nurse was with her at the end taking his vitals. Linda said "he's gone" and she said, "no, he still has a pulse..no it's gone". Linda has an insurance agent friend who is going to go with her to get some things taken care of which should be a huge help.
After that we went to Applebees for lunch with my brother, his daughter and my mom. Larry and I took mom home and then we changed clothes-I need my jeans since the day had turned rather cool-and headed out to the Lake House my sister's husband owns. We got to visit with all 4 of my siblings and my dad and stepmom. Two of my sister's 3 kids were there with their kids and dogs along with a couple other dogs belonging to my sister and another brother. We had a great day but of course I ate too much. I did track it all as well as I could since I didn't weigh or measure anything.
We will be taking Larry's sister out to lunch one of these days and my husband is planning a trip to the College World Series in Lincoln and hoping we can get a seat. I won't be happy if I'm expected to sit on the ground!!!
