FIL doing much better

Sunday, September 15, 2013

So excited as my FIL finally seems to be like his old self. I think he was really dehydrated and laying on his back for so long just had all his systems off. He was put on IV and catheter and they are forcing liquids to make his kidneys work more to regulate his blood pressure. I was so happy visiting him yesterday as he was walking around and then we got him settled in his favorite old chair with all his "toys" around him. He seemed so very happy and said he finally felt "at home" in his chair. My DH and I are going to look into a better chair for him. They have one of those back stores here in Guadalajara so we might look into one of those.

Boy is it chilly, dark, wet and rainy here. According to our neighbor who is a weather nut we are getting caught between two storms. I will have to bundle up to walk the doggies this morning. I also pray that we do not lose power today as both of our football teams are on TV and we get them today. The Eagles and the Seahawks. I guess if we lose power we will have to run the generator. Of course with this weather we also have TV signal challenges. But here's to hoping we can get both games and all will be good and of course we hope both our teams win. The Huskies won yesterday so we were happy about that. Too bad we couldn't see that game. I love football season.

I do hope all of you are having a good week end.
Have a terrific day.

    FIL looks great!! Wonderful!
When I saw the storm-that-became-Irene on the site, I hoped it would stay east of you. Surely the electricity and tv wouldn't dare disrupt your football viewing!! (here's hoping!?)

    Glad to hear the news. Looking at the excellent medical care your FIL is receiving in Mexico, not sure why your DH still wants to move back to the States.

    What type of clothing do you have for exercise when windy or wet?
I noticed that when I have the proper clothing, I do much more outside stuff. Now there's a Mavic wind and water proof jacket on my list, so when it's a bit windy-wet, I can still go by bike.

    Your fil looks very content in his chair.....but a new chair will most likely make him feel even better..Hope the storms aren't too severe. emoticon
