First full day in Lincoln.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

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 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!!!

    Welcome to Lincoln. You must be staying out by Walmart. I get out there sometimes, although it's on the other side of town from me.
    We are west of Lincoln on an acreage, but that one is our closest Walmart. They are building a new one on South 27th Street, that should be open in the next several months, so I probably won't be heading so far East then.

    Sorry for your loss, hope your sister-in-law is okay. I read these stories with new interest now, with my own hubby's health problems, and pray that I can be strong and brave when I need to be.

    I hope there is not too much sadness at the passing of your brother-in-law. It sounds like everyone is being very positive.

    Kerry, I DO BELIEVE in ANGELS! Spirits, Loved Ones, our Protectors, I believe,
    watch over us and guide us, in so many ways. Be it avoiding danger, finding people, places, and things "WE NEED," or helping us to cross over. So I most certainly believe in what was seen, and heard. Feel comfort in that thought.

    I am sure it was a pleasure at the cabin with family, and I am GLAD you got to enjoy it. As for the game....I'm with you, sitting on the ground, I would not be okay with. Even though I CAN get up and down, it still is a hassle for me. So my fingers will be crossed, hoping you can get great seats.

    Enjoy the time with family, and friends, and have a SAFE, trip back home.

    Kerry it sounds like your BIL was ready to go. It appears your SIL is dealing pretty well.

    Having fun at the lake with the family. How wonderful. As far as the game. I love baseball but I would not want to sit on the ground for hours!
